Five Best Serums and Creams with Matrixyl

Matrixyl can double your collagen. It’s finally official, folks. Matrixyl just got independent endorsement from a research team at Reading University. This is big news because until now the only research to support bold anti-aging claims was by the manufacturer. Now scientists have proven that Matrixyl can double collagen, justifying it as a primary weapon in your anti-aging arsenal. There are a ton of great products with Matrixyl and some not so great ones. To help you find the right ones, I’ve selected Truth In Aging’s Five Best with Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000.

Check out all our products featuring Matrixyl & Matrixyl 3000

  • Medik8 Firewall

    Medik8 Firewall ($162 in the shop). When I first reviewed this I wrote: “I am just going to cut straight to the car chase. Medik8 Firewall works. It really works. It really, really works.” As well as Matrixyl 3000, there are other important actives that pack Medik8’s punch. There are tons of skin-repairing ingredients, such as copper, N-acetyl cysteine (helps synthesize gluthiathione, a natural antioxidant), the free-radical-scavenging Lipochroman-6 and resveratrol.

  • Your Best Face Correct

    Your Best Face Correct ($150 in the shop). Your Best Face has been an early convert to Matrixyl 3000 and you’ll also find it in their high-powered face serum, Control. There are other extremely useful peptides in the Correct eye serum. Syn-Hycan may be responsible for the lifting effect of Correct as it was designed to tackle sagging skin. And then there is Tego Pep 4-7, based on the peptide tetrapeptide-17, which is supposed to have collagen, hyaluronic acid and fibronectin-boosting activity.

  • Mad Hippie Exfoliating Serum

    Mad Hippie Exfoliating Serum ($35 in the shop). This little fellow has it all – gentle glycolic exfoliating, Matrixyl 3000 and a decent price point. On the brightening/lightening front, Mad Hippie has also included Gigawhite, which is a complex of six botanicals that are supposed to help fade age spots. Exfoliating Serum also has apple stem cells, vitamin C, white tea, ceramide-3 and melatonin.

  • Arcona Peptide Hydrating Complex

    Arcona Peptide Hydrating Complex ($75 in the shop). Arcona's Peptide Hydrating Complex is a good choice for anyone interested in Matrixyl and especially those prone to dry skin. This twofer (serum and moisturizer in one) has Matrixyl 3000 and a slew of other good things including glycosaminoglycans, which promotes the ability of the collagen and elastin fibers to retain moisture. There’s a touch of retinol and I especially like he inclusion of L-carnosine, an amino acid that may extend the longevity of cells past their Hayflick Limit. Our reviewer, Cecilia, reported that it did a great job of repairing and healing her skin.

  • Osmotics Eye Surgery Under Eye Rejuvenator

    Osmotics Eye Surgery Under Eye Rejuvenator ($53 in the shop). Osmotics formulates for effectiveness and this eye cream majors on Matrixyl 3000 and a peptide that discourages puffyness, acetyl tetrapeptide-5 (also marketed as Eyseril).  There are moisturizing oils and sodium hyaluronate and Osmotics’ signature antioxidant, ergothioneine. Our reviewer, Tina, said it “really is the next best thing to actual eye surgery.”

    can you please list products that contain the original matrixyl only. Original matrixyl is a better product than matrixyl 3000 and the new independant studies support that.. Finding the original matrixyl is difficult.

    Thank you.
