Resulting in the progress made in the field of Biotechnology, these ingredients are used as active ingredients in cosmetic products. When these peptides reach the tissue they take part in the communication between cells and may generate specific biochemical signals for processes such as collagen production and tissue repair.
The bio mimetic peptides used in the New Collagen series are:
MatrixylTM or micro-collagen® (palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 ), this peptide boosts the synthesis of dermis components: collagen type I collagen type IV and ground substance components (glycosaminoglycans). As demonstrated in tissue cultures, skin biopsies and in clinical tests, this peptide restores the structure of the dermis, increases the thickness of the skin and minimizes wrinkles.
DERMAXYLTM (Palmitoyl Oligopeptide), clinical test showed considerable improvement in wrinkles depth, volume and density.
These peptides together with other active ingredients make this series a first class modern anti-aging series.
