People all over the globe are singing the praises of peptides. While there are many kinds of these natural wonders, there are three that are used most successfully in cosmeceutical skin care formulations:
– Signal peptides: Encourages the production of collagen while decreasing the breakdown of existing collagen.
– Neurotransmitter peptides: Limits muscle contractions. Please note: Peptides do NOT deliver the same results as Botox. If it did, it would be classified as a drug.
– Carrier peptides: Stabilizes and delivers trace elements necessary for wound healing and enzymatic processes.
The challenge with peptides is their size. Fortunately, peptides are easily modified to improve their ability to work in skin care formulations. Only when the peptide product is absorbed through the skin and to the targeted area will it have the most potential of generating results.
Because the signs of aging include fine lines and wrinkles due to a breakdown of collagen and elastin, peptides’ abilities seem to be a perfect match for those seeking anti-aging skin care formulations.
Combining peptides with regular professional treatments such as chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion can help preserve the natural beauty of your skin
