The last thing you want going into summer is last year’s sunspots. Thankfully, there is AminoGenesis Photolagen AGF, a serum formulated with seventeen amino acids, a high concentration of palmitoyl pentapeptide-4, and tripeptide-33.
Together these agents fight together to create a one-two-three punch against fine lines and wrinkles, skin roughness, and skin laxity.
Palmitoyl pentapeptide: Best for fine lines and wrinkles
In a 2005 study in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 was proven to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Additional studies have also shown that palmitoyl pentapeptide increases skin firmness over time (Cosmeceutical Peptides, 2007).
Palmitoyl pentapeptide has also been found to result in an increased production of skin-firming collagen and elastin, as well as another protein that is important for your skin’s framework known as fibronectin.
All in all, palmitoyl pentapeptide is a superb anti-aging ingredient. If you must try a single peptide, make it this one!
Tripeptide-33: A potent antioxidant that may prevent photoaging
A hard-to-find ingredient, the ever-evasive tripeptide-33 has been suggested in studies to take down free radicals in the skin (International Journal of Cosmetic Science, 2013).
A major component behind the skin care ingredient complex Preventhelia™ , tripeptide-33 has been suggested by manufacturer studies to additionally prevent signs of photoaging (Monaster.AU), which makes sense for a free radical-scavenging antioxidant powerhouse.
All in all, tripeptide-33 makes a great addition to AminoGenesis Photolagen-AGF.
Amino Acids: The Secret to It All
With names like tyrosine, alanine, methionine, and aspartic acid, the twenty amino acids aren’t really acids at all, but the building blocks of protein in all of your cells — including your skin cells.
When you apply amino acids to the skin, they have been shown in multiple studies to have significant effects, ranging from antioxidant protection (Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology, 1999), to boosted UV protection (Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology, 1999), to enhanced tissue repair (Journal of Clinical Investigation, 1993), to simply hydrating the skin (Conditioning Agents for Hair and Skin[book], 1999).
AminoGenesis Photolagen AGF ($89.00) is a superb anti-aging product for everything from fine lines and wrinkles to skin sagging and dryness. We highly recommend it!
