Peptides are amino acids (protein)that are linked together in a chain to form a specific grouping. Some peptides send a signal to the body that more protein (collagen) is needed. This category of peptides is considered “wrinkle minimizers”. On the other hand, Hexapeptides (a chain of 6 amino acids) block neurotransmitters that cause muscles to contract and form wrinkles. This peptide is referred to as a “wrinkle relaxer”.
Peptides are active at very small doses and highly specific, having a very good safety profile when used physiologically – that is, to assist or change an organism’s physical processes. By stimulating fibroblasts, the building blocks of collagen, and signaling the skin to produce more protein, peptides increase firmness, tone, and diminish fine lines overall, promoting a healthier skin. Most people see noticeable changes within 4 weeks.
Rhonda Allison’s Peptide 38 uses the most cutting-edge technology and the next-generation peptides, the matrikine-mimetic peptide, creating one of the most powerful peptide complexes to date.
With a combination of very unique ingredients in just the right balance to give skin an extra edge in the aging business, Peptide 38 offers the skin continued regeneration support – reversing the signs of aging, keeping fine lines at bay and firming skin. With the added benefits of essential oils for oxygenating and rejuvenating benefits, skin will immediately feel plumper and more buoyant.
