The Power of Peptides
Peptides are an important topic in skin care these days due to their ability to restore tone and texture to aging skin. It’s no secret that over time, skin loses its resiliency. This loss of elasticity results in visible fine lines, wrinkles and an uneven surface. To make matters worse, many of us are constantly exposed to external contributors like pollution, stress and the sun which are just as detrimental to the health of our skin as time.

Aging and environmental factors cause our skin to produce less and less collagen. It’s collagen that actually supports the structure of our skin, making it firm and resilient. Peptides (fragments of proteins) have the unique ability to stimulate collagen production, allowing our skin to regain lost vitality and slow the onset of further signs of aging.

Peptides can help strengthen the skin, repair damage, smooth wrinkles, even out skin tone and restore clarity.

Finding the right stuff…

Face-firming Peptides (Tetra and Pentapeptides) boost new collagen production to recondition the outer most layer of the skin. Collagen is a protein that plays an important role when it comes to maintaining a firm, even complexion. Matrixyl, another name for Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3, is a predominant face-firming peptide... Matrixyl is found in:

Wrinkle-relaxing Peptides (Hexapeptides) calm the muscle contractions that can cause expression lines and deep furrows.

Skin Healing Peptides (Copper Peptides) activate the skin’s natural healing systems. The skin repairs itself by eliminating collagen and elastin that’s been damaged over time or by environmental stressors. These peptides may help treat the signs of aging. Copper attaches itself differently to the peptides in each of the following products, but functions similarly:
