Does Olay Regenerist Amino-
Peptide Complex Really Work?

olay-regenerist-amino-peptide-complex-reviewCurrent anti-aging products and procedures are effective, but often times these procedures may irritate the skin. For example, dermabrasion removes old skin cells and stimulates the growth of new skin. Likewise, chemical peels remove the surface layer of the skin. The newly revealed skin is more susceptible to environmental dangers such as UV rays and pollutants. So when a new product promises to work without irritation, it is not surprising that it generates so much popularity. Olay reports that women who used a product with Amino-Peptide Complex showed new skin regeneration 25% faster than untreated skin. But does Olay Regenerist Amino-Peptide Complex really work?

Olay Regenerist Amino-Peptide Complex Review

According to Olay, The National Institutes of Health (NIH) concluded that one specific five-amino acid chain found in collagen helps to signal cells to produce new skin. Although these peptides cannot penetrate the skin on its own, when attached to a fatty acid such as palmitoyl, they can be absorbed by the skin. A search on the topic in would generate many results supporting the popularity of research in skin regenerating via peptides. Olay Regenerist uses a patented formula which includes an amino-peptide complex to help accelerate the speed of skin regeneration. Furthermore, in a study consisting of 190 women (ages 35-60), those who used Olay Regenerist noticed a decrease in the appearance of facial wrinkles and skin dryness. So does Olay Regenerist Amino-Peptide Complex really work? The answer is yes! While these results seem appealing, can the same result be achieved with other peptide-containing products?

To answer this, first, let’s revisit the technology behind peptide-based anti-aging technology. As we age, our skin experiences an increase in dryness due to hormonal changes and the nature of aging. Peptides act as messengers within the skin, participating in the production of collagen and elastin fibers. In matured skin, this communication system is less effective, resulting in a decrease in collagen production (which causes the facial wrinkles and grooves). The peptide Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-3 (Matrixyl) has been shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles after four months of applications. So does peptide work in the anti-aging goal? Yes! Is Olay Regenerist the only product to provide this technology? No.

Benefits of peptide based anti-aging products:

  • Irritation free alternative: A peptide based anti-aging product does not cause inflammation which is often observed in products that produce harmful chemical reactions or mechanical stress to the skin.
  • A safe alternative to Botox: Peptides can be used to substitute the use of Botox. For example, the peptide Argireline is used as a topical alternative to Botox. Imagine that, no facial paralysis.
  • Benefits of multiple ingredients: Peptide based anti-aging products are often incorporated with other ingredients to increase the benefit of the product.

In searching for peptide-based anti-aging cream, look for products that contain Matrixyl (Palmitoyl) as one of its ingredients. In addition, make sure these products contain moisturizing and antioxidant benefits (Vitamin C, Retinol, Peptides, Growth Factors, and Alpha Hydroxy Acids).
