Summary | Ranking | Marketing | Ingredients | Side Effects | Reviews | Pricing | Pros & Cons | Overall |
Perfotek Collagen is a very affordable Collagen supplement that appears to be ticking all of the most important boxes. Meaning, it is sourced from Grass-Fed and Pasture-Raised animals, it has no additives, and it’s well-rated.
Still, it seems that saving on the price is to be taking too much away from the quality side of things. And so, I wouldn’t prefer it personally.
|Claimed Benefits||Accurate. | It claims to support healthy skin, nails, joints, hair, tendons, joints, cartilage, bones, and gut. | Gut health might be a stretch if the purity isn’t solid.|
|Ingredients||Decent. | Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised, Non-GMO. | It doesn’t have Hormone-Free. | It offers good amounts per serving.|
|Side Effects||Tricky. | It’s good that there are no additives. | Side effects can also happen due to potential impurities and admixtures.|
|Quality||No testing. | This is not the optimal option. | While it can work, there are more risks.|
|Success Rate||Above 88.8%. | Based on 4,001 reviews. | It is a very decent success rate.|
|Price||55.4 cents for every 10 grams of Bovine Collagen. | The pricing is very good (likely its biggest strength).|
|Ranking||Nop. | I would not put this on a list of the best collagen powders out there.|
|Recommendation||Consider it. | It seems to be an okay supplement if you’re on a very tight budget.|
|Better Alternatives?||The Live Conscious Collagen Peptides (full review with a summary) would be my preference over this (it’s also the same price category).|
Ranking | Where Does This Bovine Collagen Powder Rank (In 2022)?
Marketing | This Supplement Is Going For Skin, Hair, Nails & Repair
According to the manufacturer, Perfotek Collagen is not a low-quality Collagen. It is said to be Pasture-Raised and Grass-Fed while also being 100% natural Hydrolyzed Collagen. Per their words, it will deliver 18 amino acids, premium quality, and benefits to the entire body.
The product page of this supplement used to be an incredibly messy one. But they’ve fixed it up (somewhat) since that. It’s kind of like the Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate (review).
Namely, it’s well-structured and not very complicated.
For marketing, they likely have a supposedly discounted price (they list one price, then strike through it, and have a lower one). And it comes in bulk with discounts as well. There’s also free shipping.
We also get testimonials to persuade us into buying. And there is also a section (actually two of them) for the Perfotek Collagen reviews by customers. And a money-back guarantee. Which is kind of what we find with the Left Coast Performance Multi Collagen (review) as well.
For benefits and gains, they promise the typical ones. It’s about restoring and promoting youthful skin, hair, and nails. It’s also about repairing and improving joint, tendon, cartilage health. And there’s also a promise for better bone health and gut health.
As for the free-of claims, it’s Sugar-Free, Fat-Free, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, and Artificial-Free. That last one likely refers to having no Artificial ingredients like sweeteners, colors, and flavors. Which is good.
So, overall, I would say that the Collagen of Perfotek is looking decently good. But is it actually worth investing in?
Ingredients | To Review Core Contents, This Hydrolyzed Collagen Gets It
A lot of different Collagen supplements out there. First, there are, of course, those that provide just the protein like the Primal Kitchen Collagen Peptides (review). Second, there are those that provide one or two extra substances to that core of Collagen like the Youtheory Collagen Advanced Formula (review). Third, there are also the almost multivitamin-like ones like the Ideal Collagen (review).
So, what about the Perfotek Hydrolyzed Collagen? Which approach does this one subscribe to?
It’s the first one. Per scoop (one serving), the supplement offers 11 grams of Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Bovine Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides. Per container, there are 41 servings of pure unflavored Collagen.
Which is exactly the type of Collagen that we want (Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised). The only more ideal thing would be if they also assured that it is Hormone-Free. Still, the amounts per serving are great.
That’s definitely, the kind of abundance that can bring all of those benefits. Basically, quite likely capable of producing, to an extent, every single one of them [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
This, in theory, makes the Perfotek Collagen a very worthwhile one, at least from the sheer active ingredient perspective. But there is one slight problem that I do see with the supplement.
I’ve no idea what the quality is like.
I mean, the manufacturer doesn’t even bother to introduce us to their basic concepts of manufacturing. And that’s not great. I mean, as far as I can tell, they might as well not do even in-house testing. And so, we might be getting all kinds of unnecessary admixtures and impurities with the product.
