Our mission was to create the most effective collagen supplement on the market in the most environmentally sustainable way. Collagen that is good for you and good for the planet.
At Ingenious we are passionate about the power of proven science and making skin health accessible to everyone. Our new-generation collagen supplements use patented technology to ensure maximum absorption of the finest, most sustainably-sourced, bio-available ingredients: marine collagen peptides, hyaluronic acid and natural astaxanthin.
All our ingredients are of highest quality. Our protected collagen is sourced from the skin of free-swimming Tilapia fish. Our multi-molecular hyaluronic acid uses the latest innovation in this space and is 20% more effective than standard HA. All our natural astaxanthin is from micro-algae sourced exclusively from a pristine archipelago in Sweden.
To maintain the potency and purity of our supplements we use zero additives, fillers, binding agents, flow agents or preservatives. As a result our capsules are hand-filled in small batches. All our packaging is fully recyclable using as little plastic as possible. At Ingenious we believe in combining science and sustainability for the wellbeing of our customers and the planet.
Our KEY PEOPLE
David Hyland CEng MSc MBA
Founder and Head of Product Development
A business systems consultant specialising in Pharmaceutical R&D, David’s Ingenious journey began with a paper in the Harvard Medical Journal. This paper examined the effect of collagen peptides on arthritis, and as David’s wife was experiencing early signs of arthritis, David’s interest was piqued. He began research into collagen, creating an early prototype. However, during initial trials it was found that in addition to helping joints, David’s prototype also resulted in glowing skin, reduced wrinkles, shiny hair and stronger nails. Although research on a supplement for joint conditions continued, the focus now moved to skincare. Having met Pupinder Ghatora some years earlier during a consultancy assignment, David and Pupinder created Colltec Laboratories in 2014; launching the Ingenious brand and their first product Ingenious Beauty.

PUPINDER GHATORA MPharm MRPharmS SCS
Founder and CEO
An award-winning pharmacist who has been honoured at 10 Downing Street, Pupinder Ghatora’s interest in the body stems from his own journey. After building up a successful pharmacy, (winning Pharmacist of the Year and his business later being awarded Pharmacy of the Year) Pupinder was regularly invited to consult on large pharmaceutical projects. It was on one of these projects that Pupinder met David Hyland, where they bonded over their shared passion for human biochemistry and decided to collaborate. However, shortly after Pupinder and David Hyland began their Ingenious journey together, Pupinder suffered a potentially life-altering medical emergency. He was taking an early prototype of Ingenious Beauty at the time and credits the incredible power of collagen for speeding up his recovery. Read more about Pupinder’s story here.
