Peptides occur naturally in every cell of every living thing. They communicate with our cells and signal them to act in a certain way. They are composed of multiple amino acids that are chemically linked together in a chain. Proteins like collagen, elastin, integrin and laminin are all comprised of peptides.
Human skin is composed mostly of collagen, a protein made up of long chains of amino acids. It provides a foundation and thickness for our skin. As we age, we have less collagen, our skin tends to be thinner and reveals more wrinkles. When collagen breaks down, short segments of amino acids are formed: tiny proteins and active molecules known as peptides. These peptides send a message to your skin that it has lost collagen and needs to generate more.
Peptides in skincare products can provide significant anti-aging benefits. They are small enough to penetrate the skin and when applied topically they signal the skin to repair itself. Your skin cells think it’s a collagen breakdown product and that is why your body is triggered to manufacture new collagen.
There are many peptides, each with a targeted action The most commonly used peptide in skincare is matrixyl (palmitoyl or oligopeptide pentapeptide), a neuropeptide that reduces fine lines very well. However, just as there isn’t one health food to eat or supplement to take to ensure good health, there isn’t just one ingredient that your skin needs to be healthy. Skin is the most complex organ of the body so it needs more than a single peptide or blend of peptides.
