Peptides are strings of amino acids, which are the building blocks that make up proteins in our body, including collagen in the skin. Without these proteins, we will see wrinkles, brittle nails and dry hair that’s prone to breakage. PEPTIDES are not packaged or sold as an individual product, instead, they are contained within other skin care products to enhance the capability of that product. They can be found in quality skin care moisturisers, serums, cleansers and even some high-end makeup.
Peptides serve as the building blocks for not only new collagen but also elastin fibres. These fibres are the building blocks of our skin and add to tissue firmness and elasticity.
Aside from being essential to the skin’s structure and function (important factors in firmness, texture and overall appearance), peptides are found in every human cell and play an important role in how the body functions, often acting as a biologic messenger. We need peptides at all times. If we are deficient in them, our body cannot function. Peptides have a myriad of uses in the body, from being the building blocks for enzymes, hormones and an energy source.
