Frequently Asked Questions

Hydrolyzed collagen is made up of denatured collagen peptides. Though hydrolyzed collagen is made up of the same building blocks as native collagen, its structure is completely different. Therefore, it does not preserve the natural healing properties of the native collagen molecule. Kollagen™ products are made from non-hydrolyzed collagen in its native form.

Yes. They act as a buffer to maintain a slightly acidic pH in the wound bed.

An elevated wound pH may increase the effectiveness of degradative enzymes which break down the wound bed.

Actually, the collagen molecule as preserved by our Kollagen™ technology has hemostatic properties that help stop bleeding. The collagen molecule plays a vitalrole in all four phases of wound healing, of which hemostasis is the first.
