Peptides and Vitamins for Skin Care FAQ

1) Is Pentapeptide 3 truly the "breakthrough" in fighting fine lines and wrinkles?
Yes, as well as Retinyl Palmitate they are both great Vitamin A derivatives.

2) Why does our skin need Collagen?
Collagen plumps up the skin and causes it to look firmer.

3) So what does Pentapeptide 3 do for our Collagen?
Collagen is a skin conditioner that imparts smoothness of the skin. The ingredients Pentapeptide 3 and Retinyl Palmitate both cause your body to produce its own collagen which causes the skin to look pumped up (firmer).

4) Why do we now have Pentapeptide 3 and Retinyl Palmitate instead of Alpha Hydroxy
They took the place of Alpha Hydroxy Acids because the Pentapeptide 3 and Retinyl Palmitate ingredients are much gentler for our skin and because they are a Vitamin A derivative. Your skin needs many vitamins but Vitamin A is what has the most effect on helping your skin to produce it's own Collagen.

5) Does Vitamin C help reduce and repair Sun Damage?
Yes, Ascorbyl Palmitate, which Doctors say is the best form of Vitamin C does help to repair Sun Damage and can protect the skin from UV damage.

6) What about Vitamin E?
Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate) is stronger and more effective at repairing skin damage.

7) What about Vitamin B?
Vitamin B is super for providing your skin with a healthy glow and also for moisture retention that helps prevent drying out of the skin. When skin dries out it is like a raisin, it can form wrinkles. Vitamin B is called Niacin and also Pantothenic Acid. It’s really good for those with Sensitive skin.

8) I have heard that Vitamin K is great for dark circles, is it really? And is that all it's
good for? Vitamin K does help to repair dark under eye circles but it is also a good defense for discoloration under the eyes. Vitamin K is also great for redness, spider veins and bruises. Vitamin K is also used as a treatment for spider veins because it enters through the pores all the way to the damaged capillary or artery and helps the blood to clot, thus stopping any seepage (which is often the cause of dark circles) and allowing the tissue to heal itself. Vitamin C is also known for its ability to diminish dark circles.
