What is Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-19?

Areas of concern, such as fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and laughter lines are significantly reduced in no more than 4 weeks.

The anti-ageing effects are achieved by palmitoyl hexapeptide-19 by relaxing muscles and preventing the release of acetylcholine resulting in a younger looking skin. These anti-ageing results are accomplished with non-evasive application making this ingredient a lot more affordable to include into skincare formulations, but don’t let this trick you into thinking it is not an effective ingredient, many studies have shown a reduction in wrinkles by 38% in less than 30 days!
