Ingredient Spotlight: Eyeliss®
The Latest Ingredient in Eye Creams
We all know reading the label on a product box can be extremely intimidating these days. Every ingredient has a long, scary name and it’s hard to tell the difference between good and bad ingredients. Not to mention, with new products and ingredients hitting the market at increasing rates, it can be hard to stay on top of the latest and greatest option for your skin. So, we thought we’d make it easier on you and give you the rundown on Eyeliss®, one of the latest ingredients used in eye creams.
Eyeliss® is a tri-peptide that is used to effectively address the problem of under eye puffiness. Basically, peptides are building blocks of the body (like proteins) that are an important part of the skin and its function. They also affect the production of collagen (which lessens as we age). Eyeliss is considered a “tri-peptide” because it is made up of three peptides, Herperidin Methyl Chalcone, Dipeptide Valyl-Tryptophane, and Lipopeptide.
Again, don’t be intimidated by the names and let’s break them down one by one.
Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone is derived from citrus fruits and it helps to strengthen capillaries and veins. Also, it works to improve lymphatic drainage circulation which tones the delicate under eye area and relieves that puffy appearance.
Dipeptide Valyl-Tryptophane is also a peptide and it aides in the drainage of fluid that collects under the eye that creates the dreaded bags and puffiness.
Lipopeptide Pal-GQPR is another peptide that decreases inflammation, improves skin elasticity and firmness, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.
With these three powerful peptides working together, drainage in the eye area will be improved, capillary fragility is reduced, and irritation and skin slackening is minimized. As the years go by, the thin skin around the eyes loses fat and elasticity causing the skin to sag. However, the firmness and elasticity of the skin will be increased when these ingredients are included in your eye cream.
