You may have heard the buzz around peptides as an anti-aging must-have, but have you ever wondered what a Peptide is and what it does exactly? Here, we break down how Peptides work, what they actually do for our skin and body, and the best Peptide-infused skincare to look out for.
What Are Peptides?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are the natural building blocks of protein in the skin, hair and nails. Peptides work hard together to minimize the look of telltale signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines.

When it comes to skincare, there are hundreds of Peptides to choose from. Mineral Peptides are formed when yeast called Saccharomyces is fermented with a trace mineral, such as Copper, Zinc or Manganese. The result is a Mineral Peptide, often labeled as Saccharomyces/Copper Ferment, Saccharomyces/Manganese Ferment or Saccharomyces/Zinc Ferment. Think of Mineral Peptides as fermented foods for your skin!
