What Is Argireline?

Acetyl hexapeptide-8, otherwise known as Argireline by its brand name, is a peptide that has received a lot of traction recently thanks to its Botox-like skin tightening effects. 

Argireline is practically a non-toxic synthetic ingredient with the ability to smoothen fine lines and wrinkles and contribute to more youthful-looking facial skin. Although we cannot expect the same results as with fillers or actual Botox injections, Argireline has surprisingly effective anti-aging properties.

The Science Behind Argireline

Due to the ability of Argireline to affect nerve-muscle communication, it can limit your facial muscle movement and decrease the expression or dynamic wrinkles. This Botox-like peptide has one of the most impressive wrinkle-filling and collagen-boosting abilities and can be used safely in many clean beauty routines.

Skincare Benefits of Argireline

There are many documented benefits of acetyl hexapeptide-8 in skincare, particularly for aging skin and skin with wrinkles and fine lines. Here are all of them:

Limits muscle movement

Acetyl hexapeptide-8 is perhaps the single anti-aging ingredient that compares to Botox in regards to limiting facial muscle movement. However, as opposed to Botox, it doesn’t need to be injected, but it’s applied topically. That makes Argireline one of the best non-invasive cosmeticsingredients for anyone that needs an anti-wrinkle effect without going under the knife.

Fades expression wrinkles

Due to Argireline’s ability to limit muscle movement, it can help you fade all the dynamic wrinkles around your mouth, forehead, and crow’s feet. So, if you suffer from wrinkles and fine lines, skincare products with acetyl hexapeptide-8 could be an excellent fit for your skin.

Promotes collagen production

Acetyl hexapeptide-8 is a peptide that has the power to boost collagen production and improve its functionality. As a result, your skin becomes firm, plump, and youthful.

Anti-aging and anti-wrinkle

All of the above benefits result in one overall effect – anti-wrinkle and anti-aging. Argireline is the latest trend that skincare enthusiasts call the “new Botox alternative” or “Botox in a bottle”. So, instead of subjecting yourself to invasive procedures, try acetyl hexapeptide-8 in your clean beauty skincare routine.

Skin moisturizing effect

Lastly, the last research-backed benefit of Argireline or acetyl hexapeptide-8 is moisture retention. Deep skin hydration and moisturization are crucial for healthy and young-looking skin. For this purpose, the water-binding properties of acetyl hexapeptide-8 are perfect!

Argireline Side Effects in Skincare

Acetyl hexapeptide-8 is a skincare ingredient that can be used perfectly safely and without irritation when applied to healthy skin. However, avoid applying it on skin with sunburns or irritations. 


Note that your skin might react to other active ingredients or irritants in your skincare product. So, as a general rule, we recommend avoiding skincare with parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oils, formaldehyde, DEA, TEA, MEA, methylisothiazolinone, alumina, or derivatives in the products.

Who Can Use Argireline?

Everyone that needs an anti-wrinkle effect can use acetyl hexapeptide-8. So, although anyone can use it, it’s most beneficial for the following skin types:

How to Use Argireline?

We recommend that you use acetyl hexapeptide-8 as a skincare ingredient in a clean beauty routine composed of complementing non-toxic actives, depending on your needs.

You’ll see the best results by using a clean beauty face moisturizer with Argireline and other supporting anti-age ingredients. However, ensure the moisturizer is water-based because this will increase the skin absorption of Argireline. 

For instance, in NUME-Lab Switzerland Advanced Renewal Face Cream, we use a clean and highly-effective anti-aging formula. We combine acetyl hexapeptide-8 with other actives manufactured with Swiss Biotech such as Snail Mucin Extract, Hyaluronic Acid, Shea Butter, Vitamin C, E, and A
