Want to work on your beauty inside out? Fusspot Collagen Beauty Tea might be just thing for you. We caught up with founder Tanya from Fusspot Collagen Beauty Tea to get the low down on what Fusspot is all about and why drinking collagen might just be the best thing for your beauty regime.
What inspired the formation of Fusspot?
Fusspot Collagen Beauty Tea started with an idea I came up with whilst drinking yet another cup of tea one morning whilst on a four day getaway down the coast. I was on my 3 rd cup of tea that morning, and because I do drink a lot of tea, like a lot… I just started googling the benefits of tea and was delighted by what I found. Over the next few weeks I started to really discover and research all about the benefits of tea, how globally tea has been used for centuries almost like a remedy as it’s so good for your overall health, wellbeing, anti-ageing and of course for your skin, and researched more about the variations of teas, tisanes and herbs, roots, plants and florals, and about how the antioxidants, polyphenols and catchetins in tea are so beneficial for
Meanwhile, I also had been hearing a lot about hydrolyzed collagen peptides and was extremely curious, (we’re all getting older, and I was doing a lot of personal research into this space anyway for my own personal beauty needs), and being the avid tea drinker – well…. the idea of Fusspot sparked!!! It was still only a concept, so I had to investigate the feasibility…. like…. “how am I going to make this happen?” It became a mission to build a brand that I was excited about and proud of, that was sassy and irreverent and bold! A true hybrid tea/beauty/supplement product that is a new way to consume beauty benefits! And of course being Australian owned and made.
After doing a lot of research, travelling overseas to trade fairs, meeting global and local tea suppliers, and finding a premium collagen source, I had found an idea that combined two things that I could benefit from and was interested in, and that I believed that there were many others like me out there who would find this new hybrid product of interest and benefit as well!!
What is beauty tea and how does it work?
Fusspot Collagen Beauty Teas are a new way of consuming your beauty boost – tea as a beauty product! Fusspot teas help support and nourish your beauty from within – specifically formulated organic teas developed in conjunction with a Tea Master and then infused with premium hydrolyzed collagen peptides that support and stimulate your skin for noticeably firmer and smoother skin with fewer wrinkles and fine lines, and enhancing the skins’ hydration, texture and elasticity. We use a premium concentrated collagen that requires a much smaller serving than other collagen supplements in the market, as some collagen brands will require you to have a 13g serve of powder mostly made up of sugars, protein and flavours. The hydrolyzed collagen peptides we have sourced are derived from grass-fed, bovine collagen which has been specifically optimised for beauty applications, so our Fusspot Tea range will help enhance skin texture and elasticity, grow thicker hair and stronger, faster-growing nails, improved joint and tendon health, as well as super-boost your overall wellbeing, health and beauty from within. We offer 11 various organic blends that all combine premium collagen to support
your skin and inner beauty, along with our organic tea’s natural antioxidants and polyphenols to really give you a super-boost by drinking two cups daily, consistently, as collagen needs to build up in your system.
What are the benefits we could expect from ingesting collagen?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies and is vital for the health of our skin, hair, nails, bones, joints and connective tissues, muscles, gut, and overall wellbeing. We start to lose approx. 1% to 2% of our body’s natural collagen production per year from our mid 20’s, so if you’re in your 30s and 40s, it’s all about maintenance and prevention, if you’re in your 50’s it’s all about management, as you’ll have lost somewhere between 20% to 30% of your body’s natural collagen and this is what we call ageing – when we start to see wrinkles, our skin starts to sag, and our skin starts to look lacklustre without that dewy, smooth glow. Also, our nails become more brittle and can split easily as we age, and our hair starts to get thinner and can go grey. Joint health isn’t talked about a lot, but as we age, our joints and tendons also become impacted so think about your knees, shoulders, hips – these also benefit from ingesting collagen. Lastly – by drinking tea, we know that our bodies respond to the anti-aging benefits of both black and green teas, but we have created some herbal teas that are specifically formulated to boost your complexion, such as various florals, herbs and roots that are almost like ancient old remedies that have been used for centuries to help improve ailments. It’s a win-win all round!
What are some of the key products from the range that you recommend to those that want to give it a go for the first time?
