Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7
Palmitoyl oligopeptide has the similar substructure of collagen type I and improves collagen synthesis based on a feedback regulation mechanism. Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7 inhibits the expression of interleukine 6 (IL-6) being responsible for inflammatory processes in the skin.
The peptide conplexes can penetrate into deeper skin layers and activate the skin's natural production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, and reduce inflammation mediated degradation of the extracellular matrix. Thus the complexes can repair the cutaneous damages of age, slow down the skin aging process.
