Youthology is a collagen brand that made its way onto the market in 2021. Manufactured and developed in South Africa, Youthology incorporates a “blend of the finest ingredients in the world. Ultra-purified and hydrolysed, highly bioavailable and intensely bioactive.”
“Clinical trials show that after just 4 to 8 weeks of using the high-performance type l, ll and lll peptides in Youthology, collagen is restored in the body by up to 65%, wrinkles are reduced by 40%, skin elasticity improves by 30%, joint pain decreases by 60%, with all results improving with continued use.“
Those are some impressive stats! So, the question is, do these claims ring true? I have been trying the collagen for a few weeks now, and here are my opinions on Youthology and some extra info to keep you informed.
The collagen powder is creamy-white in colour and has the slightest odour to it, which is not too potent. I really enjoyed the powder in coffee and hot chocolate, where I found it to be tasteless.
When tried it in a cooler drink, I got the tiniest taste of chicken (almost like chicken soup). The powder would go great in other drinks and foods too; such as smoothies, scrambled eggs, stews, and soups, to name a few.
I started taking the collagen powder a few weeks ago and have noticed growth in my nails – this has been the most noticeable change, my nails have grown very long very fast and are exceptionally strong. Growth has also been noticeable, albeit slight, in my hair.
Another change I have seen in myself is my energy levels. A benefit I was not expecting and it took me by surprise. I have more energy and my mood seems to have improved – an added bonus which is most welcome!
On the packaging side of things: A sleek black-designed tubes and sachet box are available at Youthology in their online store. Both products are packaged beautifully and the tubes “have a low environmental impact” and can be reused.
With the added bonus of Hyaluronic Acid and Chondroitin Sulfate in their collagen powders, Youthology might just be our go-to brand of collagen from now on. The benefits have already presented themselves in a few weeks of use, and we highly recommend this brand if you are looking into taking a daily dose of collagen.

What The Founder Says
- What makes Youthology Bio-active Collagen Powder so special?
Youthology contains all 3 collagen peptides, types I, II and III, at optimal levels. Collagen type II and III are specifically aimed at improving the appearance and health of skin, hair and nails and contributing to gut health. But importantly, we have chosen to also include the premium type II collagen in our formulation – the only collagen peptide which contributes so effectively to joint restoration and health – surely an essential component for overall youthfulness? Yes!
Our all-imported ingredients are highly purified, bioavailable and intensely bioactive. This means these collagen peptides are detected in the bloodstream within 30 minutes after consumption and then readily absorbed instead of digested.
Clinical trials show that after just 4 to 8 weeks of using the high-performance type l, ll and lll peptides in Youthology, collagen is restored in the body by up to 65%, wrinkles depth decreases by 40%, skin elasticity by 30%, joint pain decreases by 60%, with percentages increasing with continued use.
Youthology is ultra-purified so it’s almost tasteless – or perhaps adds an almost creamer taste to your coffee. You can pop it into your smoothie, yoghurt or just down it dissolved in water to ensure you get your consistent daily dose of 10-20mg.
- So, what is collagen and where does it come from?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body – it forms our body matrix and, as such, acts as the scaffolding that contributes to the support structure of our skin, hair, nails, bones, muscles and joints. Our collagen products are of bovine and chicken source, free-range, hormone-free and Halaal. It is extremely highly purified and hydrolysed and derived from the cartilage, connective tissue, skin and bone of free-range and pasture-fed animals.
- What inspired you to bring your own collagen brand to the market?
As a product and brand developer, I am sometimes inspired to create a product I personally would like to use but cannot find on the market exactly as I would like it. To be honest, I was sceptical about whether the “hot and happening” collagen market could really support the claims it was making, or whether most of the collagen consumed just got digested and went straight through the body. My research led me to understand that not all collagen is created equal.
The purest, most hydrolysed forms are the only ones that are also truly bioavailable and bioactive. And so Youthology was born!
