Reverses some of the damage caused by sunlight. Inhibits inappropriate inflammatory responses.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is a synthetic peptide comprised of four amino acids that is used to suppress the production of excess interleukins, the chemical messengers which trigger the body’s acute inflammatory response. This negatively affects the skin’s support system, (comprised of collagen, elastin and other proteins) and leads to wrinkles, sagging, and uneven skin tone. UV radiation is also known to accelerate interleukin production. Cells exposed to UV radiation and then treated with Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 saw(in a recent study) an 86% reduction of interleukin production. Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 was previously known as Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3.
