Delays againg of skin structural proteins

This encapsulated tetrapeptide was designed to slow the aging of the skin caused by the glycation of protein structure.

Mechanism of action

This peptide, which is encapsulated in a delivery system coated with lysine, protects protein from glycation. It inhibits the Maillard reaction and binds the liposomes to the skin, releasing full efficacy leading to greater elasticity and flexibility.

Cosmetic Benefits
