Let’s Talk Peptides:
Octapeptide-3 (10% concentration) is one of the newest advanced peptide chains; it is a string of eight peptides that work “under the skin” to help relax muscles. A confocal profilometry analysis on volunteer subjects showed a reduction in wrinkle depth up to 63%. This ingredient is being dubbed “liquid botox”, but without the negative effects like restricting the flow of fascia in the way a neurotoxin does. Octapeptide-3 works to enhance the skin’s elasticity, promoting a firmer and more supple complexion. Although it is a synthesized ingredient, the body responds to it as a naturally occurring peptide, making it suitable for all skin types and concerns. The result is a visual reduction of wrinkles and expression lines.
Acetyl hexapeptide-8 is a well-regarded synthesized peptide with a chain of six amino acids that does wonders in managing skin wrinkles. It is backed up by clinical studies and is one of the best tried and true anti-aging ingredients. With its water-binding properties, and skin-restoring abilities hexapeptide-8 improves moisture retention in the skin, stimulates, and boosts collagen production. When applied topically, it works with the neurotransmitters that signal muscles in specific areas causing them to relaxing the muscle. The result is a more even skin surface, diminished appearance of roughness, a youthful and smoother complexion.
