Peptides are an important part of an effective anti-aging skincare routine. They help reverse the visible signs of aging, including wrinkles and fine lines by augmenting the production of collagen in the skin.
Cosmeceutical grade peptides in skincare
Our skin is primarily made up of a protein called collagen, which itself is made up of very long chains of molecules called amino acids. When collagen breaks down, shorter chains of amino acids results, these shorter chains of amino acids are known as peptides.
How do cosmeceutical level peptides work?
The presence of peptides in the skin is an alert to the body that collagen has broken down and needs to be restored. When peptides are applied to the skin, the body believes these peptides are from broken down collagen and begin to produce its replacement. More collagen in the skin makes the skin more youthful.
What are cosmeceutical grade ceramides?
Simply put, ceramides are fats that are found naturally in the top layers of the skin. They are the adhesive that holds our skin together and creates a barrier that protects the skin from moisture loss and damage.
Benefits of ceramides
Aging and skin damage can reduce the skin’s naturally occurring ceramides and cause the skin to become vulnerable. As the ceramide levels in the skin are reduced, skin becomes rough, irritated, dehydrated and dry. Skincare products containing ceramides help to replenish the skin’s ceramide barrier, increasing moisture and reversing the visible signs of aging and damage.
