Strivectin - how it works

Strivectin is a skin cream, not a "filler" and professes to improve wrinkles because it contains pentapeptides. Peptides are protein fractions of aminoacids the stimulate production of new collagen. There is good science on the biological effect of these protein fractions showing they can improve collagen content in the skin and improve wrinkles clinically. There are quite a few other over the counter cosmetic products that contain these peptides.
