HYDRATION NEVER LOOKED THIS GOOD
Ceramides are naturally occurring lipids that make up over 50% of the skin. They enable water retention and healthy functioning of the epidermal layers. As we age, the skin loses ceramides. In fact, up to 50% of these ceramides can be lost between age 20 and age 70.
HydroPeach™ is a natural ceramide specially derived from Japanese peaches that helps promote smooth and radiant skin.
In fact, research indicates that HydroPeach can effectively restore epidermal moisture and improve dry and rough skin.* Clinical data shows that participants who supplemented with it for 20 days experienced better skin texture compared to those who did not. Peach ceramide was found to strengthen skin permeability and allow more moisture to be absorbed by the skin*.

MORE PEP FOR YOUR COLLAGEN
Collagen peptides are among the most sought-after commodity ingredients on the market today. But formulators and finished product manufacturers should be aware that the market is flooded with poor-quality collagen peptide ingredients of questionable origin, purity and quality. That’s why it’s critical, today more so than ever before, to source your premium-quality collagen peptide ingredients from a trusted company such as Maypro.
Collagen peptides are ideal for formulations geared to improving the appearance of wrinkles and the appearance of skin suppleness and elasticity.
Clinical studies indicate that supplements containing collagen peptides not only reduce dryness and increase elasticity, but also reduce wrinkle depth and promote the production of other skin-supportive proteins, such as elastin and fibrillin. Collagen peptide supplementation has even been shown to reduce cellulite in the thigh area of women aged 24 to 50 years. Maypro offers collagen peptides and tripeptides.
