With new skin care ingredients and products being introduced to women constantly, it can become overwhelming to understand what these ingredients can do for your skin.
Peptides are one of the most promising discoveries in the last few years.
Learn more about this anti-ageing powerhouse, what it can do for you and how you can add it into your skincare routine.
What are Peptides?
Peptides are made up of chains (combinations) of Amino Acids.
They stimulate the formation of collagen by sending signals to cells to improve how they function.
Collagen gives our skin its thickness and suppleness.
As we age and our collagen production decreases and it breaks down. When collagen breaks down in the skin (from age and environmental factors like the sun and stress), wrinkles form.
Topical applications of a peptide-based skin care product will essentially help trick skin into boosting collagen production back to more healthy levels.
What are the different types of Peptides?
There are many types of peptides, but for skin care the most popular are collagen stimulating peptides, such as Matrixyl.
Matrixyl is a superb wrinkle filler, that stimulates the synthesis of 6 major constituents of the skin matrix and dermal-epidermal junction (collagen I, III, IV, fibronectin, hyaluronic acid and laminin 5) and is found in the ASI Multi-Peptide Serum.
How to use Multi Peptide Serum and for what skin types?
Gently press on with your fingertips and allow it to absorb into the skin for a few minutes before applying your usual serum and moisturiser.
You can use the Multi-Peptide Serum twice a day.

- Hyaluronic acid restores the skin moisture and plumps skin with hydration, helping to rebuild the health of the skin.
- Helps to strengthen the skin.
Uneven skin tone and pigmentation
- Oligopeptide reduces tyrosinase and melanin production and also has strong anti-inflammatory properties.
