Products that contain Aldenine

March 24, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 4 Comments
Since I wrote about Osmotics Anti-radical Age Defense and discovered the hard way (I set myself  - and a few other people - off on a copper peptide wild goose chase) that the secret sauce is Aldenine, I have been looking more closely at this tripeptide combined with wheat and soy proteins. If it does all it claims to, then Aldenine is a powerful radical scavenger and a remarkable booster of collagen.

In addition to Osmotics, here is a round-up of some of the products Aldenine can be found in:

I've had this image of Dermaxime Rejuvenating Day Cream in my database for a while as a prod to write about it one of these days. Since Dermaxime, a South African company (this product can be bought in the US) is big on Aldenine, this is the perfect excuse. This is a sophisticated potion that, as well as Aldenine, has vitamin A (retinol), hyaluronic acid, alpha lipoic acid, serilesine (a peptide that is supposed to improve skin elasticity) and a moisturizer called Hydromanil. Dermaxime says they are all in the right therapeutic concentrations. In addition, there is vitamin E and some plant extracts. Unfortunately, it contains a couple of irritants - sodium hydroxide and phenoxythanol. This is a pity, because this is otherwise a very good looking potion.

Peter Thomas Roth Wrinkle Preventer also has a dose of Aldenine. It isn't a million miles apart from Dermaxime. It also has vitamins A and E. It has squalane, olive oil, watermelon and oxido reductases, another anti-oxidant. Apart from the ubiquitous potential irritants (in this case, PEG-40 Stearate) and some silicone, the ingredients are well chosen.

Skin Doctors Antarctilyne Plump has Aldenine and another peptide called decorinyl that is supposed to be good at restoring elasticity to skin. It has tea (anti-oxidant) and a useful sunscreen. There are a couple of unnecessary perfumes and parabens. Otherwise, not bad.

Now that I know that tripeptide-1 and soy protein equals Aldenine, I've spotted that it's one of the ingredients in Zelens Skin Science Serum. I've written about Zelens several times. The packaging is almost too sexy for its own good. Don't be fooled. This is a serious cream with really good ingredients.

Elements 4 Men Enforce has a 3% concentration Aldenine. It is the only potion for guys with Aldenine that I have found so far. I am not able to recommend it, however, since I can't find a detailed ingredients list anywhere. The only other ingredient that I know it contains is squalane from shark's liver (I heard on the radio the other day that sharks are in danger of becoming an endangered species).

    Charlotte, I have added the ingredients of the Dermaxime product so that you can see that in actual fact it doesn't contain PEGs or parabens

    The products you listed contain PEGs and parabens and other fillers. Do you know of any other products that have aldenine as an ingredient that have an ingredient list that doesn't contain these extras? Thanks!!

    <p>Dermaxime's Revjuvenating Serum and Rejuvenating Neck Cream also contain Aldenine. I have the Rejuvenating Serum but for some reason, got distracted and haven't tried it as of yet. Thanks for the interesting article and site! I will be sure to dig the product out of the recesses of my bathroom.</p>
