Peptides, Your Skin’s Best Friend No Matter Your Age

Why Are Peptides So Great in Skincare?

The usefulness and effectiveness of various peptides has everything to do with the way it essentially ‘tricks’ our skin into producing more collagen. Collagen, for those who aren’t familiar, is the protein that makes up our connective tissues. There are over twenty types of collagen, however, as we age our body will stop producing the collagen that is associated with the appearance of youthfulness.


"When used in cosmetic skin products, peptides fall into three main categories: signal peptides, carrier peptides, and those that inhibit nerve signals. By acting as messengers, signal peptides can trigger collagen synthesis, which then increases skin firmness." [1]

Not All Peptides Have the Same Function

Not all peptides are created equal nor do they all have the same mechanism. “Different types of peptides have different effects, from smoothing wrinkles or repairing barrier function to increasing firmness and hydration. Several peptides can be combined in one product, and most are found in anti-aging products for skin that has started to demonstrate a decrease in the production of those essential proteins.” [2]

Not All Peptides Are Created Equal

The latest generation of peptides are on the cutting edge of dermatology science’s understanding in regards to the exact mechanism of how they are able to help with aging. However, the most recent studies show that these peptides are indeed effective in reducing the depth, density and and volume of wrinkles.
