Peptides are the biggest revolution in skin care right now and the most promising ingredient with proven results to rid you of wrinkles. Put simply, peptides are amino acids that signal to your skin to create more collagen. As collagen is responsible for regenerating skin cells, improving elasticity and regulating moisture in our skin, it’s easy to see its importance in slowing down ageing in skin and why we could all do with more collagen.
The Importance of Collagen in Anti-Ageing
Collagen makes up over 70% of the protein found in your skin. It keeps skin plumped and resilient, youthful and wrinkle-free and it is also vital to skin’s healing process.
While we’re born with an abundance of collagen in our skin, the body’s production of collagen slows in our mid-to-late 20’s and continues to decreasedramatically after age 30. From there, the collagen levels in our skin begin to drop by 1-2% each year. It then becomes crucial to supplement our collagen intake to replenish the body’s natural supply and ultimately slow down the ageing process.
What Do Peptides Do In Skincare Products
Different types of peptides have different effects, from smoothing wrinkles or repairing barrier function to increasing firmness and hydration. Applied topically,peptides slow down skin ageing, studies say. On the face there is a visible reduction of fine lines and skin firmness is higher. The overall result is that skin looks plumper, thus making wrinkles and sags less apparent.
Peptides & Snowberry's World-First Delivery Systems
For peptides to reach the dermis they need to be packed in a delivery system. This is what makes Snowberry’s Serums unique! Snowberry’s world-first delivery systems called CuPEP™ and eProlex™ carry the skin-remodeling copper peptides into the dermis – the only place where they can boost collagen production, remodel, plump and smooth the skin.The serums are proven by independent, gold standard clinical trials. Why is that so special? It’s the highest standard used by dermatologists.
New Radiance Face Serum CuPEP™ Copper Tripeptide complex, hyaluronic acid and New Zealand Kanuka honey extract, hydrates and softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to enhance skin’s radiance. Designed to rejuvenate and help skin’s natural collagen production. Gold standard clinical trials show this serum is superior to Retinol products.
Snowberry’s premium Anti-Ageing Treatment – Youth Renewing Face Serum. A multi-functional super serum, with proprietary conditioning eProlex™ peptide complex, Harakeke seed oil, hyaluronic acid, Niacinamide (Vit B3), Vitamins C and E, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. Proven by gold standard clinical trial.
Snowberry's Potent Peptides:
- Copper Tripeptide-1
This peptide is found in both New Radiance Face Serum and Youth Renewing Face Serum.
- Acetyl hexapeptide-8 (Argireline)
Argireline helps to relax the muscles and works by safely intercepting messages from the brain and preventing muscle contractions. With weakened facial contractions, muscles are more relaxed and fewer wrinkles are formed. The effects are similar to botox but it’s safer, less invasive and skin is even smoother. Results have shown a reduction in wrinkle depth by 17% in 15 days with smoother looking skin. Impressive, right?
You can find Argireline in our Youth Renewing Face Serum and in the Smoothing Eye Serum.
- Caprooyl tetrapeptide-3 (Oligopeptide-1 and Caprioc acid)
This peptide is found in the Youth Renewing Face Serum.
