Ingredients Explained: Tripeptide

Here we reveal everything you need to know about Tripeptide Understanding the scientific-sounding ingredients listed on the back of your skincare can make all the difference to the results you achieve. Tripeptide is one such ingredient that can be particularly beneficial in an anti-ageing skincare regime due to the way it smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Read on to learn more about this powerful ingredient – from what it is, to the benefits to expect and how to use it.

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?
