What is snap 8 peptide?
SNAP-8 is an octrapeptide that is scientifically known as Acetyl Glutamyl Heptapeptide-1 (say that five times fast). This combination of 8 amino acids is created in a laboratory and acts as a muscle contraction inhibitor. We’ll spare you the scientific jargon and put it simply: SNAP-8 reduces the depth of fine lines and wrinkles by inhibiting the contraction of muscles used for common facial expressions. Particularly effective for forehead and around-the-eye lines, SNAP-8 is a safer, more economical and milder alternative to Botox.
SNAP-8 is scientifically and reasonablely designed of anti-wrinkle active ingredients of polypeptide. It has a similar role to Areginine Essence and has become one of the most popular raw materials around the world for upscale anti-wrinkle cosmetics.Anti-wrinkles caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, decreasing neuronal excitability by SNARE complex destabilisation.
Mechanism of action
SNAP-8 is an octapeptide (an amino acid) that prevents the release of a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contraction. SNAP-8 is a mimic of the N-Terminal end of SNAP-25 which competes with SNAP-25 for a position in the SNARE complex, and therefore modulates its formation. If the SNARE complex is destabilised, the neurotransmitters will not be effectively released, therefore muscle contraction is attenuated, preventing the formation of lines and wrinkles.
Topically, it targets the same wrinkle formation mechanism as Botulinum Toxin (Botox) but at a much more affordable, safer and pain free way.
Snap 8 benefits
- Snap 8reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression.
- Snap-8 is effective against the development of new wrinkles.
- Decrease the depth of facial wrinkles caused by the contraction of muscles from facial expressions, especially near the eyes and on the forehead.
- Snap 8 peptide is a safer, cheaper, and milder alternative to Botulinum Toxin, topically targeting the same wrinkle formation mechanism in a very different way.
