Poptide™, is a cyclic peptide that modulates skintropy, the chaos present in our skin caused by aging and external factors. Aging is the main reason for endoplasmatic reticulum stress and chaperones’ decrease, thus the appearance of misfolded proteins.
Poptide™ proved to minimize misfolded proteins by increasing the main chaperones of ER, and so the unfolded Protein Response. This results in breaking the Wrinkles Daily Cycle (evening wrinkles are more pronounced than morning ones), where Poptide™ is able to improve its appearance cycle by cycle.
