Calvin Klein's foundation with Matrixyl 3000

August 20, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 0 Comments
Foundations that claim they do double duty as anti-agers typically have nothing more than a token touch of vitamin E and/or A. Calvin Klein's CK Infinite Matt Oil-free Foundation ($32) is the real deal: it has the potent antioxidant, Matrixyl 3000.

I believe that this is the first time that I've come across a makeup product that has matrixyl 3000, which is made by combining palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7. Giving another antioxidant boost is green tea.

There is also gotu kola (centella asiatica), a plant grown throughout Asia that, because of its skin healing properties, was traditionally used to treat leprosy. Its abilities is a wound healer and rebuilder of type 1 collagen are documented in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

One would prefer that they'd left out the potentially harmful phenoxyethanol and magnesium aluminum silicate, but, hey, you can't have everything.
