Skincare technology is always advancing, and it can be hard for consumers to keep up. Skincare product companies tout their products with impressive scientific-sounding names like “pentapeptides.” So what are pentapeptides and what do they do?
Peptides are chains of amino acids used to build proteins. Pentapeptides are peptide chains with five amino acid “links”.
Peptides (including pentapeptides) are naturally produced in the body and are used to construct various proteins throughout the body—including collagen and elastin in the skin. When formulated in skin creams and applied topically, pentapeptides stimulate lower levels of skin to product collagen, elastin and release hyaluronic acid—components responsible for your skin’s texture, firmness, elasticity and suppleness.
As you age, your body naturally produces less and less collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. As a result, skin sags, wrinkles and loses its capacity to hold moisture and heal. By delivering pentapeptides to your skin through lotions or serums, you can increase natural production of essential dermal matrix components to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and boost your skin’s resilience.
