Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is a skincare ingredient that visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines, and wrinkles, & boosts collagen production. It is the first peptide that targets areas prone to developing expression lines. In addition, it relaxes the facial muscles to promote a smoother, less wrinkled look.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, a mimetic of Botox, has been found to be safer than Botox and effective in reducing wrinkles, with efficacies up to 48% upon 4 weeks of twice daily treatment. However, the skin permeation of Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is poor, due to its large molecular weight and hydrophilicity. The optimum molecular weight for skin penetration is said to be around 500 Daltons and Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is 888 Daltons. To solve the issue of penetration without PEG and other questionable penetration-enhancing ingredients, we have encapsulated this peptide in a liposomal format.
Liposomes are the latest nano-scale technology for the encapsulation of cosmetic actives. This technology uses bilayer lipids(fats) to encapsulate active ingredients and protect them until the point of delivery into the target cell. The lipids used are extremely biocompatible with cell walls allowing them to bond to and release the active ingredient directly into the cells. Studies have shown that this method of delivery helps to time release the actives and increase absorption by as much as 7 times. Not only do you need less of the active ingredient to achieve better results, but the steady absorption over time will increase the benefits between applications.
You can add our Liposomal Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 to any skincare product (serum, cream, lotion, or moisturizer) or make a custom anti-aging formula.
