You may have heard the term “freezing” peptide and often questioned if this was cold or possibly stored at a sub-zero temperature to maintain its integrity. However, this type of peptide can actually “freeze” or inhibit muscle contractions to reduce the appearance of wrinkles!
What is a Freezing Peptide?
Freezing peptides are also known as neurotransmitter peptides and the primary function is to inhibit acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. In other words, these peptides inhibit muscle contraction, making them beneficial when correcting the appearance of mimic wrinkles, which may become deeper over time. Mimic wrinkles are also considered facial expression wrinkles – frown lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet, the “11” lines, and lines around the lips.
Acetylcholine is an organic molecule and ester of acetic acid and choline. It is one of the several neurotransmitters in the automatic nervous system that aids muscle contraction. Since freezing peptides suppress acetylcholine, they produce a similar effect as Botox and it’s relative injectables. The main difference is that unlike the Botox injectable, which paralyzes the muscle, these peptides prevent the message telling the muscle to contract from ever being received.

Eye Revitalizer – Summertime Friendly Eye Care
During the summer months we tend to have schedules filled with many activities and are constantly on the go. It is important to consider making changes to your skin care routine, including your eye care.
Changing to products that have a lighter sensation on the skin is usually the shift we see, as we want to feel hydrated but not over-moisturized. Due to busy schedules, we want products that leave the skin healthy, glowing, and radiant, but without a lot of steps. Eye Revitalizer is the perfect solution!
It has a gel-like consistency that quickly absorbs into the delicate eye tissue, introducing potent peptides that instantly firm tissue, and cooling botanical extracts to soothe. The hint of shimmer gently reflects light from dark circles due to tired eyes.
Incorporate into Your Summer Routine
Use Eye Revitalizer every morning by gently applying one pump around the eye area. Throughout the busy day, when you are feeling tired and needing a quick pick-me-up, apply another pump directly over your makeup.
