Decoding Matrixyl 3000: The What, Why and How!
Matrixyl 3000: Botox in a Bottle?
We are introduced to a new beauty trend every day; the one our favourite social media influencers can’t stop raving about! While most of them aren’t worthy of your time, the new “Botox in a bottle” trend has got us curious. This new needle-free method that claims to reduce fine lines and wipe away age spots right at our homes is indeed intriguing. So, we tapped in our experts to find out the truth.
Botox in a Bottle 101
Essentially, “Botox in a bottle” refers to potent anti-aging ingredients like Matrixyl 3000 and other peptides. These peptides are made into topical formulations that promote youthful, glowing and plump skin. They work to enhance cell turnover and boost collagen production in the skin. The proverbial “Botox in a bottle” is designed to deliver all the goodness without the procedure.
A Deep Dive into Matrixyl 3000
Sedarma, a leader in the formulating and testing potent ingredients for the cosmetic industry, created the first Matrixyl compound. It is formed by mixing two peptides: palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 and palmitoyl tripeptide-1. These two peptides, when applied topically on your skin, blend together perfectly to reduce signs of aging. Continued usage can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and improve skin texture.
The Science of Matrixyl 3000
Professor François-Xavier Maquart along with his researchers published a research paper introducing Matrikine® in 1999. Matrikine refers to short chain proteins or peptides, that are derived from the extracellular matrices surrounding living cells. These peptides function as messenger to other cells. They bind to cell membrane receptors and initiate the repair process within tissues. Further research on Matrikine discovered diverse functions like collagen stimulation and fibronectin synthesis in the skin.
Recent research on Matrixyl has classified it into a range that comprises of active ingredients designed to mimic the natural process of skin regeneration. These biomimetic peptides effectively stimulate the synthesis of essential skin components such as collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. As a result, they have been scientifically proven to offer anti-aging benefits.
