Protein, collagen, keratin, elastin are natural substances well-known in cosmetology. They have been used for a long time and have positive effect on the skin. Peptides is a relatively new substance in beauty therapy, but already a very popular one.
How do peptides differ from proteins
Proteins and peptides have common structure. They both are chains of amino acids, but they only differ by the size of these chains. Peptide link consists of not more than 10 amino acids. Protein chain is much bigger – it may consist of hundreds of amino acids. It is the size of these substances that makes them differ.
Being a part of protein, amino acids can hardly get into the skin because of their size. The size of peptides is much smaller and they can easily get deeply into the skin layers thus making positive effects. Besides that, peptide chains are very stable, while lots of proteins may lose their health-promoting properties as creams compound.
How do peptides work
Cosmetic products consisting of peptides help to correct physiological changes and rejuvenate cells. Peptides have the following influence on the human’s body:
- maintain the necessary speed of stem cells division;
- help the cells maturation;
- control the required number of enzymes and receptors in cell;
- increase the intracellular system activity;
- enhance the cells viability.
