Functions:

Acetyl tetrapeptide-2 is most commonly used as a skin conditioner, by soothing and nourishing the skin through similar mechanisms as other peptides. It is done by compensating for hormone loss in the skin, especially collagen, providing somewhat of a plumping effect to the skin.

It has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties according to the Cosmetics Database. There have previously been claims that the substance can aid in the treatment of alopecia as part of the Neopeptide product, however by digging a little deeper into the research on the subject we have no reason to believe that acetyl tetrapeptide-2 actively encourages hair growth.

Safety Measures/Side Effects:

Due to the nature of peptides and the role they play in the composition of proteins they are generally considered non-hazardous based upton data from the Cosmetic Ingredient Review.

Recommended Products with Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2:

Snowberry Smoothing Eye Serum ($53), Taun Facial Repair Formula ($79 in the shop).

As much as possible, products in the Truth In Aging shop are chosen for their safety profile as well as effectiveness.
