Peptides are proteins found naturally in skin that communicate with cells to trigger collagen production. This minimizes wrinkles and plumps skin, promoting healthy, youthful skin.
So here’s the science. Collagen is a protein that’s abundant in our skin when we’re under 30 (and decidedly less abundant as we age - ugh). Proteins - taking it back to high school bio - are long chains of amino acids. Peptides are small links in those chains. In other words, peptides are the smallest links that make up collagen in the skin, and they can do quite a lot. Specifically, they can:
To be clear, this isn’t a one-size-fits-all thing. There are different peptides that have different functions. Ours, in particular, is Matrixyl 30000 - a super-peptide that’s made by combining two peptides: palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 and palmitoyl oligopeptide.
It specializes in tackling wrinkles, increasing elasticity, and replenishing dwindling collagen levels - and it works. One study even found that it candouble the amount of collagenproduced by our cells - which is no easy feat.
The great thing about peptides is that they work with your skin to boost the production of your natural anti-aging compounds. In this way, they can help repair your skin without causing any reactions, breakouts, or dryness.
The benefits of Matrixyl 3000 on the skin include:
