Peptides in the Skin

Peptides for Aging Skin

Skin aging involves a series of complex factors, which include:

  • A thinning of the epidermis and longer cell turnover times.
  • A buildup of reactive oxygen radicals as a byproduct of cellular metabolism.
  • A decrease in communication between growth factors and cells that lead to a decline in structural proteins.
  • Longer healing times for scrapes and bruises.


All these factors contribute to a loss of skin suppleness, firmness, smoothness, even the skin’s ability to defend against pollutants and UV light. Peptides may be the answer to these dermatological concerns and minimizing the signs of aging. Peptides are active chains of amino acids that make up proteins. Proteins are essential to every organism and participate in nearly every process within cells; they help regulate bodily functions, heal injury, reduce inflammation and enhance antioxidant benefits. Once we understand the extensive role proteins play within the body, and how peptides enhanced their performance, we can begin to grasp the value of peptides. With the evolution of technology, topically applied peptides are becoming even more effective at addressing skin issues. Because of the peptide’s smaller size and their ability to form nanostructures in products, the skin can digest peptides to strengthen, nourish and realign the skin, allowing for a stronger, healthier foundation.

Healthy Skin

Skin is a sophisticated and dynamic structure, being the largest organ of the body, it provides protection and many balancing functions for the entire body. Keeping skin healthy is critical to overall health, as well as, looking your best.
