Palmitoyl tripeptide-1 (Pal-GHK) & Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3/7 (Pal-GQPR)
Matrixyl™ 3000 is an anti-aging product from Sederma. Matrikine ™ is the term used for fragmented matrix peptides whom are able to regulate cell activity.
Matrixyl™ 3000 contains two matrikine peptides, Pal-GHK and Pal-GQPR. Acting as messengers of cutaneous restructuring and repair, these two peptides work synergistically to restore and maintain the skins youthful appearance. As messenger molecules, matrikines™ are capable of regulating cell activities. They interact with specific receptors to activate certain genes involved in the process of extracellular matrix renewal and cell proliferation. With age these mechanisms become progressively weaker. Matrixyl™ 3000 is indicated for anti-aging products and wrinkle treatment products such as gels, serums, lotions and creams.
Caution: Do not apply this product directly onto your skin. Add at the end of the emulsion production, at cooling stage, below 40 °C.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is a synthetic peptide comprised of four amino acids that is used in beauty products and cosmetics to suppress the production of excess interleukins, the chemical messengers which trigger the body’s acute inflammatory response. This can lead to glycation damage, or the process by which glucose links with proteins and causes them to bind together, stiffening tissues. This negatively affects the skin's support system, comprised of collagen, elastin and other proteins, and leads to wrinkles, sagging, and uneven skin tone. this has multiple efficacy on anti aging, promoting anti-wrinkle effect
Safety Measures/Side Effects:
There are very few independent studies available on Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7. Under its previous name, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, the EWG found it to be 100% safe for use in cosmetics and beauty products.
