Skinstitut is founded on the belief that serious, high end skin care should be accessible to everyone. For this reason, we offer the most cost effective, cosmeceutical range using top-quality, potent, cutting-edge ingredients from all over the world.
Skinstitut offers a remarkably effective, full range of active, result-oriented products designed to strengthen the skin and make it healthier, thereby slowing down the visible signs of ageing.
Five Skinstitut products contain high concentrations (1.5% to 4.0%) of Synthetic Snake Venom (SYN®-AKE).
SYN®-AKE is a new anti-wrinkle active compound based on a synthetic tri-peptide that mimics the effect of a peptide that is found in the venom of the Temple Viper. This compound imitates the parts of the venom that cause relaxation of facial muscle contractions in a similar way to Botox®, blocking the neuromuscular contractions that cause facial muscle tension. Thus, wrinkles are visibly reduced when muscle contractions are inhibited. Whilst SYN®-AKE may note be a true substitute for Botox® or cosmetic surgery, it nevertheless is a non-invasive approach and a much less costly option.