I mean, I might be wrong because I’m speculating here. But the quality information they are, for sure, not providing at all. And if they care not enough to provide it, why should we ever assume that it’s great?
We definitely shouldn’t.
Side Effects | Perfotek Leaves Additives Out Of The Formula
Side effects are the product of additives. But for Collagen supplements, it’s almost iconic to not use any of those other added ingredients. And that’s especially true when it comes to all the powder options. Great examples of this include the Native Path Collagen (review) and the Bubs Naturals Collagen Protein (review).
So, what about the Perfotek Collagen?
It’s also a powder supplement. Being the unflavored product that it is, it also embraces the idea of “the fewer the additives, the better.”
And thus, from a pure ingredient standpoint, these Peptides are amazing.
It’s not that often that a supplement product can completely waive the “glue” ingredients if it chooses. For example, if we look at something like multivitamins, no well-rounded ones have I ever seen without additives. And so, it’s always pleasant whenever we encounter a supplement like this.
Personally, I really believe that the no-additives approach is the best one. Because it’s arguably the most flexible option since we can always just add the protein to our favorite drink, or coffee, or whatever that we would drink anyway. We can also easily cook with it and add it to our diet in a plethora of other novel ways.
Whatever fits the case and is your preference.
Reviews | As Far As Customer Feedback, It’s Almost In The Nineties
Looking at the information that the section of Perfotek Collagen reviews provides on the product page, it is really no surprise. It’s basically all super positive, plus the 5-star testimonials. That said, I wouldn’t, however, call it overwhelmingly positive like what we’ve seen with the Alaya Multi Collagen (review) or the Code Age Multi Collagen (review).
It’s definitely something a bit more down to Earth, a lot more balanced in terms of positive versus negative ratings. And hence, the review section might actually be something that they have not tampered with (like what the likely reality is for many others out there).
But either way, taking a look at all other sellers and retailers, still gives a lot more comprehensive, truth-oriented look. So, that’s what I did.
I came across a total of four thousand Perfotek Collagen reviews (or 4001, to be exact). Of these, 3552 were positive (three-star, four-star, five-star) and 449 were negative (one-star, two-star). Which gives us an 88.8% global success rate.
Which is likely higher than that given that people typically are far more inclined to report negative experiences over positive ones. But still, not everyone enjoyed it. So, what was the problem?
It seems that the most prominent problem is the fact that Collagen of Perfotek doesn’t mix well regardless of whether that’s a cold or a hot drink. Other than that, a rather frequent complaint felt to be the fact that it caused such side effects as stomach issues, pain, aches, allergies, and migraines.
Then, there were others who complained about what they attributed to poor quality control. Others resented the small, gradual price increase with the gradually lower serving size. And quite a few criticized the smell.
But the most concerning one had to do with what people referred to as a sudden drop in quality when supposedly nothing was changed by the manufacturer.
While that may feel like a lot of negatives, keep in mind that for every bad review there are nine other good ones. Neither of those complains about the bad smell, flavor, or side effects. Plus, I did not catch anyone grumbling about it mixing awfully. They’re basically just praising the thing.
I mean, many people report it helping with skin health tremendously. No more vitiligo patches, less wrinkled and crepe skin but far more glow. It has also profoundly delivered on people’s mobility and joint health. There’s also less pain.
And above all, many customers say along the lines of never did they actually realize how much they needed it before using it.
Pricing | It’s A Rather Decently Priced Product If $25 Is The Genuine Price
When it comes to pricing, we don’t typically see a lot of people resent it. Which, generally speaking, is probably a good sign but still. It doesn’t really say anything about the actual price, does it? It’s all subjective. Hence, let’s try to make it less so by doing some analysis.
So, the product page mentions $32.99 as being the standard price per container of Perfotek Collagen Peptides. But currently, it’s discounted at $25. Which I actually suspect to be the real price (even more so coming back after a year and seeing that same price).
The stricken through $32.99 might be just their way of creating scarcity and thus, propelling people like you and me to buy sooner than later because we never know when will that “discount” suddenly end.
So, it’s $25 per container of 41 servings, each serving being 11 grams. Hence, it’s $0.61 per serving. This means that every 10 grams of Bovine Collagen with this brand cost 55.4 cents.
