As you look through Timeless Skin Care’s line of beauty products, you might wonder about the safety of Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000. We understand that a consumer might want to inquire about these ingredients, because they aren’t common and they’re not easy-to-pronounce plant names. We want to assure you that Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000, which are two potent ingredients in our most popular serums, are safe for inclusion in anti-aging skincare.
What Are Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000?
The Matrixyl in our top-selling Matrixyl serum, and the Matrixyl 3000 we use in our eye cream and other products, is an anti-wrinkle formula developed by a cosmetic manufacture for incorporation in anti-wrinkle skincare creams. These ingredients are found in creams as well as in moisturizers, serums, cleansers, and lotions.
Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000 help to restore the skin’s metabolism and youthful properties by training the skin to produce its own stores of collagen. The ingredients include two polypeptides, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, and palmitoyl oligopeptide to give consumers a new super peptide that plumps the skin and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
Are Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000 Safe?
Timeless Skin Care’s Matrixyl Serum and Matrixyl 3000 are safe to use on the skin. It’s a favorite ingredient, in fact, in our natural skincare products because it so effective, and it doesn’t have any side effects.
Unlike other ingredients that irritate the skin or use drastic measures to alter the skin’s functionality, Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000 works with the skin to naturally encourage it to function as it should. When you’re looking for a gentle but effective way to make your skin look smoother, fuller, and more youthful, you can feel good about turning to our anti-aging skincare products that contain Matrixyl and Matrixyl 3000.
Quality Most Certainly Counts
When it comes to any kind of skin care product your regimen, it is always in your best interests to use products that are of the highest quality. This is because high-quality products often yield the best results and are less likely to have harmful side effects.
Because some of our customers ask, “Is matrixyl safe during pregnancy,” we like to remind them that Timeless Skin Care only offers safe and effective skin care products that are both natural and effective. Women who are pregnant can use our line of products without worry. When it comes to matrixyl specifically, remember that the product is a natural one. Even better is the fact that matrixyl is free of parabens, which we’re sure you’ll love.
Another reason we recommend you buy matrixyl serum is that it has more active ingredients and fewer chemicals. Some of the ingredients found in the product include:
As you can see, we do our best to steer clear of ingredients that have questionable properties, no matter how effective they might seem to be. After all, what’s the use in having clear, radiant skin if it comes at the potential expense of your health? What’s more is the fact that the product lasts for a solid two years after you buy it.
Safety Also Depends on You
Something else to think about when it comes to the overall safety of our product (and any other product for that matter) is that you have to follow the directions to remain wholly safe. Using a product in a way in which it’s not intended or failing to follow directions can result in unintended consequences. With matrixyl, you simply have to squeeze out two or three drops on your fingertips and rub them over freshly cleansed skin twice a day.
Still wondering “Is Matrixyl safe?” The answer is yes. Even Matrixyl pregnancy use is perfectly safe, as long as you use the product as directed. To illustrate this point, here is a detailed look at the list of ingredients in our Matrixyl 3000 and Matrixyl Synthe’6 serums.
Matrixyl 3000 contains the following:
Matrixyl 3000: Matrixyl is a peptide (a molecule made up of amino acids). It assists your skin in making new collagen to repair skin damage. While Matrixyl alone is effective at reducing wrinkles and boosting collagen production, Matrixyl 3000 is even more effective. It’s actually quite different in structure than the original Matrixyl and is more effective at regulating skin cell activity.
Hyaluronic Acid: This ingredient is highly moisturizing and can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. Imagine the hydration benefits it provides to your skin!
Water: Used in virtually every imaginable type of skincare product, water is one of the safest cosmetic ingredients out there.
Aloe Barbadensis: Aloe vera has anti-inflammatory properties and has been used to reduce common skin problems (including acne, eczema and psoriasis).
Glycerin: This common skincare ingredient is a humectant, which means it draws water from the air into your outermost layer of skin. It is highly valued in personal care products because of its moisturizing abilities. It can also prevent loss of moisture from the skin.
Benzylalcohol: This ingredient has antibacterial and antiseptic properties, which is why it’s used as a preservative in many skincare products. It is one of the least sensitizing preservatives available, which means it is less likely to irritate the skin than other common skincare product preservatives.
Dehydroacetic Acid: To further protect our serum from microorganism growth, we add a small amount of dehydroacetic acid. This ingredient is a bactericide and fungicide that kills microorganisms and extends the shelf life of our serum.
Matrixyl Synthe’6 contains the same ingredients as Matrixyl 3000, except for the Matrixyl component. Matrixyl Synthe’6 stimulates six skin matrix constituents to maximize wound repair and collagen remodeling.

For such a popular skin care ingredient, there’s a lot going on with HA, so beware of love at first use! There are more layers to using HA than the simple equation, Dry Skin + Hyaluronic Acid = Hydrated Skin. In some conditions, the intended results can actually backfire. Think the opposite of clear, dewy, plump skin. So how do you use HA properly?
First - Debunking Common Myths about HA
Hyaluronic Acid is not actually an acid, like glycolic or salicylic acid that exfoliates the skin. HA is a complex sugar, known as a polysaccharide, that occurs naturally in the body providing hydration for our joints, hair, eyes and especially the skin.
