The Peptide Molecular Cream is a multi-functional cream that blends potent active ingredients with luxurious emollients. A complex of six peptides targets the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles while working to diminish future visible signs of aging. This formula also includes hyaluronic acid, squalane, jojoba seed oil, and apricot kernel oil, which work together on multiple levels to infuse the skin with lasting moisture, resulting in an immediate smoothing effect.
Peptide Complex – ArgirelineTM (Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, LeuphasylTM (Pentapeptide-18), SYN-AKETM (Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate), Snap-8TM (Acetyl Octapeptide-3), Matrixyl-3000TM (Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-7). This Peptide Complex works to smooth away the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Specifically, SYN-AKETM was designed to mimic the venom of the Malaysian Temple Viper, which has a paralytic effect on its prey.
Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate) – Known for its ability to hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant that draws moisture into the skin.
Squalane – Derived from olives, squalane works to deeply moisturize. It has a similar composition to skin’s own sebum, which makes it an excellent hydrator.
Jojoba Seed Oil (Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil) – Derived from a perennial shrub native to the southwestern US and parts of Mexico, jojoba seed oil is rich in fatty acids, and acts as a lightweight emollient.
Apricot Kernel Oil (Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil) – Made from the seeds of apricots, apricot kernel oil is a light yet effective moisturizer, that works well with all skin types to deliver hydration.
Courtney’s Application Recommendations: Apply a small amount of Sykes’ Peptide Molecular Cream 5-10 minutes after any Nourishing Serum has been applied to the skin, in order for each ingredient to soak in appropriately. May be used both morning or evening.
