Palmitoyl tripeptide-1, also known as pal-GHK, is a synthetic peptide with the chemical formula C16H32N6O5. It is a modified version of the natural peptide GHK, which occurs naturally in our skin. This modified peptide was developed to enhance the production of collagen and other important proteins to promote the overall health and appearance of the skin.
The core description of this product is that it stimulates collagen production. Collagen is an important protein responsible for maintaining the structure and firmness of the skin. However, as we age, our body’s natural collagen production declines, leading to the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1 effectively addresses this by signaling the fibroblasts in the skin to produce more collagen. This in turn helps restore skin’s elasticity and firmness, reducing visible signs of aging and promoting a youthful complexion.
