INCI Water & Butylene Glycol, Acetyl Tetrapeptide - 5
As we age, skin loses its elasticity and muscles weaken which can cause loose skin to accumulate around the eyes, forming folds in the eyelids. Fat, which cushions the eyes in their sockets moves forward out of the ocular cavities and accumulates in bulging bags around the eyelids.The other major reason for puffy eyes is water accumulation, known as edema, which can be caused by poor lymphatic circulation and increased capillary permeability.
Eyeseryl is a tetrapeptide with antiedema properties with proven efficacy in reducing puffy eyebags in as little as 15 days. It can be incorporated in cosmetic formulations such as gels, serums, and emulsions where a reduction of puffiness under the eyes is desired.Studies were performed with Eyeseryl at a very low concentration 1 in order to define a minimum concentration for which an effect could be measured. Both eyebag volume and dark circles were moderately, but significantly reduced.
Up to 10% of the solution can be incorporated into formulations to obtain significant eyebagreducing activity.Incorporation
