Peptides in Skincare.

The word “peptide” keeps popping up in skin care products. What is a peptide and why is it the star ingredient in skincare?

A peptide is made up of amino acids and defined as a group of 2 or more amino acids. Amino acids are essential for cell structure and metabolic processes. Our cells, muscles and tissue are made up of amino acids. Amino acids link together to form chains. When a chain gets to a certain length, it forms a protein. Proteins are needed to build skin. Without them, skin will not remain intact. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and so, without peptides, there cannot be a protein. The most common protein found in skin is collagen which provides elasticity, structure and the radiant, youthful appearance. Our bodies naturally produce collagen but this decreases as we age. Therefore signs of ageing start to appear and skin loses its youthfulness and elasticity. Peptides applied topically help to slow down the collagen depletion that occurs with age and lifestyle factors and restore skin firmness and radiance.

ReNew21 is the Peptide we should all be talking about. Exclusive to German Skincare Brand 21 Trans-Dermal, it was used in medical research to grow dermal tissue. RenNew21 does not contain any animal by products whatsoever as 21 Trans-Dermal is a vegan skincare brand. In fact, it is a revolutionary herbal peptide proven to aid in wrinkle reduction, tissue regeneration and skin tightening.  ReNew21 is featured exclusively in the 21 Trans-Dermal skincare range as a key ingredient to promote collagen production in the skin, leading to a noticeable improvement in skin appearance.
