Matrixyl

Alyria Intense Wrinkle Correction contains 5% Matrixyl (the highest percentage available) and Retinol, among other ingredients.


Matrixyl is the trademark name for palmitoyl pentapeptide. , a substance held to be as effective as retinol in repairing sun-damaged skin but devoid of its side-effects.

It was originally named palmitoyl pentapeptide-3 and later renamed to palmitoyl pentapeptide-4 to reflect a correction in the data on its molecular structure.

Matrixyl, also known as Pal-KTTKS, is a lipopeptide, a fatty acid mixed with amino acids.

Similar to copper peptides, Matrixyl stimulates the lower layers of the skin to heal themselves.

Matrixyl stimulates the "matrix" substances of the skin — primarily collagen and fibronectin.

When stimulated, the skin produces more collagen.

Loss of collagen is what leads to thinning skin and the wrinkling of newly inelastic skin.

Matrixyl helps to counteract this natural part of the aging skin process.

A six-month study revealed that Matrixyl temporarily produces “a highly significant reduction in the deep and moderate wrinkles.”

Matrixyl was shown to:

Patients who had used Matrixyl throughout the study experienced dramatic results.

The longer the patients used Matrixyl the better the cumulative improvement became over six months.
