Unbelievable Skin Is Our Forte

And Our Secret Sauce Comes Through Decades of Unprecedented Science

The question you're asking: "What distinguishes SkinHealix from other skin care lines?" Answer: The “secret sauce” lies in our proprietary peptides we formulate, combined with botanicals found in the Far East, and then designing the most effective delivery system to transport the ingredients to exactly where they are designed to go.

Understanding Peptides

You may know a lot about proteins but may be less familiar with their smaller family member, peptides. Peptides like proteins are fundamental components of cells that carry out important biological functions. Structurally, proteins and peptides are very similar, being made up of chains of amino acids that are held together by peptide bonds (also called amide bonds).

What differentiates proteins from peptides? To put it simply they are smaller than proteins and different in structure. Peptides are defined as molecules that consist of between 2 and 50 amino acids, whereas proteins are made up of 50 or more amino acids. Hence, proteins essentially are very large peptides. Some use the term peptide to refer specifically to oligopeptides, or otherwise relatively short amino acid chains, with the term polypeptide being used to describe proteins, or chains of 50 or more amino acids. To dive just a little deeper with peptides depending on the number of amino acids, peptides are called dipeptides, tripeptides, tetrapeptides, and so on.

It is very important to know that peptides occur naturally in every cell of every living thing. They have many functions, including the production of enzymes to help your body break down foreign substances, and create antibiotics for your immune system and hormones that control everything from growth to sexual development. Without peptides, life would not be possible.

Not All Peptides Are Created Equal

Peptides are like a unique key that can turn the tumblers of a lock... pair the right keys with the right locks and your biological processes do the rest.

Peptides can be very effective in skin care when formulated correctly and combined with the critically-important delivery system.

We give the example of peptides being like a unique key that can turn the tumblers of a lock so that it can be unlocked or locked. In other words specifically designed peptides can turn on, or turn off, a desired reaction. Just to say that skin care or other products contain peptides can be meaningless. The sequence and structure are where the science and the effectiveness lie. Equally important is whether the peptide can reach and communicate with the proper receptors. This is critical in determining how effective any peptide will be.

Dr. Chanda Zaveri, the Chief Science Officer at Genesis Global was the very first scientist to introduce peptides to the skin care industry in a product called B2 Actiogen in 1994. She and her scientists have continued innovating in this realm and have formulated highly-effective, and highly-targeted, peptides that precisely trigger, promote, and unlock the desired biological outcomes.

Despite all of the hype and noise in the marketplace when it comes to peptides and skin care the rule to follow is consistent use over time is essential if real changes are to be expected.
