The Power of Peptides


Peptides are short chains of amino acids, linked together by peptide bonds. There are 20 individual naturally-occurring amino acids which can be linked together in any order to give millions of different peptide combinations, with each assisting with different skin concerns. Peptides are also the building blocks of proteins. Our skin is naturally overflowing with different kinds of proteins and peptides.

When applied to the skin, peptides can act as communicators. They give your skin a specific instruction to do ‘something’, and that ‘something’ entirely depends on what order your amino acids are in. Every peptide has a unique superpower to target different skin concerns.


Peptides might be in the spotlight for their incredible results on the skin, but in fact, peptides are way more than just a one-trick pony. Each peptide has a different action on the skin. Not just for targeting the visible signs of skin aging, but also for tackling skin dullness, anti-glycation, moisturizing the skin and more! We wanted to harness the broad range of different peptide powers in our new Peptide Family. The perfect addition to your CSA routine, our full range of innovative peptide combinations can help to support many different skin concerns.


Boost your skin's natural luminosity with one of our most innovative formulas; Clarity Peptides. Infused with 10% niacinamide, alongside zinc PCA and peptide technology, it works wonders to promote a visibly flawless complexion. This milky serum promotes glass-like skin when you need it the most, ideal for anyone who feels like life is getting in the way of perfect skin. Clarity Peptides is an ideal alternative to BHAs for tackling visibly congested skin, particularly for sensitive skins.

If targeting the signs of skin aging is your main focus, Liquid Peptides is incredible in its peptide power. The innovative 30% peptide cocktail helps to smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other visible signs of skin aging. The hydrating, crystal-clear serum absorbs effortlessly into skin, infusing the complexion with moisture that works seamlessly alongside the peptides to smooth skin texture and visible lines and wrinkles. The skin is left soft to touch, with long-lasting hydration and ultimately with a more youthful look.

Finally, within our peptide family, we have Eye Peptides, a gel designed to hydrate and visibly smooth the delicate eye area. Infused with a complex of high performance peptides, this multi-action, eye serum helps to create a visible tightening effect around the eye contours for an immediate well-rested, bright-eyed look. This award-winning formula also harnesses the powers of hesperidin to support under the eyes for an even-toned appearance, plus glycerin to hydrate the delicate eye area.


Find your perfect peptide product to boost your CSA skincare routine; combining CSA with your specific skin needs. We like to keep things simple here at Medik8, creating the most efficient yet effective products we can.

Liquid Peptides, Clarity Peptides and Eye Peptides can all seamlessly fit into your current CSA routine. Liquid Peptides is water-based, therefore it can be used both in the morning and evening before oil-based serums such as C-Tetra Luxe or Intelligent Retinol 3TR, or any heavier creams you may incorporate into your routine. Clarity Peptides and Eye Peptides, however, are emulsion-based, therefore they should be used after both water- and oil-based serums but before heavier emulsions and creams. For example, at night time it’s best to use your Clarity Peptides before your Crystal Retinal or r-Retinoate Day & Night.
