Collagen, a fibrous protein with a characteristic triple helical structure, is the most prominent component of the extracellular matrix (ECM). Collagen is responsible for mechanical strength and elasticity of skin and therefore its degradation with aging eventually leads to wrinkling. One important target to prevent wrinkle formation is to reduce collagen degradation and increase its supply. This process can be reversed to some degree by stimulating skin cells to make collagen. Stimulating collagen synthesis in aged skin can therefore reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture.
DermaPep™ A510 is a peptide fragment derived from collagen type I with N-terminal being modified with palmitoyl group in order to enhance its permeability into skin. DermaPep™ A510 was shown to stimulate the synthesis of collagen type I, IV and glycosaminoglycan (GAG). For this reason, DermaPep™ A510 will provide elasticity to skin and reduce the aging effects.
