What are peptides?

 

Collagen is a protein in the skin that maintains its thickness and suppleness.  As you age, your skin has less collagen, which can cause the skin to thin out and develop wrinkles (crepiness).  As collagen breaks down, the protein breaks up into the smaller chains of peptides, which then sends a signal to the cells – and your body – to produce more collagen.

 

By applying the peptides to your skin, you can send the message to targeted areas yourself!

Aging Skin and Collagen Production

Another important thing to note is that collagen production relies on adequate copper in your body and skin[1]. Copper peptides promote collagen and elastin production, and acts as an antioxidant. [2] It’s been shown in studies to help remove damaged collagen and elastin from the skin, because they activate the skin’s system that is responsible for those functions.

 

Our anti-aging night treatment, Recapture 360 Night, works with your body’s natural internal Bio-Clock or “circadian rhythm” to help the skin’s natural night time repair process. Based on the science of epigenetics, a unique tetrapeptide helps activate the skin’s rejuvenation process or Bio-Clock to optimize repair of UV and IR sun damage and multiple effects of aging. Bio-Copper Complex helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin’s firmness, smoothness & elasticity.
