Acetyl Hexapeptide-3

A synthetic peptide also known by its trademark name Argireline. It is manufactured by the Spanish company Lipotec, which claims it has effects similar to botox. Acetyl hexapeptide-3 purportedly inhibits the release of neurotransmitters, relaxing facial tension, leading to a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. There are no clinical studies to substantiate these claims, and no research on its safety.
