Ingredient in Anti-ageing cream
Women all over the world can stop worrying about lines that may appear on their face after a certain age. Scientists have now confirmed that Anti-ageing creams really do work.
Scientists are claiming that after extensive experimentation they have found that one ingredient used in anti-ageing creams really does have the potential to reverse the effects of aging in one face.
The secret ingredient that was discovered in known as Matrixyl. Matrixly helps multiply the production of collagen, which is an anti-wrinkle protein, produces by our bodies that help the skin look youthful and plump.
What even more exciting is that this magic ingredient is found in a number of high-end face cream brands and is available at your local supermarket, pharmacy or beauty store at very reasonable prices?
The experimentation was carried out by Chemist Ian Hamley, whose research focused the use of collagen for wound healing, he carried out his experiments by using Matrixyl on skin cells.
During his experiments, he found that if the substance was used in the right concertation, would certainly increase the production of collagen in once body.
The Reading University professor said: ‘Our research shows that products with Matrixyl will have skin care benefits. Studies like this are very important for the consumer, as cosmetic companies rarely publish their work so that rivals don’t copy their products.’
In addition to being found in a number of high-end face creams, Matrixyl is particular present in Olay’s Regenerist range, as well some a number of lower end brands such as St Ives and Skin Doctors.
There have been other researchers that have questioned the benefits of face creams that have collagen present in them, according to some reports the products cannot penetrate the skin and deliver the desired result. However, Matrixyl is a protein fragment or peptide that stimulated the collagen production from within the skin.
Lisa Haynes, a beauty editor at the Press Association, said: “Anti-ageing creams frequently boast about being packed full of peptides, but aren’t specific as to which one”.
She further added, “Now the secret’s out and there’s some scientific evidence for its collagen-boosting properties, women will be rushing to find out if it’s in their anti-ageing potion.It’s likely that brands with products that do contain Matrixyl will start shouting about it too if the “miracle” peptide becomes the new buzz word in beauty”.
So, now that this has become officially, backed up with scientific proof, make sure when purchasing any face cream or anti aging cream you read the ingredients to make sure that Matrixyl is present in the product.
