Lipotec has confirmed the efficacy of Eyeseryl peptide (INCI: Acetyl Tetrapeptide-5 (and) Water (aqua) (and) Butylene Glycol) to improve appearance of the eye contour by minimizing the presence of baggy eyes, dark circles and skin damage in that area.
According to the company, research has suggested that men are more prone to lipid-related eyebags than women due to fat protrusion, though the peptide works to reduce damage for both men and women.
In a new study, male volunteers aged 30–65 with baggy eyes applied a cream containing 1% of the ingredient in a solution on one eye contour and a placebo cream on the other twice a day for 28 days. The volume of puffiness under the eyes decreased by 29.7% after 28 days, and the appearance visibly improved.
In addition to the assessment, 90% of volunteers rated the treatment positively and said they would be likely to recommend the product as an efficient anti-eyebag treatment.
