Hexapeptide-1 PF is a natural skincare peptide. Hexapeptides are 6 amino acid sequence peptides that are used to increase collagen synthesis for improved tone while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Peptide technology penetrates the skin and binds to cell surface receptors to stimulate cell activity.
Isolates from Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast such as heat shock proteins, have been used for their anti-irritant and wound healing benefits, and they have also been shown to increase intracellular respiration, improve intracellular metabolism while also increasing collagen and elastin production. Originally touted as a means to mask signs of sleep deprivation by reducing under eye puffiness, yeast extracts have now also been employed to improve skin tone and elasticity as well as increase stratum corneum hydration and cellular renewal.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae is cultured in an amino acid rich environment; following fermentation AC Hexapeptide 1 PF is isolated using various filtration techniques.
- Dark spot reduction
- Wrinkle reduction
- Eye puffiness reduction
- Improved skin tone
- Increased collagen and elastin production
- Improved skin hydration
