Peptides

Amino acids are combined to form peptides that restore and maintain the skin’s youthful appearance by reducing the look of lines and wrinkles. Peptides are known as several names including Matrixyl 3000®, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (Pal-GHK), Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide (Pal-GQPR), Palmitoyl Pentapeptide, these powerful skin rejuvenating peptides stimulate collagen, elastin and moisture (AKA glycosaminoglycans such as hyaluronic acid) as well as other components of the skin matrix. These properties contain the matrikines Pal-GHK and Pal-GQPR acting in synergy to repair the cutaneous damages of age to improve firmness, reduce the appearance of redness and age spots, while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

Peptides have been proven to stimulate collagen production over 350% and hyaluronic acid production over 250%. Active ingredient found in Matrixyl 3000® formerly known and marketed as palmitoyl tetrapeptide-3 and now named Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, consists of a short chain of four amino acids (a.k.a. GQPR peptide or glycine-glutamine-proline-arginine) connected to palmitic acid. Palmitic acid is a fatty acid added to improve the peptide’s oil solubility and thus skin penetration and is thought to slow down the degradation of the skin matrix and may also stimulate its replenishment.
