Elemis' Drone Peptide targets stressed skin

British skincare brand Elemis have enhanced their Pro-Collagen skincare collection further, by adding Smart Technology. New Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix features Drone Peptide Technology to target areas of the face where stress is shown the most.

The formulation features a blend of Padina Pavonica, Microalgae and Wild Indigo Oligosaccharides which works throughout the night to help restore the natural balance to stressed skin. It also includes encapsulated Peptide4 and Hetra-Peptide, a dual action formulation which protects the delivery of the actives and helps with penetration into the skin's surface.

Noella Gabrielle, Elemis co-founder, explains:

“The skin, like the brain, is a living organ, and the effects of stress on its functioning are severe. In fact, studies indicate that stress causes a decline in skin barrier function. The prolonged release of stress hormones in the skin causes a decrease of Hyaluronic Acid production, contributing to the breakdown of collagen and overall cellular ageing. Loss of collagen, loss of elastin and depleted Hyaluronic Acid share a common side effect: an increase in fine lines and wrinkles.

"Pro-Collagen Overnight Matrix has a smooth gel-cream texture that glazes over the face, creating a protective matrix that mimics the skin to seal in hydration, helping to prevent trans-epidermal water loss. When you drift off to sleep, its Drone Peptide Technology goes to work, targeting areas of the face where stress shows most. Our goal is for you to wake up to beautifully hydrated, younger-looking skin.”

Elemis report that after use, hydrated skin is visibly firmer and smoother, and complexions have a more youthful appearance.
