Collagen is the most abundant protein in skin. Made up of long-chain amino acids strung together, collagen forms the support structure that keeps skin firm, elastic and healthy. Imagine your skin is a spandex suit. Collagen is the spand. Without it, there’s just ex, as in extra loose.
Up to about age thirty, your body’s collagen game is fierce. Beyond thirty, things start to tame. Your body’s production of collagen begins to slow and collagen begins to break down. In addition to aging, things like UV exposure and excess sugar (glycation) can contribute to collagen degradation.
When collagen begins to break down, the body produces small chain amino acids that create the building blocks for new protein. These mini-proteins are peptides and they signal your body to produce more of the all-important long-chain amino acids that make up collagen.
Peptides in skin care encourage the skin to produce more collagen by stimulating fibroblast cells to ramp up collagen production. They are the booster squad of cell function. Peptides firm, lift and strengthen skin structure to combat fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and thinning skin.
Additionally, certain peptides like the oligopeptides found in Vivant Skin Care products also stimulate the body’s production of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is collagen’s essential partner in keeping skin looking youthful. Collagen provides structure, while HA provides nourishing hydration. Neither can be truly effective without the other.
Peptides are a powerhouse of productivity when it comes to stimulating the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid and activating dermal metabolism.
