Tripeptide-10 citrulline is a decorin-like tetrapeptide and a signaling peptide. These peptides trigger signaling that modulates dermal extracellular melanogenesis (stimulate collagen and reduce fine lines and wrinkles).
Benefits of Tripeptide-10 Citrulline:
- Stimulate collagen: decorin interacts with the collagen present in our and influences collagen fibrillogenesis. As we age, the decorin in our body reduces and results in disrupted collagen fibres along with the lose in the tensile strength of the skin. Tripeptide-10 citrulline can act as a substitute for decorin and regulate collagen fibrillogenesis and to influence the diameter of collagen fibres, making them thinner and more uniform.
- It also increase the skin’s suppleness because of better collagen fibres. Skin collagen quality is more important than skin collagen quantity.
- Anti-wrinkle and firming agent: tripeptide-10 citrulline can also reduce fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen.
- It may help with tranepidermal water loss: there are studies showing that tripeptide-10 citrulline may help with transepidermal water loss, but not fully proven.
Who all can use Tripeptide-10 Citrulline?
Tripeptide-10 Citrulline is suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin and skin of colour.
