Peptides

Why it's Dermoi

The use of peptides in cosmeceuticals formulations is a sophisticated way to alter skin cell activity.

Description

Peptides are fragments of proteins. There are composed of a sequence of amino acids. Peptides have a wide range of uses in skincare as they can regulate a range of cellular processes.

Peptides can modulate the function of collagen, elastin, skin cell turnover, and pigmentation production (melanogenesis).

Peptides act as:

  • Carriers: they help increase stability and/or penetration of active ingredients in formulations.
  • Signalling: they give signals to cells (usually to regenerate)
  • Neurotransmission: they act in a comparable way to Botox to prevent wrinkles

They need to be incorporated into sophisticated cosmeceutical formulations to enhance their penetration into the skin and preserve their stability overtime.
