Efficacy and Mechanism of Action:
Carnosine is a dipeptide (sequence: beta-Ala-His) and a well-documented water-borne antioxidant with wound healing activity and naturally occurs in high concentrations in muscle and brain tissue. Carnosine is an unsaturated aldehyde that scavenges reactive oxygen species and peroxidizes fatty acids in cell membranes during oxidative stress. Low molecular weight water-soluble unmodified dipeptide-Ala-His has very little affinity for skin and does not penetrate beyond the first layer of cuticle. However, the lipophilic peptide palmitoyl-Ala-His diffused into the cuticle, epidermis, and dermis, and no systemic activity was observed.
