You’re ready to begin your collagen journey. Think glowing skin, luscious locks, and strong joints. With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to choose the best collagen supplement. Which is better, liquid collagen or powdered collagen? It’s a real dilemma. Break it down …

Why Use Collagen?

Let’s briefly cover the reasons why you should be taking collagen supplements.

Did you know collagen is a multitasker at its best? Not only is it a hero in skincare, but collagen also does wonders for joints, muscles, bones and gut health. The elements, pollution and stress can cause our skin to age faster. Collagen can save the day.

Collagen is the key to plump and youthful skin. However, as we age, our collagen levels start to decline. It’s worth taking a collagen supplement every day to keep your skin healthy and glowing.

Powder vs. Liquid: What is the difference?

What is the biggest difference? The biggest difference is the form! While liquid collagen is already made, collagen powder, well, is powdered. There’s more than just that. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty:

Collagen Content

Depending on the brand, many liquid collagen products contain marine collagen which is a mixture of types I and II. Type I collagen can be found in all parts of the body, except cartilage. It is concentrated most heavily in the skin, hair and nails. Type II collagen is mostly found in cartilage. Powder collagen contains more animal collagen which is higher in type I and III. Type III collagen can be found in the skin, muscles, and blood vessels. Bovine collagen is particularly beneficial for health because it contains both types I and 3.


Check the label to see if there are any hidden ingredients or harmful substances! For flavour and shelf stability, liquid collagen products usually contain more preservatives and additives. Collagen powder is usually more shelf stable and contains less additives, fillers, and other ingredients.

Clinically proven collagen contains all the good stuff, including 6,400mg of hydrolysed collagen, hyaluronic, biotin and vitamins A, C and D. It also includes inulin and zinc, as well as natural flavourings and stevia. If you prefer a vegan option, Dewty Vegan Collagen is the perfect choice!


Powdered collagen is typically cheaper than liquid collagen in UK. Liquid collagen supplements are more expensive because they require a complex manufacturing and packaging process.

Convenience, Sustainability and

Powdered collagen is the winner for its versatility and environmental friendliness. No mess, no fuss! The powdered collagen can be easily added to yoghurts or smoothies.

Powdered collagen is packaged in recyclable pouches. This makes it a more environmentally friendly option than liquid collagen, which comes in single-use containers. The use of multi-serving pouches to scoop powder reduces waste by a significant amount.

Which is more effective – liquid collagen or powder collagen?

Powder has some extra benefits. It is cost-effective and shelf-stable. It has a lower environmental impact and contains less additives and fillers. This makes it closer to pure collagen than liquid collagen drinks. You can also easily add it to your favorite drinks. Several powders, including our Dewty Daily Collagen contain other health-promoting ingredients, such as vitamin C and hyaluronic acids, that support and build your natural collagen reserves.

Whether you choose liquid or powder collagen, in the end you will be supporting your hair, skin, nails and more. If we had to choose, we would go with powder collagen.
