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 to minimize the look of telltale signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines.
Brightening & firming
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 found in our Firming Eye Cream, Sea Minerals Mist and Blemish Balm. Think of Mineral peptides as fermented foods for your skin. Caprooyl Tetrapeptide-3 is a biomimetic tetrapeptide that smooths the look of fine lines and wrinkles. You can find it in our new, age-defying Ocean Eyes serum. It also features clinically-tested quinoa that acts as a peptide to reduce undereye puffiness.
How to Add Peptides into Your Routine
The simplest way is to choose skincare rich in these ingredient-powerhouses. Opt for products that are not easily washed off, such as moisturizers, serums and masks. For maximum results, combine peptides with other hero ingredients, such as Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C.
