Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 is a biomimetic peptide designed to mimic human growth factor (GF). It works by signaling active keratinocytes and melanocytes to produce more hair and pigmentation (darkening of the hair). This also increases the number of hair follicles in the growth phase. These signals significantly stimulate keratin genes, stimulate keratin growth, and enhance the appearance by lengthening & thickening hair and eyelashes. Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 can stimulate small vellus hairs within the beard line to develop and stimulate inactive hair follicles.
In a study done on the effects of Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17 on eyelashes, they saw a 51% improvement in curl & a 35% improvement in thickness over baseline. The end results are more noticeable eyes.Significantly improves the look of eyelashes, making them appear longer, thicker, and fortified. Combine with Myristoyl Hexapeptide-16 for the best results Visible effect in 2-4 weeks & maximum results at 6 weeks.
Hair on the eyelashes and eyebrows has a very short active growth phase of only about 30-45 days which explains why they are shorter than scalp hair. Approximately 60-80% of the eyelashes are in this phase.The entire duration of the cycle for eyelashes is 3-4 months, whereas the scalp hair cycle is up to 6 years. Liposomes are the latest nano-scale technology for the encapsulation of cosmetic actives. The lipids used are extremely biocompatible with cell walls allowing them to bond to and release the active ingredient directly into the cells.
Not only do you need less of the active ingredient to achieve better results, but the steady absorption over time will increase the benefits between applications.
