Inyline™ Acetyl Hexapeptide-30 (and) Arginine (and) Caprylyl Glycol Caprylyl Glycol. Works to decrease muscle contraction leading to muscle relaxation. From a cosmetic point of view, in the treatment of expression wrinkles, its pathway is critical in the contraction process and therefore relaxing those muscles results in decreased wrinkles, smoother skin and wrinkle depth decrease.
Collagen Referred to as Hydolyzed Collagen, sometimes referred to as Marine Collagen) provides an important function in the skin matrix, not only for its structural properties, but also for its ability to help hold moisture in the dermis. Collagen fibrils provide the rigid dermal framework around which the moisture binding proteoglycan structure is woven. Elastin fibrils supply the whole structure due to their elasticity. The appearance of the skin is directly proportional to its ability to bind water. Hydrolyzed, bovine and marine Collagen, affords excellent moisturizing properties resulting in smoothing fine lines and wrinkles; improving skin tone and texture, increasing elasticity, decreasing the appearance of wrinkles, gaining skin suppleness and radiance.

Matrixyl™ 3000 Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-1 and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7. Matrixyl simulates the "matrix" layers in the skin, primarily collage and fibronectin. When stimulated, the skin produces more collagen. Loss of collagen is what leads to thinning and wrinkling of your skin. Matrixyl™ 3000 helps to counteract this natural part of the aging process. Used in our Miracle Multiple Peptide Serum.
Pepha®-Tight is a highly purified produced extract from the Nannochloropsis oculata and Pullulan. It functions as a skin tightener containing vitamin C, B12 and E. Clinical studies have proven immediate tightening to the skin, long term tightening and having a cumulative tightening effect through the strengthening of the skins connective tissue. Pepha tight also protects from oxidative stress (damage from free radicals & environmental effects) and increases in the formation of collagen-l. It is rich in amino acids and these make it a powerful antioxidant. Used in our Time Freeze Eye Cream and our Reverse and Repair Night Cream.
Syn®-Coll (Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5) is a peptide designed to stimulate the skin's natural mechanism to produce collagen. It is based on a small peptide developed to reduce any type of wrinkles. It stimulates collagen synthesis, actively removes any type of wrinkle, additional skin firming and moisturizing properties, clinically proven to be safe and effective as part of a skin care routine within anti aging skin products. Skin aging and in particular chronic UV exposure, leads to degenerative changes in skin. This is characterized by distinct alterations in the composition of the dermal extra cellular matrix (ECM). The consequences are manifold such as increased skin fragility, leathery skin appearance and formation of wrinkles. Collagen represents the main component of the ECM of the dermal connective tissue. Thrombospondin I (TSP) is a multi functional protein that activates the latent but biologically inactive form of TGF (Tissue Growth Factor). TGF is known as the key element in the synthesis of collagen and binds to a particular sequence in the TSP molecule. This sequence is known as ARG-PHE-LYS. As a molecule able to activate TGF, SYN®-COLL is considered to be an ideal aqueous based peptide. It contains a unique sequence designed to mimic the human body's own mechanism to product collagen via TGF. Accordingly, SYN®-COLL actively compensates for any collagen deficit, thus making the skin look younger. Used in our Miracle Multiple Peptide Serum and Reverse and Repair Night Cream.
Syn®-Hycan is a tripeptide offering a number of benefits. It increases the padding between skin cells, fortifies collagen fibrils, and visibly remodels the skin for a firmer more youthful look. Syn-Hycan boosts hyaluronan production in the skin. It increases the expression of Decorin (a pericellular matrix protein which is a component of connective tissue, binds to Type I collagen fibrils and plays a role in matrix assembly) and Lumican (reorganizes collagen fibril regulation, epithelial cell migration & tissue repair). The function of Syn-Hycan is to provide visible skin remodeling of facial and neck contours. Used in our Ultra Lift Day Cream.
Syn®-Tacks Glycerin (and) Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5 Diaminobutyloyl Hydroxythreonine (and) Palmitoyl Dipeptide-6 Diaminohydroxybutyrat. Provides structural and functional integrity to our skin, but that functionality starts to decline around the age of 30. This decline in functionality proceeds and is even accelerated by external and environmental influences such as UV light, resulting in decreasing skin compactness, elasticity and a lack of skin firmness. Syn Tacks improves epidermal nourishment; molecular communication within the skin; improved skin compactness; skin tonicity; reduced wrinkles; improved skin firmness. An ideal addition for anti skin care products, moisturizers, skin care. Used in our Miracle Multiple Peptide Serum.
