Matrixyl 3000, developed by the Sederma Corporation, is made up of the matrikines, peptides, Pal-GHK (palmitoyl oligopeptide) and Pal-GQPR (palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7). The pair work together as antioxidants to fight the damaging signs of aging on the skin. Together they stimulate the matrix molecules (collagens and fibronectin) to enable Matrixyl 3000 reduce wrinkles. It is made into a whitish gel with a pH of 4.0-6.0. It has a 30% water content.
Pal-GHK consists of a short chain of three amino acids that are connected to palmitic acid, a fatty acid that improves the chain’s oil solubility and skin penetration. It is a type of collagen molecule that can point out any increased decline of the skin matrix. The GHK then can stimulate the synthesis of new collagen synthesis.
The other component of Matrixyl 3000, Pal-GQPR, is a short chain of four amino acids that are also connected to palmitic acid. This, as stated above, is a fatty acid that improves the substance’s skin penetration. It works by reducing interleukin-6 production, keratinocytes and fibroblasts. These can promote inflammation, degrading the skin matrix, leading to wrinkles and sagging. Pal-GQPR can possibly help slow the decline of the skin matrix and stimulate new cells.
The addition of Matrixyl 3000 to a cosmetic skin care product can reduce wrinkles, improve the skin’s elasticity and tone. As an anti-wrinkle ingredient, Matrixyl works on reducing the density and volume of wrinkles, and aids in reduces the sagging of skin, such as the sagging of neck and facial skin, in particular. Studies have shown Matrixyl 3000 to reduce wrinkle density by 33%, lessen wrinkle volume by 23% and decrease wrinkle depth by 20%.
Matrixyl 3000 can help to rejuvenate the skin’s dermal area, lessening the appearance of wrinkles. This ingredient can also help stimulate collagen production. The stimulation of collagen production aids in producing a more even and luminous skin tone and also increases the thickness of the skin’s outer layer. The creams formulated with Matrixyl 3000 penetrate deeply into the skin’s layer where it can retain moisture it needs.
The ingredient aids in fighting free radicals, evening out skin tone, increasing skin’s thickness, keeping in moisture, and letting the skin feel more firm and healthy. Some cosmetic skin products include, in addition to Matrixyl 3000, other antioxidants such as copper peptides, marine collagen, grape, tea and/or algae.
Advantages of Matrixyl 3000:
Matrixyl 3000 contains two active ingredients, increasing its benefits and activity on the skin.
This ingredient can decrease the depth, volume and density of wrinkles, and uplift sagging skin and overall skin tone.
It is free of any side effects during short-term use.
