Type I Specialized Hydrolyzed Collagen
A high quality, branded ingredient backed by science and patents, hyCURE® can be incorporated into product formulas, may enhance other ingredients and provides a unique spectrum of 19 amino acids ready for immediate use by the body (in topical and/or nutritional product forms). Native intact collagen requires time for the body to break it down, delaying the body’s ability to use it in the healing process. hyCURE® averages 1/100th the size of native intact collagen. Type I collagen is the principle collagen of skin and bone, and is the most abundant in the body, being the primary structural protein making up connective tissue.
We manufacture private label products utilizing hyCURE® and can develop unique topical and nutritional formulas to meet your needs. hyCURE® has the ability to heal and repair damaged tissue (with applications in skin and wound care, arthritis and overall body wellness). Clinical studies on hyCURE® (also known as CellerateRX®) have proven its safety and efficacy. Biocompatible and biodegradable, hyCURE® (a recognized GRAS ingredient) has been used in plastic surgery, podiatry, dermatology, wound care and osteoarthritic settings with great success.
hyCURE® is a proprietary hydrolyzed collagen for use in chronic and acute wounds. A natural hydrolyzed protein powder (collagen), hyCURE® interacts with the wound site as it forms a gel when mixing with the wound’s exudate and provides a moist healing environment. Collagen is a biological platform for new cell growth1 and supplies nutritive protein directly to the wound site2. Collagen promotes and accelerates cellular regeneration by replicating the natural fibro-connective template3 and provides mechanical protection against physical and bacterial insult4. Hydrolyzed collagen has been experimentally tested as a hemostatic agent and as a tissue adhesive exhibiting the following characteristics: permitting bond formation without undue deformation of tissue, providing complete sealing and having the potential to augment physically weakened tissues (aneurysms)5

|Wound Phases||Wound Needs||Role of Collagen|
|Injury occurs||Stop bleeding||Help blood platelets to form a plug (acts as a natural hemostat)1-2|
|Inflammation||Control drainage, increase blood flow||Wound exudate absorber, provides proper environment conducive to healing process|
|Reaction/Interference||Eliminate factors that interfere with wound healing; infection and necrotic tissue||Absorbs fluid and removes bacteria; provides moist healing environment and wound bed protection|
|Regeneration||Regenerate granulation tissue and restore the epidermis||Attracts cells to wound site, provides cellular matrix for new cell growth, provides for more rapid epithelialization3|
|Closure||Increase tissue strength, so wound may withstand stresses of normal movement||Forms an occlusive gel barrier to maintain optimal temperature and moisture balance; prevents contamination; accelerates tissue remodeling and reduces scarring4|