Now, is that good? Well, yes, the price is good.
For example, with something like the Sports Research Collagen Peptides (review), we can get a container for $30. It holds 41 servings, hence, it’s $0.73 per serving or 66.5 cents for every 10 grams of Collagen (also 11 grams per serving).
Which when compared to Perfotek is decently more expensive (but it would actually be cheaper if $32.99 was Perfotek’s real price).
But even being the cheaper option, I believe that the supplement of this review can’t outdo Sports Research because the latter also brings third-party testing for purity and potency which the former doesn’t.
And so, personally, I wouldn’t favor the Perfotek supplement between the two even if it does cost 55.4 cents for every 10 grams of Collagen Peptides.
Whereas if we compare it to something like the Olly Collagen Peptides (review), it does have the upper hand. Olly costs $24.99 per container of 20 servings. Hence, it’s $1.25 per serving or per every 10 grams. But the problem with Olly is much deeper than just costing about twice as much.
The problem is also that Olly doesn’t promise Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Collagen Peptides as Perfotek does. This just means that with Olly that’s not the kind of quality Collagen that we expect or should prefer. Perfotek isn’t quite the most upper-echelon either but it’s much, much better in terms of sourcing.
Overall, comparing Perfotek Collagen to other Collagens as well, it feels decent enough overall.
Pros & Cons | Not Mentioning Anything About Quality Is A Huge Flaw
|✓ The supplement offers good amounts of Collagen per serving.||✘ The Collagen of Perfotek is not promised to be Hormone-Free.|
|✓ It is Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised, Non-GMO which in the context of the serving size, has a good potential to deliver on all of the promised gains.||✘ We have no idea what the quality is like. The brand might not even do in-house testing.|
|✓ The Perfotek Collagen has no additives.|
|✓ It’s very affordable.|
Overall | Perfotek Is Decent, I Just Wouldn’t Choose It Myself
Overall, given all that we have gone over, I think that Perfotek is respectable as an option. I think, generally speaking, it offers decent value, and the success rates kind of speak for themselves. People are typically getting worth out of it. Which is always a good sign.
Plus, the sourcing with its Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised approach is good. Also, I like the fact that it doesn’t use any additives. And then, pricing also seems to be good.
I mean, that is unless it costs $32.99. Then the price is absolutely rubbish and you should not ever get the product.
But if that is just a marketing gimmick, then it’s actually basically its best attribute and kind of uniqueness when compared to other products on the market.
But the biggest concern feels to me to be the quality aspect. Hence, with that in mind, (out of avoid it, consider it, shortlist it, buy it) I would reckon we should no more than just consider it.
And so, personally, I wouldn’t go for the Perfotek Collagen product. I just believe there are all-around better options out there that beats this one in literally every aspect of the game. And the best of them all I believe is the Live Conscious (LiveWell) Collagen Peptides (full in-depth review with a summary). It’s what I pick.
Above all, I hope this Perfotek Collagen review helped you find the information you were looking for. If you have any thoughts or questions, I’m just a comment away. And do feel free to leave your own personal reviews on the product as well.
18 thoughts on “Perfotek Collagen Review – Perfect Is Not Its Tech”
Although its pricing is affordable, as you said, it just isn’t something I would use either. There are better options. Yes, the price is higher, but at least you know what you are buying. I mean, how can they not say if it is hormone free? It seems to me like one of the most important aspects. I wouldn’t be wanting to take a product long-term if it wasn’t the best possible quality.
I haven’t used collagen yet, so I had to do some research on it. This was helpful. Like a ton of helpful. But now I’m actually interested in what the one you recommended offers. Wish me luck, haha.
Thank you for the awesome review and keep it thorough, like this one.
I appreciate the kind words. It means a lot to me. :)
And I completely understand you. While the cost can matter a lot, it certainly isn’t everything. I mean, being of proper quality also feels way more important to me. Thus, I feel that prioritizing quality over affordability is just the better way whenever that is possible in your particular situation.
Best of luck,
I’ve been looking around lately for a good collagen supplement. Everyone seems to be talking about this as a great thing to add to your anti-aging regimen. Some of my friends take collagen and say they have seen improvements to their skin and nails. Well, I could certainly use a little help with that too! So I definitely want to find a collagen product that can help me with that.
