The Benefits of Peptides

Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins. They play a vital role in many biological processes in the body and have been shown to offer a wide range of benefits when consumed as a supplement

As peptides make up the building blocks of essential skin proteins like collagen, elastin and keratin, they are most often used in skincare to improve skin texture, strength, resilience, and luminosity.

When applied topically, peptides trigger skin cells to perform these specific functions (such as rebuilding collagen and elastin). 

Examples of how topical peptides can benefit the skin include:

  • Decrease inflammation

  • Slow down the aging process

  • Improve skin elasticity

  • Lift and tighten the skin

  • Fight surface bacteria that causes acne

  • Optimize cell turnover time

Peptides work to trigger communication between skin cells, which can positively restructure the DNA and “turn back the clock”, so to speak, on common concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, melasma, acne scars, and so much more.
