Cara has begged me all along not to change a thing in the CP Accelerator. Well, whoopsie, I did! I’ve added the active Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9 to it and with good reason. Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9 is a powerful active that firms, plumps and stimulates new collagen fiber synthesis.
I just started adding it to the formula a couple of weeks ago and clients who can’t live without their CP Accelerator are already contacting me asking why the texture is so much nicer… well, that’s all well and good – but wait until you see the difference it makes in your skin! Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9 takes an average of 4 months before you start seeing results.
How Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9 works:
The starting point for how acetyl tetrapeptide-9 works is the role played by things called proteoglycans, which slow with age. These are protein-sugar (glycosaminoglycan chains) complexes that are involved with collagen fibers. Acetyl tetrapeptide-9 targets one in particular, called lumican that is involved in both the synthesis of collagen fibrils and their organization into functional fibers, ensuring the integrity of the extra-cellular matrix. Acetyl tetrapeptide-9 boots collagen synthesis to natural levels. It has been proven both in clinical studies, as well as human trials, to help increase the amount of collagen that is naturally produced by your body, resulting in firmer and plumper skin. In clinical studies, the best results from using acetyl tetrapeptide-9 were realized after about 4 months of treatment, and participants noted a dramatic increase in the firmness of their skin, as well as its elasticity.
We all just love products that firm our skin and plump it up! CP Accelerator was doing that very nicely without the addition of Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9; but now, it’s even better!
