SNAP-8 Solution C - Paraben Free
CAS: 868844-74-0

The anti wrinkle octapeptide SNAP-8 is an elongation of the famous hexapeptide ArgirelineŽ. SNAP-8 reduces the depth of wrinkles on the face caused by the contraction of muscles of facial expression, especially in the forehead and around the eyes.SNAP-8 is a mimic of the N-terminal end of SNAP-25 which competes with SNAP-25 for a position in the SNARE complex, thereby modulating its formation. If the SNARE complex is slightly destabilized, the vesicle can not release neurotransmitters efficiently and therefore muscle contraction is attenuated, preventing the formation of lines and wrinkles. Like Argireline, inhibits SNARE complex formation and catecholamine release, resulting in the reduction of the degree of existing facial wrinkles and demonstrated effectiveness against their development with regular use. In clinical studies, the severity of wrinkles around the eyes decreased up to 63.13%. Both in vivo and in vitro efficacy testing suggests that SNAP-8 is approximately 30% more active than its parent peptide Argireline. As supplied by the manufacturer, this product contains 0.05% SNAP-8 powder aka Acetyl Octapeptide-3.

SNAP-8 is a safer, cheaper, and milder alternative to Botulinum Toxin, topically targeting the same wrinkle-formation mechanism in a very different way. SNAP-8 can be incorporated in cosmetic formulations such as emulsions, gels, and serums where attenuation of the deep lines or wrinkles in the forehead or around the eye are is desired.

SNAP-8 can be incorporated at the final stage of the manufacturing process, provided the temperature is below 40°C (104°F). For storage it is recommended to store at 4°C (39°F). In rare cases, refrigerated storage of SNAP-8 Solution can cause precipitation of the preservative. This does not affect the integrity of the product.

Note, the correct INCI name for SNAP-8 aka Acetyl Glutamyl Heptapeptide-1 is Acetyl Octapeptide-3.

Incorporation: Add at the end of the emulsion, at cool down, below 40C (104F).
Recommended Usage Rate: 3-10%
Appearance: Water-like liquid, odorless
Preservative: Caprylyl Glycol

You are my go to resource for product information. Great product descriptions and complete information. I can easily spend hours reading product info before making my selections. Going to try some of your formulations soon.
Fast on service too, kudos to you.
Joyce, (Heart and Hand Naturals)

I have been ordering from LC for a few months now and I am very pleased with the products. I was especially looking for a good preservative and Optiphen Plus has not disappointed me. I just stared a small lotion business and the preservative is great. I have had no problem. My second go to is the LC E-wax NF, this is a great emulsifier. This has not disappointed me yet. No separation at all in my lotions. Thanks for taking the guess work out of using the correct combination of emulsifiers. I will definitely a repeat customer.
Thanks for helping me in my start up small business. I LOOK FORWARD TO GROWING MY SMALL BUSINESS WITH LC
Wanda, (Maria's Natural Lotion)

I have ordered from LotionCrafters several times and been more than happy each time. Shipping was very fast, the order was perfect each time, and everything was wonderfully well packed - nothing has ever leaked or been damaged in transit. I will order from LC as long as I am making some of my own products - could not be happier with the service, products or company!

I have placed and order and paid for shipping, couple of hours later, they refunded me $12 for excess postage as they have send my order with flat rate. I am stunned on how a company can be this honest. Thank you very much
