Syn-ake - A peptide complex from Pentapharm, a cosmetics ingredients specialist with 50 years experience in the industry. SYN®-AKE is a new anti wrinkle active compound based on a synthetic tripeptide that mimics the effect of waglerin 1, a peptide that is found in the venom of the Temple Viper.
The effectiveness of SYN-AKE is astounding: it has excellent skin smoothing properties and reduces the depth of facial wrinkles in just a few days. A study involving 45 volunteers confirmed these results. During this test, the use of SYN-AKE twice daily, reduced forehead wrinkles, by up to 52% in just 28 days.
In comparative tests Syn-ake at a 4% concentration outperformed a 10% concentration of Argireline in wrinkle reduction. So, if Syn-ake is so much better than Argireline, why do we continue to sell Argireline based products? Primarily because Syn-ake and Argireline are each better suited to different areas of the complexion. Syn-ake seems to be more effective on deeper lines especially those on the forehead while Argireline seems better suited to finer lines such as those around the eyes and upper lip. Its also about customer choice and cost - in our opinion Argireline is a great product and does its job very well. Syn-ake may be more effective overall but it is certainly a great deal more expensive. Some customers will prefer Argireline to Syn-ake. Everyone's skin biology is different and what works wonderfully for one might not be as effective for another. So we expect some customers to remain committed to our Argireline serum whilst others will prefer the Synaderm serum.
Matrixyl 3000 - The best known collagen boosting peptide featuring in many expensive over the counter creams and serums. Matrixyl 3000 is a combination of matrikines including Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide – 7, Matrixyl 3000® promotes collagen production while stimulating fibroblast cells (the cells that manufacture collagen) in the skin, enabling them to significantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Although fibroblasts never completely lose their ability to create more collagen, the levels dwindle with age and the skin dries out and wrinkles.
In clinical trials Matrixyl® 3000 achieved:
33% decrease in wrinkle density
23% decrease in the volume of wrinkles
20% decrease in the depth of wrinkles
Hyaluronic Acid - natures most powerful skin hydrating agent. Therefore skin will be better hydrated giving a pronounced plumping effect reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Directions: Use as often as desired but we recommend daily use. Apply to areas of concern (forehead, laughter lines etc) rather than the whole complexion
