Peptides are the natural choice for restoring damaged, ageing skin. These nontoxic, anti-ageing substances:
- Trigger increased collagen production
- Enhance antioxidant defence
- Improve cellular repair
Research has now pinpointed three peptides with particularly potent effects. The result is a softer, smoother, more radiant youthful-looking skin.
This novel peptide combats wrinkle formation by supporting the skin’s natural DNA repair capacity. In a clinical study, topical application of acetyl hexapeptide-51 provided 13.7% more support for DNA integrity than controls, and this effect was observed within just 6 hours.
The effective peptide known as acetyl tetrapeptide-2 has been shown to rejuvenate facial skin, improve skin tone and texture—and help defend against the visible signs of skin ageing. In a clinical study, volunteers applied acetyl tetrapeptide-2 to their faces for 55 days. In this time, it was demonstrated that the visible appearance of sagging facial skin was decreased by 9.5% and the apparent area of visible sagging was decreased by 23.2%.
Researchers demonstrated this peptide decreased the appearance of fine wrinkles by 20% and coarse wrinkles by 28%—and these results were observed within 15 minutes. Daily application of this unique formulation of three nourishing anti-ageing peptides has been established in human studies to substantially reverse the appearance of ageing and damaged skin.
