Skin care is a fundamental ritual for our well-being; preserving healthy skin means glowing. Skincare is constantly evolving, research in cosmetics is advancing every day, and if among the many ingredients you never know which one to choose, today I introduce peptides, I’m sure you won’t want to be without them.

These ingredients are the stars of anti-aging skincare, valuable substances that enable us to treat our skin and keep it young and healthy.

What are peptides and what are they used for?

Peptides are chains of amino acids; we can imagine them as building blocks that make up skin proteins, such as collagen and elastin.

These two proteins make our skin smooth, firm and glowing. As we age, our bodies can no longer produce such proteins, the skin gradually loses elasticity, and the first signs of aging appear. Peptides are able to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, helping to keep skin firmer and firmer.

Peptides are also powerful antioxidants, fighting oxidative stress and protecting the skin from free radical damage.

Finally, some peptides have a moisturizing function, the latter being able to maintain a good water level in the epidermis, strengthening and protecting the skin barrier.

But are all peptides the same?

No, in cosmetics we find four types of peptides:
Transporter peptides that stimulate collagen production, making the skin more elastic and speeding up the skin healing process.

Enzyme inhibitory peptides that impart firmness and turgor to the skin, giving it a healthy and fresh appearance.

Neurotransmitter inhibitory peptides that inhibit muscle contraction, just like botox, but without stings!

Signal peptides that stimulate cell turnover and have numerous benefits, can moisturize, brighten, prevent and treat hyperpigmentation, and also have a powerful anti-wrinkle effect.

The Actopontine Biofuntional Peptide

Skean products are formulated with the peptide Actopontine Biofuntional , inspired by a natural component found in snail shells with adhesive action.
Its function is structural, stimulating collagen and elastin production.
This type of peptide improves the appearance of the skin, plumping it up and giving it a fresher appearance. The face will appear smooth and relaxed after only four weeks of constant use.

Actopontine TM is a registered trademark of Ashland.

How can I incorporate Actopontine Biofuntional into my skincare routine?

Skean products are formulated with Actopontine Biofunctional, for synergistic action and more noticeable results, I recommend the combo ESSENTIAL SERUM e ESSENTIAL CREAM two products designed to relax and smooth the skin.

Beauty addict tip: For even more noticeable results, use peptide-based products with a retinol product. To learn more, click here .
