SKIN<br />

Q&A<br />

with<br />

Daniel Isaacs<br />

DIRECTOR OF RESEARCH AT MEDIK8<br />

WHY DOES MEDIK8<br />

FOCUS ON PEPTIDES?<br />

One of the frontrunners in cuttingedge<br />

skincare science, peptides<br />

are proven to be truly powerful in<br />

targeting many different skin concerns.<br />

At Medik8, we have harnessed the<br />

many different powers of peptides<br />

in our Peptide Family of products.<br />

We have designed the range to be<br />

the perfect addition to our proven<br />

CSA philosophy (vitamin C and<br />

sunscreen by day, vitamin A by night)<br />

to transform your CSA foundation<br />

into a bespoke routine made especially<br />

for you.<br />

WHY ARE PEPTIDES<br />

IMPORTANT IN A<br />

SKINCARE ROUTINE?<br />

Peptides might be in the spotlight for<br />

their incredible skin plumping powers,<br />

but peptides are way more than a<br />

one-trick pony. Each peptide has a<br />

different action on the skin. Not just<br />

for skin ageing but also for tackling<br />

skin dullness, hyperpigmentation, antiglycation,<br />

moisturising the skin and<br />

much more. We wanted to harness<br />

as many different peptide powers as<br />

possible in our new Peptide Family.<br />

The ideal addition to your CSA<br />

routine, our full range of innovative<br />

peptide combinations can help to<br />

support many different skin concerns.<br />

WHO ARE THEY<br />

BEST FOR?<br />

Anyone who is looking to improve<br />

their general overall skin condition<br />

or target specific skin concerns,<br />

such as skin ageing, dullness,<br />

hyperpigmentation or just improve<br />

overall hydration.<br />

HOW ARE THEY<br />

BEST DELIVERED TO<br />

THE SKIN?<br />

Peptides can be quite large molecules<br />

and can benefit from additional help<br />

getting where they need to be in<br />

the skin. Many of our peptides are<br />

conjugated to fatty acids to make them<br />

more oil-soluble and help them to<br />

penetrate deeper into the skin. In our<br />

Liquid Peptides formula, we also use<br />

a drone-delivery system to help deliver<br />

our peptides where they need to go<br />

in the skin.<br />

We recommend using peptides<br />

alongside a CSA skincare routine<br />

(vitamin C and sunscreen by day,<br />

vitamin A by night).<br />

HOW CAN<br />

PROFESSIONALS<br />

INCORPORATE THEM<br />

INTO TREATMENTS?<br />

At Medik8 we utilise our best<br />

technology across our retail and<br />

professional offerings. Many of<br />

our facials include our best peptide<br />

products. For instance, our Clarity<br />

Facial contains both Clarity Peptides<br />

and Bakuchiol Peptides and, depending<br />

on the clients’ needs, our professional<br />

therapists have the option to use Liquid<br />

Peptides within our facials.<br />

WHAT’S NEW IN PEPTIDE<br />

RESEARCH?<br />

A really interesting and innovative<br />

peptide that is in our latest launch,<br />

Oxy-R Peptides, is Tetrapeptide-30. It<br />

works to help interrupt the pathways<br />

that lead to discolourations and uneven<br />

skin tone and will help visibly brighten,<br />

improve clarity and combat all types of<br />

hyperpigmentation concerns.<br />