Trylagen PCB Pseudoalteromonas Ferment Extract, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Tripeptide 10 Citrulline, Tripeptide 1. A combination of peptides and proteins that affects the quantity and quality of collagen. It acts on collagen via 3 main functions: Collagen boosting, organization and protection. Collagen boosting: Trylagen® boost the synthesis of collagen types I, III and IV, helping to compensate for our decreased production as we age. Collagen organization: Trylagen® controls collagen fibril dimensions by changing their diameter, and spacing them regularly. This provides a better cohesion and stabilization of collagen fibers, and gives suppleness to the skin. Collagen protection: Trylagen® inhibits the production of human MMP-2 and MMP-3, therefore avoiding excessive collagen damage. It also protects skin from the loss of elasticity. Trylagen® helps maintain our collagen quantity and quality, and this is translated into a significant anti aging effect. Used in our Lift and Repair Eye Gel.
Studies have proven a decrease in skin roughness, a reduction in wrinkle volume, a decrease in wrinkle depth on the face and neck, including an increase in skin thickness. In further clinical studies, Matrixyl™ 3000 was show to increase overall collagen synthesis by up to 71%, increase collagen IV synthesis by up to 64%, increase hyaluronic acid synthesis by up to 67%. Deep wrinkles were reduced by half and some smaller wrinkles and fine lines faded away completely. The result was fewer wrinkles and younger looking skin. It is well tolerated and no side effects have been reported.
Snap-8 Acetyl hexapeptide-3 (fragment of Snap-25, a substrate of Botox). It is considered a safer and a more reasonably priced topical alternative to Botox in anti aging skin care products. In clinical studies, the severity of wrinkles around the eyes decreased up to 63.13%. It reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially around the eyes. It inhibits SNARE complex formation (muscle contraction), resulting in the reduction of the degree of existing facial wrinkles and demonstrated effectiveness against preventing the formation of lines and wrinkles with regular use as part of your skin care routine. Used in our Time Freeze Eye Cream as it is great for crows feet.
Argireline NP (Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 or Acetyl Hexapeptide-8) Dr. Oz recently praised the use of Argireline in natural skin care products as one of the must use anti aging anti wrinkle skin care ingredients! It is a must have ingredient and our customers agree! Although the effects cannot be compared to the injected effects of Botox, when Argireline is applied topically to the skin, the effects of aging are drastically reduced- Argireline is considered by experts to be one of the best non- pharmaceutical, safer and cheaper topical alternatives to Botox. Argireline is a peptide similar to Snap-8 that inhibits SNARE complex formation, resulting in the reduction of the degree of existing facial wrinkles and demonstrated effectiveness against their development with regular use as part of your skin care routine. In clinical studies of twice-a-day skin care treatment, Argireline decreased the severity of wrinkles around the eyes up to 17% after 15 days and 30% following 30 days of treatment. Pure Radiance Natural Skin Care Peptides are meant to be powerful! Used in our Miracle Multiple Peptide Serum.
Leuphasyl® Glycerin and Pentapeptide-18. Treats expression lines, forehead wrinkles and crows feet in anti aging skin care products. Clinical trials were performed showing immediate line smoothing & tightening; where the severity of wrinkles decreased 17% after 15 days, and up to 32% after 28 days. Leuphasyl®’s mechanism mimics in vitro the natural mechanism of enkephalins. It couples to the receptor on the outside of the nerve cells and a conformational change initiates a cascade inside the neuron that results in a decrease of its excitability (the nerve cell’s activity is “turned down”) and the release of acetylcholine is modulated. Muscle contraction will be relaxed and therefore, expression wrinkles will be diminished. It reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead, mouth and around the eyes.
Pure Radiance Natural Skin Care uses multiple peptides in all of our natural skin products. Peptides occur naturally in the body and are composed of amino acids. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins and many other different types of organic molecules. When peptides are added to natural skin care ingredients, they communicate by directing the skin cells to behave in a certain way, such as to produce more collagen, relax facial tension, tighten sagging skin or thicken the skin. The anti aging product (facial cleanser, antioxidant toner, wrinkle cream or serum) that contains peptides, becomes increasingly effective and powerful and skin rejuvenation is rapidly enhanced.
We are pleased to offer a variety of carefully selected multiple peptides at maximum percentages in our anti aging and anti wrinkle treatments. Our products are formulated to not only rejuvenate the skin through rapid cell turnover, but to produce new collagen, strengthen capillaries, increase micro-circulation, reduce muscle contractions, and increase cellular communication, resulting in improved epidermal nourishment, skin compactness, reduced lines, wrinkles and crows feet; improved structural integrity and skin tone, skin firmness and elasticity.
We encourage all of our customers to gain knowledge of the ingredients we use and the incredible results they produce. Read further to discover the wonderful world of peptides and their benefits. See our Pure Radiance Natural Skin Care Shopfor individual product listings and to make your purchase.
