Matrixyl 3000 has been turning heads in the beauty industry thanks to its lasting effectiveness and visible results. This wrinkle-reducing powerhouse is a perfect fit for Kerello’s hydrating and anti-aging face masks. So, what is matrixyl 3000? Read on to find out more.
What is Matrixyl 3000?
Matrixyl 3000 is a made of two proteins known as peptides – specifically palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7. Peptides composed of amino acid “building blocks” attached to a fatty acid. Since fatty acids dissolve in fat, they are able to penetrate the skin better than a substance that dissolves in water.
What does Matrixyl 3000 do for the skin?
Clinical tests of matrixyl 3000 by its manufacturer, Sederma, have shown that it can significantly improve skin tone and elasticity by almost doubling the amount of collagen present in the skin, making it look firmer and plumper.
How does collagen help? Along with its partner elastin, collagen acts as a sort of pillar that props up the top layer of skin. As we get older, our body produces less collagen year on year, and this is what causes our skin to wrinkle.
By kick-starting collagen production, matrixyl 3000 helps to restore firmness to the skin. Clinical trials showed that after two months of use, the amount of skin occupied by wrinkles was reduced by up to 45%.
Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, one of the building blocks of matrixyl 3000, helps to soothe skin irritation and even out some of the discolouration caused by skin damage from sun exposure. And if your skin is sensitive, there’s nothing to worry about – matrixyl 3000 is well-tolerated by all skin types.
How does Kerello use Matrixyl 3000?
Matrixyl 3000 is a powerful active ingredient by itself, but it works even better when partnered with the right ingredients. Kerello’s face mask combines matrixyl 3000 with hyaluronic acid and red quinoa extract.
Hyaluronic acid is the moisturising miracle that’s really made waves in the beauty industry because of its ability to rehydrate dry, aging skin, and even help regulate cell moisture over time. It’s a popular anti-aging treatment because, like matrixyl 3000, it helps to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of even deep wrinkles.
While hyaluronic acid is often found alongside matrixyl 3000, the golden touch here comes from combining them both with red quinoa extract. Red quinoa contains similar peptides to matrixyl, giving you a double boost of collagen stimulation. Together, they also help brighten the skin and reduce the appearance of age spots.
Thanks to Kerello’s liposome technology, all of this goodness can be delivered deep into the dermis where it can do its best work. To top it all off, the bio-cellulose in our mask can deliver twice as much of our serum to your skin as a paper and hydrogel product, packing the equivalent of a two-hour spa treatment into a 15-minute application.
Now you know more about Matrixyl 3000, you can probably see why we’re so excited about how it combines with the other ingredients in Kerello face mask to give you beautiful feeling, youthful skin. So, why not give it a try?
