Optoderm Collastin Serum
A potent, multifunctional, phospholipid-based serum for total collagen & elastin care and repair
Powered by PenetrX, with proprietary vectorised copper peptide & hydroxyproline, pro-collagen & elastin amino acids, elastin spring fragment peptide, phospholipids, ribose, our copper-zinc-magnesium complex and three further bio-peptides, for total collagen care and repair. Vegan friendly.
Mature skin, pre-mature ageing
Collagen and elastin production
How to use:
Collastin is a concentrated serum, so shake before use and flush the pipette. Apply AM & PM, as required, after cleansing. A single drop goes a long way – we suggest adrop per cheek and chin and two drops on forehead and neck. Avoid direct eye contact. Allow the serum to absorb for a couple of minutes after application and then apply other creams as required. Works best when layered with OptoDerm Balance, Revive or Rejuvenate. If you are using together with other serums we suggest this serum is added last. Do not apply simultaneously with Vitamin C serums/creams containing pure L-Ascorbic Acid, or TiO2-based sun screen products, since these may chelate the copper peptide and render it useless. OptoDerm Vitamin C Serum contains SAP and is safe to use with Collastin.
Vectorised copper peptide, Cu(GHK)2
Collastin contains a number of proprietary, patent-pending actives:
Vectorised copper peptide, Cu(GHK)2 – the third generation of the well known standard for wound healing and skin remodeling.
Vectorised hydroxyproline – an important component of the collagen triple helix, for which the primary structure is repeats of GXY, where X and Y are proline and hydroxyproline.
VGVAPG – a matrikine, ‘messenger’ peptide specifically involved in repairing age related skin damage. VGVAPG is the “spring fragment”, repeated six times in the whole elastin molecule and potentiates fibroblast activity in macromolecules synthesis.
Three additional collagen boosting biopeptides. Whilst traditional anti-ageing approaches focus mostly on dermal collagen type I, these biopeptides focus on collagen III and on the collagens of the dermal-epidermal junction (DEJ), especially on collagen IV, VII and XVII, the so-called anchoring collagens, essential for optimal skin function and firmness:
– Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 (has a significant effect on collagen III)
– Tetradecyl Aminobutyroylvalylaminobutyric Urea Trifluoroacetate, and
– Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5 Diaminobutylroyl Hydroxythreonine.
Our proprietary copper-zinc-magnesium complex that provides essential minerals required for collagen and elastin production, as well as the elimination of AGE’s.
The essential amino acids, proline, glycine and lysine (which play a major role in the production of collagens and elastin), that the body is not able to produce by itself.
