Peptides produce biological responses beneficial to the skin. Peptides are composed of amino acids, the natural building blocks of the human body. Each amino acid placement is unique to its specific message. These highly specific, active biological messengers can signal cells for a number of different results and are created naturally throughout the body. A specific peptide can signal the production of hormones, which can have strong effects on the body, or other specific sequences can signal for pinpoint repair. When applied to the skin for example, peptides can relay messages to living skin cells lying beneath the epidermis for specific responses and repair, metabolism, and even exfoliation.
Peptides have been proven to increase collagen production, re – establish youthful metabolism and assist in the repair of unhealthy tissue. Reaching beyond the surface and working with the totality of the natural skin cycle is essential for corrective reconstruction. Peptides must be the correct pH as to not disrupt the acid mantle of the skin. Science demonstrates that chirally correct molecules are biologically active and beneficial to the body. Selective chirality corrected (purified) molecules produce only the beneficial, positive effects. This is why it is important to use only biologically active amino acids in forming cellular peptide messengers.
Most every company must purchase their peptides from raw material suppliers, which is very costly. As an example: American Peptide Corporation’s Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor peptide costs $70 per mg. By using the weight of one drop of water (which is 44.78mg) as a reference, ONE DROP of Epidermal Growth Factor peptide costs $3,134.60! ONE drop! So, by using this rationale, is your cosmeceutical source truly providing you with the proper amount of peptides in their products to actively accomplish the proper action? Consider this, would you rather use a peptide serum that is 100% biologically active, or a product that has a few drops of a peptide added to a base cream or inactive liquid?
Skinplicity carries a complete line of Peptide products which are vertically integrated and synthesizes its own unique peptide messengers in their FDA inspected laboratory. They research, evaluate, and produce all of the peptides used in their products. Each peptide is uniquely developed to determine its proper action, so that the peptide sequence (message) remains the same as what the body produces, and the amino acids are indistinguishable from those the body obtains naturally from food sources. Plant obtained amino acids are not only different than that of the body, but the messages (peptides) that they make up are also different. Plant amino acids taken from plants carries a message…for plants. Meaning that plant peptides work great inside of a plant, but are next to useless to the body. But, if we take amino acids from plants, purify them, and reassemble (synthesize them) into a usable peptide, then only those amino acids which are natural to the body are selected and then that particular peptide can be useful.
Additionally, these individual peptide serums offer the ability to customize a personalized treatment protocol to the individual needs. For example, there are peptides (serums) to repair damaged and inflamed tissue, lift, tone, aid in collagenesis, help with hyper-pigmentation, ease bacterial proliferation and bacterial signaling in acneic skin, and generate healthy cellular turnover. Each singular peptide serum is kept to just the amino acids which make up the active peptide. No fillers, no parabens. They are water soluble, lightweight, and very easy to layer if desired. We customize select peptide(s) that will most benefit your skin condition(s). In approximately 2 minutes the serums are absorbed and begin their actions. They work wonderfully within your other product lines, or as stand-alone corrective protocols and treatments; and can be massaged in, or enhanced with microcurrent, ultrasound, LED, etc. You will love the visible results and improvements, and then maintain at home, for continued benefits.
