Matrixyl - clinical studies
The essential structure of the inner skin tissue, especially around the face area, deteriorates greatly with age. The skin loses its elasticity and ability to hold in moisture, and the collagen-elastin network weakens over time. Although it loses many of its youthful qualities, it is possible to reinvigorate the mesh structure of aging skin and boost the properties of the skin cells themselves.
The Sederma Corporation recently finished a series of trials on matrixyl, a new, science-based solution that offers great potential for skin restoration among mature adults. Matrixyl was designed to promote collagen and elastin production while strengthening the essential structural matrix of the skin tissue.
The research on matrixyl is extremely encouraging. A recent test lasted six months and involved a panel of 35 female volunteers with an average age of 58 years. It compared matrixyl to both a placebo (fake cream) and to 5% vitamin C. All three creams were applied twice daily.
The researchers discovered that matrixyl produced significantly different results than those obtained from the placebo or the product containing vitamin C. The results achieved with the matrixyl cream are as follows:
Surface area of deep wrinkles reduced by an average of 68%
Surface area of moderate wrinkles reduced by an average of 51%
Density of furrows reduced by an average of 47%
Volume of main wrinkles reduced by an average of 24%
Roughness of the skin reduced by an average of 16%
The women in this study reported that matrixyl made their skin feel moisturized, smoother, and more supple and that it reduced wrinkles and lines.
These are very encouraging results, and matrixyl is showing signs as a first-line approach to nurturing mature skin and reducing the signs of aging.
Matrixyl®. Developed by French researchers, this patented blend supports the collagen/skin matrix and encourages the skin to produce new cells.
Researchers have shown up to a 90% reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, 76% improvement in suppleness and a full 92% moisturizing increase.
