Beautiful skin should last a lifetime. External factors like pollution and internal factors like oxidative damage and poor diet often stress the skin. This leaves the skin dry and dull or oily and dirty. As part of the natural aging process, the skin begins to develop deep wrinkles and furrows around the forehead, brow and eyes. The skin loses its natural luster and color. Pentaxyl may help to decrease the appearance of deep wrinkles and furrows, and to support natural collagen production and help skin appear firm and thicker.
Pentaxyl is a proprietary blend of herbal extracts and the breakthrough formulas of the Matrixyl® Complex and Argireline, which reduce the appearance of wrinkles and furrows, help skin look thicker and firmer, and gives the skin a youthful glow. Pentaxyl has harnessed the age-fighting power of "bio-peptide" technology, with three age-fighting bio-peptides (1) Pamitoyl-Pentapeptide-3 (Matrixyl) (2) Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (3) Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (Argireline). Peptides are a low molecular weight amino acid group that are building blocks of proteins that make up plants and animals. Palmitoyl_Pentapeptide-3 was discovered at National Institute of Health.
Pentaxyl may temporarily reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Skin will take on a more youthful appearance. While nothing can rewind time, Pentaxyl has been shown to support a beautiful, resilient, flawless look by fighting against the visible signs of aging.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 is a unique blend of three amino acids that has been reported to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead and eyes caused by facial expression muscles.
Palmitoyl oligopeptide, a fragment of collagen, is a chain of five amino acids bonded together and linked to a fatty acid. Research has shown that palmitoyl oligopeptide can promote normal collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and glycosaminoglycans in the skin, providing your skin with a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.

How much Pentaxyl do I need to use?
Pentaxyl is extremely concentrated and a little goes a long way. Typically, you only need an amount equal to the size of a dime to cover the facial area and about the size of a quarter when using Pentaxyl on stretch marks. These sizes may vary depending on the areas you are covering.
When will I begin to see results?
Pentaxyl's proprietary compounds may produce a visible reduction in the appearance of stretch marks (prominent because of their depth, length, and texture) and existing wrinkles.
Will Pentaxyl help with old wrinkles/stretch marks?
Absolutely! Pentaxyl can help no matter how long you've had your wrinkles/stretch marks - whether it's been 10 days or 10 years.
Can I use Pentaxyl on the wrinkles/circles underneath my eyes?
The correct way to apply Pentaxyl to the eye area is to softly massage it into the skin covering the orbital bone around the eye. Do not apply Pentaxyl directly underneath the eye or on top of the eyelid. Please use VitaShield Eye Cream which also contains Matrixyl.
Can I use Pentaxyl with other skincare products?
Pentaxyl can be used with virtually all other facial products. We suggest that you test any combination of skincare products on the inside of your forearm before applying it to your face. Of course, if you are using a prescription skincare product you should consult your physician. Remember, always apply Pentaxyl first, then if needed, you may apply a moisturizer or on top of Pentaxyl.
