Hydrolyzed Lupine Protein (Peptides)  Lupine Peptides Origin: France. Lupine Peptides is a blend of penta- and hexa- peptides derived from lupinlupine flower protein that works as an MMP inhibitor, thus preventing MMP activity following exposure of the skin to sunlight. By doing this the lupine peptides blend prevents collagen and elastin (the main proteins making up connective tissue) breakdown catalysed by MMP activity, Pentapeptides’ benefits for the skin include helping to renew skin’s outer layer, reduce the depth of wrinkles & stimulate the production of collagen & elastin, giving the skin a younger, smoother look and diminishes fine wrinkles, stimulate wound healing and reduce dark spots.
