Copper peptides? What are they and why do we want them in our skincare? First of all, what the heck is a peptide? In simple terms, peptides are the building blocks that make up proteins. They work to rebuild and repair damaged cells as well as signalling skin to produce collagen [slowing the aging process- thumbs up]. They essentially are like smart cars programmed to a specific address (the damaged cell) containing advanced technology to repair which is what makes these so unique. The article below gives a very detailed and accurate description of what copper peptides are and why they are good for your skin. In addition, they offer some product suggestions that contain copper peptides; however, we are partial to our super Serum 11 which contains a stable, encapsulated form of these copper peptides. Not only does it promote gene expression of collagen and elastin but, over time and repeated use, results have shown a 33% wrinkle reduction and 19% elasticity increase. Click here to get yours!
