spotlight on: bio-peptides

Bio-peptides are found in many effective #agedefying skin care products. While there is no singular, miracle ingredient that will give you those instant, #youthful results we all wish for, peptides are an extremely important ingredient to look for in your #wrinkle fighting creams, serums, and under eye products.

Peptides are formed by chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of skin proteins. When peptides are created by a long chain of amino acids, they become proteins. Forming peptides from a short chain of amino acids allows them to penetrate the outer layer of our skin and send signals to our cells to remind them how to function properly.

The most infamous protein naturally found in the skin that diminishes naturally as we age, is #collagen. Making up 75% of our skin, collagen is responsible for maintaining that thick, supple, taut appearance. As such it is such a large molecule, collagen cannot not penetrate the skin when applied to the skin in the form of a cream or serum, making peptides a great alternative. Peptides are blessed with the ability to signal cells to make more collagen and repair damaged cell structures.

The benefits of Bio-Peptides in \tim-les age-positive products are important:

  • Peptides stimulate cell activity by interacting with molecules that can signal cells to produce more collagen (a type of structural protein), thereby playing a major role in building collagen, stimulating cell renewal and cell turnover, and diminishing wrinkles and rosacea.

  • Peptides act as a messenger between the top-most layer of the skin, or epidermis, and the dermis, which is the layer of connective tissue just below the epidermis. This epidermal-dermal communication in dialogue is one of the cases of aging.

  • Peptides increase synthesis of the dermal matrix molecules that are essential in preserving the skin’s youth. These increases are substantial; as much as 287% for glycosaminoglycans, 117% for Collagen I, and 327% for Collagen IV.

\tim-les\ age-positive formulas have a great deal to offer in the areas of stimulating natural biological processes that help reverse the aging process of the skin.
