Exactly what are peptides?


Collagen is a protein in the epidermis that maintains its thickness and suppleness.   While you age, your skin has less collagen, which can cause your skin to thin out and develop wrinkles (crepiness).   As collagen breaks down, the protein breaks up to the smaller chains of peptides, which then sends a signal towards the cells – and your body – to produce more collagen.


By applying the peptides to your skin, you can send the message to focused areas yourself!

Another important thing to note is that collagen production depends on adequate copper in your body and skin [1] . Copper peptides promote collagen and elastin production, and acts as an antioxidant. [2] It’ s been shown in studies to help remove broken collagen and elastin from the skin, because they activate the particular skin’ s system that is responsible for those functions.


Our anti-aging night therapy, Recapture 360 Night, works with your body’ s organic internal Bio-Clock or “ circadian rhythm” to help the particular skin’ s natural night time repair process. Based on the technology of epigenetics, an unique tetrapeptide helps activate the skin’ s rejuvenation process or Bio-Clock to optimize restoration of UV and IR sun damage and several effects of aging. Bio-Copper Complex helps to reduce the appearance associated with wrinkles, improve skin’ s firmness, smoothness & flexibility.
