What are peptides?
- Peptides are short chains of amino acids that act as building blocks of proteins such as collagen, elastin and keratin.
- When applied topically to the skin, peptides act as little messengers, triggering skin cells to perform specific functions such as building collagen and elastin, encouraging skin to look and act younger.
- Extensive scientific research has proven that peptides can support your skin on multiple levels, for example firming, soothing and hydrating the skin.
- In addition to collagen, peptides also make up elastin fibers, also a type of protein. These fibers make skin look firmer and tauter.
