What is Tripeptide?
Peptides are compounds consisting of two or more linked amino acids (natural proteins) that can help to improve the condition of the skin. The number of amino acids that make up a peptide determine whether it is a di-peptide (2 peptides), tri-peptide (3 peptides), or more. Tripeptides are often used in anti-ageing skincare formulations due to the way they improve skin cell renewal and help to regenerate collagen levels.
What benefits can Tripeptides have on the skin?
Tripeptides are most commonly used for improving the look of ageing signs in the skin, particularly on delicate areas such as the neck. With regular use, fine lines and wrinkles can appear smoother and elasticity improved.
How can it be introduced to a skincare routine?
SkinCeuticals Tripeptide-R Neck Repair is a high-performance retinol cream that’s formulated with 0.2% pure retinol, 2.5% tripeptide concentrate, and 5.0% glaucine complex
to target visible signs of ageing on the neck. This powerful treatment is designed to be applied after an antioxidant serum, such as C E Ferulic, and before a moisturiser and sunscreen. We recommend combining it with Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 and Ultra Facial UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50 for best results.
