Questions & Answers
What is meant by lipo-peptides?
Lipo is this context means that they are soluble in oil, which means we’ve been able to create a new, unique product-our facial oil. It provides lots of natural nourishment to your skin whilst it works on the signs of aging. Of all the active ingredients available to chose from in this day and age, peptides from “Matrixyl 3000 lipo™” were handpicked because they give such a beautiful result, are documented as being effective and are kind to the skin-in order for you to notice a difference.
How do peptides work?
Peptides are chains of naturally occuring amino peptides, which among other things stimulate the production of collagen. The lack of collagen is one of the main reasons skin ages, due mainly to a lower level of protein in the skin. Peptides suits all types of skin, as they exist naturally in your body and therefore do not cause irritation or hypersensitivity to the sun, as retinol (Vitamin A) or AHA has been known to do. We use oligo-peptides and tetrapeptide-3 (Matrixyl 300 lipo™) in a maximal dose (3 %) for their good, performance-based effects. A french study shows that the combination of oligo-peptides and tetrapeptide-3 have a good effect on your skin and diminishes the depth of wrinkles by 45% after only 2 months of use. In the study, which is a randomised, double-blind study, the participants had to make an estimate of the treatment themselves. The study included a full clinical assessment, a photographic assessment and a laser profilometry, which showed the depth of the skin. It has been recommended to start using peptides as a preventative measure at the age of 30, or when you begin to see the first signs of aging such as wrinkles.
- Peptides stimulate and effectively increase the skins own production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which means the skin repairs itself.
- Peptides give you a firmer skin and diminish the depth of wrinkles.
- Peptides are suitable even to sensitive skin.
