A Messenger Peptide For Collagen Renewal
Glyceryl Polymethacrylate: Glyceryl Polymethacrylate is a mixture of Glycerin and Polymethacrylic Acid. Glyceryl Polymethacrylate is a film-forming agent that creates a protective barrier on the skin and reduces water loss. This keeps skin moisturized and soft. It also enhances both the texture, application and skin feel of a product thanks to its smooth finish.
Propylene Glycol: An organic compound. In cosmetics, PG is commonly used to emulsify oil components with water-based components. It also helps cosmetic items from melting in high heat and freezing in low temperatures.
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide: This synthetic peptide (meaning it is man-made) consists of the amino acids glycine, glutamine, proline and arginine. Palmitoyl oligopeptide is actually a fragment of collagen that is attached to palmitic acid, which makes it more stable while also enhancing its ability to bind to human skin. The main function of palmitoyl oligopeptide is the restructuring of cutaneous, or skin, tissues. When the synthesis of these proteins is stimulated, the effect is smoother, wrinkle-free, rejuvenated-looking skin.

In Vitro Tests
Synthesis of Matrix MacromoleculesHuman fibroblasts are put in culture in the presence of BIOPEPTIDE CL. An assessment is taken of the stimulation of the synthesis of matrix macromolecules in comparison with the untreated control.
Stimulation of Collagen Synthesis: +350%
Stimulation of Gene ExpressionStudy of the regulation of dermal and epidermal genes in the presence of BIOPEPTIDE CL using DNA-array technique on reconstructed epidermis and on fibroblast culture.
Stimulation of Glycosaminoglycan Synthesis: +146%
Ex Vivo Tests
ProcedureThe skin is subjected to a radiation UVA (2,7 J/cm²/ 5 min) then an application of product 5 times over a week. By taking a biopsy sample, a histological study is carried out on the quantification of collagen. The treatment is continued over a second week without UVA radiation. Further biopsy samples are then taken.
BIOPEPTIDE CL has a protective and repairing effect similar to Retinoic Acid. 9 volunteers / 2 weeks / UVA irradiation during the first week / Application of products containing 5% BIOPEPTIDE CL or 0.05% Retinoic Acid / biopsis.
Protecting effectThis study shows that a treatment with BIOPEPTIDE CL protects dermal collagen like Retinoic Acid (Vitamin A). Both molecules strongly decreased UV-induced collagen degradation.
Repairing effect1 week later, one notices an increase in the amount of dermal collagen (+10% for the 2 products) and in epidermal thickness.
In Vivo Tests
Increase in the Thickness of the Epidermis23 volunteers / 28 days / application of a cream containing 4% BIOPEPTIDE CL or placebo / Ultrasound measurement of skin thickness.
Anti-wrinkle effect15 volunteers / 28 days / twice daily application of a cream containing 3% BIOPEPTIDE CL or placebo to the crow’s feet area / Evaluation of anti-wrinkle efficacy by print analysis.
Including Peptides and Actives is a great way to customize your own skin care lineWe’ve all seen specialty serums, face and night creams with prices ranging anywhere from $70.00 to $100.00 or more for a 1/2 oz jar. What makes them so special? Great packaging and aggressive marketing work wonders, but the main thing that makes these products stand out from the rest is the use of Peptides and/or actives. We at EBC are well aware that Peptides are among the most intriguing and sought-after skin care ingredients used in successful anti-wrinkle products today. Here we offer you BIOPEPTIDE CL™ a patented formulation (FR 2 668 365-FR 2 802 413-WO 01/43701) from Sederma formulated in France.
But what are peptides? What do peptides do that other skin care ingredients don't do?Peptides are short chains of amino acids. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of proteins and many other different types of organic molecules. Peptides are frequently created by the digestion of proteins in the body, and many types of peptides are readily and rapidly absorbed by the bloodstream. For this reason, peptides are particularly effective as skin care ingredients.
Many peptides work as hormones, neurotransmitters and as natural pain relievers.
What do peptides do?Different peptides have different effects. Peptides are a widely variable group of molecules, so speaking generally about the function of peptides is meaningless. Simply, there are four powerful peptides used in skin care products: acetyl hexapeptide-3, palmitoyl pentapeptide-3, palmitoyl oligopeptide and copper peptides. Here we will briefly discuss the function of palmitoyl oligopeptide which is the peptide in BIOPEPTIDE CL™.
Palmitoyl oligopeptide: this member of the peptides stimulates the synthesis of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the deep layers of the skin. In addition, palmitoyl oligopeptide has a mild UV protection effect, thus helping to protect the skin from damage.
How do I use it?As stated in the studies above add directly to your emulsions (lotion and creams, etc) at 45°C and into gels at room temperature. Use at a level of 2%-5%.
Looking for the ultimate combination of Biopeptides that will restructure the dermal matrix causing firming and anti-wrinkle action while increasing suppleness. A combination of both Biopeptide CL (collagen) and Biopeptide EL (elastin) will boost results considerably! Both are available here at Essentials By Catalina.
