Argireline Serum 30ml
This serum reduces fine lines and wrinkles and has a "freeze" effect on the skin. Argireline is a very powerful peptide and is known for its prevention and reduction of expression lines and also increasing hydration.
Peptides are short chains of amino acids with very varied and potent properties. Some can transport essential elements into the skin, while others can create important signals to do things like stimulating collagen production or inhibiting neurotransmitters or enzymes.
There is great interest in using many peptides in smart-aging products to help combat wrinkles and uneven skin tone. This serum contains acetyl hexapeptide-8, also known by its trade name Argireline® Acetyl hexapeptide-8 works much like Botox (botulinum neurotoxin) in preventing the muscle from contracting. It can therefore reduce expression lines, as demonstrated in in vivo studies. However, Botox differs in terms of its mechanism and effectiveness.
Argireline (Acetyl Hexapeptide-8): This peptide has an instant smoothing effect on the skin and with long term use can significantly reduce fine lines and add hydration to skin types that need an extra moisture boost.
Glycerin: a natural moisturiser that is also found in our skin, this is a common and safe ingredient that has been around in cosmetics for many years. It works to keep the lipids between our skin happy and healthy resulting in a protected and strong skin barrier.
Saccharide Isomerate: A plant-derived moisturising agent that is similar to a sugar found in the upper part of the skin making the skin barrier stronger and binds to other moisturising ingredients longer.
Panthenol: also called pro-vitamin B5 moisturises the skin as it attracts water and holds onto it. Research has shown that panthenol can help the skin produce skin cell lipids which strengthen and keep the skin barrier healthy.
How to use
Wash your face thoroughly, then apply 3-4 drops of serum to the face and neck.
Massage gently until the serum is fully absorbed. Optional: Finish with a moisturiser of your choosing.
The best effect is achieved by using the product both in the morning and evening.
