What are peptides?
Peptides are organic substances made up of amino acids that regulate various biochemical processes in cells, tissues and organs. Depending on the amino acid content, we differentiate between polypeptides, oligopeptides and proteins, which are the building blocks of the skin. The best-known peptide proteins include collagen, keratin and elastin.
Peptides are normally found in our body, but as soon as the quantity decreases, our skin sags and loses elasticity and wrinkles appear. That’s why it’s a good idea to supplement peptides in skincare products along with other active ingredients such as antioxidants and vitamins to promote fresh and youthful-looking skin.
