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.:http://www.imminst.o...n-A-t20360.html
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.
