If you read last week’s Blog Post, you understand the Role of Peptides and why they are indispensable in today’s contemporary anti aging skin care protocols. Now we will outline the part that Matrixyl plays and why it is a major scientific breakthrough with it’s proven ability to regulate and improve cellular activity, including skin repair and renewal via Collagen Boosting.
Did you know? In a clinical research study conducted in 2013, it was found that MatrixylTM can nearly double the protein collagen activity in the skin’s dermal matrix, which is essential in maintaining skin elasticity.
What is Matrixyl and How does it Work?
Chemically, MatrixylTM is Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3 which closely mimicks collagen’s DNA structure and can easily penetrate through the lipidic layers of the skin. Collagen is the very foundation of our skin’s matrix and is gradually lost as we age, causing our skin to thin, sag, wrinkle and hollow, losing the firmness and plumpness of youth. In a word: to Age.
MatrixylTM (a lipopeptide with 16-Carbon aliphatic chain) stimulates the production of new collagen (specifically, collagen type I, III & IV), elastin, glycosaminoglycan, fibronectin, as well as hyaluronic acid that aids in plumping/filling out wrinkles naturally. It also supports the extracellular matrix and accelerates wound healing.
When your skin is nourished daily with topical collagen in the form of MatrixylTM it signals the cell receptors to produce extra collagen, thus increasing dermal firmness.
Why Matrixyl is used as an Anti Aging Skin care ingredient
Anti wrinkle creams and serums with the proper concentration of MatrixylTM can greatly reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines and prevent signs of premature aging . Here are the reasons you should make MatrixylTM containing products part of your Anti Aging Skin Care Regimen:
- Visible results within 2 weeks.
- Boosts Collagen I (skin texture/turgor) by 212%, Collagen III (‘youth collagen’) by 104%, Collagen IV (anchors proteins in the deepest layers of skin) by 327% and HLA (responsible for water retention) by 267%.
- Upon 6 months of usage (twice a day), increases skin thickness by up to 4% and decrease in fold depth by 17%, fold thickness by 37% and skin roughness by 17%.
- Results similar to retinoic acid (Retin-A), but without the side effects of skin irritation and redness.
- Imparts moisture retention (vital for dry skin/ vata dosha individuals) and enhances a healthy glow.
- When combined with certain co-factors, can be an effective treatment for hyperpigmentation, dark spots, rosacea or eczema. These ingredients include kojic acid, hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C and Aloe Vera.. all of which reduce inflammation, skin sensitivity and brighten skin tone.

When should you start using Matrixyl products?
The first signs of aging generally begin in the early 30s and this is the optimal time to start investing in quality anti-aging skin care. The 30s and 40s bring with them crows feet, lines and sagging of the eyelids where the skin is the thinnest, as well as frown lines, marionette lines from nose to mouth and even lines around the lips in individuals with Vata type skin. The problem is exacerbated as collagen levels diminish into the 50’s, 60’s and beyond. You may believe there is no such thing as “Hope in a Jar” but as modern science progresses we know there are real solutions to help you reverse the process topically. Our Bioscience Peptide Complex is in our opinion, the most advanced combination of Leading Edge Peptide Science, and the Age Old Wisdom of Organic Ayurvedic Medicine.
