Consists of a short chain of four Amino acids (GQPR) connected to Palmitic acid
- Works by reducing the production of interleukin-6 (IL-6) by the key skin cells, keratinocytes and fibroblasts
- IL-6 is a molecule that promotes inflammation, which, in turn, leads to a faster degradation of the skin matrix and thus contributes to the development of wrinkles and loss of firmness and elasticity of the skin. By reducing IL-6 levels, this peptide delays degradation of the skin matrix and can also stimulate its replenishment.
- Amino acid sequence: Pal - Gly - Gln - Pro - Arg - OH
