Peptides are the building blocks of proteins. Built from amino acids, peptides provide many of the structures on the body--including hair, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. They form the hemoglobin in the blood, carrying oxygen throughout the body to muscles and organs. Peptides are also the main building blocks for enzymes that catalyze chemical reactions for cell functions, and they provide the signals on the outer surface of cells so your body can communicate systemically. Peptides have many uses, and most of them are necessary for life.
While there are a variety of different peptide complexes, a couple of ways they work for your skin are:
Produce Collagen - Collagen, made up of long strands of amino acids, is really the main building block of skin, giving the skin its smooth, and youthful appearance.
Strengthen Capillaries & Increase Microcirculation — Peptides
themselves are constructed from various combinations of the 22 unique amino
acids (AAs) found in the body. Depending on the number of amino acids involved, these peptide structures go by different names: oligopeptides (2-20 AAs), peptides (fewer than 50 AAs), and proteins (50 or more AAs). When it comes to caring for delicate skin, peptides help by protecting the integrity of elastin & collagen bundles (two essential elements of the skin), and minimizing the impact of free radical damage, these powerful peptides work to improve skin firmness and elasticity.
Results include: improved skin compactness, reduced wrinkles, increased skin tonicity and increased skin firmness.
