The Magic of Peptides in Skincare

Thanks to science, we can now experience the transformative and deep healing powers of Peptides! What are Peptides? Peptides are a type of protein that works with our DNA, and is created when 2 or more amino acids link together to form a "chain" of proteins. Peptides play an important role when it comes to maintining the health and appearance of our skin. There's a variety of Peptides that perform certain functions.

"Signal" Peptides have the ability to communicate with our DNA and direct it to perform certain functions, Peptides can direct our cells to produce more collagen and elastin, and stimulate the natural production of EGF resulting in a more youthful and firm appearance over time.

"Enzyme-inhibiting" Peptides work with our DNA to prevent certain actions, such as degrading collagen/tissue and reducing future hyperpigmentation from forming.

"Carrier Peptides" can take or "carry" certain ingredients deeper into the skin to help with stimulating tissue repair. Carrier Peptides are great for wound healing and cell regeneration.

“Neuropeptides” give a Botox-like effect by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters that enable facial muscles to form wrinkles. Pretty amazing!

With an improved skin barrier after incorporating peptides into your routine, your skin is less prone to sensitivities and better protected against harmful pollutants, and breakouts are less likely to occur.

Applying high-quality skincare products that contain Peptides regularly will have amazing results for every skin type. Peptides can help "turn back the clock" to slow the aging process. A wonderful anti aging and prevention tool.
