Protox is available in two different versions. Protox 10 contains 10 percent Acetyl Hexapeptide 3 (the most common ingredient used to relax facial muscles), which Protox 20 contains 20 percept of the active ingredient.
Compare Protox With The Top Products
As mentioned, both versions of Protox feature the ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide 3, which is touted as an alternative to Botox. Botox works because the toxin that is injected into skin freezes the facial muscles in place, which keeps the muscles from the constant contractions that can aggravate deep creases and lines.
Acetyl Hexapeptide 3 doesn’t freeze muscles, but instead tries to accomplish the same feat by relaxing them. Limited research suggests that this may result in a temporary tightening of the skin, but keep in mind that it is only one possible step in helping skin look younger.
It is just as important to help the skin to retain its natural moisture content, which is why it is encouraging to know that Protox also includes Hyaluronic Acid, which is one of the most effective ingredients available for keeping skin hydrated and soft. Hyaluronic Acid also makes sure that collagen remains nourished with nutrients, which will also counteract fine lines and wrinkles.
Unfortunately, that’s where our positive view of Protox stops, because the formula does not include other known anti-aging compounds such as Lifting Spheres or key botanical antioxidants like Green Tea, White Tea and Grape Seed Extracts. If Protox contained these known anti-wrinkle compounds as well, the team would have been duly impressed.
- Includes Hyaluronic Acid, a premier moisturizing nutrient
- Does not contain Lifting Spheres for a full firming effect
- No free trial offered
- Formula lacks sufficient antioxidant protection
Although it seems as if Protox does have some potential as a wrinkle reducer, the fact that the formula lacks some important components, like Glucosamine Complex and key botanical Antioxidants, keeps us from fully endorsing the formula.
