Does your skin care contain Peptides? How effective are multi purpose peptides?
Relaxing Peptides, Anti-Puffiness Peptides, Anti-Dark Circle Peptides, Anti-Glycation Peptides, Lifting Peptides, Illuminating Peptides, Preservative Peptides
Why are Peptides in skin care and cosmetics?
There are so many kinds and most of them used in cosmetics are either poor quality or they use so little of them that it is almost like waving a chicken over a pot of boiling water and saying you made chicken soup.
With so many different types and quality of peptides its like comparing them to a meat market. From hamburger, fat, end cuttings, poor grades, thin cuts, to the average, medium, good and great types. Goat meat, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, beef .
Just cause it is on the label does not mean there is enough on it to do anything so don’t get caught up on extensive labels as often they are parts per million or parts per billion. Insignificant but if you put it in the formula then you can list it.
In this business it is called fairy dusting a formula for advertising and label claim.
The amount can be so small as to mean virtually nothing..so do not let a lot of peptides or maybe 30-50 ingredients listed sway you.
It is rare to see really powerful peptides, state of the art peptides used in skin care and cosmetics.
Since ingredients are listed in order of concentration, it would mean if they were all the same concentration they would be less than 1/2 a percent but since water is the first and then many of the inactive ingredients after it which are used in large amounts, I would say when you get down the list about on the 4th line, the rest of the ingredients are diminish in concentration accordingly. Any mind with a sense of math I believe would say the ingredients from line four are minuscule, perhaps insignificant and utterly meaningless with many, again in my opinion…but do the math and I think any open minded person would agree…there just could not be much of anything after line four which would have enough of the active peptide to be of any consequence, in my opinion of course.
Watch out for potentially harmful ingredients listed in skin care products some include:
- polysorbate 60 (carcinogen potential)
- polysorbate 20, (carcinogen potential)
- steareth-20,(potential carcinogen)
- sodium hyaluronate, (film former may retard respiration and release of toxins because it is a huge molecule)
- titanium dioxide (potential carcinogen – if not altered to make it safe)
- disodium edta, (potential carcinogen)
In skin care many of the carcinogens when created form 1,4, dioxane. It is not listed on the label because it occurs in the manufacturing process. It is in most breast cancer cells because it is fat loving..it is the ingredient in agent orange that the Vietnam vets are getting cancer from.
You cannot say it is in the formula of any particular skin care product unless you have done an analysis on it.
Equally serious they are potential endocrine disruptor’s and estrogenic mimics with a health hazard potential of significance.
