Recently, JN Beauty Solutions™ has received several requests, questions, and inquiries regarding the formulation and effectiveness of our Anti-Aging Serum and its wrinkle-reducing properties with the premium peptide Matrixyl®3000. We would like to publicly address these inquiries to provide more information to our distributors and skincare enthusiasts.
The Difference between Matrixyl and Matrixyl®3000
In the current market, you often hear about and come across two ingredients used in anti-aging skincare products, known for their ability to boost collagen and elastin production: Matrixyl and Matrixyl®3000. Let’s differentiate between these two:
Matrixyl and Matrixyl®3000 are two forms of the same anti-aging ingredient, but they have some differences:
- Peptide structure: Matrixyl is a single peptide, while Matrixyl®3000 is a peptide blend. Matrixyl®3000 consists of Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7.
- Effects: Matrixyl is known for stimulating collagen production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging. Matrixyl®3000 has similar effects to Matrixyl but can also support stronger skin restoration and restructuring.
- Efficacy: Although both are effective in improving skin structure and elasticity, Matrixyl 3000 is believed to be more potent and faster-acting. Studies have shown that using Matrixyl®3000 twice daily for two months can reduce the depth of wrinkles by 45%.
In summary, Matrixyl is a single peptide, whereas Matrixyl®3000 is a peptide blend. Matrixyl®3000 can provide stronger efficacy in improving wrinkles and skin elasticity.
What is Matrixyl®3000?
Matrixyl®3000 is a peptide synthesized from two peptides. The combined peptides are Palmitoyl-Tetrapeptide-7 and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1. Scientific research has revealed that this ingredient can quickly reduce wrinkles, roughness, unevenness, and improve skin tone when used in combination and according to the instructions.
The key point is why you need to combine these two amino acids and why you can’t use them separately. Matrixyl®3000 was developed when these amino acids work together in a synergistic reaction, significantly enhancing their impact on the skin. It mimics the collagen degradation cycle in the skin, which results in increased collagen production in the epidermal layer.
In 2013, the University of Reading conducted the most valuable scientific research on the use of Matrixyl®3000 components in enhancing skin health. Professor Hamley, the lead researcher, estimated that the use of peptides would double the necessary amount of collagen protein to keep the skin youthful and soft.
Matrixyl®3000 is a popular peptide used in anti-aging skincare products. It is renowned for its restorative properties and its ability to promote skin repair. Matrixyl®3000 is a relatively rare ingredient found in high-end anti-aging creams and serums, often featured in luxury brands’ products.
Benefits of Matrixyl®3000
Matrixyl®3000 is a peptide-based ingredient that effectively supports overall skin health and reduces signs of aging, including wrinkles and fine lines. This ingredient is also an excellent choice for individuals with sensitive skin. Matrixyl®3000 contains matrikines, which are peptides that enhance the repair and restructuring processes of the skin. This serum contains two types of matrikines, Pal-GHK and Pal-GQPR, both of which aid in collagen and elastin restoration.
Another benefit of using Matrixyl®3000 in skincare is its ability to prevent and reverse the process of glycation, which is one of the main causes of skin aging. Glycation contributes to premature aging and reduces the ability of collagen to keep the skin firm.
You can use certain ingredients in skincare products to counteract the glycation process, and Matrixyl®3000 is always the best choice. It promotes the formation of collagen and elastin, reduces wrinkles, and makes the skin look less saggy. Additionally, it improves the firmness of the skin and its ability to retain moisture. However, before delving into the benefits of Matrixyl®3000, let’s learn more about the peptides it contains.
You can delve deeper into peptides from previous articles by JN Beauty Solutions™. Here, we provide a quick summary of peptides as follows:
Peptides are small protein fragments formed when amino acids are combined. For example, when two amino acids are linked together, they form a dipeptide; three amino acids in a chain are called a tripeptide, and so on. However, all proteins are formed by amino acids joining together, so what is the difference between peptides and proteins, and why are peptides good for our skin?
Although both peptides and proteins are formed from amino acids, peptides are smaller than proteins. Peptides contain 2 to 50 amino acids, while proteins are composed of 50 or more amino acids. Peptides can be further divided into oligopeptides, which are formed from 2 to 20 amino acids, and polypeptides, which contain multiple amino acids (20 to 50). In contrast, proteins are formed from one or more polypeptides combined together. Due to their smaller size, peptides can bypass cell barriers and be absorbed by our tissues.
