Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are naturally produced by your body, when it breaks down protein like collagen or elastin. Some of these small groups of amino acids play an important role in modulating the action of key skin cells. They can trigger a response to make more collagen or produce enzymes to break it down, along with a host of other actions. We like to use peptides as they are natural constituents of your skin and can produce impressive results in reducing the look of wrinkles along with normalizing other skin functions.
Peptides are not new and have been used for decades by the skincare industry. Of all the technologies available for performance skincare products, peptides represent one of the most beneficial. Balancing the types of peptides used with functional botanical extracts can produce wonderful clinical grade products. Trillium Skincare’s extensive formulating experience with peptides and natural extracts has resulted in unique products producing skin benefits that you will recognize shortly after using. Look for names in our ingredient lists that include the word peptide like; Acetyl Hexapeptide 8, Copper Peptide or Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7.
