As part of the body’s natural response to help skin heal, peptides are instrumental in instigating cells in the skin to produce collagen.

But collagen isn’t just for healing wounds. It also plays an important role in how skin ages. Collagen is the support structure that gives our skin a firm, youthful appearance. When levels remain plentiful, our skin looks young and fresh. When levels decline as we age, we lose that support and wrinkles begin to form. Not only are the collagen fibers decreasing, the ability of the cells to produce collagen declines. While wrinkle-filling injections can temporarily fill in the gaps, researcher has shown that topically applying peptides to the skin will help increase collagen production and flexiblity of the skin within four to 12 weeks.

This would have a “filling” effect similar to the wrinkle injections, firmer, more youthful looking skin – but without the needle!

Peptides are highly specialized chemicals that the body produces: peptides in the skin help to facilitate the communication between the surface of the skin { the Epidermis} and the deep levels of skin { the Dermis} where all the growth and changes occur. The skin grows from the inside out, the bottom layer is the most alive and as the skin moves to the surface of the body it becomes less vital and more defensive to keep the outside environment out and the inside environment balanced. As the body ages, metabolism slows and many of the valuable resources that were used to sustain beautiful skin are used to maintain balance and moisture under the surface of the skin. If the skin is assisted with the correct bio-identical ingredients, it will respond as if the clock has stopped. Peptides increase collagen production, creating stronger more flexible skin that is less likely to sustain micro tearing and will retain more of its naturally occurring moisturizing elements.

IBC’s Anti Wrinkle Complex is formulated with bio identical elements that allow the skin to become more youthful, with fewer visible wrinkles and more moisture retention.
