SCOUT Organic Active Beauty - The Power of Peptides in Natural Skincare

The Power of Peptides in Natural Skincare

Often referred to as the building blocks for collagen, Peptides are naturally occurring amino acids that help to promote cell regeneration for supple, radiant skin as we age.

Whilst we often hear of their inclusion in healthy aging skincare products, there are quite a few misconceptions about how can this technology also be used within natural skincare.

It has been found that when applied topically, Peptides can positively affect the way our skin regenerates and prevents ageing due to powerful antioxidants and the ability to increase cell-turnover.

With remarkable results and naturally occurring efficaciousness, peptides were an easy ingredient choice for our Cell Renewal Peptide Serum.

How Do Peptides Work?

To delve a little into the science behind Peptides in our SCOUT formulation, these chains of amino acids include a combination of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline which then actively work together to produce collagen proteins.

When used in skincare these peptides tell the body to produce more collagen, and because the body is producing it, it has even greater longer-lasting and effective results.

The Healthy Aging Benefits of Peptides

Within our Cell Renewal Peptide Serum, we use a combination of Perfection Peptide 7 and Matrixyl Sinthe’6.

Both highly potent and scientifically shown to increase collagen production helping to combat deep wrinkles, having a combination of both in one product allows us to target several different signs of aging as well as reinforcing the skin’s own protective functions. 

Peptides can be used throughout the day and applied to even the most sensitive skin as they don't irritate the skin.

Peptides and Other Natural Ingredients

It was important for me to create a serum that not only delivered on our core principles of natural skincare but also provide tangible results. Hence the peptides included within our serum are derived from natural sources.

Formulated utilising 94% certified organic ingredients, we have chosen to combine peptides with a selection of healthy aging and antioxidant-rich Australian native superfood ingredients including green tea, ginseng, and fig to renew your skin and leave it feeling fresher, more hydrated and revived.

The Add on Game Changer

To bring down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and to keep pigmentation and uneven skin texture, enlist the aid of a organic and powerful peptides serum.  

My recommendation for using this collagen building blocks charged up, anti-oxidant rich, clarifying and hydrating Cell Renewal Peptide Serum is to use this every morning or night after cleansing your skin.  

Simply press a few drops into cleansed face, neck. Paying attention to the undereye area where fine lines are evident. Décolletage until it's absorbed. Use the gel daily for 4 weeks to begin with then once the results have been achieved drop back to 2 – 3 times a week.
