Argireline – is it the best anti wrinkle treatment?

by Geneva

Many beauty product users have really studied up on their stuff in recent years.  Your average skin care expert isn’t just your local dermatologist, it’s your neighbor who knits, your cousin who is a busy Mom, or your niece who is a college student trying to look her best.  The Internet has caused many beauty product consumers to do extensive research before buying skin treatments. It allows us to surf the web to not only find out the latest research reports, but also the most up-to-date consumer skin cream reviews.  These reviews allow us to see what others feel about a product before investing in it – something of major value to those of us who are scared to invest $100 on an eye cream, for example.  The web allows us to not only read, but also to share information.

In recent years many beauty product users have started talking about Argireline, known by it’s INCI (scientific) name of Acetyl Hexapeptide 3.  It’s commonly found in the best wrinkle treatments that are sold in “cream form.”  Many head formulators agree it’s ability to relax muscles is a very powerful wrinkle treatment, and it’s even been compared to Botox injections.

So what exactly makes this miracle ingredient so special?  Well, let’s take a look at the clinical tests done on this anti aging workhorse…..

According to an anti aging publication, in a clinical study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, acetyl hexapeptide-3 at a 10% concentration has been shown to reduce the depth of wrinkles up to 30% after 30 days of use.

Wow!  The reason most wrinkles are so apparent on our skin is due to their extreme depth.  When your skin has been subject to damage, from the sun and other elements, it makes wrinkles appear.  When you can effectively treat wrinkles with a skin cream containing Argireline, it helps conceal wrinkles in a non-invasive, non-painful manner.  I can’t stand needles, so injections are out of the question for me.  Plus, I’ve heard stories of “botox gone bad” and read all sorts of bad reviews online.  I just don’t want that risk and pain…ugh, it freaks me out.

For my money, I’ll always search for the best skin creams online and do my homework on their ingredient mixes.  Ingredients can be researched rather easily online – I always look for the manufacturers website for information.  In the case of Argireline, it’s made by a company called Center Chem, and their website has all sorts of studies published talking about why it’s such a potent anti aging ingredient.

Here is a list of products that contain Argireline:  EliteSkin’s Wrinkle Eraser, Elite Serum, LifeCell’s Anti Wrinkle Cream.  They are all among the best selling online skin products and are held in high regard on many anti wrinkle consumer review sites.
