Argireline, also known as Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, is an oligopeptide composed of six amino acids that mimics the N-terminus of SNAP-25 protein. As an anti-wrinkle active raw material peptide, it has become the world's most popular cosmetic raw material for anti-wrinkle. It is claimed to use Argireline ingredients for anti-wrinkle in various high-end cosmetics series. Its efficacy is comparable to that of type A botulinum toxin, but it avoids the disadvantages of botulinum toxin that must be injected and the cost of use is high.

How does Argireline work？
Argireline is a neurotransmitter inhibitory peptide that competes for the site of SNAP-25 in the vesicle complex, thereby affecting the formation of the complex. If the fusion vesicle complex is slightly unstable, the vesicles cannot effectively release neurotransmitters, resulting in weakened muscle contraction and preventing the formation of wrinkles.
The efficacy and application
- Reduce the depth of wrinkles caused by facial expression muscle contraction, especially on the forehead and around the eyes.
- It is a safer, cheaper and milder alternative to botulinum toxin, which acts on the wrinkle formation mechanism in a very different way.
- Add it into cosmetic formulations (such as emulsions, gels, serums) to achieve the ideal effect of removing deep wrinkles or wrinkles around the forehead or eyes.
Usage and dosage
Anti-wrinkle peptides can use Argireline powder as a product (the powder can be easily dissolved in water), or Argireline solution as a product (aqueous solution containing 0.5g/L of powder). Argireline solution can be added in the final stage of cosmetic production, and the preparation temperature must be lower than 40°C. Based on the concentration of the solution, 3-10% of the final product is recommended to achieve significant anti-wrinkle activity.
Storage and shelf life:
Store at 2-8°C sealed and protected from light. For long-term storage, it is best to refrigerate at minus 15-20°C.
