Argireline Amplified Peptide; What it is and why we love it

Argireline Amplified Peptide; What it is and why we love it

As the hands of time march onward, ageing is an inevitable thing. Have you noticed how your muscles get a little stiffer after exercise than they did when you were 16? This is also the case for facial muscles. When it comes to skin, the older you get, the less ‘bouncy’ your skin becomes. This means that after you frown or (preferably) smile, your skin and facial muscles take longer to return to their normal, resting positions. As skin elasticity decreases and muscle stiffness increases with age, repeated facial expressions will start to stick around and this is what turns a little laugh line into a permanent, cavernous wrinkle. And therein, the crow’s feet are born.

Usually, these don't simply grow up and fly the nest. Crow's feet are more of the 'mooch from your parents forever' type. But, us being the clever type, we've spent the last two years finessing an active serum that will save you from spending hundreds on injections and finally give those stubborn lines a good kick out of the door.

Argireline® Amplified Peptide – What is it?

What’s the point of anti-ageing ingredients, particularly the expensive ones, if they just sit on top of the skin? Exactly! Not much point at all. Test tube results are meaningless if they don’t translate to real life, right? We want ingredients that do what they’re supposed to (that’s why you buy them after all), and to do that, they need to get into your skin. An effective serum is all about compatible molecular size and appropriate delivery systems. There’s a lot more to effective skin care than slapping on a cream and hoping for the best.

More Potent Than Regular Argireline® Peptide

Until now, the peptides in anti-ageing products claiming to reduce fine lines have been made with regular Argireline. Regular Argireline is a fantastic anti-ageing the test tube. It is specifically designed to target wrinkles and lines, particularly during facial expression. But, studies on living skin were “mixed” due to poor penetration. This has been the consistent problem for a lot of Peptides used in skincare products currently available; they sound great, but when it comes to using them, you’ll often be left disappointed and frustrated. And nobody likes to feel that way!

Highly Effective Delivery System

To overcome this problem of poor penetration with standard Argirelene, Argireline® Amplified Peptide – also known as modified acetyl hexapeptide-8 - was developed by our chemists in 2020. It has a smaller molecule size and we’ve combined it with a Liposome delivery system that ensures this wonderful active penetrates right down into the deep layers of the skin to address fine lines at the source.

How does it work?

Weakening the Neuro-Transmitters

The Argireline® Amplified Peptide, when combined with our specific delivery system, works by weakening the neuro-transmitters between your skin and the muscle to reduce the amount of expression lines that become visible on your face as you go about your day.

Less expression lines = less visible wrinkles!

We use the same percentage and same techniques as used in the original lab trials which show a 20% reduction in wrinkle depth after just 28 days of use. Pretty cool, huh?

Effects can last up to 5 Days

The effects of Argireline® Amplified Peptide last around 5 days as the neurotransmitters reconnect the skin and the muscle. This means your results will improve over time with continued use as wrinkles and expression lines are ongoingly preventatively diminished.

Our Argireline Amplified Peptide serum also helps to reduce muscles stiffness to in turn reduce the formation of expression lines. Because the Argireline® Amplified Peptide gets right down into the deep layers of your skin, don’t be surprised if you feel a slight stiffening sensation. This means it’s working!

Like Botox in a Bottle (Kind Of)

Sound familiar? Yes, this is what anti-ageing injections like Botox do, but on a much more drastic, expensive, semi-permanent, and invasive level. Please note, that while the mechanisms are similar, we’re not claiming that the results are the same.

Who is it suitable for?

This serum is suitable for all skin types – the sensitive ones included! It works to diminish existing fine lines and prevent them from forming, meaning this can be added into the daily routine for both younger and more mature people. Whether you’re in your mid-twenties or your early forties, our Argireline Amplified Peptide (5%) Anti-ageing Active Serum will be effective for you. What else is in it? Just like our other serums, this active ingredient sits nicely in a skin-soothing, hydrating base, with added Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Natural Vitamin E to keep skin nourished and healthy.

Like all MooGoo products, this serum is safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Always be sure to patch test first though, as we all have such unique and different skin.

So, try the Argireline Amplified Peptide (5%) Anti-ageing Active Serum for yourself. Be sure to use it for at least 28 days for the study, and then let us know what you think down below. Enjoy!
