Peptides (Amino Acids)

The term “peptide” is a generic name given to a small string of amino acids. Amino acids are the so called “building blocks of life”. They are very small molecules that have both an amine group and a carboxylic acid group. Peptides and specific amino acids help to produce collagen.

In the middle layer of the skin – the dermis – collagen helps form a fibrous network and stimulates new cell growth. Collagen also assists in the replacement and restoration of dead skin cells.
