Should I use Matrixyl 3000 or Matrixyl Synthe 6?

Should I use Matrixyl 3000 or Matrixyl Synthe 6?

The Matrixyl peptides have been getting a lot of attention in skincare circles, with people wondering which of them will work best for each skin type. Some even recommend combining the Matrixyl peptides to get a bigger benefit, since each does separate things. Let’s talk about the difference between Matrixyl 3000 and Matrixyl Synthe 6, because while there are some overlapping benefits, the two compounds do very different things.

Matrixyl 3000 Benefits

When you apply a Matrixyl 3000 serum as part of your anti-aging skincare routine, you replenish the natural peptide that signals to your body to produce collagen and elastin, two important compounds for your skin. That leads to the following benefits:

  • Wrinkle reduction
  • Increased firmness
  • Decreased sagging
  • Improved moisture retention

Matrixyl Synthe 6 Benefits

Matrixyl Synthe 6 serum stimulates the synthesis of six major ingredients in your skin’s health, including several types of collagen that are specifically beneficial, as well as fibronectin and hyaluronic acid. The result is that skin is built up from the inside, becoming healthier and smoothing wrinkles out.

The visible benefits are similar to Matrixyl 3000, but the mechanism of action is totally different, based more on your skin’s overall improvement in a variety of ways.

Which Product Provides Better Benefits?

This question really doesn’t apply, because while the visual effects of each serum’s benefits overlap, they work on distinct parts of the skin. That means you can combine them for a more effective and more assertive skin care strategy. There are even some products that put the peptides together to achieve a synergistic effect. If you are looking for just one Matrixyl product, then the question should be which goals you have—do you want to encourage the skin to strengthen and rebuild itself, or are you trying to increase elasticity and smooth wrinkles over?
