With scientific advances came technologies that improved almost all aspects of our life. One of the most far-reaching effects of science was seen in the field of skin care as new solutions were developed to help man deal with the increasing pollution levels and the ever-changing skin needs. An important skin care breakthrough came about with the discovery of retinol in the 1970s.
Retinol has since grown into one of the best skin care ingredients because of its anti-acne and anti-aging properties. Another major change came about with the introduction of copper peptides in the late 1980s. However, it was only in the 2000s when the true powers that peptides had to offer were discovered. To highlight the importance of peptides for proper skin care, OROGOLD Cosmetics tries to examine the role that peptides play in modern-day skin care.
Skin aging takes place because of a number of factors such as free radical damage, decrease in the production of collagen and elastin, increase in proteolytic activity, decrease in communication between cells and genetics. Each of these factors lead to a loss of firmness, smoothness, elasticity, skin tone and suppleness. The discovery of peptides might help people to solve these problems and delay the signs of aging.
Peptides are chains of amino acids that create proteins. These proteins are required for almost every single cell process. They enhance the antioxidant benefits, regulate body functions and reduce inflammation in the skin. The evolution of technology has allowed them to become more effective in addressing skin issues and providing the skin with a protein-rich diet that rejuvenates and nourishes the skin to give it a healthier and a stronger foundation.
ORO GOLD reviews some of the main skin care benefits of oligopeptide-68. Oligopeptide-68 is a complex peptide that contains twelve different amino acids such as glutamine, threonine, tyrosine, leucine, serine, aspartic acid, arginine, glycine and more. It inhibits MITF (Microphtalmia-associated transcription factor), one of the main regulators of tyrosinase, melanogenic enzymes and TRP-1 and 2. This peptide is known to offer a higher activity than vitamin C and is particularly famous for its skin lightening benefits.
Oligopeptide-68 is also famous as one of the most effective ingredients for skin brightening because of its Biomimetic liposomic time-release delivery system, which is very similar to the composition and structure of the skin. This makes it suitable for reducing unwanted hyperpigmentation, improving the skin tone and offering immediate results.
