What is Matrixyl 3000?

Matrixyl 3000 may sound like a brand of monster truck, but it's actually a key ingredient in skincare products that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles over time.

Matrixyl 3000 can be classified as a long-term anti-wrinkle system. A long-term system is one that attempts to boost collagen production, increasing in efficacy the longer the system is used.

Eye CreamIn short, Matrixyl is a peptide that specifically stimulates collagen synthesis and skin repair. 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. They are supposed work synergistically to mimic the appearance of this broken down collagen, causing your skin to react by producing more collagen, as well as elastin. In addition, these peptides help your cells resist the damaging effects of UV radiation, can strengthen your skin's protective membranes and barriers, and promote the production of collagen.

In early 2013 University of Reading researchers found that Matrixyl can nearly double the amount of the protein collagen needed to give skin its elasticity.

Sano Naturals now offers an easy way to incorporate Matrixyl 3000 into your beauty routine through our new Anti Oxidant Eye Cream. This cream is formulated with both Matrixyl 3000 and Retinol, to provide a 1-2 punch against aging. Although it makes an excellent eye cream, this anti oxidant packed, moisture rich lotion can be used all over the face. Find out more here on Amazon.
