As a person ages, environmental exposure and a slowing cell turnover rate leads to an increase in wrinkles and dehydration of the skin.  Collagen is the protein (long amino acid chain) that keeps our skin tight and wrinkle free. When our collagen starts to break down, that's when a peptide's role becomes significantly more important.