Benefits of Peptides for our skin:
Peptides are naturally produced in our body by using proteins in the extracellular matrix (ECM) such as collagen, elastin, and fibronectin, as well as precursor proteins called antimicrobial peptides (AMP). Peptides are formed through the process of degradation (breakdown) of a portion of ECM proteins, known as Matrikines. Matrikines help maintain cellular balance by supporting cell signaling.
Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 is the main peptide that makes Matrixyl®3000 famous. It is a small peptide composed of three amino acids with the glycine-histidine-lysine (GHK) amino acid sequence. GHK is linked to palmitic acid (in other words, a fatty acid), which enhances the oil solubility of the peptide and its ability to penetrate the skin.
GHK is a fragment of collagen type I, which is the most important collagen-based peptide. Here’s how it works: Collagen in the skin naturally breaks down, creating peptide segments that signal the skin to produce new collagen molecules. But when you apply peptide fragments like GHK to the skin, they make it mistakenly believe that the collagen in your skin has been degraded, and the skin should start working to produce more collagen. This explains why Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 can enhance collagen production in the skin, resulting in more collagen and fewer wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Meanwhile, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 helps reduce redness and inflammation in the skin. It also aids in the stimulation of collagen and helps relax the muscles to minimize wrinkles, and most importantly, it acts as a powerful catalyst to support the stronger production of collagen alongside Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1.
Matrixyl®3000 combines Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 to form a powerful duo that promotes a youthful appearance for the skin. This makes Matrixyl®3000 one of the strongest synthetic peptides used in skincare.
The positive effects of this skincare ingredient have also been scientifically proven. For example, a study found that using Matrixyl®3000 twice daily for 2 months significantly reduced deep wrinkles, improved elasticity, and produced a noticeable lifting effect. Matrixyl®3000 has also been demonstrated to be effective for male skin.
What does Matrixyl®3000 do for the skin?
Matrixyl®3000 helps the skin retain moisture, resulting in a brighter and radiant complexion. Matrixyl®3000 is used in skincare products for its anti-aging properties as it stimulates collagen production and reduces the visibility of aging signs.
Is Matrixyl®3000 harmful to the skin?
No, Matrixyl®3000 is not only safe for the skin but also one of the most celebrated ingredients in anti-aging skincare. It has been demonstrated to be non-irritating and free from serious side effects, making it suitable for most skin types, including sensitive skin. However, as with any skincare product, if you have sensitive skin or any other skin concerns, it is recommended to patch test a small area before applying the product to your entire face.
How long does it take to see results?
The time required for Matrixyl®3000 to show results can vary depending on the individual and usage. Matrixyl®3000 works by tricking our skin into believing there is not enough collagen, thus accelerating the production of this vital structural protein. It may take some time to notice the effects, but typically, after about 1 week of using a product containing Matrixyl®3000, you will see improvements in the appearance and elasticity of your skin. Studies have shown that using Matrixyl®3000 twice daily for 2 months reduced the area of deep wrinkles by 45%. If properly combined with Hyaluronic Acid and applied using appropriate technology, the effectiveness can be significantly enhanced. (Stay tuned for our new product)
Is Matrixyl®3000better than Hyaluronic Acid?
Both hyaluronic acid and Matrixyl®3000 are effective skincare ingredients, but they provide different benefits. While hyaluronic acid reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by providing hydration to the skin, Matrixyl®3000 stimulates collagen production and improves skin elasticity. This results in firmer skin and reduced signs of aging. You can also use products that contain both Matrixyl®3000 and Hyaluronic Acid, as both ingredients are potent when used individually and even more effective when combined.
What is the best combination for Matrixyl®3000?
If you are seeking rapid and effective rejuvenation, wrinkle reduction, and plumpness, the best combination is Matrixyl®3000 and Hyaluronic Acid serum. This is the perfect formula that JN Beauty Solutions™ is eagerly researching to launch the upgraded version of their upcoming product, JNBS PURE Hyaluronic Acid.
You should avoid using Matrixyl®3000 in combination with:
Lactic Acid (AHA) and Salicylic Acid (BHA) + Matrixyl: Since Lactic Acid is a skin exfoliant similar to Salicylic Acid, it is recommended to avoid using them together. Matrixyl is akin to a milder version of Retinol and does not combine well with acids, thus it is advised not to combine it with Lactic Acidor Salicylic Acid.
What is the appropriate concentration of Matrixyl®3000?
Matrixyl®3000™ is a potent anti-aging peptide formulated at an optimal concentration of 8% to achieve maximum effectiveness.
