Peptides

Amino acids are the building blocks of life: the natural constituents of living tissues. Our body is made up of proteins (like collagen and elastin), which are long chains of amino acids joined together. A peptide is a chain of 2 to 20 amino acids. There are 20 different amino acids, and some are known to be “essential”. These cannot be synthesized on their own. The use of amino acid and peptides in cosmetics and supplements are the only ways to supply them for a healthy-looking, strong body. The “non-essentials” can be produced by the body but with age, the production slows down which can result in visibly unbalanced skin and hair. Verso uses three types of peptides as key ingredients: Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Tripeptide-1, and Palmitoyl Glycine.
