Acetyl Octapeptide-3

A synthetic peptide based on octapeptide-3, a peptide complex composed of the amino acids aspartic acid, glutamic acid, glutamine and methionine, also known as SNAP-8. Like all peptides, it is a moisturizer and a skin-repairing ingredient. When applied to the skin, peptides act as small messengers that initiate the skin cells to perform specific functions such as building collagen and elastin, and “directing” the skin to behave younger.
