THE SCIENCE BIT 👩🏼🔬in leyman's terms
What are Palmitoyl oligopeptides? What do they do? and Why are they important to use?
Palmitoyl oligopeptides are Pro-Collagen bonds of protein. They are very small and can penetrate the skin easily.
Imagine your skin as a piece of sponge. The sponge has little holes all over it, right! These little holes represent your pores. 👩🏼🔬FUN FACT: the average adult female has 20,000 pores on their face!
Take a penny and try and push it through the sponge, you can't! The penny is too big! The penny represents a whole collagen molecule. Now take a toothpick that has been cut into very small pieces. Try and push these through the sponge, they go through! The toothpick represents peptides...
When the peptides penetrate through the skin they link up and act like they keys that starts the engine in your car. They combine together to help form a new collagen molecule.
This is WHY they are so important..
1. They are small enough to penetrate through the skin
2. The help restore collagen in specific areas
3. By restoring collagen they plump out lines and wrinkles.
