Experiments have found that an ingredient in  anti-wrinkle creams does have the power to turn back the hands of time.It is news that will put a smile on the  face  of plenty of women of a certain age.

Chemist Ian Hamley, who is researching the  use of collagen in wound healing, looked at the effect of Matrixyl on sheets of  skin cells in a dish.

His research, published in the journal  Molecular Pharmaceutics, found that when concentrations were high enough, the  chemical hugely boosted the amount of collagen made.Collagen is a protein that gives skin its  strength and elasticity

The Reading University  professor said:  ‘Our research shows that products with Matrixyl will have skincare benefits.  Studies like this  are very important for the  consumer, as cosmetic  companies rarely publish their  work so that rivals don’t copy their  products.

Matrixyl – which is a peptide, or protein fragment – stimulates the collagen  factories from within the skin.
Chief scientist at Olay, Dr Sian Morris, said  the company’s ‘studies have shown consistently the abilities of Matrixyl to  help reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve visible firmness and provide  younger-looking skin’.

These brands have matrixyl in the formulation:

Olay Regenerist Daily 3 Point Treatment Cream
L'Oreal Collagen Filler
St Ives Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturiser
Skin Doctors Cosmeceuticals 2600 Retanew -Retinol Wrinkle Reduuction
