Anti-Aging Peptides in Skin Care Products
Science has proven that peptides can help in your skin and reverse the signs of aging. So how do peptides in skin care products make your skin look younger? Many skin care products contain them, so just what are peptides?
What are Peptides for Skin Care?
Human skin is comprised mostly of collagen. Collagen is a protein comprised of long segments of amino acids arranged like a chain.
• Collagen provides a foundation and thickness for skin
• Women under 30 have ample collagen, which results in smooth, tight skin
• The rest of us have less collagen-skin tends to be thinner, revealing more wrinkles
When collagen breaks down, short segments of amino acids are formed. These are the tiny proteins and active molecules known as peptides. Peptides in skin care can provide significant anti-aging benefits.
Skin Care Peptides Encourage Collagen Production for More Youthful Skin
When collagen is depleted by age and environmental factors, including sunlight, it is not fully replaced. As a result, smooth, young skin slowly becomes thinner and wrinkled over time. As collagen deteriorates, it produces certain peptides. Research from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) shows that these peptides send a "message" to your skin that it has lost collagen and needs to generate more. When skin care peptides are applied topically, your skin "thinks" that it's a collagen break down product and that your body needs to manufacture new collagen. You can successfully minimize wrinkles and give your skin a more youthful appearance with the application of skin care peptides that trigger the production of collagen. It is therefore important to use the best peptide cream possible Private Label Skincare Florida has combined the best of the peptides with the stem cell from the Damascus Rose, to create the ultimate in aging skin care. We have, the incredible science behind this remarkable stem cell.
Rose stem Cell
Rose from Damas
**Modulating the activity of the dermis**
**The Rose from Damas | Rosa damascena, Rosaceae
A symbol of beauty, love and renewal.**
Cultivated since the Ancient times, in Rome and in the Middle-East, that ancient rose, which flowers twice a year, has an exceptional fragrance, that made it one of the most important components in the perfume industry: it is the mother of Bulgarian roses, the roses dedicated to make perfumes. As a universal symbol of beauty, it was associated to the goddess of beauty Venus a long time. Then the legend of Adonis associated it to "renewal" and its etymology («rosa» from dew and rain in Latin) remind us of rose colored dew on the window pane. Since the Ancient times, it has been considered a medicinal plant, thanks to the well-known properties of its oil and petals:
Because "dermis" is at the origin of a firm skin, it is necessary to modulate its activity by extending the life of its essential components i.e cells, to get the skin smooth and firm and still looking young.
Contributes to densify the dermis. Helps to improve or restore the dermis functions and skin resistance.
Decreases deep and superficial wrinkles on the face, including mature skins, especially crow’s feet.
Restores higher levels of the synthesis of fiber and glycoproteins in the extra cellular matrix i.e. below the skin surface.
The Alpine Rose stem cells can survive the frost and dehydrating conditions of dry air and cold. And this protection appears to support more than the plant itself, as studies have shown the same stem cells can offer protection to human skin as well.
In vitro and in vivo studies the stem cells were shown to reduce the formation of carbonylated proteins. These proteins are a marker of skin aging. The stem cells were also shown to protect the skin against herpes occurrence due to their strong antiviral effect.
Oxidative stress was measured in vivo by examining the carbonyl protein content in human skin after exposure to UVA radiation. Compared to the placebo-treated skin samples the carbonyl protein content was significantly reduced in the skin sites treated with the Alpine Rose stem cells.
The Alpine Rose stem cells protected against damage induced by oxidative stress as well as defending against pathogens!
And in another study, Alpine Rose stem cells were again shown to have a protective effect on human skin as they did within the plant.
Our skin’s epidermal cells are responsible for skin cell replenishment, and this process slows down as we age, taking 50% longer for replenishment to occur. This study demonstrated that one key measure of renewal, the ability for the cells to form colonies, increased as much as 75% when penetrated with a 0.15% Alpine Rose stem cell extract. Stem cells were better able to counter environmental stress and retain skin cell vibrancy.
Don’t forget those rose-colored glasses! Nothing wrong with seeing the world in that beautiful way!
