superstar ingredient - peptides

relativskin products are created through a beautiful blend of ingredients gifted by both nature and technology. While we’re fortunate enough to have access to several classes of ingredients that make a measurable difference, peptides may be the most promising technological advance in skin care to date. That’s why we’ve included three unique peptides, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Pentapeptide-18, and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, in our Fortify peptide serum.

Peptides are active molecules made of short-chain amino acids that naturally occur in our skin. When certain amino acids are combined, they create peptides. When peptides connect, they form proteins, including collagen and elastin, each of which are necessary for your skin’s resilience and elasticity. Whether you’re younger or older, peptides are a wise addition to your skin care regime. Peptides can ignite collagen and elastin production in mature skin.

There are hundreds of variations and types of peptides. Some have demonstrated a remarkable skin-soothing effect, while others have improved loss of firmness and the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines.

Here’s what the peptides in relativskin's Fortify peptide serum can do for your skin:

  •       Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, also known as Argireline and Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, like all peptides, has the potential to stimulate collagen production and draw moisture into the skin. Most remarkably, it’s considered a neurotransmitter-inhibiting peptide, meaning it may have the ability to prevent dynamic wrinkle formation.
  •     Pentapeptide-18 reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead and around the eyes. It works synergistically with Acetyl Hexapeptide-8.
  •       Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 penetrates the epidermis and enters deep into the dermis, where it stimulates collagen production and healthy tissue growth. It not only speeds up collagen synthesis in the skin, but early studies suggest that this peptide is able to communicate with skin cells and help them flush toxins.
