Amino Acids are key nutrients for the skin as they are the building blocks of proteins. Proteins are involved in keeping the skin strong, firm, and flexible, but also in many cellular processes such as cell signalling and enzymatic function.
Amino Acids ensure the skin has the necessary nutrients to assemble proteins and maintain its structure.
Amino Acids are vital nutrients for cells. This is because amino acids are the molecular building blocks for proteins and peptides. Amino Acids are assembled into proteins through a cellular process called translation.
Amino Acids are essential for a variety of cellular processes such as enzyme function, collagen synthesis, cell-to cell signalling, and skin cell renewal. They also play in integral role in water transport within the skin (aquaporins) and can also act as antioxidants.
Common Amino Acids found in skincare are Cysteine, Lysine, Alanine, Methionine, Glycine, Proline, Arginine, and Histidine.
