Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is a small peptide which mimics the human body’s own mechanism to produce collagen.
Peptide is a small molecule which holds amino acids, the building block of skin’s proteins, a major component of skin’s matrix. As your skin’s matrix determines how your skin looks and feels, peptide technology plays a crucial role in anti-ageing skincare.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 increased the collagen synthesis by 119%
The ability of Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 to activate TGF-β is the key in improving skin’s collagen level. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is the first topical TGF-β activator, therefore it is one of the important ingredients in anti-ageing skincare.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 protects collagen and helps prevent collagen degradation
In addition to increasing the collagen synthesis, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 is also deactivating the key enzymes in collagen degradation (MMP1 and 3) and preventing cellular activities that causes inflammation. The ability of Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 to protect collagen and prevent collagen from degradation makes it an ideal anti-ageing ingredient for all skin types and ages.
No side effects.
