Type: Group of Ingredients

Definition: Peptides are large molecules that are the building blocks of proteins. In fact, short bonds or links between the amino acids are known as peptides! Without peptides, skin doesn't remain intact, as they support collagen and elastin - responsible for skin firmness and elasticity. In skincare, synthetic peptides communicate and direct the skin cells to behave in a certain way, they have great managerial skills!

Let's Have a Look

Benefits

  • Reinforce proteins naturally occuring in the skin
  • Rejuvenate and maintain the skin’s proteins
  • Smooth out wrinkles and fine lines
  • Strengthen the barrier function of the skin

Danger

  • They can be vulnerable to degradation from light and air
  • There are so many different types of peptides, some may be too much for sensitive skin so make sure to read labels

Hint

Peptides need friends, they can’t act on their own, so make sure to get a product that contains a formulation that makes sense for your skin.

Contraindications

Sensitive skin depending on the product formulation.
