What is a peptide?
A peptide is a molecule consisting of two or more amino acids linked together by peptide bonds. Often the naming of the peptide can indicate the number of amino acids bonded together; Dipeptide: consists of two amino acids, Tripeptide: has three amino acids, Tetrapeptide: has four amino acids and so on. Peptides can be classified either by their function or by their source. Used in many different areas, including in medicine. In skincare the function of a peptide within a formulation is primarily to help combat the anti-ageing processes. Reversing the effects our skin endures.
Anti-ageing and the use of Peptides
Peptides are fragments of proteins. On their own, peptides are made-up of what’s known as amino acids. One of our skin’s most important proteins is collagen, which gives our skin its thickness. Collagen breaks down in the skin due to age, environmental factors, UV rays and stress, causing wrinkles to form.
The advancements of technology combined with extensive research and development over the years, now means that skincare products often include powerful and highly-effective peptides within their formulas. These short chains ‘peptides’ are able to penetrate the top layer of the skin, where they then go to work delivering their anti-aging benefits. Helping, for instance, to stimulate collagen production, and as a result, deminish fine lines and wrinkles appearing on the skins surface in the efforts to fight anti-ageing.
