tripeptide-29

Tripeptide-29 is a synthetic, highly purified peptide consisting of amino acids glycine and proline plus amino acid derivative hydroxyproline. Applied to skin, it’s been shown to strengthen skin’s supportive elements. This improves uneven texture and the look of fine lines and also helps reverse a dehydrated appearance.

Tripeptide-29’s small size allows it to easily penetrate skin’s uppermost layers so it can reach its target areas sooner.
