Five Best with Matrixyl 2018

October 29, 2018 Reviewed by Marta 0 Comments

Over the past decade Matrixyl has grown to be a family of designer peptides and they are so reliably effective that they should be on everyone’s radar. Matrixyl was the first in what became a series of anti-aging actives created by a company called Sederma. Then came Matrixyl 3000, based on two peptides: a palmitoyl tripeptide and a palmitoyl tetrapeptide. More recently, Matrixyl Synthe’6 was launched. It stimulates six major constituents of the skin matrix and the dermal-epidermal junction, including collagen and hyaluronic acid. More than two years have gone by since I did a Five Best with Matrixyl and with some new serums in our community curated selection, it is time for a 2018 update.

  • MitoQ Active Protection Daily Defense Cream

    For those looking for a moisturizer with impressive anti-aging ingredients. MitoQ is an active form of the well-known antioxidant, ubiquinone. It goes deep inside the mitochondria to power, restructure and regenerate skin cells. Matrixyl synthe‘6 stimulates six major constituents of the skin matrix and the dermal-epidermal junction, filling in wrinkles from the inside. Other actives include niacinamide, which reduces oxidative stress, anti-inflammatory chamomile CO2 and regenerating pomegranate CO2.

  • Sciote Omni Phyto-Cell Serum

    Matrixyl 3000 is by far the dominant active in this serum. It is backed up by a proprietary Peptide Complex Blend of amino acids to vigorously hydrate the skin matrix to firm and strengthen the skin. These are blended with phyto stem cells to regenerate skin stem cells. Scote's serum is a great choice for those who prefer natural formulas. Community members give it five stars and are repeat buyers.

  • Your Best Face Correct

    This “be-all and end-all” of eye creams" has a powerful mix of age-defying peptides, including Uplevity, Matrixyl synthe'6, and Eyeseryl, work to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, lift sagging lids, relieve puffy skin, and erase dark circles. Deservedly, a community favorite for many years.

  • BRAD Biophotonic Ultra Elastin Lift Active Sculpting Ferment

    This wonderfully minimalist formula is all about wrinkle reduction. Peptides that reduce wrinkles and boost collagen take center stage Snap-8 is neuropeptide, a muscle contraction inhibitor that reduces the depth of wrinkles by inhibiting expression lines. Another peptide, acetyl hexapeptide-3 performs a similar function. Matrixyl 3000 is the result of combining two peptides that boost collagen and elastin. Vitamin C - a precursor to collagen production - rounds out the formula.

  • Medik8 Firewall

    Medik8 Firewall is also one of our Five Best with copper peptides, a wound healer and collagen booster. This serum with it innovative dual barrel dispenser also features Matrixyl 3000, the free radical scavenger Lipochroman-6, and the antioxidant niacinamide.This is a good serum for firming skin.
