Also known as pal-GHK and palmitoyl oligopeptide, palmitoyl tripeptide-1 is a synthetic fatty acid-linked peptide that can help repair visible skin damage and strengthen skin’s underlying supportive elements.
It’s categorized as a messenger peptide because of its ability to “tell” skin how to look better, specifically in regard to visibly fading signs of sun damage like wrinkles and rough texture.
Some research has shown that this peptide has similar anti-aging benefits to retinol, but there’s no reason a person cannot use both ingredients for even greater benefits.

Trade name Matrixyl, a fatty acid mixed with amino acids. Manufactured by the French lab Sederma, it is used primarily as an ingredient in cosmetics making anti-wrinkle claims. Studies both from Sederma and from independent researchers have shown palmitoyl pentapeptide-4 can have an impact on the visual signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles.

Acetyl hexapeptide-1 is a synthetic peptide composed of the amino acid’s alanine, arginine, histidine, leucine, phenylalanine and tryptophan. It helps skin better defend itself from environmental aggressors by virtue of a calming effect.
This peptide can also help promote a visibly more even skin tone by playing a role in how melanin moves through skin.

A synthetic peptide that has calming, smoothing, hydrating, and firmness-enhancing benefits when applied to skin. Its calming properties are believed to reduce undereye puffiness due to fluid accumulation, such as from allergies (which is not the same as undereye bags that occur from fat pads beneath the skin slipping out of place).
This peptide is also believed to interrupt a process in skin known as glycation, which can cause skin’s supportive elements to weaken, giving way to wrinkles and loss of firmness. Acetyl tetrapeptide-5 seems to step in and help skin maintain a smooth resilience that results in a more youthful look.

In a 2005 clinical study, the objective was to clinically determine the effect of topical niacinamide on additional skin appearance and property endpoints (wrinkles, yellowing, and elasticity).
Female white subjects (N = 50) with clinical signs of facial photoaging (fine lines and wrinkles, poor texture, and hyperpigmented spots) applied 5% niacinamide to half of the face and its vehicle control to the other half twice daily for 12 weeks (double-blind, left-right randomized). Facial images and instrumental measures were obtained at baseline and at 4-week intervals.
Analyses of the data revealed a variety of significant skin appearance improvement effects for topical niacinamide: reductions in fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmented spots, red blotchiness, and skin sallowness (yellowing). In addition, elasticity (as measured via cutometry) was improved. Corresponding mechanistic information is presented.
