Part of my pursuit involves creation adult new words. The universe is changing rapidly, so it is useful to find new ways to report it. But if we have schooled one thing, it is that a made-up word usually works if we are regulating it to report something that already exists though for that difference have, historically, failed.
Collagin is not a good instance of this. Yes, it is done up, though it reads some-more like a typographical error. Collagin is solitaire that contains collagen. It is a invention of dual immature gintrepreuners (also their word) from Oxford, whose tag is called Young in Spirit (also theirs). They brew – and we quote – “beauty and splash together” to emanate a comparatively internal product, strong in a Midlands and bottled in Lancashire. Collagen, that is meant to be good for your skin, is literally combined in powdered form during a distillery process. You can't ambience it, and a ethanol does not destroy it.
Now, it is value mentioning that while collagen is a protein that provides energy, a thought of celebration it in a solitaire and tonic is problematic; perplexing to approach collagen towards a skin with a splash is like perplexing to obstruct a Nile with a spoon. The Canadian highbrow Timothy Caulfield, a male who spends his time debunking beauty cons, once told me: “We are always looking for an easy repair and we consider these ingestibles have discerning appeal. If we age since a collagen is violation down, well, maybe eating collagen will help! But, alas, a bodies don’t work that way.”
Still, a ingestible-beauty-products attention is projected to be value £160bn worldwide by 2022 and collagen stays something of a wellness buzzword – that is substantially because Collagin cumulative a £50,000 investment for a 30% share of a business on Dragons’ Den progressing this month. It is now sole in John Lewis.
I churned it with Fever-Tree tonic which, like gin, has depressed to a marketers – a universe might have left to a dogs though a posh tonic code stays one of Britain’s best-performing companies. It tastes excellent – we got records of juniper, a bit of orange and something floral. But it was a aftertaste – a concept fear of removing aged churned with a common enterprise to facade that fear by removing crushed – that unequivocally lingered in my mouth.
Until recently, we couldn’t splash gin. It was my “tequila” – we all have “a tequila” – and this was wholly my fault. In a early noughties we went to a celebration in a margin and drank too most of it neat. we wasn’t sick, though it meant we didn’t splash solitaire for some time afterwards. we do now. And would substantially splash this again. But not if we told me what it was.
