What is Tripeptide-1?

Found in famous Matrixyl 3000 and Copper-Tripeptide-1 matrix, this ingredient can deliver highly impressive skin results. It is able to repair the tissue damage that creates a breakdown in collagen production which occurs due to ageing and also for those who have a more acne-prone skin type. This damage can usually look like uneven skin texture with acne scarring as well as fine lines and wrinkles combined with skin beginning to sag. This is often a result in the face being exposed to several factors such as genetics, hormonal changes, pollution, UV rays and other environmental skin stresses. The tripeptide-1 is able to deliver results when used singularly as well as teamed in matrix or other skincare formulations.

Side effects of Tripeptide-1

None if the skin is happy for you to include this ingredient in your daily skincare routine.
