Looking for an anti-wrinkle cream?

Check out its must-have ingredients before you buy


Anti-wrinkle creams, as the name suggests, are medical cosmetics that are scientifically created to eliminate all signs of premature aging on your face, such as wrinkles, crows’ feet and fine lines. These products also make your skin taut, give your skin its natural elasticity and give it a glow you never imagined possible.

The ingredients that make this effective are now a part of every respectable anti-wrinkle cream, eye cream or serum. If you are looking to have smoother and younger looking skin for much longer, read the ingredients information on such cosmetics before you buy.

Ingredients to look for: There are many active ingredients of anti-wrinkle creams that go to make them a huge success. These are: Retinol, Coenzyme Q10, Vitamins A, C and E, green tea extracts and hydroxyl acids. These ingredients help reduce the development of wrinkles, and even out your skin tone, moisturize and hydrate it.

Major ingredients: Apart from various ingredients that do a lot to make aging skin look youthful and tight, here are three major and potent ingredients that can transform old looking skin into youthful and vibrant skin:

Matrixyl 3000: Matrixyl 3000 was scientifically developed and is known to repair skin damage associated with aging. It comprises peptides and matrikines. It also contains Pal-GHK (palmitoyl oligopeptide) and Pal-GQPR (palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7) which work jointly as antioxidants to fight the negative signs of skin aging. They also stimulate the collagen and fibronectin molecules to reduce one’s facial wrinkles.

Both Pal-GHK and Pal-GQPR contain amino acids connected to palmitic acid and help with deep skin penetration. While Pal-GHK is particularly effective in stimulating new collagen synthesis, Pal-GQPR is instrumental in retarding the growth of the skin matrix and encouraging new cells to develop.

Matrixyl 3000 mimics the body into thinking that its collagen store is damaged. The body is stimulated to produce its own collagen and elastin store, which helps tighten up sagging skin, restore its natural elasticity, give your complexion fullness and iron out wrinkles.

Its ability to restore our natural skin elasticity can be proved by a study conducted on two groups of 23 volunteers, 39 years to 74 years of age. They applied a cream on their faces twice a day that contained 3% Matrixyl 3000 or 3% Matrixyl and when the study ended, they found that the skin tone and elasticity of the subjects improved significantly, thus proving Matrixyl 3000’s efficacy in restoring skin elasticity and youth to subjects.

In another study, Matrixyl 3000 demonstrated that it could reduce wrinkle density by an amazing 33%, wrinkle volume by 23% and wrinkle depth by 20%. This, along with the study above, proves that Matrixyl 3000 can significantly reduce existing wrinkles and improve its tone and elasticity. 


·         It reduces wrinkle density, depth and volume, elevates sagging skin and improves skin tone considerably.

·         Matrixyl 3000 fights free radicals, gives an even skin tone, increases skin thickness, moisturizes the skin and give it the firmness of youth and a healthy look.

Argireline: This is the patented name of Acetyl hexapeptide-3, a synthetic ingredient of anti-wrinkle creams. It is a peptide which contains Botox’s substrate, a derivative of natural proteins, comprises six amino acids and is known as a mini version of Botox.

Argireline gets rid of existing wrinkles, fine lines and creases near the eyes and forehead and prevents the formation of new ones. In combination with a chemically manufactured cosmetic compound, Argireline relaxes the facial muscles that help us smile or frown which, in turn, help dramatically reduces any wrinkles caused due to muscle contractions.

It does this by inhibiting the neurotransmitters in the brain that tell our facial muscles when to tense. Its effectiveness was proved when 27% of women subjects had reduced wrinkle depth when they used a cream that contained 10% Argireline.


·         It is pain-free and saves time and the expense of seeing a dermatologist.

·         Argirelene calms contracted muscles that cause lowered wrinkle depth.

·         It relaxes muscles in the same way that Botox does

PhytoCell Tec-Smell Cell: This ingredient of anti-wrinkle creams uses the stem cells of a very rare Swiss apple known for its longevity, to improve the lifespan of our skin cells, save it from the sun’s harmful radiation and help the genes that repair DNA.

In a study of 20 subjects aged between 37 and 64 years, the efficacy of this ingredient was tested. It was applied twice a day to the crows’ feet near the subjects’ eyes. When the experiment ended, each subject showed a definite reduction in wrinkle depth, thus proving that PhytoCell Tec-Smell Cell is effective in reducing wrinkles and restoring a youthful look to the skin.

Stem cell technology helps to strengthen, rejuvenate, improve, support and protect our skin cells to check that they can develop new ones and retard the signs of skin aging.
