Lyophilized Peptides SNAP-8 CAS 868844-74-0 with 1mg/vial
The anti wrinkle octapeptide SNAP-8 is an elongation of the famous hexapeptide ARGIRELINE. The study of the basic mechanism of anti-wrinkle activity led to the revolutionary hexapeptide which has taken the cosmetic world by storm. Those same studies have been applied to bring another addition to the Botulinum Toxin inspired family of peptides.
It has been clearly established that these conformational changes and the disturbance of the perfect packing of the lipid matrix can be significantly avoided by modulating muscle contraction.
SNAP-8 reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead and around eyes. SNAP-8 is a safer, cheaper, and milder alternative to Botulinum Toxin, topically targeting the same wrinkle formation mechanism in a very different way.
An octapeptide to express your self at ease:
Octapeptide that reduces the depth of wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions, being a topical alternative to injections.
Mechanism of action:
This new analogue of N-terminal SNAP-25, which follows the revolutionary ARGIRELINE peptide, competes with natural proteins to be positioned in the SNARE Complex, which is destabilised. As a result, it reduces neuronal excitability and, therefore, muscle contraction.
By reducing muscle contractions, wrinkle depth is reduced up to 63% in one month of treatment. Fine lines and expression wrinkles fade, and the face look smoother.
