Do you know the single most important ingredient you can use to stimulate elastin and collagen production? Let’s take a closer look at Copper Peptides.
Collagen and elastin are difficult to impact topically. Copper Peptides are the only ingredient that shows enough scientific support and evidence for being statistically significant. When Copper Peptides are applied topically, they have been shown to perform significantly better than Vitamin C and retinoid acids.
The Science of Copper Peptides
So, what are peptides? To get technical, a peptide is three or more amino acids that are linked together. Amino acids are the building blocks of every single cell in your body. You have probably seen them in relation to cutting edge health care.
Copper Peptides are well known in the skincare world with decades of data as a skin restoring ingredient. These studies support Copper Peptides as helping with skin improvements like skin firmness, smoothness, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen and elastin with improved antioxidant activity.
Peptide Benefits for Skincare
When used in skincare, peptides impact the cell structure in skin. There are great scientific studies that support the fact that Copper Peptides serve as antioxidants, while also helping to stimulate collagen and elastin production. They also help to remove damaged collagen and elastin from the skin. In addition, they can assist with acne by normalizing the bacterial concentration on the skin.
Copper Peptides work topically, meaning they can go past the epidermis. Since they help to support building fibroblasts, which are connections in your skin, Copper Peptides are incredibly firming while also providing anti-inflammatory benefits.
Does Sia Botanics have any Copper Peptide products?
We are proud to have 2 outstanding products that feature Copper Peptides as the key ingredient.
Copper Peptide Serum is a super gentle, yet concentrated serum that helps improve skin tone and firmness by promoting elastin and collagen production. With a thicker consistency and impressive coverage, we really love Copper Peptide Serum in the summertime as a replacement for a lotion. In the humidity, and it gets hotter, we tend to not need as much heavy coverage.
Mineral Mud Mask combines copper and clay for a weekly use mask that nourishes skin with trace minerals, helps smooth texture, helps decongest pores and powerfully supports your skin’s ability to maintain resilience.
In contrast to other masks, it won’t leave your skin feeling tight or dry. This Kaolin clay mask effectively detoxes skins and improves the appearance of pores, while also infusing the skin with hydration and Copper Peptides. Studies have shown that when applied topically to the skin, Copper Peptides support collagen resilience over time.
How do the Copper Peptide products fit into my skincare routine?
We suggest you use Mineral Mud Mask on a weekly basis in the evening. For a super hydrating routine, start by cleansing with Rejuvenating Cleanser for 60 seconds to remove the day’s make-up, dirt & oil. Once a week, or whenever your skin is feeling congested, apply the Mineral Mud Mask. Leave on for 5-15 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water to detox your skin and absorb excess oil.
With your skin prepped and ready to absorb nourishment, spritz on Rejuvenating Toner and pat into skin to aid absorption. Then apply 1-2 drops of the Copper Peptide Serum to skin. Lock in hydration with antioxidant rich Restoring Cream to moisturize and protect without clogging pores.
Pro tip: If you are someone who deals with extremely dry skin. Copper Peptide Serum is the great final boost before you apply your favorite thick or heavy cream in your wintertime routine.
Expertly Crafted for Results
It takes an expert formulator to work with Copper Peptides, as they are difficult to work with. The percentages are critical. In this case, more is not better. Too much will turn off the light, signaling neural transmitters that trigger elastin and collagen. It is important to formulate with ingredients that play well enough together to allow penetration and optimize the efficacy.
With the Sia Botanics seal of approval, go ahead and soak in all of Copper Peptide’s youth-preserving benefits and stay hydrated this season.
