Matrixyl 3000 has been hyped as the newest ingredient in achieving youthful skin and eradicating premature signs of aging. It is claimed to be the new and improved version of Matrixyl. However, they differ in chemical composition. Though they both work because of their peptide contents that repairs the skin matrix, they are not the same in composition.
At present, more men and women recognize the importance of fighting skin aging through skin care products. In fact, according to Smart Skin Care, the gross total market for anti-aging products was valued at $249.3 billion in 2012. It is expected to boom by 2018 reaching $345.8 billion.
It contains a combination of the two peptides, palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 which produce a synergy when combined together. Aside from repairing the skin matrix, they are designed to induce synthesis of collagen strains for skin's elasticity and firmness. Thus, youthful and vibrant skin is achieved.
According to a study by the company Sederma, the developer of Matrixyl 3000, the use of this component drastically increased the skin matrix by 2.5 to 3.5 times the normal. Also, the production and synthesis of Type 1 collagen was increased by 258% and increased natural hyaluronic acid by 179%.
Another study by Dr. Lijuan Zhang and Dr. Timothy Falla on cosmeteucals and peptides states that Matrixyl 3000 has beneficial effects on the skin as it reduces inflammation and promotes integrity of the dermal layers. Moreover, according to the Dermatology Review, it has increased effect on the synthesis of collagen types 1, 4, 7 and 17. It also increases the production of Nidogen-1 proteins or entactin, a major component of the basement membrane alongside collagen.
Skin care products especially anti-aging creams contain Matrixyl 3000 in order to battle premature signs of aging such as wrinkles. It utilizes an innovative technology that enables it to fight skin aging.
Naturally acting products are important because they are organic, natural and poses no serious side effects to the body.
