Ingredient 101: Peptides

Ingredient 101: Peptides


Peptides are an amazing skincare ingredient and work very similarly to Collagen. They are made up of chains of amino acids, which are already present in our body. Peptide molecules are also much smaller than protein molecules (ie collagen) and can sink into the skin and tell your cells what is needed. There are many different types of peptides that help different skin concerns but they are mainly known for providing the skin with a plump and healthy complexion. 

What type of skin benefits the most from Peptides?

All skin types can benefit from this ingredient. It's especially great for dry or aging skin types as it can be a tremendous ingredient to incorporate for complexions with fine lines, wrinkles,  and dullness. Peptides are the building blocks that make up proteins and therefore can help your skin stay firm and plump.

What benefits does it have on the skin?

Peptides improve the skin by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles while also reducing inflammation. This ingredient targets almost every skin concern and is great to incorporate into products since it is so universal.
