The alphabeth of cosmetics starts with A
A for Argireline®. Certainly heard it before, right?
Argireline® is an insider tip against signs of skin aging such as facial wrinkles. Here you can find out everything about the power active ingredient.
Argireline® is the simpler term for acetylhexapeptide-3 or acetylhexapeptide-8, a peptide developed based on Nobel Prize winning research by scientist Dr. Rodbell. The active ingredient was developed by Lipotech in Spain and has been available since 2001, after more than 10 years of research. The Argireline content recommended by Lipotec is max. 10%.
What exactly is a peptide? A peptide is an organic chemical compound which contains peptide bonds between the individual amino acids. Argireline® uses 6 amino acids, which are naturally formed in the body and absorbed in small amounts through food.
What does Argireline® do? The active ingredient reduces the amount of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which causes muscles to contract. These muscle contractions can cause deep wrinkles. By reducing the neurotransmitter, Argireline® can relax muscles and effectively reduce wrinkles. Thus Argireline® has a similar effect as Botox (Botulinum Toxin).
The difference with Botox is that it doesn’t paralyze the face:
1. The active ingredient is only applied to the upper layer of the skin and does not require a needle
2. The anti-wrinkle peptide blocks about 2/3 of the neurotransmitter, allowing the facial muscles to remain active
The active ingredient does not turn your face into a mimicless mask, but gives a wrinkle-reduced, young and relaxed expression. The skin looks younger and smoother – without any injections. When using 10% Argireline®, the depth of wrinkles can be reduced by about 27% within 15 days and this has even been scientifically proven!
Does the active ingredient have certifications?
It is a natural cosmetic product according to the ISO standard 16128. Argireline® is also halal-certified. The application is non-invasive and non-toxic.
