CAP-PEPTIDE-5-LUXFACIEM-SKIN-CARE-BIOTECHNOLOGICAL
Biotechnological innovation for your skin

What is CAP PEPTIDE 5?

CAP Peptide 5 is a patented synthetic peptide, exclusively found in Luxfaciem Skin Renew®. It was discovered in the course of research on pathologies associated with cell damage caused by oncologic disease, and bio-technologically developed with the goal of improving skin health.

CAP Peptide 5 fights all of the pillars of ageing, generating an aggregate effect that translates into significant improvement in skin health, and a noticeable anti-ageing effect.

How was it discovered?

Over 20 years ago, a well-known group of scientists from the CSIC, began research on rare disorders and pathologies related with cell damage caused by oncologic diseases in the lungs. By chance, they discovered that there was a protein that showed relevant activity on oxidative stress, and that could repair damaged cells and revert cell damage in different organs and tissues.

The researchers realized that the sequence of this peptide was the same as a protein in the telomerase complex, with the biological function of repairing the telomere, activating cell survival and increasing the level of antioxidant enzymes that reduce oxidative stress and enable cells to remain healthy and live longer. It is the only peptide with the capacity to restore telomerase function.

In 2016, the consensus of a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals; dermatologists, oncologists, allergists, biologists and aesthetic doctors, in collaboration with the CSIC, decide to make the use of CAP Peptide 5 for skin care accessible to everyone through a dermo-cosmetic product, due to its powerful biological actions on the aging.
Effect on the 5 pillars of aging

How does CAP Peptide 5 work?

Maintains telomere length

Protects skin cells (fibroblasts) preventing their death.

Protects collagen

Maintains endogenous collagen and prevents its degradation.

Improves hydration and elasticity of the skin

Decreases the depth and thickness of wrinkles.

Anti-inflammatory effect

It keeps the skin healthy and favors the formation of new cells.

Gran poder antioxidante

Aumenta el nivel de enzimas antioxidantes en la piel como la Catalasa y la SOD.

The 5 pillars of skin ageing

As skin ages, certain events naturally take place that modify its composition, moisturization, presence of wrinkles, elasticity, etc.

Within this physiological ageing process are the five fundamental pillars that CAP Peptide 5 acts on.

The 5 pillars of skin ageing

As skin ages, certain events naturally take place that modify its composition, moisturization, presence of wrinkles, elasticity, etc.

Within this physiological ageing process are the five fundamental pillars that CAP Peptide 5 acts on.

Length of the

Telomeres

Throughout life, skin cells divide to replace those that have aged. In this cell division process, the length of the telomeres that protect genetic matter is shortened, giving rise to the degeneration and death of skin cells. Telomere length is directly proportional to the ageing of the cells.

Free radicals

Oxidative stress

In the process of ageing, either due to external factors such as UV radiation, or internal physiological factors, the skin’s oxidation level is altered, leading to the accumulation of free radicals. These are substances capable of oxidizing proteins and other molecules, altering their natural, healthy function.

Moisturization of the skin

Collagen

With age, skin loses its elasticity due to deficiencies in the composition of collagen and elastin, proteins that are key to keeping skin young and moisturized. Marked effects on the depth and size of wrinkles are directly related with this process.

Accumulation of

B-Gal

An increase in the concentration of beta-galactosidase (b-Gal) occurs as cells age. An increase of b-Gal is associated with dysfunction or deficient function of cellular lysosomes (organelles containing important enzymes that regulate a number of cellular processes). B-Gal is considered an important senescence marker.

Reduction of

Stem cells

Skin is a tissue in constant cellular renewal. The development and differentiation of skin cells originates with pluripotent stem cells found in the deep layers of the skin. As skin ages, the number of stem cells diminishes.

Healthy skin

Following these studies and discovery of the benefits of CAP Peptide 5 for cellular damage repair and reversion, the idea emerged to use this active ingredient in the prevention and protection of the body’s largest organ, skin, which is subject to constant aggressions that cause extreme cellular damage and consequently, skin ageing.
