What is Tetrapeptide-3?

Tetrapeptide-3 is a popular ingredient used to combat wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots. Tetrapeptide 3 is also sometimes known anecdotally as "The Youth Molecule."

Tetrapeptide-3 is a type of peptide that is composed of four amino acids that have been bound together to create a synthetic peptide. It is found naturally in everyone's skin and can help to boost skin health and moisture levels.

Tetrapeptide-3 is part of your skin's natural defence system. It was discovered by scientists in 2013 and is now one of the newest and most popular anti-ageing ingredients on the market.

Skin benefits of Tetrapeptide-3

Stimulates collagen production
Tetrapeptide-3 helps to stimulate the growth of collagen and
elastin to strengthen the skin structure. As we age, the epidermis (the outside layer of skin) and the dermis (the layer that holds our collagen and elastin) begin to separate, which can give the appearance of thinner skin and more pronounced lines and wrinkles. Tetrapeptide 3 works to strengthen the connection between these two layers to slow ageing. 

Slows the signs of ageing
Tetrapeptide-3 has been shown to reduce wrinkle depth in 28 days.

Why We Use Tetrapeptide-3

“We used Tetrapeptide-3 in a selection of our skincare products to help target and treat the signs of skin ageing. It is a great ingredient for those looking for anti-ageing skincare as it stimulates the production of
collagen and elastin, helping your skin produce more of these essential proteins to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of ageing.”