Although Perfotek sounds like it’s getting good ratings and it seems affordable, I think I would be hesitant to take this, as I always try to choose hormone-free products. Safety testing is also a very important factor to consider as well because health is everything. I think after reading your review, I might just have a look at your other suggestion. After all, some things in the long run are more important than just price alone.
Thanks for sharing your insights on this collagen product.
Yeah, I can certainly agree with that. In the long run, there are many things far more important than the price alone. Because, indeed, health is everything. And a little price difference certainly is not worth the health implications that one could later have due to a sub-optimal or an outright bad supplement.
To that end, I believe that we don’t need the cheapest, most affordable supplement that can get the job done. We need the highest, purest, third-party-tested quality supplement that is reasonable in its pricing. The rest is irrelevant.
Other than that, I also agree that Collagen has been a very capable and otherwise hot supplement category at the moment still. And I hope that you manage to find a Collagen just right for you. :)
I learned a great deal about Perfotek Collagen by reading your review. There were several things that surprised me. 89% satisfaction rate is very high. Yet, you concluded that this product was lacking.
You cited price and the lax ingredient documentation being the two reasons. What this tells me is that lot of people seem to be happy with this product despite these shortcomings.
It goes to show that the best product doesn’t always end up as the most popular or profitable. At least you have given people something to think about before buying this product.
I’m genuinely glad to hear that this was insightful. Indeed, I mean, you could even say that with every review I try to make people think before buying any product.
The satisfaction rates are always tricky. As you said yourself as well, the best products sometimes don’t get the best reviews while some truly miserable products (with some top-notch marketing) sometimes happen to be the ones that have the best feedback.
Hence, the way I see it, satisfaction rates should always be kind of a secondary statistic. It is primarily all about the actual ingredients that they use.
And then, I think it’s true for everything. You don’t have to buy the best product in any category of products to benefit from it. Decently good products make happy customers, too.
I just came across your supplement review site and am really pleased with the seriousness and commitment you put into your reviews. In addition to serving as examples of eloquence, they serve me well in matters that concern human health. I want to ask you the following.
There is a lot of confusion in the men’s hair loss market. What supplements would you recommend and what brands do you consider to be suitable for hair regrowth? I have seen the great popularity of Sport Research Biotin, but after reading several of your reviews about the bogus trends that appear in the Amazon “measurement” I prefer to ask you.
I have another health concern in my family. Can you suggest to yourself a brand of supplements and perhaps a procedure for taking those supplements to improve eyesight and eye health in general?
Lastly, I find myself selecting, out of all the pandemonium of products, a Grass Fed Whey Protein. I haven’t seen a top from you on HealthKnight.com about this macro. In any case, if it is possible for you, I would like to know your informed point of view on the AGN Roots protein, from Ireland.
(Sorry, English is not my native language.)
I am grateful for your work.
My apologies for literally taking ages to respond. In the sea of comments, I successfully managed to miss it. Again, really sorry for that. And if it’s still relevant, here are my thoughts.
To battle specifically hair regrowth after hair loss, I’m not sure that Collagen is the best approach. I mean, in theory, it can work but you’re right on the money to probably better prefer Biotin instead. Personally, I would probably combine the two and see if maybe there’s maybe a decent Saw Palmetto supplement to add to that mix.
And then, see how it goes. I mean, indeed, the tricky part is that there truly seems to exist confusion as to what works. I mean, for hair health in general, all of these three can work tremendously. But for hair regrowth after hair loss, that is a tricky question that I myself still have to properly research and look into.
For eye health, you could look into the list of the best vitamin A and Carotenoids that I have. To that end, I believe that a Carotenoid supplement, a Vitamin A supplement, and a proper multivitamin could work tremendously.
In addition to that, eye exercises I feel would also be a must. But for those, I can’t really recommend a decent program. Then, again, ones thought on youtube for free are likely to be more than enough.
I haven’t gotten the chance to look into Grass-Fed Whey Protein products yet. But I do intend to. Off of some initial research, I think that the Now Sports Organic Whey Protein should be among the best in terms of quality (third-party tested, plenty of certifications, organic).
Your English is splendid. :)
When it comes to products that I would consume, I prefer one that is natural. Perfotek Collagen does not make the claim that there are no additives but does lead you to believe that it is all-natural with the phrase “Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised”. I don’t know if that is a marketing ploy or if it is true in its entirety. I would want more assurances than what is provided and would prefer third-party testing for verification.
