I wasn't sure where to post this, but since I am including it for reference purposes I decided this was the right place.  This product is fairly new.  It contains dermaxyl and matrixyl (both from Sederma).  The evaluation of the "clinically proven results" gives good info on how statements are made and what they really mean (i.e., 98% does not mean "all gone").

 

Hannah, maybe you can shed some light on all these different peptides fo us.

 

DERMAXYLTM (Palmitoyl Oligopeptide) rehydrates the skin by improving the ceramide activity in the skin, assisting in the prevention of DNA damage and the reduction of sun damaged cells.  It improves the production of collagen and elastin, which helps “plump” up the skin thereby reducing the depth of wrinkles and fine lines and giving the skin a smoother appearance. DermaxylTM is a combination of six natural amino acids which are found in the body and therefore not likely to cause any allergic reactions.

The study:

If anyone can't open these sites let me know.  I copied the info just in case.

Dermaxyl contains the same synthetic peptide that Matrixyl but instead of coming in a liquid solvent it comes in an almost solid base that looks like shea butter. I can look up what the base is but, because we are only interested in actives, it does not really matters to us. You can use our palmitoyl pentapeptide and mix it with a thick base like shea butter. It will not dissolve but the very solid base will keep it dispersed.

Funny, my mother-in-law just got a mailer on a free offer for this stuff, and wondered if I might like to try it.  She has been so amazed with the look of my face, and how the years have seemed to fade away, she believed that they could give me another "jolt" and remove another 10 years!

 

I love SA, and promptly said, "No."  I have seen this product (the 3000) on another website, pure, and they sell to wholesalers.

Isn't there a difference between palmitoyl PENTAPEPTIDE and OLIGOPEPTIDE (sounds maybe like 5 vs 8)?

No. "oligo" means a few "penta" means five. The one in Dermaxyl is the
penta. Also remember that if a penta is a perfect signal, manufacturers may
try to shorten it to save money (the longer the peptide the more expensive
it is) and get the novelty factor.

once again i read 'somewhere' (lol again!) that dermaxyl is the form of matrixyl that is used in cosmetics/makeup as opposed to the matrixyl that is used in skincare...perhaps because of it's texture it is preferable over the other form?

Dermaxyl is the same peptide in an almost solid base (very thick cream), rather than in aqueous solution.

We sell our peptides in a very concentrated solution, to give more flexibility to our clients to like to dream new fromulations.
