The service was designed with the intent to meet the needs of the rapidly growing cosmeceuticals industry, which is projected to reach a global market value in excess of $30 billion by 2016.

More than just a custom peptide synthesis service or off-the-shelf surplus of generic peptide sequences, GenScript’s Cosmetic Peptide Service is designed to incorporate a number of features that specifically address the needs of cosmetic companies, including large-scale custom peptide manufacturing (up to 500 grams per month) and economical pricing, starting from $12.80 per amino acid per gram. Other features include high quality control standards, as well as customized project management and reporting.

“Since 2004 we’ve been synthesizing quality custom peptides for academics, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies,” said GenScript Marketing Specialist,Tiffany Campolongo, Ph.D. “We are constantly striving to develop an all-encompassing peptide service, and accommodating the cosmeceutical industry will help us to serve an even wider range of peptide applications from basic research to product manufacture.”

The use of cosmetic peptides as cosmeceutical additives has become increasingly common for a number of cosmetic companies in recent years. Though they comprise just a small percentage of a cosmetic product’s composition, cosmetic peptides impart unparalleled biological activities capable of signaling a number of biological pathways that result in wrinkle and fine-line reduction, firmer skin, and skin pigment homogeneity.
