Hello!

Dr. Pickart, I was wondering if you've heard of the ingredients in this OHT Peptide 3 Cream product and had any opinions about their efficacy in treating skin ageing?
It's a (very expensive) peptide-based product that promises dramatic results, but I know nothing about the science (if any) behind it..
Many thanks in advance..

This looks like everything in the kitchen that was put into a pot for dinner.

The serious problem is that there seem to be no published studies mix of ingredients in the cream. Mixing things rarely works.


Ingredients:
Purified Water, Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, Pentylene Glycol, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Glycerin & Polysorbate 20 & Steareth 20 & Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, Sesame Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, PPG-12/SMDI Copolymer, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate & Tribehenin & Ceramide 2 & PEG-10 Rapeseed Sterol & Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Glycerin, PEG-100 Stearate, Glycerol Stearate, Sweet Almond (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis) Oil, Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract, PEG-8, Glucosamine HCl, Algae (Laminaria Digitata) Extract, Yeast Extract, Urea, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hydrolyzed Wheat Starch, Wheat Germ (Triticum Vulgare) Extract, Hydrocotyl (Centella Asiatica) Extract, Coneflower (Echinacea Purpurea) Extract, Butylene Glycol, Polyglyceryl Methacrylate, Propylene Glycol, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Licorice Extract, Rosemary (Rosemarinus Officinalis) Leaf Extract, Chlorella Vulgaris Extract, Coralline Officinalis Extract, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Stearic Acid, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Squalane, Peppermint Oil, Tocopherol, Dimetyl Sulfone, Retinyl Palmitate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer, Xanthan Gum, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Polysorbate 60, Tromethamine, Disodium EDTA.

So basically - to make room for so many ingredients you don't get a high enough concentration of any one thing for it to be effective, right?

Would any of these ingredients compete with copper in the receptors?

thanks so much for your input!

Cells cannot respond to everything at once and most of the ingredients will have little or no effect.

The Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyltaurate Copolymer might be a problem.
