Elastin peptide

Elastin is a protein found in connective tissues, but a different type of protein than collagen. It has the actual property of being elastic. It’s responsible for allowing tissues in the body to “snap back” to their original shape after being stretched or contracted. For this reason, it’s often compared to a rubber band.
Elastin is found in artery walls, in the lungs, in the intestines, and in the skin. Imagine how blood vessels expand, for instance, when the blood pumps through, but then contract again as they empty. Or how you can pull your skin back, but when you let go, it returns to its normal shape. Elastin is responsible for these actions.
 
What is the difference between elastin and collagen?
Collagen’s main benefit is strength. It’s comprised of very strong fibers that have impressive tensile strength, and is the foundation upon which the outer layer of the skin is anchored. Elastin is not as plentiful in the skin as collagen, but is critical for skin function. It provides softness and elasticity to skin, forming a three-dimensional network between the collagen fibers.
