Nonapeptide-1 is known for its ability to help reduce skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation. This is because Nonapeptide-1 helps to inhibit the production of melanin, the pigment that gives our skin its color. Doing so can help brighten the complexion, even out skin tone, and reduce the appearance of dark spots and age spots. Nonapeptide-1 has also been found to have anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. By reducing inflammation, Nonapeptide-1 can help to prevent premature aging and promote healthy, youthful-looking skin. Nonapeptide-1 stimulates the production of natural moisturizing factors in the skin, helping to keep the skin hydrated and plump, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Nonapeptide-1 is a skin brightening treatment, a safer alternative to hydroquinone and kojic acid, that can help your skin return to a brighter complexion and more even tone. It can be combined with other ingredients such as vitamin C, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid to enhance its skin-lightening effects. The optimum molecular weight for skin penetration is said to be around 500 Daltons and Nonapeptide-1 is 1,206 Daltons. To solve the issue of penetration without PEG and other questionable penetration-enhancing ingredients, we have encapsulated this peptide in a liposomal format. 

Liposomes are the latest nano-scale technology for the encapsulation of cosmetic actives. This technology uses bilayer lipids(fats) to encapsulate active ingredients and protect them until the point of delivery into the target cell. The lipids used are extremely biocompatible with cell walls allowing them to bond to and release the active ingredient directly into the cells. Studies have shown that this method of delivery helps to time release the actives and increase absorption by as much as 7 times. Not only do you need less of the active ingredient to achieve better results, but the steady absorption over time will increase the benefits between applications.

You can add our Nonapeptide-1  to any skincare product (serum, cream, lotion, or moisturizer) or make a custom skin conditioning formula.
