What are Peptides and why do I need them in my skin care?

Powerhouse Peptides

The topic of peptides came up at a dinner party this weekend.  Hey, it happens when you have a skincare business :-)!  My friend (and PPI customer), Audrey, brought up the topic of peptides. I laughed when she said, "I don't know what they are, but my sister said they are good, and I want them in my face products," exclaimed Audrey.

Well, your sister is right, Audrey, we should be using peptides daily.  Here's what they are and why we include them in our EWG Verified Peptide Eye Gel, and Bliss Face, Neck & Decollete Serum.

What Are Peptides?

Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin. When peptides form a long chain of amino acids, they become proteins. They are able to penetrate the top layer of our skin and send signals to our cells to let them know how to function.

The Importance of Collagen

Collagen is an important protein in our skin. It gives our skin its thickness, suppleness, and tone. When collagen breaks down in the skin (from age and environmental factors like the sun and stress), wrinkles form. Peptides applied topically to the skin can send a signal to collagen to prompt the formation of new collagen, and voila, you have the appearance of more youthful, healthy skin.

For the most part, peptides take some time to work (except for the immediate effects of some of the neuropeptides-like the ones found in our Peptide Eye Gel). Peptides are best applied in serums for a long period of time. You can start to see results in 4 to 12 weeks. Keep in mind that upkeep is so important with peptides.

Parisian's Pure Indulgence includes peptides along with a host of other potent ingredients, in our Peptide Eye Gel, to assist in reducing the look of under eye puffiness (cucumber, organic periwinkle, organic licorice), and those pesky crow's feet we get after a certain...ahem, age.

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
