We could all do with a bargain and I just stumbled across Derma e's Peptide Plus Wrinkle Reverse Serum on for the bargain price of $25.48 (the usual price is $43.50). It is well worth checking out because it has several things going for it: a couple of good peptides, plenty of organic botanicals, antioxidants and only one ingredient (phenoxyethanol) that one would prefer to avoid.

The peptides are Argireline, the neuropeptide that prevents facial muscles from contracting and increasing expression wrinkles and matrixyl (this is not the more powerful matrixyl 3000, but its still very good at stimulating collagen synthesis and skin repair). As well organic green tea (an antioxidant) and vitamin C, there is pinus pinaster (French maritime pine), which is full of proanthocyanidins. These flavenoids are the principal polyphenols in red wine, responsible for its antioxidant properties. There are studies that show that proanthocyanidins' antioxidant capabilities are 20 times more powerful than vitamin C and 50 times more than vitamin E.

I also like the inclusion of leucine, an amino acid that our bodies cannot synthesize. It is worth finding sources of it though, because it slows down the degradation of muscle tissue. Tyrosines are another amino acid and they are used by cells to synthesize proteins. The other amino acid here, alanine, is less interesting. It doesn't appear to have much of a therapeutic role and it primarily functions as a water binding agent.


Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil (Certified Organic By Quality Assurance International, Usda or Guaranteed Organic Certification Agency), Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (Argireline), Palmitoyl Pentapepetide-4 (Matrixyl), Allantoin,Panthenol, Pinus Pinaster (Pycnogenol) Bark Extract, Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract (Certified Organic By Quality Assurance International, Usda or Guaranteed Organic Certification Agency), Ascorbyl Palmitate (C-ester), Glyceryl Stearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Leucine, Tyrosine, Alanine, Xanthan Gum, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Vp Copolymer (Aristoflex), Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Natural Fragrance.

Quick translation: Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Vp Copolymer (Aristoflex) is a polymer thickener that doesn't have any hydrocarbon or solvents.

    <p>What about the cream version of this? <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p>

    <p>Also has phenoxyethanol, but it looks like the good stuff (argieline and matrixyl are bumped up a little in the list.</p>

    <p>I also hear REALLY good things about the DMAE/Ester-C cream:<br />
    <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a></p>

    <p>There is also an accompanying serum... I'd love it if you could review those sometime, since I tried Perricone products with similar ingredients that didn't do much. Also I'm timid to order skincare I've never tried from Amazon, and I can't find this line in any store near me.</p>
