I'm interested in hearing if anyone has tried any creams containing Palmitoyl Pentapeptide -3
like number 7 protect and perfect anti-wrinkle serum or Olay regenerative.
I got interested in it after watching Prof.Regans.Beauty.Parlour:
I'm wondering if you could get improved skin using a product like that without the side effects of a retinoid. The documentary seems to say you can so I'd like to hear what about people here think about that.
I have seen Dr Regan's beauty parlour. Good doc!
First of all, I'd like to get one thing strait here: the cream from Nr7 (owned by Alliance/Boots) contain Retinol (Vit A derivate) and Oligopeptide 3. Retinol is said to have the sane effect as Tretinoin (another Vit. A derivate).
IT DOES NOT.
It is like saying that graffite and diamond are the same because they are both carbon molecules.
(Deeper on Tretinoin see articl.:
OlygoPeptide3 works in the epidermis and claims to regenerate the surface of the skin.
The difference between Tretinoin and OlygoPeptide3 is that Tretinoin will repair DNA damage and increase cell-turnover, works in the Epidermis and DERMIS while OlygoPeptide3 works only in the Epidermis.
