You’ve probably already used skincare products with peptides in them – because alongside Hyaluronic Acid, AHAs, Retinol, Vitamin C, Resveratrol, Ceramides and Ferulic Acid (have we forgotten anything?), they’re in constant beauty editorial rotation as a ‘must-have’ ingredient in any anti-aging skincare arsenal. And yes, we believe arsenals are needed.
Peptides are short chains of amino acids and tiny building blocks of protein that help stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and keratin, to improve your skin’s elasticity, strength and ‘bounce’. Skin that’s chronically peptide-deficient, can end up being dry, dehydrated and wrinkled. And when skin proteins break down, well, that’s where skin sagging starts.
There are short peptide chains (oligopeptides, dipeptides, tripeptides and tetrapeptides) and long peptide chains (polypeptides). All bestow different skin beautifying benefits, including:
Rejuvenating and maintaining healthy-looking skin
Smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Repairing barrier function to increase firmness, suppleness and hydration
Featuring Bionymph Peptides to improve skin elasticity and smoothness, this is like kryptonite for an aging face! Made in Switzerland (naturally), with wrinkle-fighting Liposomal Complexes, an intensive moisture-boosting Marine mix and Vita Genesis White – a revolutionary new ingredient that helps even pigmentation and brighten your complexion. Amazing.
With Green Microalgae Oligopeptides for visible wrinkle-smoothing, this uber-active Swiss-formulated eye infusion is a one-cream wonder. With Shea Butter for moisturizing, Caffeine and Coleus Forskohlii extract for puffiness-reduction and Raspberry Stem Cells to protect against any visible signs of premature aging. Brilliant. (The ingredient list goes on, we just don't want to overwhelm anybody.)
The ultimate skincare overachievers. Our fuss-free, results-rich Uber Youth Complexion Overhaul Multi-Action Ampoules are great things, in small packages. What’s inside? What isn’t? Each ampoule contains a pro-strength superactive dose of (wrinkle-relaxing) Retinoid (skin brightening) Vitamin C, rejuvenating Peptides, soothing Zinc, Copper and moisture-maxing Hyaluronic Acid. Applied to your face, neck and décolleté under your favourite moisturizer each evening, they’re like one-shot D.I.Y skin re-juicing juggernauts!