But if we would have all that, I would most probably really consider it as an option. I just like the price. I think that it’s incredibly affordable. And you illustrated that really well. Well done.
As for that $25 and $32 price, it seems to me that it’s also just a marketing thing. My point being, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if $25 was the regular price, and the $32 is just kind of a decoy to appear that you’re getting a better deal.
I wonder why is that necessary at all? Well, I get it, as you mentioned. But they would have appeared far more trustworthy to me if they weren’t trying to fool customers.
Yeah, I feel you. The pricing aspect doesn’t exactly foster trust. But it’s just marketing and there’s nothing more in there. I mean, they are just trying to sell. And while an approach like that may repel you specifically, it’s probably a numbers game since it will likely captivate far more people.
I think they do it because it creates this notion of scarcity and getting a better deal. It just really appeals to our natural cognitive biases. And hence, it’s very effective in persuading people when it comes to making a purchase.
Thank you for the kind words; it means a lot.
Manufacturers don’t always emphasize that in their marketing materials. But this one, for sure, doesn’t have any. I mean, as far as I can tell, the Perfotek Collagen is 100% natural. Namely, there are no additives, and it’s just Collagen all and throughout. I mean, it’s kind of like if we were to consume the tendons, skin, ligaments, etc. that contain plenty of extremely valuable amino acids. This is just a better, more appealing way of consuming that.
And then, Grass-Fed and Pasture-Raised are kind of a must, otherwise the Collagen is just nowhere near as helpful.
I really appreciate your opinion. I agree that third-party testing would be really useful. Especially given that the quality seems to haven’t been always top-shelf.
I do like to work out quite a bit, particularly weight lifting. I have always heard rumors about how collagen can actually help you slightly gain stronger muscles and alleviate joint pain which is something that I have started to struggle with. Knowing that Perfotek is pasture-raised, grass-fed, 100% natural, it is definitely a kind of product that I would like to look into. Do you happen to know whether or not can this really assist with my muscle joint issues?
Well, I would like to think that it should be the case. Collagen can be very helpful to joints. And it can help muscles, too. Still, I wouldn’t consider that its most prevalent benefit.
For joint health, it’s probably a proper Turmeric Curcumin supplement. Whereas for best results I would get one of each. I would, however, consider the Live Conscious option instead of Perfotek.
Read the full review of that, I think you’ll agree. :)
I don’t think I would choose the Perfoteck simply because of what might be considered to be their deceptive practices. Even if it’s not deceptive, for example, if the inconsistencies were simply mistakes, that still doesn’t bode well for customer confidence. I won’t ingest something into my body when these people can’t either 1) be consistent or 2) fact-check their work. Makes one wonder what else they were careless with. I think of all the ones mentioned here, I would choose the Sports Research Collagen Peptides for their price, purity, and potency. But I will look into your top recommendation as well. Thank you for this great review!
I absolutely feel you. And, indeed, it truly is a dark shadow over the customer confidence.
I appreciate you for sharing your thoughts. :)
Really amazing article, just the things I was looking for. I can see you have put in a lot of work to write this and I respect that. Everything is on point and well put together. Thank you for providing us with this content which was extremely informative and useful. I really do mean that. I wish you all the best in your business and future.
I’m saving this to my bookmarks, for sure.
Uuu-uu, that’s awesome to hear. I love that. I’m utmost grateful for that.
And, yeah, quite a lot of work went into this. I appreciate the recognition of that. :)
It’s kind of difficult to find collagen products that are unflavored. Most that I’ve tried here are all fruity flavored or comes in some weird tastes. I’m currently taking a collagen product from a direct selling company, it’s ok, I don’t see the tremendous effect just yet, but the cost is kind of adding up.
The economy looks kind of grim right now so doing a switch in brand may do my pocket some good. I’ll look into this brand as well as other less expensive options you’ve mentioned here. Thanks for sharing.
I absolutely feel you! Definitely do what feels most appropriate to you at this time. :)
And if you ever need anything or any thoughts you want to run by me, feel free to do so. I’ll be happy to hear from you.
And I can only agree. There truly are a whole lot of different flavored options. Some are with great additives, others – with terrible ones.
Cheers, and have a Great One!
