Peptides are popular and science-backed ingredients, praised as a “Botox-like” substance by dermatologists and skincare enthusiasts. They are the building blocks of proteins, which are vital to every single function in all of your organs, not just the skin. The peptide specifically selected for our formulations is Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9.
Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9, famous for “dermal remodeling,” is one of the most beneficial peptides for your complexion. Get ready for its revolutionary and impactful effects! Its primary goal is to create lasting and noticeable support to your skin’s tautness and structure. Maximizing your body’s ability to create Lumican, a matrix protein in charge of regulating elasticity, this peptide increases your skin’s youthfulness. It also boosts collagen production at unbelievable rates. Most notably, this peptide does not just keep your skin from losing elasticity, it also works to reverse any aging or sagging. Keep your cheekbones firm, plump, and wrinkle-free. Its effectiveness stems from the fact that peptides are the fundamental building blocks to our body; we are born with it! So, it creates the most organic, natural, renewed look possible. Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9, a construction worker, bolsters the structural integrity of all layers of the skin. As you age and your skin is weathered by your life experiences, the connective tissue in your dermis that facilitates healing from injury and its general health slowly declines. This peptide brings it back to life, giving your natural skin barrier a gym session and bringing it to its full potential.
A Peptide Crash Course
With all of these technical terms, peptides and their benefits for skin may seem intimidating. Simply put, peptides are the smaller components that proteins are made of. In normal life, we hear protein as part of our nutrition; however, proteins in the body are essential “workers” that complete all sorts of jobs in our cells and all over our body to keep us alive. In the skin, peptides trigger the functions that keep our cells healthy and, therefore, our complexion, beautiful!
