Peptide 4 pro-collagen: The active ingredient that erases expression wrinkles

It may have a somewhat complicated name, but Peptide 4 pro-collagen works hard to preserve our skin’s youth. It is a unique and ultra-targeted active ingredient that helps reduce wrinkles on areas such as the forehead, eyes and lip contour consistent with regular facial movement. It is very effective on frown lines!

Where does Peptide 4 pro-collagen come from?

Discovered in 1973 by Loren Pickart, an American researcher, Peptide 4 pro-collagen, or GHK tripeptide, is found in numerous body fluids including plasma. It plays an essential role in skin cell regeneration and tissue repair, stimulating fibroblast cells to create collagen; a vital role in wound healing. After its discovery, it started to be included in skin wound or post-laser treatments.

How does it benefit the skin?

  • It redensifies the skin and smoothes wrinkles: This peptide is naturally occurring in the skin and stimulates the synthesis of collagen and other dermal constituents, which are essential to the skin’s density and firmness. Expression wrinkles are visibly reduced.

Peptide 4 pro-collagen, the absolute partner at any age

Peptide 4 pro-collagen is particularly recommended for treating expression lines. These are considered the first sign of ageing and are the result of the combined actions of facial muscle movements and ageing skin. They usually occur between and around the eyes, on the forehead, or on either side of the mouth.

We therefore recommend taking preventative action as soon as they appear, regardless of the age. With that being said, GHK tripeptide also has proven efficiency on mature skin, with deeper wrinkles and lines.

With the help of this active ingredient, it is possible to regain a visibly smoother skin. In vitro, and then in vivo studies have demonstrated the efficiency of Peptide 4 pro-collagen products, with improved skin elasticity and appearance. Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced, and the skin is more dense and plump.
