GLYCERIN, PALMITOYL TRIPEPTIDE-5
It is a deep penetrating, bio-active ingredient that removes the appearance of any type of wrinkle. It has a unique sequence to mimic the body’s own mechanism to produce collagen. It therefore compensates for any collagen deficit in the skin and makes the skin look younger. In addition, it has skin moisturizing properties. It has been clinically proven to be safe and effective and can be used in any type of anti-ageing product for every aspect of wrinkle reduction.
Hexapeptide-10 is designed to improve cell adhesion, thus reducing the loss of skin firmness, dryness and yellowing of skin tone. It fights degeneration of the dermo-epidermal junction caused by aging, increasing the keratinocytes and fibroblasts. It stimulates the synthesis of Laminin-5, which helps in the cohesion between dermis and epidermis, improving elasticity and tonicity of the skin. It also increases cell proliferation and induces an increase in dermis density, resulting in improvement in skin smoothness.
Matrixyl- Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3
Matrixyl is the trademark name for palmitoyl pentapeptide-3, one of the powerful peptide molecules found in the latest generation of high-end anti wrinkle skin care products. This breakthrough ingredient stimulates collagen production in the skin. Matrixyl is a lipopeptide, a fatty acid mixed with amino acids. It is also considered to be a synthetic isomer (an isomer is a molecule that has an identical structure to another molecule but different atomic components). The active element in Matrixyl is called Micro-collagen - another peptide. Matrixyl was discovered through two branches of dermatological research: the search for substances that accelerate healing skin wounds and the study of what causes wrinkles. Similarly to copper peptides, Matrixyl stimulates the lower layers of the skin to heal themselves, thus accelerating the healing of wounds. Cells called fibroblasts are responsible for knitting together wounds of the skin. As you may know, as one ages wounds take longer to heal. This is partially because fibroblasts slowly lose the capacity for collagen production. Matrixyl stimulates the "matrix" layers in the skin -- primarily collagen and fibronectin. When stimulated, the skin produces more collagen. Loss of collagen is what leads to thinning skin and the wrinkling of newly inelastic skin. Matrixyl helps to counteract this natural part of the aging process.
