You have likely heard of peptides, but why are they such an important ingredient within your skin care products?
What Is A Peptide?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that tact as building blocks for proteins in your skin. Proteins are the foundation of your skin, its your skins supporting structure. The skin proteins are collagen, elastin and keratin. These essential proteins help your skin maintain its youthful-looking texture, strength and resilience.
Why Are Peptides In Skin Care?
Peptides are smaller versions of proteins, enabling them to be easily delivered to the skin and body than larger proteins. Peptides act like messengers, they trigger the skin to increase the benefits of more collagen and elastin. This is why DermaQuest developed a peptide range of products, giving you a more youthful looking skin.
