PEPTIDES – Why they are a must in any anti-ageing regime

As people age, they lose collagen which results in sagging and wrinkled skin. In Australia’s sunny climate, too much sun exposure makes the damage happen more rapidly.
Since collagen is a protein composed of long chains of amino acids linked together by peptide bonds, peptides play an important role in replacing lost collagen. As collagen breaks down, the protein chains break up into smaller chains of peptides. The resulting peptide chains send signals to the body to produce more collagen.
Since peptides are small, they can penetrate the skin’s protective barriers. Applying peptides directly to the skin through good skin care products tricks the skin into thinking that it has lost collagen recently and needs to produce more. This makes it an extremely powerful ingredient to use to fight the ageing process.
