Matrixyl 3000 combines two active ingredients: palmitoyl oligopeptide (Pal-GHK) and palmitoyl tretrapeptide-7. Pal-GHK consists of three amino acids and penetrates the skin deeply. The peptide GHK stimulates collagen production. When there is collagen degradation, the synthesis of collagen is triggered. The end result is wrinkle reduction and skin firming.
Another interesting point about GHK is that it is part of a copper peptide (Cu-GHK), which activates skin remodeling and reduces scarring. Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 is a chain of four amino acids and is a fatty acid which enhances the peptide’s oil solubility. It reduces inflammation mediators and stimulates skin replenishment.
The real magic of Matrixyl 3000 is in its synergy. The two peptides together has been proven to work better together. Each peptide enhances the effect of the other.
In 2013, researchers at the University of Reading found that Matrixyl 3000 doubled the amount of protein collagen needed for skin elasticity in both women and men. Other human studies have proven that Matrixyl 3000 has beneficial effects after two months of daily application, including:
- Reduction in main wrinkle depth by 18 percent
- Reduction in roughness by 14 percent
- Decrease in deep wrinkle density by 37 percent
- Increase in skin tone by 15 percent
Unlike Botox treatments, Matrixyl 3000 is a long-term skin care system that repairs DNA and boosts collage production. As a matter of fact, Matrixyl 3000 is the first anti-aging ingredient based on matrikine peptide technology.
In both ex vivo and in vitro studies, Matrixyl has been demonstrated to repair skin, reduce wrinkles, improve skin tone and enhance elasticity. It’s often used a major wrinkle fighting ingredient as an alternative for retin A. Plus, Matarixyl 3000 is non-greasy, dries fast and is natural.
It’s an excellent product to have in your anti-aging skin arsenal. Reap the power of this dual anti-aging skin care ingredient.
