Most of the people are more conscious of what they eat. Some wish to lose weight, some others have allergic reactions or have undesirable side effects to some products. Some wish to build more muscle mass while others only want to protect their bones and joints or want wrinkles free softer skin.
Peptides are a very powerful for skin care weapon, play a variety of functions, the principal of all is to transmit information between cells. That is, communicate to the dermis to the epidermis to get a much faster regeneration in case it needs help or repair. This function is altered by age, so the skin loses the ability to repair itself. That is when the artificial peptides appear in beauty treatments to cover the shortfall. Along with retinol, antioxidants and AHAs are an essential element in the anti-ageing treatments.
Biopeptides and biomimetic peptides
Peptides are bound amino acid sequences similar to a pearl necklace. The amino acid sequence and spatial orientation of the chains determine the function thereof, acting at different levels of the skin.
- Skin aging: Stimulation of protein synthesis, which forms the extracellular matrix (collagen, elastin, fibronectin and laminin). Enhance and accelerate skin healing. Regenerate and restructure the epidermis.
- Sunscreen: Stimulate the activity of melanocytes and melanin production, attenuate inflammatory skin reactions, regulate cytokines and pro-irritating protect DNA against UVA and UVB radiation.
- Bleaching agents: Suppress the activity of melanocyte stimulating hormone and melanin synthesis.
- Reaffirmance: Inhibit the degradation of collagen and elastin damage caused by the external environment (UV, pollution, etc.) or aging itself.
The biomimetic peptides are structurally identical to those present in the skin and act on the physiological mechanisms with high specificity, at very low concentrations and with excellent purity-security relationship. Also, have excellent skin penetration and with defined biological actions.
They act directly in the skin tissue through receptors, behaving as antagonists or agonists of cellular mechanisms, modulating, controlling and regulating their biochemical functions. So they are used in many anti – aging creams to treat and combat the first wrinkles, stimulate all regenerative processes, filling each of the wrinkles from within.
Why to use in cosmetics?
According to the structure with which they are equipped they have the biopeptides to combat premature aging, send different messages to cells generally to stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin. With everyday use, this will be reflected on the surface of the dermis.
Is that precisely because this intelligent selective aspect that characterizes the deal biopeptides perfectly to stimulate all regenerative processes, filling each of the wrinkles from within.
