Saccharide Isomerate is a polysaccharide that mimics a carbohydrate complex found in outermost layer of human skin. Topically, it improves moisture levels up to 72 hours with a single application.
Matrixyl®, a trademark of Sederma, represents a range of synthetic, signaling peptides that boosts the skin’s production of collagen, the protein responsible for providing strength and structure. Signaling peptides, or Matrikines, are chemical messengers instructing the cell to perform a specific function, stimulating the skin’s natural process. Derived from the amino acids paired with a fatty acid Palmitic Acid, each form of Matrixyl® delivers distinct benefits, in addition to accelerating collagen production.
