Peptides

Updated: Mar 13, 2023

What are peptides? Why it is an essential ingredient in ageing and dry skin care.



Peptides are short chains of amino acids that are protein's building blocks. They are an essential ingredient in ageing skin care.


As we age our skin barrier becomes weak due to a loss in its structural protein and lipids needed to maintain it.


Peptides stimulate collagen production and strengthen the skin barrier.


A boost in collagen also boosts hydration and makes the skin look plump and youthful.


Peptides in cosmetics can be both synthetic and natural.


At Bambouberry we use hydrolyzed rice protein which is an effective natural peptide for ageing skin.


BENEFITS OF HYDROLYZED RICE PROTEIN FOR SKIN


  1. Deeply hydrates and moisturizes the skin.

  2. Strengthens the epidermis by nourishing it with amino acids and structural proteins needed to maintain the skin barrier.

  3. Stimulates collagen production and promotes cell regeneration.

  4. Helps protect the skin against free radicals.

  5. Beneficial for eczema-prone and sensitive skin.
