Does Obagi have a peptide component?

I keep reading that peptides are the way to go to rebuild collagen. Does anyone know if Obagi offers this in their system?

Well, i'm a bit skeptical of peptides being the collagen booster it claims, but in answer to your question, no.

Obagi does have the elastiderm products with the coper zinc malanate which will stimulate collagen and elastin, but retin-a does a good job of keeping cells activated too, which builds collagen. Honestly, the best way to fill in the gaps is with a filler, or medical needling combined with topicals - trauma causes collagen formation!
