Sanitas just released a groundbreaking duo that is changing the way we view collagen. The Colorado-based skincare brand added the (first and only) Micro-Collagen™ mask and serum duo to their range of innovative products, and I could not wait to try them out. Nothing about the duo is micro besides the collagen it’s infused with, and you can expect to see major results that’ll restore your skin, without harming your body or the earth.

Whether you’re looking for brighter skin or tighter skin, Sanitas offers a full line of simple, clean, and effective skin care products that tailor to your skin needs and work as promised. Sanitas is one of my favorites to bless my skin with, and if you’re not familiar with this female-owned brand, definitely check out our more in-depth review of the brand and its products here.


Before getting into these goodies, let’s talk a little bit about their namesake ingredient, Collagen. Collagen is a buzzword in beauty, but it’s actually very important for skin health. Making up 30% of the body’s proteins, this protein provides strength and structure to our skin, bones, muscles, and tendons. Collagen plays a crucial role in anchoring cells together in the body, plus it’s known to help keep the skin firm, stretchy, and resilient. As we age, the collagen in our bodies gradually declines, resulting in progressive wrinkles due to loss of skin elasticity.

To combat this, studies show that adding collagen (topical and digestible) helps slow the aging process in the skin, reduce roughness, and improve skin moisture. Similar to collagen, elastin allows your skin to stretch and shrink back. Your body’s naturally-produced elastin helps keep your skin firm and stretchy, and with aging, the lack of elastin can also result in visible signs of aging like wrinkles and sagging skin.

Sanitas’ groundbreaking Collagen + Elastin Recovery Mask is a first-of-its-kind micro-collagen face mask that lifts and firms collagen-depleted skin. Not only does it attack the signs of aging at the source, but the mask also preserves the skin’s existing collagen and elastin for long-term skin rejuvenation. This restorative mask improves the skin’s resilience and texture by up to 30% and has been shown to reduce crow’s feet and wrinkles by up to 66%.

The bio-intelligent blend of vegan micro-collagen, vegan tropoelastin, fermented reishi mushroom, and niacinamide absorbs into the skin barrier to brighten, regenerate elasticity, and help restore lost volume in just the first use. The healing ingredient, fermented reishi mushroom, is potent and naturally high in beta-glucan which alleviates redness and irritation and locks in hydration.

Generally, collagen molecules are too large to penetrate the skin’s layers. That said, Sanitas created the power-packed mask formulated with vegan collagen that is bioengineered with a linear shape and molecular weight that’s over 20 times smaller than other commercially available forms, allowing it to perform more effectively.

This mess-free mask has a gel-like consistency and feels amazing on the skin. It has a bit of a cooling effect when first applied, and after using, my skin is firm yet soft, giving that vibrant, fresh face feel. To use, apply the mask to your face, neck, and décolleté. After 15 minutes, rinse your face with warm water, or leave the mask on overnight and rinse in the morning. I also like to steam with the mask on for deep hydration! Then, follow up with Sanitas’ new Collagen + Elastin Recovery Serum.

The Collagen + Elastin Recovery Serum is the first ever micro-collagen serum that permeates the skin to lift, firm, and smooth, while also preserving existing collagen and elastin-like the Collagen + Elastin Recovery Mask. The serum utilizes a colloidal gold delivery system bonded to vitamin C and peptides to volumize and plump aging skin, visibly “flash fill” deep lines, and brighten dark spots.

Made with vegan micro-collagen, vegan tropoelastin, and eight different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, this breakthrough product is shown to sculpt facial contours. Combined, the formula also allows you to experience a rapidly restored skin texture and a decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also protecting the skin from urban dust and other environmental aggressors.

To use, apply the serum to a clean face, neck, and décolleté twice a day. I like to spread about two pumps on my whole face and neck while giving my under-eye skin and laugh lines a little extra love. Then, follow up with a moisturizer. For optimal results, pair with the Collagen + Elastin Recovery Mask!
