Copper Peptides Prevent Stretch Marks
During pregnancy or after the birth of child, majority of women develop stretch marks. Mostly they are told to live with those stretch marks as there is no way to remove these marks. But many of them use chemical based creams meant for stretch marks that may condition their skin.
The ingredients in most of the products are just to soften the skin. They are not meant for removing the root of the cause. Before looking for options for removing stretch marks, we should first understand the meaning of the term stretch marks.

Certain naturally occurring ingredients like copper peptides increase the strength of our skin and its composition. Various studies had shown that for the formation of a strong and flexible skin copper is a very essential component. By improving skin matrix strength the formation of wrinkles and scars could be avoided.

Soon various skin care products manufacturer started using copper peptide that was produced by snail’s as the prime ingredient of their product for applying on human skin. Earlier people were producing copper peptide synthetically before the discovery of Chilean farmers. This drove the interest of scientists to develop more effective formulas. Rather the serum which we get from the snails is a very complex component which contains various enzymes, antioxidants, peptides that are biologically good with living cells.
Earlier it was considered that it is not possible to treat stretch marks. But it was only due to the fact that there was no proper treatment for stretch marks. It has always been observed that the products produced by the nature are more effective than the man made products.
