Peptides perform a variety of functions. They function as messengers in the skin, allowing the epidermis and dermis to communicate more efficiently to help promote more radiant, younger looking skin. This may sound insignificant, but research is showing that in high doses their effect is quite measurable.
As we age, communication diminishes within the skin, resulting in decreased collagen production and an accumulation of weakened elastin fibers. Medik8 offers a range of products containing high dose peptides under the Pretox name.
