Peptides (copper tripeptide-1 0.01% - 0.05%, hexapeptide-11 0.01% - 0.10%, hexapeptide-9 0.05% - 0.15%, tripeptide-1 0.05% - 0.25%, palmitoyl tripeptide-1 0.05% - 0.25% and palmitoyl pentapeptide-4 0.05% - 0.15%). There are many different kind of Peptides and they are naturally present in our skin. They all are a combination of aminoacids. Some of them work as natural antibiotics, promote wound-healing and production of collagen. The science is still not settled on how effective Peptides are in skincare, but it is very likely that they have a benefit. They might help restore the skin barrier and fight the signs of aging. At the very least, Peptides work as humectants: they attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improve its hydration.

This product also contains ingredients called “occlusives”. They help reduce the speed with which our skin loses
moisture to the outside environment. These ingredients also help soften the upper layer of the skin, so it feels
less tight and nicer to the touch. The following ingredients in this product do the job:
arginine, hydrolyzed collagen.
The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with
the hydration level: copper tripeptide-1, hexapeptide-11, hexapeptide-9, palmitoyl pentapeptide-4, tripeptide-1
A typically plant-derived compound that is supposed mimic human collagen. Cannot penetrate the skin barrier so is not particularly useful in skincare products beyond attracting water to the upper layer of the skin
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Attracts water into the upper layer of the skin. A version of it is naturally present in skin
This product contains copper tripeptide-1, hexapeptide-11, hexapeptide-9, palmitoyl pentapeptide-4, tripeptide-1.
