Researchers have revealed for the first time that a peptide in a leading beauty product can penetrate the tough stratum corneum barrier of the skin.

A study between No7, the UK’s number one skincare brand and the University of Nottingham, lead by Dr David Scurr, used leading-edge technology to track the penetration of No7’s peptide blend Matrixyl 3000+™ following topical application to the skin surface. The findings offer an improved understanding of the bioavailability of topically applied peptides and provides further evidence for the efficacy of wrinkle targeting peptides.
