What is Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-52?
You will quite often find palmitoyl hexapeptide-52 formulated into an anti-ageing product that also contains other hexapeptides. By teaming these peptides together you will find impressive results in combating signs of ageing to the skin. Palmitoyl hexapeptide-52 reduces the amounts of neurotransmitters to get through the channels of the skin resulting in wrinkles from developing. It is able to do this by preventing the brain from telling your muscles to contract resulting in the same freezing results you find with injectables such as Botox, without having to use invasive techniques or tools. To keep the skin protected it is important to team any product containing this clever ingredient with a daily SPF and serum enriched in humectant ingredients such as hyaluronic acid.
