France-headquartered ingredients supplier Sederma has added a new anti-wrinkle peptide to its Matrixyl range.

Matrixyl Synthe’6, designed for female skin, joins the Matrixyl 3000 which was released in 2007 for male skin.

According to a company spokesperson, Matrixyl Synthe'6 is a peptide based ingredient that acts on 6 major constituents of the skin and can help rebuild the skin from within, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

After two months of application, the ingredient can visibly smooth wrinkles leading to smoother and plumper skin, Sederma (part of Croda International) added.

Cell ageing tackled

The launch follows shortly the release of another anti-ageing ingredient from the company, Juvinity, designed to delay both nucleus and metabolic senescence (ageing).

Nucleus ageing refers to the ageing of structures and processes related to the nucleus such as DNA damage and telomere shortening, a spokesperson for the company explained at the time of the launch.

“Metabolic senescence relates to the decrease of the cell metabolism in terms of energy, synthesis level and cell vitality,”​ the spokesperson told CosmeticsDesign-Europe.com.

According to the company, the ingredient can help protect the nucleus structures from oxidation and damage, and has both corrective and preventative effects.
