What Is It?
Matrixyl 3000 and Matrixyl Synthe’6® are peptides. Peptides are active molecules that send signals to your cells. When collagen breaks down, it forms specific peptides that signal to your skin that it was damaged and needs to make new collagen. Therefore by applying peptides topically, we trick our skin into thinking that it has lost collagen recently and it is time to make more.
Matrixyl 3000 is made from two new peptides that have nothing to do with the palmitoyl-pentapeptide 3 that is in the original Matrixyl. The two new peptides are palmitoyl-tripeptide and palmitoyl-oligopeptide, which are supposed to work synergistically to mimic the appearance of broken down collagen, causing your skin to react by producing more collagen, as well as elastin.
Why We Added It To Our 1A All-Day Mask?
Matrixyl 3000 can nearly double the amount of the protein collagen needed to give skin its elasticity. It boost collagen and elastin production and repairs skin DNA. It also restores skin’s youthful metabolism by stimulating synthesis of Collagen-I, -IV, -VII, -XVII and Nidogen-I proteins.
