The Power of Peptides

The Power of Peptides

Peptides are a chain of two or more amino acids bonded together in a specific order to perform functions in the skin through communications between cells, helping to improve and stimulate cellular functions.

Peptides are a chain of two or more amino acids bonded together in a specific order to perform functions in the skin through communications between cells. This "communication" can improve and stimulate cellular processes such as collagen and elastin production, tissue repair, or even relaxing muscle contractions.

Peptides are naturally found within the skin, but the amount of naturally produced peptides decreases as we age, making topical peptides essential for aging gracefully. Since each peptide has different effects, our skincare routines must include peptides of all kinds. However, we know that learning about each type of peptide and how it works can be daunting, so we're here to be your peptide guide! We'll explore the different peptides we use in our professional skin care and what concerns each one will address.


Acetyl Hexapeptide-8

Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is a neuro peptide compound that temporarily intercepts messages from the brain to prevent muscle contractions. Repeated muscle contractions, whether involuntary or intentional, will lead to wrinkles and fine lines on the skin's surface. We know that we can't always control our reactions and expressions, so using a peptide such as this will help tremendously to keep these signs of aging at bay.

Repeated use of GlyMed products that contain acetyl hexapeptide-8 will decrease the appearance and formation of fine lines that typically form around the eyes, mouth, and forehead.

This peptide can be found in: Daily Lift Serum, Intense Peptide Skin Recovery Complex, Bio-Renewal Serum


Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3

This peptide is one of the more powerful peptide molecules in the latest generation of high-end professional skin care products. Clinical studies have shown an increase in overall collagen synthesis and hyaluronic acid synthesis.

The increased collagen in the skin will result in fewer fine lines and wrinkles. At the same time, hyaluronic acid stimulates faster skin healing and reduces scarring. You'll notice a smooth and plumped appearance when using this peptide.

This peptide can be found in: Stem Cell Power Serum, Intense Peptide Skin Recovery Complex


Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7

Of all the peptides, this one seems to do a lot! This peptide is known for its ability to lighten the skin, reduce inflammation, improve skin elasticity, and stimulate the regeneration of collagen fibers. It also provides skin tightening benefits by increasing hyaluronic acid, attracting moisture into the epidermis.

Tightened skin, fewer dark spots, reduced redness, and fewer fine lines and wrinkles are just a few benefits of this potent peptide, a truly gentle but effective age-management ingredient!

This peptide can be found in: Intense Peptide Skin Recovery Complex, Bio-Renewal Serum, Atraxi Peptide, Peptide Serum, Age Delay Cream


Palmitoyl Oligopeptide

With cell-communicating abilities, this peptide can help skin cells function in a healthier manner. Skin cells work better by stimulating collagen production and encouraging the production of intercellular matrix substances such as hyaluronic acid. Increasing the skin cell cycle keeps your skin looking, feeling, and acting younger.

With this peptide, you'll notice firm, tight, and toned skin, creating a more youthful appearance. The added production of hyaluronic acid will help your skin retain moisture, providing a radiant, plumping effect.

This peptide can be found in our Intense Peptide Skin Recovery Complex


Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1

This peptide sends signals to the skin cells to trigger collagen and hyaluronic acid production while supporting connecting tissue to firm and tighten the skin.

As we age, the collagen in our skin naturally breaks down. You may also notice more dryness as you age since the skin becomes more prone to trans epidermal water loss. That's where this peptide can save your skin, as it replenishes and restores what is missing. When using this peptide, you may also notice reduced fine lines, wrinkles, inflammation, and an increase in the strength of your skin barrier.

This peptide can be found in: Bio-Renewal serum, Atraxi Peptide, Peptide Serum, Age Delay Cream



This peptide consists of five amino acids: arginine, glutamic acid, leucine, serine, and threonine. It helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin and encourages cell turnover and regeneration.

Pentapeitde-48 is a powerful ingredient used to even the appearance of the skin tone and delay common signs of aging, like sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. This peptide is both healing and preventative, so it's suitable for all stages of skin.

This peptide can be found in: Atraxi Peptide, Age Delay Cream


Copper Tripeptide-1

Copper Tripeptide-1 is a potent healing peptide that delivers essential nutrients to skin cells to aid tissue regeneration. As a regenerative ingredient, this peptide is both a treatment and preventative measure against the signs of premature aging.

With regular use of skin care products that contain copper tripeptide-1, you'll not only notice a glowing, vibrant complexion, but you'll also strengthen your natural skin barrier. An improved skin barrier protects your body from harmful bacteria, viruses, and other environmental damages that can enter a compromised skin barrier.

Acetyl SH-Heptapeptide-1

This protective peptide neutralizes free radicals and prevents oxidative damage that comes naturally with aging. While all skin types and stages greatly benefit from this ingredient, it is especially suitable for those who are using peptides as preventative skincare.

As we age, cellular turnover slows down, trans epidermal water loss increases, and our bodies produce less collagen, leaving the skin dry, dull, and compromised. Acetyl SH-Heptapeptide-1 can regulate the natural aging process, allowing room to age gracefully while maintaining healthy, even skin.

This peptide can be found in our Peptide Serum


Hexanoyl Dipeptide-3 Norleucine Acetate

This multi-functional peptide helps enhance the skin's natural exfoliation process to remove damaged skin cells and replace them with healthier, more durable skin. Hexanoyl dipeptide-3 norleucine acetate supports the natural exfoliation process rather than forcing it the way a chemical exfoliator would, making it a gentle option for aging, dry, and compromised skin.

This peptide is highly regenerative, so you'll notice smoother skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. You'll find your skin is healthier with a stronger skin barrier that protects against damage from external elements. Using a product with this peptide will serve you well now and for many more years to come!

This peptide can be found in our Bio Renewal Serum


GlyMed and the Power of Peptides

At GlyMed, we've created potent skincare products containing the most effective peptides. In our Next Generation of Peptides line, you'll find epigenetic peptides that heal the skin and protect against the early signs of aging. As one of the most effective solutions for aging skin, our peptide-infused products restore and treat the skin while serving as a preventative measure for those who have yet to demonstrate signs of aging.

As mentioned before, peptides are gentle on the skin, making our peptide products friendly to all skin types, skin conditions, and Fitzpatrick levels. If you are a skincare professional, make sure to join us virtually for our Higher Aesthetics Education Class that is all about our New Generation of Peptides line. You’ll learn the ins and outs of these peptide products from the Master Estheticians of GlyMed!
