What are Peptide Serums?
Since times of the Ancient Egyptians, skin care routines have involved applying nourishing oils and lotions in various forms to the skin and, over time, more sophisticated ingredients have been added to these ancient rituals.
In the ongoing quest to improve the effectiveness of skincare, research studies have moved on to examining how cells function and these have identified specific newer compounds, called peptides. These are short chains of amino acids that form the building blocks of skin proteins. Peptides play a vital role in keeping the main structural molecules of the skin, namely collagen, fibronectin and elastin, healthy and in sufficient quantity, to ensure skin is firm, supple and young-looking.
The specific peptide used in Nourish Peptide Serums is Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5. This peptide penetrates the epidermis and enters the dermis, where it stimulates and accelerates the natural process of healthy collagen production and tissue growth. Clinical trials have shown that this peptide is capable of reducing and changing the type of wrinkles that can add years on your appearance.
In addition to speeding up collagen production, this tripeptide can prevent toxins that have already penetrated the dermis from doing harm to the skin cells. This is done by helping cells to flush out toxins or by rendering them inert.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is made from sustainable palm oil and amino acids and is suitable for use by vegetarians and vegans – reassuring for those wishing to avoid products using collagen from animal sources. Specific activity of this peptide includes:
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles after just 28 days of use
- Providing long term reduction in fine lines and wrinkles in mature skin
- Giving skin a more youthful, rested look
- Protecting the skin from environmental stressors.
Nourish serums also feature Hyaluronic acid, another natural component of skin which, sadly, decreases as skin ages. The benefit of hyaluronic acid is its amazing ability to hold water – up to 2000 times its own weight, making it a highly effective skin hydrator. In addition to having an immediate plumping effect on skin which reduces fine lines, hyaluronic acid helps the skin to retain water longer, thereby avoiding the early stages of dry skin that leads to premature ageing.
