Your custom Revea regimen is formulated with powerful, age-fighting peptides. Let’s dive into the science behind how peptides work & the types we source to create your precision regimen.

What are Peptides?

Peptides are strings of amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein in our bodies. Without these proteins, the health of our hair, skin, and nails will be affected. Peptides signal the production of collagen and elastin fibers, promoting firmer and plumper skin. In addition, peptides help repair skin damage, even out the skin’s tone, ease inflammation, and strengthen the skin barrier.

Peptides in Skin Care

While peptides are naturally present in our bodies, collagen production decreases with age which leads to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When applied topically, peptides penetrate the outer layer of the skin and act as messengers, telling cells to produce more elastin, hyaluronic acid, and collagen to heal skin wounds and injuries. Introducing exogenous peptides into your skin care regimen, therefore, tricks the skin into thinking there’s a wound that needs healing which stimulates the collagen-producing process.

Peptides in Revea’s Formulations

Hundreds of peptides exist, but some are more efficacious for the skin compared to others. In creating your custom Revea regimen, we utilize the following peptides to help boost the skin’s collagen production:

  • Benthi Plant Peptides (Reneseed™): Engineered through biotech, Reneseed™ provides your Revea formulation with signaling peptides that replenish the skin’s firmness from within to visibly smooth out fine lines and pores. When combined with energizing ingredients, the rejuvenating power of Reneseed™ is enhanced.

  • Hesperidin Peptide Complex (Eyeliss™): This patented peptide complex helps protect your skin’s nutritional flow, especially in thinner areas of your facial skin such as around the delicate eye area. When combined with anti-aging ingredients, Eyeliss™ helps provide the skin with additional nutrients for repair.

  • Palmitoyl Peptides (Matrixyl® 3000 Free): This mixture of peptides stimulates collagen synthesis to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and promote skin smoothness. Palmitoyl peptides work by sending potent signals to your dermal fibers for a natural collagen renewal process. When combined with skin soothing ingredients, the natural repair mechanism of Matrixyl® 3000 Free increases in efficiency.

  • Acetyl Hexapeptide (Argireline® Amplified): A powerful hexapeptide, Argireline® Amplified helps minimize the impact of cellular aging and smooth the appearance of worry lines. Combined with skin soothing ingredients, this peptide helps to provide you with an even and smooth skin base.

  • Acetyl Tetrapeptide (Uplevity™): A potent peptide solution that promotes the production of structural dermal fibers, Uplevity™ helps counteract skin sagging while restoring your skin’s density, elasticity, and firmness. Combined with skin brightening agents, Uplevity™ helps restore a youthful glow by scattering back more light from the deeper layers to the skin’s surface.
