Of the more than 28 different types of collagen identified, type I is the most abundant and is found in the dermis, tendons, ligaments, and bone. Collagen is also present in the skin and bones of pigs and cattle, and the skin, bones, and scales of fish, which all have bioactivity in the skin of humans making it safe for human consumption.
