PALMITOYL tripeptide-5, also known as PALMITOYL tripeptide-5 in English, is mainly used as an antioxidant in cosmetics and skin care products. Its risk coefficient is 1, so it is relatively safe and can be safely used. Generally, it has no effect on pregnant women, and PALMITOYL tripeptide-5 does not cause acne.
Palmitoyl tripeptide-5 is a skin conditioner. Promote the growth of skin cells, inhibit oxygen free radicals and hydroxyl free radicals, promote the synthesis of matrix protein, especially collagen, and may also increase the production of elastin, hyaluronic acid, glycosaminoglycan and fibrinolytic protein. The peptides promote collagen synthesis by increasing the activity of stromal cells, making skin appear more elastic and youthful. The way of action is similar to retinoic acid, but without the side effect of retinoic acid, it increases the synthesis of collagen and intercellular hyaluronic acid (HA), making fine lines invisible and skin firm.
