What You’ll See On The Ingredient List Variations of acetyl hexapeptide, acetyl octapeptide, palmitoyl oligopeptide, palmitoyl tetrapeptide, palmitoyl hexapeptide or others.
Why Your Skin Needs It Peptides are amino acids that help increase the production of natural collagen and elastin, which are essential building blocks for youthful-looking skin. Strengthening the skin’s dermal matrix helps smooth the look of lines and wrinkles and help skin look and feel firmer, more resilient, and taut.
The Clinique Expertise Repairing the look of lines and wrinkles isn’t a task for just one miracle ingredient. For more optimal de-aging power, we combine peptides with other wonder workers. On the most-wanted list: Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum combines acetyl-hexapeptide-8 with whey protein, salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to help visibly smooth, lift, and brighten skin.
What Our Scientist Says “We are always researching peptide variations as we continue to innovate. They are vital to helping increase skin’s natural collagen and elastin production, which play a critical role in helping skin look smoother, less lined, and more lifted,” says Dr. Tom Mammone, Vice President, Skin Physiology and Pharmacology.
