The Hand B-Tox
Like Botox without the hassle
A patented ingredient with “B-Tox-like” properties, The Hand B-Tox fights dynamic wrinkling while providing a gentle cosmetic treatment on the back of the hands. It relaxes the muscles, resulting in visibly gentler features and a softening of expression lines.
The principal ingredient Argireline actually goes under the scientific name of Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, and is manufactured by Lipotec. Lipotec is a Barcelona, Spain-based cosmetics research lab. The peptide is derived from natural proteins, and claims to actually relax facial muscles to the point of paralysis. This goes well with the company’s “like Botox without the hassle” claims.
The theory is that relaxed facial muscles will minimize current wrinkles caused by repetitive muscle contractions, as well as prevent new wrinkles. Muscle contractions are guided by a chemical reaction called “SNAP receptor complex,” and Argireline is specifically designed to interfere with this reaction.
