Restores the elastic properties of the skin which is especially good for skin that has lost its tone and become loose.


A clear, light yellow to orange brown liquid with a characteristic odour.
It is an extract taken from the seeds of the sweet white lupin.
The lupins are grown in sustainable farming projects in the South West of France and the extract is taken by using a patented bio-enzymatic process.
The whole lupin plant is considered to be an important source of molecules for cosmetic and nutritional products.
Lupine Peptides is a blend of penta- and hexa- peptides that work as an MMP inhibitor. MMP stands for Matrix Metalloproteinase. MMPs action is to degrade proteins such as collagen and elastin, which are the defining features of connective tissue.
This is even more active after the skin has been exposed to sunlight. The Lupine Peptides inhibit MMP activity following exposure of the skin to sunlight.
This prevents collagen and elastin from being damaged, helping to renew skin’s outer layer, reducing the depth of wrinkles and stimulating the production of more collagen and elastin, giving the skin a more youthful look.
There are over 200 genus within the Lupin family and they have been used in one form or another since the Ancient Egyptians.
