Peptides Collection

Are you ready to dive deep into ageless results? Read more to find out how peptides help target the visible signs of ageing for more rejuvenated, lifted, firmer looking skin.

You have likely heard the word ‘peptides’ as a must-have anti-ageing ingredient to smooth, repair and hydrate skin, but have you ever wondered whether it’s just a buzzword or is it really an ingredient you need in your skin care?

Here we’ll explain what peptides are and how our new Marine Flower Peptide Collection can help fight the look of ageing.

What Exactly Are Peptides?

A peptide is a molecule consisting of smaller chains of amino acids making them more easily absorbed by the skin.

Amino acids are essentially the building blocks for both peptides and proteins – but the two are not to be confused. Proteins, like collagen, keratin and elastin, make up the structural elements of your skin and hair. Peptides on the other hand carry messages telling your skin what is happening.

What Are the Benefits of Peptides in Skin Care?

When it comes to enhancing your skin, applying topical skin care products can help as peptides act as little messengers triggering skin cells to perform specific functions.

Once past your epidermal layer, peptides send a signal to your skin to start repairing itself by trigging a boost in collagen production, resulting in healthier, smoother looking skin.  Using products that penetrate the skin barrier like a moisturiser, serum or eye cream are most beneficial.

How Do Eminence Use Peptides in The Marine Flower Peptide Collection?

Collagen is an important protein that gives skin support and elasticity. As ageing occurs, we see a decrease in collagen synthesis and an increase in its degradation. The Marine Flower Peptide Collection features natural active ingredients from both land and sea, including globally and sustainably-sourced algae, plant extracts and botanical peptides to help stimulate and support collagen production for a more visibly rejuvenated, lifted and firmer-looking skin.

Where Do Eminence Source Their Peptides From?

The Marine Flowers in this collection are an assortment of freshwater and saltwater algae. Considered ‘superfoods’ of the sea, they deliver essential nutrients, minerals and amino acids to the skin to increase firmness and instant hydration. They also contain compounds to boost the skin’s natural defence against the drying effects of the sun and visible signs of ageing.
