INCI Name: Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17
- Cat No. AP105003
- Other Names: Lys-Leu-Ala-Lys-Lys
0.1% (1,000 ppm) Solution Specifications:
Applications and Properties:
The peptide encourages eyelash growth by stimulating the keratin genes responsible for longer and thicker lashes. Original eyelash growth serums contained prostaglandins which had certain risks. Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 in the eyelash growth serums offers a safer alternative to eyelash growth.
Mechanisms of Action
Improve hair fullness, enhances eye lash growth by stimulating keratin genes, results in thicker and longer lashes.
- Lengthens and thickens the eyelashes
- Fortifies the hair, noticeably intensifying one’s expression
The formation of keratin in the anagen phase is essential for eyelash growth and density. With advancing age, this process fails to run smoothly. It has been shown in laboratory experiments to increase the expression of keratin genes by up to 160%, thereby boosting keratin production. This has translated into striking results in human clinical studies.
In a recent trial, 15 human volunteers ranging in age from 24 to 82 applied an eyeliner serum containing myristoyl pentapeptide-17 to the roots of their lashes. The researchers used computer-assisted image analysis software to assess eyelash characteristics. They observed a 25% increase in eyelash length and thickness in just 14 days!
Even more impressive, another study revealed that participants applying an eyeliner serum with myristoyl pentapeptide-17 to the target area increased eyelash thickness and length by 72% after six weeks. Both studies reported no adverse side effects.
