Argireline (acetyl hexapeptide-8): 5% Deep in the layers of our skin are muscular structures that control movement and eventually cause wrinkles. Much like botulinum toxin (Botox), this potent peptide reduces muscle contraction or movement that causes wrinkles. In clinical studies of twice-a-day treatment, the severity of wrinkles around the eyes decreased up to 27% following 30 days of treatment. Clinical trials have shown that this peptide does not cause skin irritation and is safe for consumer use.
Eyeseryl (acetyl hexapeptide-5): 5% One reason for puffy eyes is water accumulation or edema. Eyeseryl is a tetrapeptide with anti-edema properties. It has been proven to reduce puffy eyes in as little as 15 days. Both eyebag volume and dark circles were moderately, but significantly reduced.
