AN INGENIOUS PLAN
Our mission was simple: to create the most effective collagen supplement on the market that was good for both you and the planet
An Ingenious Truth
We believe that good science needs integrity to become great science. To become great, we therefore consider in all our processes: sustainability, responsibility, and wellbeing. Our Ingenious packaging is fully recyclable and uses as little plastic as possible, while our recyclable eco-pouches encourage good habits and minimise our carbon footprint.
Our protected collagen is sourced from the skin of free-swimming Tilapia fish. All our natural astaxanthin is from micro-algae sourced exclusively from a pristine archipelago in Sweden. Our supplements are as pure as they are potent. We have no additives, fillers, binding agents, flow agents, preservatives or any other anti-nutrient. As a result, our capsules are hand-filled in small batches as we will not compromise on our ethos to ensure you are putting only the best and most effective actives inside your body.
Our new-generation collagen supplements use patented technology to ensure maximum absorption of the finest, most sustainably sourced, bio-available ingredients: marine collagen peptides, natural astaxanthin and the latest innovation in multi-molecular hyaluronic acid which is 20 per cent more effective than standard HA.
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.
