Marine Peptides

Marine peptides are proteins extracted from the skin of deep-sea fishes dwelling in the Antarctic, free from pollutants. With only 2 to 4 amino acid units, they are much smaller than average peptides. Abundant water factors (e.g. –COOH, –OH and –NH2) in marine peptides enhance hydration reaction at the cuticle.

Effects of marine peptides:

  1. Enhances skin elasticity: activates and boosts the number of parent cells at the dermis; facilitates synthesis of dermal collagens.
  2. Minimizes wrinkle formation and increases water content; eminently hydrating
  3. Whitens skin and clears spots: subdues tyrosinase activity and prevents conversion of tyrosine into melanin
  4. Slows down skin aging (anti-oxidizing)
