Peptides in Skincare

None of us enjoy to see our skin sagging, so let me share some latest research and why I choose to use natural ingredients at times along with organic.

As I continue to formulate products my greatest desire is to stay mainly with organic ingredients but sometimes bringing a natural component into the formulation is to a great advantage.

Let’s start with the science knowledge on peptides!!

Peptides are fragments of proteins. On their own, peptides are made up of amino acids. When amino acids are combined in certain formations they create specific peptides (and there are hundreds of peptides), and when peptides are formed in a certain way, they make specific proteins.

Proteins are the fundamental building blocks of skin. Without peptides, skin doesn’t remain intact and the result is loss of firmness, appearance of wrinkles, texture changes, and skin that doesn’t bounce back as it once did.

As our skin loosens, the connection between the dermal and epidermal layers of our skin starts to come apart.

This “dermo-epidermal junction” is critical for maintaining youthful skin.

I call it the messenger between your skin’s layers. It maintains skin cohesion.  It also will carry essential nutrients up to the epidermis for healthy skin.

As the dermo-epidermal junction breaks down, your skin begins to lose elasticity and firmness. You start to see fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. Scientists have discovered a compound that can rebuild this connection between the skin layers.

Research shows peptides stimulate the formation of the vital building blocks of the dermo-epidermal junction. Some would say they restore the connection between the dermal and epidermal layers of skin. That improves skin tightness and elasticity. As we mature and for night skin repair I see peptides as a must.

We really do love feedback as it helps us to continue to grow and evolve and we hope that you will want to contribute to our journey and make us part of your lifestyle, so please do share your thoughts and ideas with us along the way.
