The Ordinary Argireline Solution 10%: a skin treatment serum for inhibiting muscle movement. Argireline Solution provides 10% acetyl hexapeptide-3 in a serum designed to prevent wrinkle formation.
Argireline is a trademark owned by Barcelona-based Lipotec. It is a proprietary solution of Acetyl Hexapeptide-3. Controlled studies have shown that Argireline improves the appearance of facial areas prone to developing dynamic folds, including around the eyes and in the forehead area.
Argireline: How It Works
Argireline prevents the formation of expression wrinkles by inhibiting muscle movement. When there is no muscle movement, there are no wrinkles. No frowning equals no wrinkles although there are other causal factors for wrinkle formation. Lipotec's studies involved using a 5% Argireline solution and showed a 17% decrease in eye wrinkles after 15 days and 27% after 30 days.
An independant study carried out by a Spanish university using 10% Argireline solution reduced wrinkles by 30% after 30 days.
Note: Studies have shown that the water content of formulations does impact the utility level of topical Argireline and specifically that higher water content results in better utility. This formulation is water-based and avoids oils, esters and silicones.
Directions: Apply a few drops of Argireline serum on the forehead and around the eyes twice daily before heavier treatments.
