Shirley, New York – Experts at Creative Peptides recommended cosmetic peptide products for skin care in a conference held on January 12, 2018. The benefits of cosmetic peptides were also well-explained.
“The anti-aging battle nowadays usually starts early when women enter their 20s or 30s,” reveals Dr. Jason Bonham, the leading scientist at Creative Peptides. “Based on scientific literature reports, some peptides acting as cellular messengers are capable of stimulating both collagen production and regulating the enzyme collagenase involved in collagen degradation. So they were added as ingredients in a string of cosmetic products, carrying good wishes for making skin look young and healthy.”
A variety of types of peptides are used in cosmetics. They could be classified into different categories under different standards. According to their mode of action, cosmetic peptides usually fall into four main groups: signal peptides, carrier peptides, neurotransmitter peptides and enzyme inhibitor peptides.
In the conference Dr. Jason Bonham explained the working mechanism of these four peptides respectively.
About Signal Peptides
Signal peptides works largely by stimulating production of collagen, elastin, fibronectin, proteoglycan, and glycosaminoglycans. For example, palmitoyl pentapeptide-4, commercially known as Matrixyl and discovered in 1999, is the most popular signal peptide.
About Carrier Peptides
Carrier peptides were named based on their role of delivering trace elements like copper and magnesium to the skin. The representative is a peptide called GHK-Cu, which has already been commercialized into a line of skin care products.
About Neurotransmitter Peptides
Neurotransmitter peptides perform their roles by inhibiting acetylcholine release through a variety of chemical interactions. For instance, acetyl hexapeptide-3 (with trade name Argireline) functions to relax muscles by inhibiting vesicle docking through prevention of the SNARE complex formation. Besides, neurotransmitter peptides are proved to be effective in reducing certain types of wrinkles as well.
About Enzyme Inhibitor Peptides
Enzyme inhibitor peptides inhibit the efficiency of a key enzyme in some processes of metabolism. Many of the enzyme inhibitor peptides are of plant origin. Some peptides derived from rice proteins work well to retain more collagen, while certain soy-derived peptides can help prevent pigmentation.
