Research + Findings
A French study used profilometry (image analysis of skin) to measure the primary ingredients found that, unlike Retinol or Vitamin C, which can induce irritations and skin hyper reactivity, lipopeptides help stimulate the cellular matrix that leads to the synthesis of collagen I and IV, fibronectine and glycosaminoglycans leading to wrinkle reduction and wound healing.
The study recorded and observed the density, depth and volume of wrinkles and monitored the changes over time. In the first split-face, double-blind trial, 49 women applied the day cream or a placebo twice daily. In the active controlled study, 16 women compared the effects of cosmetic creams containing the lipopeptide active or retinol 700 ppm on photoaged skin. This trial also used a split-face, double-blind design and included profilometry, echography, and clinical assessments after two and four months of treatment.
In both trials, the study findings were statistically significant, saying treatment with the lipopeptides cream saw:
50% decrease in wrinkle depth
68% decrease in wrinkle density
24% decrease in wrinkle volume.
Lipopeptides were also associated with increases in elastin fibre density and thickness and improved regularity of collagen IV, both critical for smooth, supple skin.
