Pentapharm’s new peptide complex Syn-Tacks was unveiled at In-Cosmetics 2007 Paris. The new active ingredient is a highly effective peptide complex for anti-aging treatments to preserve and redesign the Dermal Epidermal Junction (DEJ). Syn-Tacks combines two different peptides and stimulates Laminin V, collagen types IV, VII and XVII and Integrin all at once. This activity achieves the utmost anti-aging benefit for the skin, according to the company. In vivo data show in different studies a significant effect on cellular cohesion and skin tone and elasticity. The product was also very well received and rated by means of an evaluation questionnaire.
