Collagen is a major structural component of our bodies, joints, muscles and skin, and what’s noticeable in the fight against ageing is that our skin is effected by various factors including natural aging, ultraviolet radiation, hormones and nutrition and other environmental forces. We start to lose about 1% to 2% per year of our naturally produced collagen from around the age of 25, and even more if you consider smoking, intake of sugars, polution and UV rays….. so by our 50’s we’ve lost over half the amount of collagen in our bodies – which is what we call ‘ageing’ and is most noticeable in our skin and hair quality – which therefore results in wrinkles, loose or sagging skin, finer, greying, thinning hair, as well as weaker joints. If you start to take collagen, it’ll help to support and increase the body’s collagen levels as well as the production of this super protein to replenish it. Actually, our bodies produce collagen naturally which is in abundance when we’re young, but unfortunately collagen production starts to decline at about age 25, and continues, especially in women in their 40s and after menopause.
When you start to consume natural hydrolyzed collagen, you should see noticeably firmer and smoother skin with fewer wrinkles, an improved skin surface structure, reduced cellulite, improved hair health and faster nail growth, plus even improved joints and bone health as well. As collagen is recognised by the fibroblast cells in the dermal layer of our skin, it results in an increased production of dermal collagen replacing what is lost through aging and environmental influences. As the most abundant protein in our bodies, it’s the ‘glue’ of all our connective tissues and holds our bodies ‘together’, and is the second most abundant substance in our body behind water and is the building block of all our tissues. Collagen makes up 75% of our skin, over 90% of our ligaments and tendons and 35% of our bones – so, yup, it’s pretty important! But why you’re here and reading this info on our website is to learn how collagen is responsible for many other structures of our body’s make up like our skin, hair, nails, joints and cartilage.
Fusspot Beauty Tea with hydrolyzed collagen and varying tea blends are specifically created to boost antioxidants and beauty from within. The collagen in our Beauty Teas is easily digested and soluble in a warm, cold or hot liquid, and we recommend having two serves per day to contribute towards enhanced beauty from within! Our Beauty Tea blends are offered in Morning and Evening and any-time blends, and contribute towards a portion of our daily collagen requirements needed to support healthy hair, skin, nails, bone and joint health, and also muscle recovery, and should be consumed in conjunction with foods that help promote natural collagen production along with Vitamin C which assists in the absorption of collagen in our bodies.

Don’t worry – the hydrolyzed collagen you can see in your loose leaf and in your teabags is completely normal, and there is some excess that will fall out! It’s not that you’ll be losing that amount, because we’ve ensured that we have overfilled each blend so that you gain the maximum amount possible in each serve. Don’t be alarmed, the collagen is definitely there in every serving but that’s why we ask you to shake your loose leaf pouch first to disperse it, and why your teabags are in their foil inner bag… We use pyramid shaped tea-bags which allows the large, hand picked tea leaves and herbs to swirl around well inside the bag and they also show what’s inside. You may have noticed most basic tea bags are non-see through, and with good reason, as many cheaper brands contain a low quality grit of tea leaves – but not Fusspot Beauty Teas – our tea is hiigh quality tea – hence the use of pyramid bags which are transparent and the tea leaves are showcased proudly – so a little of the collagen which is very fine does escape in each serve, but it is easily absorbed once you pour your hot or cold water over the tea blend – so it’s very normal that some does fall out.
We are all becoming far more environmentally conscious and purchasing more and more eco-friendly and green products, so you’ll be happy to know that our pyramid teabags are made from Soilon which is a lactic acid derived from corn-starch, and which is completely biodegradable, compostable, and sustainable without compromising the quality of the tea inside the bag and can withstand the addition of hot water. These bags will completely break down, without contributing to the plastic pollution in the form of microplastics! Furthermore, both the non-bleached string and the tag of the tea bag are made of the same material. The whole teabag is biodegradable – that’s why we are only able to print on one side of our tea-tags because we chose this specific material…. And we love that!
Each blend has been formulated with various beauty, skin, and health considerations in mind to give you a boost and to get a glow or to cleanse your body! If you look on each of our product pages, the list of ingredients of each blend is shown, and the benefits of each herb is outlined. You can also see a topline highlight feature outlining why each specific tea blend has been created and what it’ll support.
Each tea blend outlines whether it has caffeine in it or not, so it’s up to you whether your body reacts well to having caffeine at night or not. The Evening Teas have been created to assist you to relax, calm down and rest, but you can drink them any time of the day, they won’t ‘knock you out’! If you’re ok drinking caffeine ( ie: green or black tea) in the afternoons or evenings, enjoy the full range!!! You’re drinking the benefits!
Fusspot Beauty Teas are most effective within the first six months of purchase or when they’ve been opened…. But if you want to keep it longer, you can store it in an air-tight ziplock bag placed in a cool and dry place. Most of our Beauty Teas have a shelf life of 2 years, but check the label of your package.
Yes, all our tea are gluten free.
