The Power of Peptides: Now at Dermess in Nashville!


Peptides: Your Skin’s Own Moisturizing Factor

Peptides were discovered when cosmetic chemists were searching for the skin’s own natural moisturizing factor. For years, they had used proteins in formulating hair care products, and they knew that proteins had to play a role in skin hydration. What they found is that skin’s natural moisturizing factor is comprised of amino acids and peptides – the building blocks of proteins.

How Peptides Work

Peptides are cell messengers, sending specific signals for specific functions. They can increase collagen production, activate lash follicles and weaken repetitive muscle contractions. But one peptide can’t do it all. It takes a variety of different peptides to signal these different functions. And a higher percentage of peptides means an amplified signal for cell growth.

Skin Care and Peptides

While a number of skin care lines have begun including peptides, only one line, HydroPeptide®, includes 21 different peptides at clinical levels. Every HydroPeptide product includes peptides, as well as other key anti-aging ingredients like stem cells, antioxidants, growth factors and colostrums. These products can really change your skin by signaling and renewing cell growth.
