Peptan enhances skin beauty

Peptan collagen peptides are safe, bioactive peptides, optimized to be easily digestible, highly bioavailable and effective in delivering specific benefits to skin tissue. Credible scientific research provides nutricosmetic manufacturers with vital information when looking to create clear differentiation for their products in a competitive market place.

Hair & Wrinkles Study

A new randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study1 shows that taking Peptan® collagen peptides goes beyond just helping smooth wrinkles. The study provides powerful scientific evidence that the oral supplement reduces scaliness and roughness of the skin and strengthens hair, and proves these benefits happen at lower doses shown before.1

Improved hair strength

  • Peptan B increases the mechanical strength of hair in 13%

Collagen peptides reduce skin wrinkles

Peptan B effectively reduces skin wrinkles:

  • 13% around the eyes  
  • 10% around the mouth

Skin Beauty Study

As the most widely researched collagen peptide brand on the market, Peptan's anti-aging benefits are well documented. Many clinical studies have shown that Peptan alone shows significant anti-aging effects after one month 3,4.

From about the age of 30, the activity of skin cells (fibroblasts) begins to decline, leading to a decrease in collagen density and the onset of significant signs of aging, such as wrinkles, dehydration, and decreased firmness.

Oral Peptan can internally increase and reconstitute the skin collagen network to counteract the effects of these aging and make people look younger. Peptan also stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid, providing good hydration properties. The efficacy of Peptan is supported by a large body of scientific evidence, including the following three

Collagen fragments were reduced after 0 weeks, 4th and 12th weeks of Peptan intake

Improving skin hydration

In a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial3, 33 women aged 40-59 received 10g of Peptan or placebo per day for a period of two months.

  • Peptan increased skin hydration by as much as 28% after eight weeks of intake.
  • Peptan helps counteract the appearance of dry skin typical in aging by increasing the skin's moisture levels.

Increased collagen density at 0, 4 and 12 weeks after Peptan intake

Stimulation of hyaluronic acid (GAG) synthesis

In an ex vivo study3 acidic glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) visualized by Alcian Blue staining in a histological analysis.

  • Peptan treatment significantly increased the amount of acidic GAGs present in the epidermis in a dose-dependent manner, to a max. increase of +745 %. This increase is mainly represented by hyaluronic acid since it is the main acidic GAG of the skin.
  • Peptan helps improve the skin's moisture by increasing the amount of water-binding hyaluronic acid in the epidermis.
