Peptides: Keeping you in the know!Written by Virginia Alexander 29 June 2011
Peptides are signaling molecules comprised of building blocks called amino acids.
Peptides are a relatively small chain of amino acids.
Amino acids are small organic compounds. Amino acids are the chemicals that make up proteins.
Peptides “signal” the skin to produce more proteins such as collagen and elastin, they are responsible for the firmness and skin’s elasticity. Promising results have been achieved with peptides for anti aging skin care. And results are stellar for keeping young skin, well young!
Peptides can help to repair dry and damaged skin.
They improve lines and wrinkles and help skin retain its moisture.
Some Types of Peptides to benefit the skin:
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide: enhances the production of collagen and stimulates the growth of damaged tissue in the skin.
Acetyl Hexapeptide: provides anti-wrinkle results by keeping skin relaxed and smooth, Helps to reduce the appearance of expression lines
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7: smoothing and regenerating peptide helps increase skin’s elasticity.
Recap: Peptides are amino acids that help build proteins, which helps rebuild and repair the skin.
We all have heard the benefits of eating protein; it helps build the muscle tissue in our bodies. Peptides in our skin care products can help to do the same.
