See the below actives to know why.
Also, you will know why this cream is not sticky or tacky? If the neck cream is tacky, it might be very difficult to use specially in the Summer.
Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5 & 6:
It is used as a skin conditioning agent and has biological activity. It has been shown to have active anti-aging properties through in vivo and in vitro studies. It works by stimulating the production of the proteins Laminin V, Collagens IV, VII and XVII and Integrin β. These proteins play a vital role in connecting and maintaining the structure of the dermis and the epidermis of the skin, to produce visible results.
It has ability to communicate with skin cells and boost collagen production. Young-looking, firm skin isn't possible without collagen, and the older your skin gets, the less collagen it produces.
The regulation of collagen fibres is controlled by a number of molecules one of which is called decorin. As we get older, decorin activity declines. The new peptide, tripeptide-10 citrulline, is supposed to mimic decorin so that the collagen fibres are fooled into thinking they should still be productive.
Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate:
The commercial name is Syn®-Ake. It is an anti-wrinkle active compound based on a synthetic tripeptide that mimics the effect of Waglerin 1, a peptide that is found in the venom of the Temple Viper, Tropidolaemus wagleri. The Syn®-Ake peptide acts by reducing muscle cell contraction, smoothing mimic wrinkles in a short period, and is reversible. It is useful in anti-aging products and wrinkle treatment products, especially those targeting expression lines.
The hydrophobic nature of Cholesterol helps for irritated, dry & chapped skin and for dry, damaged hair. Used for increasing the water retention and barrier properties of skin and hair. Restores barrier properties of damaged skin.
It resembles the structure of the lipid barrier the skin. Helps to improve the appearance of aged skin by deep moisturizing effects and supply of ceramides (skin-identical lipids). Anti-aging and anti-wrinkle.
It is a natural constituent of ceramides in the hydrolipidic skin film. In its free form in the epidermis, it also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is therefore a key player in skin homeostasis. Normalization of the lipid matrix and lipid film. Antibacterial activity. Anti-inflammatory activity.
3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid:
This modified Vitamin C has better stability and rapidly penetrates into the skin while regular Vitamin C is easily degraded. This has same benefits to the skin like Vitamin C for Stimulating collagen production, Lightening & brightening skin, Treating hyperpigmentation and Sun damage protection. And it even has some additional effects, not observed in pure ascorbic acid, such as promoting nerve cell growth or reducing chemotherapy damage. Finally, the slower release also ensures that no toxic effects are observed when using this vitamin C derivative.
Vitamin B-3, 5 and 6:
Niacinamide (B-3): It has been found to have soothing activity which may be useful for blemished skin and can improve the appearance of aged, hyper-pigmented and photo-damaged skin. It reduces appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Panthenol (B-5): It penetrates readily into skin & hair. Good moisturizing & softening properties. It improves the appearance of irritated skin and is often used as rejuvenating agent and gives the hair moisture & shine and reduces split ends.
Pyridoxine HCl (B-6): It is thought to be a preventative for dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis, according to Wikipedia, to have anti-bacterial and antioxidant properties when applied topically to the skin.
It provides strong antioxidant activity, also moisturizing effects and may improve the appearance of aged skin. Vitamin E has also been found to provide soothing properties and make the skin look younger.
A very powerful antioxidant or free radical scavenger. Coenzyme Q10 and Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate) are the only oil-soluble antioxidants naturally present in the epidermis but readily depleted by UV-radiation. Both actives protect the skin from the damaging effects of UV light. Topically applied, this can penetrate the cell layers of the skin and may attenuate the depth of wrinkles due to photo aging, as well as epithelial cell turnover. It provides strong antioxidant activity, also moisturizing effects and may improve the appearance of aged skin. Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate) has also been found to provide soothing properties and make the skin look younger.
