You’ve tried everything on the shelf – scrubs, exfoliants, creames. All of it worked a little, but nothing hit the jackpot for your skin. Why is it that after 30, you can’t get rid of those bags under your eyes, those wrinkles around your nose? First, let’s look at the most fundamental ingredient in your skin: collagen.

Collagen is the protein responsible for skin repair, rejuvenation, and for maintaining the radiance and natural elasticity of your skin. Every topical product on the market is developed to encourage the production of collagen. While everyone touts a new and revolutionary formula, there is one secret ingredient that is used in all anti-aging treatments: it’s called Matrixyl. According to a recent article on,

“Matrixyl is a peptide which stimulates the skin to produce more of its own collagen as well as more hyaluronic acid, which also plumps and moisturizes the skin.”

The key phrase here is that it stimulates the skin to produce more of it’s own collagen. This is beauty from the inside out, where we encourage the body’s intrinsic processes to renew and rejuvenate. The most advanced, scientific studies have been conducted to prove the efficacy of Matrixyl. Study after study, test after test has revealed the same benefits of Matrixyl:

“The scientists found that Matrixyl almost doubles the amount of collagen that the body produces, and concluded that it was effective in reducing the signs of aging.”

You may have heard the same claims for Retin-A. While Retin-A does have the same effects of smoothing out wrinkles and plumping the skin, it is only available by prescription. Also, don’t be fooled by over-the-counter products who claim that retinol is the same as Retin-A. It is not nearly as effective and may have unwanted side effects.
