#11 Collagen is one of many skin care products made by the brand Elegance. According to the Elegance website, its products have been developed by dermatologists and doctors from around the world. Its product line focuses on treatment of problem skin, such as hyper-pigmentation, wrinkles, scarring, acne, and sun-damaged skin. Elegance’s products are identified by number. Its Collagen product is #11, hence the product name Elegance #11.
According to the Elegance website, Elegance #11 Collagen works by replenishing the skin’s natural collagen and increasing elasticity, thereby smoothing out lines. Elegance provides some before and after pictures on its website but does not indicate which of its products was used in each case to obtain the results. Elegance indicates that its return policy is that only unopened product packages may be returned within the first 15 days. Return shipping costs are the responsibility of the consumer.
Elegance #11 Collagen contains collagen and that is about all that is apparent from the Elegance website. There is no full ingredient list available as there is for other Elegance products. It is also unclear what the source of the collagen or its concentration is. Because of this, those with skin allergies or sensitive skin may want to be careful about using this product before knowing exactly what’s in it.
Collagen itself is an effective ingredient for stimulating the body’s natural collagen production and improving tone and elasticity of skin. However, the best anti-wrinkle formulations also include peptides, such as Matrixyl 3000 and Argiriline, which have been proven effective at reducing wrinkles. There is no indication that these ingredients are present in Elegance #11 Collagen.

The Bottom Line
Collagen is an effective part of the skin care regimen for those with mature skin, and Elegance #11 Collagen may be a useful addition to that regimen. But because the company does not appear to reveal a full ingredient list or provide a guarantee after the product has been used, it is difficult to recommend purchasing this product. There are thousands of anti-wrinkle products on the market and the very best ones contain peptides along with collagen for the most effective results. You may wish to compare some of these other proven effective products with Elegance #11 Collagen before purchase. Keep in mind that if you buy this product, you will not be able to get your money back if it does not live up to the hype or if it causes an allergic reaction.
