It consists of 3 amino acids which are attached to a fatty acid-palmitic acid to increase oil solubility and enhance skin penetration. It is also known as messenger peptide because it signals the body to produce more collagen, thus providing anti-ageing protection and safeguards the skin cells from external damage. It is beneficial in reviving your skin’s natural texture and in preventing skin damage due to UV rays and other environmental aggressors.
