Everything You Need to Know About the New Anti-Aging Peptide

 

What Are Peptides?

A peptide is a compound that has two or more amino acids. They play a vital role in how the body functions. 

They can serve as biological messengers that carry information from one tissue to another through the bloodstream. On top of that, a combination of peptides also forms different types of proteins, hormones, and enzymes in your body. 

Peptides perform various functions, so they have great potential for topical therapeutics. In fact, it can already be found in a variety of skincare products.

As building blocks of proteins, peptides are also the building blocks of collagen and elastin. Collagen helps keep skin firm, while elastin maintains the skin’s elasticity. 

When collagen and elastin stores are low, visible signs of skin aging begin to appear. The signs of skin aging include:

  • Wrinkles
  • Skin sagging 
  • Dry skin

As you age, collagen stores begin to decrease. Studies show that there are also age-related degradations of elastin

Researchers hope to be able to unlock the potential anti-aging mechanisms of peptides. Studies show that topical application of peptides can stimulate collagen synthesis and promote the skin’s metabolism.Unfortunately, when it comes to skincare, not all peptides are equal. There are hundreds of different peptides, so it’s important to determine which ones offer the most anti-aging benefits.

 

What Is Peptide RTE62G?

A new study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science identifies a new naturally occurring peptide with anti-aging effects. With the help of artificial intelligence (AI), researchers discovered peptide RTE62G. 

Peptide RTE626 is an unmodified peptide with extracellular matrix properties. This naturally occurring peptide comes from a plant source (Pisum sativum). 

 

How Did They Discover It?

In the in vitro experiments, they evaluated the effects of peptide RTE626 on human dermal fibroblasts and keratinocytes. They ran several tests to examine how it affects the following cellular functions:

  • Cell proliferation
  • Extracellular matrix protein production properties
  • Cell migration
  • Extracellular matrix protein synthesis and gene expression 

Ex vivo tests with human skin explants help clarify its effects on producing extracellular matrix proteins. To establish proof of concept, the researchers also ran a 28-day pilot test assessing the peptide’s clinical outcomes.

 

How Did They Verify Its Anti-Aging Effects?

In the in vitro experiments, they evaluated the effects of peptide RTE626 on human dermal fibroblasts and keratinocytes. They ran several tests to examine how it affects the following cellular functions:

  • Cell proliferation
  • Extracellular matrix protein production properties
  • Cell migration
  • Extracellular matrix protein synthesis and gene expression 

Ex vivo tests with human skin explants help clarify its effects on producing extracellular matrix proteins. To establish proof of concept, the researchers also ran a 28-day pilot test assessing the peptide’s clinical outcomes.

 

What Are Its Applications in Anti-Aging?

The tests show that peptide RTE626 significantly increases cellular migration and cellular proliferation. It also promotes the creation of extracellular matrix proteins for elastin and collagen. 

The 28-day clinical tests also show that peptide RTE626 has anti-wrinkling and collagen-stimulating effects. All of the tests confirm that peptide RTE626 has multi-functional anti-aging properties. So it has excellent potential as an anti-aging ingredient.

 

How Else Can You Prevent Skin Aging?

Using the right skincare products may be helpful, but there are other ways you can help reduce skin aging:

Understanding your epigenetics can help you know your skin’s state. Epigenetics doesn’t focus on just your genes, but it also looks into the different lifestyle and environmental factors that may regulate gene expression. 

By diving into your epigenome, it’ll give you a clearer picture of what your body needs. If you’re interested in learning more about epigenetics, visit the TruDiagonstic website today.
