PEPTI-a.c.n.e. is unique in that the skin is not targeted but rather the bacteria’s environment, which is easier to access compared to living skin cells. Although antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) sound like they kill bacteria, they function uniquely by restoring a healthy environment for the skin amongst other functions.
PEPTI-a.c.n.e.’s goal is to cause communication confusion between bacterial colonies, building the illusion that they are in a losing battle against their host (the skin).
In this case, the bacteria do not try to advance further and ‘hold the line’ until the communication states that supplies are sufficient to move forward – that a quorum is reached.
These messages are communicated between bacteria and are the target of many types of AMP.
- AMPs give the skin a slight advantage, which is sometimes all that’s required to overcome the bacteria.
- A, C, & E Pro Peptides help to promote and support a healthy microflora in the skin barrier where bacterial microorganisms originate.
- N Pro Peptide tricks bacteria into thinking that proliferation (multiplication) is unnecessary. “Quorum Signaling”
You can see the high concentration of peptides in PEPTI-a.c.n.e. which cause liquid crystal formations in the bottle. Many of our products are so highly concentrated that if you leave a bottle open and some of the serum evaporates; you may find liquid crystals forming. Although many companies seek crystal-clear serums, we believe the real beauty is in the results, not the bottle.
