Myristoyl hexapeptide-16 is categorized as protein stimulating peptide. It enhances the production of skin protein called keratin. Keratin is the basic skin protein that makes the key structure of skin, nails, and hair. It forms an outer layer of skin and plays a major role in the protection of under layers of the skin.
Myristoyl hexapeptide-16 is a multifunctional peptide that is most commonly found in eyelash serums but has also found its way into hair, beard, fingernail, and skin care products. Its keratin-stimulating properties can help reduce TEWL and strengthen skin, making it excellent for products designed for anti-aging and increasing the thickness of skin. These same properties can be used to help keep hair, eyelashes, and beards firmly rooted. The result is a fuller beard, longer lashes, and reduced hair loss.
- Significantly improves the look of eyelashes, making them appear longer, thicker, and fortified.
- Reduces TEWL (Trans Epidermal Water Loss)
- Combats thin skin caused by aging and scars
- Great for finger nail strengthening products
- Combine with Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 for the best results in applications for eyelashes, hair, & beards.
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.
