The Interview: Collagen: The Sun-Protection Connection

An interview with Richard Passwater Jr.

By Jason Sebeslav

Richard Passwater, Jr. works for Bio Minerals NV, the Belgian manufacturer of BioSil®. Richard has held a variety of technical, sales and quality control positions in the dietary supplement industry and has written over 90 articles, co-authored two peer-reviewed scientific studies and is a co-inventor of three patents. He speaks about collagen and related health topics around the world.

Jason Sebeslav: I recently read a health article that suggested ditching toxic sunscreens and instead eating more carotenoids,
flavonoids and polyphenols as well as collagen-forming foods, like bone broth and gelatin. I see also that some sunscreens now contain collagen. What’s the connection between these compounds and sun protection?

Richard Passwater Jr.: Sunscreen products contain agents that can either absorb or reflect UV radiation at the skin surface thereby protecting the skin. A significant percentage of ingested carotenoids, flavonoids and polyphenols get deposited into the skin. These natural phytonutrients are capable of absorbing UV radiation to prevent direct damage to cells and DNA. Collagen makes up about 75% of the dry weight of skin. It provides strength, thickness, suppleness and also reflects light. Much of the light that hits the skin goes through the outer layer (epidermis) into the dermis. The more collagen someone has in their dermis, the more of that light gets reflected.
