Let us know if you have further questions about our peptides

Yes, peptides have several characteristics that make them safe for use in skin care.
  • They have high potency at low dosages. 
  • They penetrate the stratum corneum, the outer layer of the skin, to support the cells responsible for creating a healthy microbiome which minimizes irritation. 
  • Antimicrobial peptides are a promising alternative to traditional antibiotics because of their wide spectrum of activity, even on resistant organisms. 
  • Peptides are less immunogenic than other biologic therapeutics.

TPI rigorously test all our peptides and optimize their modification to create a low toxicity, high efficiency peptide. Our tests are performed on epidermal skin-cell cultures and common skin microbes to give dermatologically pertinent results.

TPI peptides are in a wide range of skincare products including: facial cleansers, toners, eyelash growth serums, lotions, masks, creams, sunscreens, serums, and gels. They can be found in  both professional and take home products which treat acneic skin, aging concerns, pigmentation and sensitive skin.

Dr. Donald Owen is one of the world’s foremost researchers in the field of biopeptides. His pioneering work originated in the development of the first artificial blood for use during organ transplant operations, particularly the heart. The peptides used in this process gave such outstanding results on the organ being transplanted that Dr. Owen explored other applications for their use. It led him to become particularly interested in their role in the aging process, and after ten years of research in dermal aging, he has developed significant advances in dermal peptide mimetics.

Added to the innovation of growth peptides, bioemulsion technology is an advanced delivery system which enables skincare bioactives to reach deep skin levels without the need for an injection. Dr. Owen claims that the particle size of most commercially available skincare products is too large to allow meaningful skin penetration. To maximize results, bioemulsion technology enables products to deliver particles of less than 200 nanometers.
