      Hi Marinel, our products, Pure Gold Collagen and Pure Gold Collagen Mini contain Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. You can find these on the product page:

      Many of our products contain a selection of the listed ingredients in this blog post but unfortunately, they are not yet available in your country. You currently won’t find salicylic acid and glycolic acid in our products as they are more likely to be in topical products as an exfoliating compound.

      We hope you found this blog post to be informative and I hope I have helped to answer your question. If you liked this then please do subscribe to our newsletter so you can get our fun tips in your inbox.
      Thanks so much from the Gold Collagen team! :)
