Mechanisms of Action
Hexapeptide-11 reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making this an excellent addition to all kinds of skincare and anti-aging products. It has a unique set of amino acids that allow it to manipulate collagen levels and boost elasticity in the skin. So it can be used for both skin care and scalp care.
Hexapeptide-11 of structure Phe-Val-Ala-Pro-Phe-Pro (FVAPFP) was initially isolated from yeast extracts and later synthesized. Our product is 100% synthesized in the laboratory.
Hexapeptide-11 is also associated with hair growth. It has been shown in vitro genomic studies run on human dermal fibroblasts to upregulate critical genes responsible for collagen production and important extracellular matrix components such as hyaluronic acid. A gene microarray study conducted on human dermal fibroblasts shows that topical treatment with Hexapeptide-11 could upregulate the Androgen Receptor gene (AR), indicating that the peptide is capable of binding to the Androgen Receptor much the way testosterone will. The finding suggests that Hexapeptide-11 may be able to influence the principal biochemical pathways responsible for converting young vellus hair into mature terminal hair.
