Skin Care Benefits of TETRAPEPTIDE-21
As we get older, our skin is going through wear and tear that results in wrinkles and age spots. Although many peptides have been developed for skin care, a cosmetic peptide called TETRAPEPTIDE-21 contains loads of protein that can battle the effects of aging skin.
TETRAPEPTIDE-21 restores the dermal matrix by stimulating the body’s own collagen production and its ability to repair and renew skin. An extensive study was performed to see the effects of TETRAPEPTIDE-21 on the skin.
The following are the skincare benefits of TETRAPEPTIDE-21 derived from the study.
Boosts ECM Proteins
TETRAPEPTIDE-21 contains human extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins which are present on our skin. As we age, ECM proteins are degraded.
TETRAPEPTIDE-21 contains around 30 tetrapeptide motifs which are abundant in different ECM proteins.
TETRAPEPTIDE-21 can be great for the skin by stimulating ECM resynthesis.
Collagen Protein Production
A study was performed to investigate collagen protein expression after application of TETRAPEPTIDE-21. The results showed a significant increase in the amount of secreted collagen protein.
It also found that ECM marker genes were significantly induced after application of TETRAPEPTIDE-21.
This suggests that TETRAPEPTIDE-21 can be powerful in battling the effects of aging.
Improves Skin Elasticity
A study was performed on TETRAPEPTIDE-21’s effect on skin elasticity. After application of it twice a day for 8 weeks, skin volume, skin roughness and skin scaliness was evaluated.
The results were a reduction in skin scaliness and improvement in skin volume. The study also found that increased application of TETRAPEPTIDE-21 can decrease skin roughness.
A study to evaluate the anti-aging effects of TETRAPEPTIDE-21 was conducted. Application of TETRAPEPTIDE-21 occured twice a day for 8 weeks. The results showed effectiveness in reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Progress was visible after the first 4 weeks.
The study also found that TETRAPEPTIDE-21 can significantly boost collagen, hyaluronic acid and fibronectin. These are all great for improving skin elasticity and reducing skin roughness.
TETRAPEPTIDE-21, which is found in the Down To Earth Rejuvenating Peel Off Mask, has highly effective anti-aging effects. It can boost ECM proteins, improve skin elasticity and volume and reduce skin roughness and scaliness.
That link above is great and exactly what we’re looking for. Would love to see more stuff like that.
