Now research at the Weizmann Institute of Science reveals that already back in the stone age, humans were putting this organic compound to use, albeit not in rejuvenating cosmetics. Dr. Arie Nissenbaum discovered an 8,000-year-old cache of collagen used as glue by mysterious Neolithic cavemen who lived in the area of the Dead Sea.
