Peptique bills itself as a “peptide facelift in a bottle” and that it is the “wrinkle cream that shocked the world”. These are quite heady claims and we will have to look closer at Peptique to see if it can live up to those claims. According to Peptique’s website, scientists at the 20th World Congress of Dermatology (held in 2002 according to a web search) discovered a formulation including a tri-peptide that works almost instantly at eliminating wrinkles. This peptide maximizes and optimizes the natural cell turnover in facial skin.

Peptique is sold on a 30-day free trial basis meaning your credit card will not be processed for 30 day after you receive the product. Peptique retails for $79.95 for a six-month supply but the company currently offers a two-for-one special so customers get a years-worth of Peptique for that price. This extremely low cost gives us pause for concern about the strength and quality of the ingredients. Clinically-proven ingredients do tend to cost more than those found in cheap moisturizers and treatments.

Product Details

For all of the marketing hype on the Peptique website, there is very little actual information about the ingredients in the product. There is an entire page dedicated to clinical studies that looks promising at first but a closer study raises questions. The page states that Peptique “contains peptides from Matrixyl” and “contains peptides from Matrixyl 3000″ but it does not actually state that the product contains either Matrixyl or Matrixyl 3000. The clinical studies and before and after pictures relate to testing done on Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000. There is no indication of clinical testing on Peptique itself, which we find disappointing. The marketing claims lead us to wonder if there is really any substance to this product at all.

If Peptique did include ingredients like Matrixyl 3000, that would make the claims carry more weight. Matrixyl 3000 is an ingredient we look for in advanced anti-wrinkle formulations as it penetrates deeply and stimulates the body’s production of collagen, which depletes as we age. We prefer skin care products that pair Matrixyl 3000 with other peptides like Argiriline, which works to relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles, and hyaluronic acid which deeply hydrates the skin.

The Good

  • Can purchase directly from the manufacturer.
  • May contain peptides.

The Bad

  • No ingredient list available.
  • May not contain Matrixyl 3000 or other effective ingredients.
  • No clinical trials presented to support the product’s claim.
  • Very low price may make the quality of the ingredients suspect.

The Bottom Line

There are many skin care products on the market today that claim to be breakthroughs in scientific research and claim to be just as good as surgical intervention. However, when we look at many of these products closely, they simply do not have the quality ingredients to back up their claims. We cannot even determine that much with Peptique as the company does not list any of their ingredients. Many consumers feel that it is important to know what is in the products that they are applying to their skin. If you are looking for an anti-wrinkle product with proven results and clinical research to back it up, you may wish to continue your search.

Nue Science Bottle

Top Wrinkle Cream for 2014: Revivasol

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Revivasol is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. By recommending lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, Revivasol has firmly placed their customers health first. We never see skin care companies doing this sort of marketing. In addition, scientifically-proven results on how the formula works says it all, and the Revivasol website provides ample proof. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the clinical studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Revivasol is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Revivasol Go



Vivexin

(Optional- For Enhanced Results): Vivexin

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
