Medik8 Liquid Peptides™
An ultra-hydrating, crystal-clear serum that sinks effortlessly and rapidly into skin, providing you with the very best in anti-ageing technology. As the lightweight serum is massaged into the skin, the 30% peptide complex starts its multi-faceted approach to rejuvenating the skin. Collagen and elastin production is boosted, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed and the skin’s natural stores of hyaluronic acid are elevated. Skin is left soft-to-touch, deeply hydrated and ultimately more youthful-looking.

How to use
HOW IT WORKS
Peptides often find it difficult to get to where they need to be; they are large and dislike being around oil so they struggle to fit through the small, oil-based gaps between skin cells. Our 30% peptide blend contains an innovative delivery system which ensures that all our peptides can dive deep into the lower layers of the skin for optimal effect. Firstly, a drone-targeted copper peptide specifically targets fibroblast cells; skin cells responsible for making collagen and elastin. As the copper peptide is released into the fibroblast, collagen synthesis is stimulated and fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed in appearance. Cell penetrating peptides carve the way for the other peptides in the 30% blend. MATRIXYL™ 3000 tricks skin cells into producing more collagen, while Argirelox blocks signals for muscle contraction to minimise the appearance of expression wrinkles. Carnosine protects from glycation-based skin ageing while hyaluronic deeply hydrates, as prebioticsrebalance the skin’s natural microbiome.
Drone-Targeted Copper Peptide – A collagen stimulating copper peptide encapsulated in a polymer system which dives through the layers of the skin to specifically target collagen-producing cells.
Cell Penetrating Peptides – Special peptides which help to part the tide for the rest of the 30% peptide blend formulation to penetrate through the skin.
MATRIXYL™ 3000 – A combination of peptides which “trick” the skin into producing more collagen, helping to firm, plump and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Carnosine – A protective peptide that is naturally produced in the body, carnosine blocks skin-damaging sugars from binding to collagen in the skin, preventing the formation of wrinkles.
ARGIRELOX™ – An innovative peptide which works to fight expression wrinkles by minimising muscle contraction. Argirelox can block nerves from sending signals for the muscles to contract, visibly minimising the appearance of expression lines.
Multi-Weight Hyaluronic Acid – With a unique ability to attract and retain more than 1,000x its own weight in water, hyaluronic acid draws moisture from the surrounding atmosphere into the skin, leaving the complexion both nourished and supple.
Prebiotics – Based on carbohydrates, prebiotics act as food for the resident good bacteria living on the surface of the skin.
