What Is OSK9 Peptide? 

OSK9 is a highly potent peptide designed to revitalize and firm the skin. It promotes a lifted and youthful look by nourishing the skin with essential amino acids. OSK9 appears as Acetyl Pentapeptide-55 Amide in the ingredients list of INFINESSE products and is made from several amino acids (the building blocks of our skin) such as histidine, arginine, leucine, and lysine. 

OSK9 was developed in collaboration with Professor Morishita of Osaka University. Professor Morishita specializes in regenerative medicine, cutting-edge peptide research, and the discovery and development of peptide-based skincare. 

The focus of our collaboration with Professor Morishita was on creating a high-performance ingredient capable of deeply nourishing the skin with essential amino acids, thus enhancing its overall appearance. We specifically aimed to address skin concerns of women over 30, such as skin firmness, elasticity, and hydration. 

What Are Peptides?  

Peptides are short chains of amino acids that serve as building blocks for proteins such as collagen, elastin, and keratin, which are crucial for skin health. In skincare, peptides stimulate collagen production, support healthy skin barrier, and reduce signs of aging. Overall, they play a key role in maintaining and improving the skin's appearance and function. 

Dermatologists often recommend incorporating peptides in anti-aging skincare due to their support of collagen and elastin production. Peptides are generally safe and well-tolerated by all skin types, including sensitive skin. 

How OSK9 Benefits the Skin 

Like other peptides, OSK9 helps to improve skin firmness and elasticity, giving it a more youthful and lifted appearance. It supports collagen production, which helps to smooth out fine lines. The amino-rich composition of OSK9 supports the skin barrier and improves the skin’s ability to retain moisture, leading to a plumper, more hydrated look. 

The OSK9 peptide’s unique benefits include: 

  1. Enhanced penetration: OSK9 is formulated to penetrate the skin more effectively than many other peptides due to its smaller molecular weight, allowing it to reach the deeper layers of the skin where it can support collagen production.
  2. Holistic skincare: While many peptides focus on a single aspect of skincare, such as hydration or anti-aging, OSK9 was designed to address multiple skin concerns, including firmness, elasticity, hydration, and wrinkle reduction.
  3. Natural synergy: OSK9 is combined with botanical ingredients in the INFINESSE collection to maximize the benefits and provides enhanced results compared to using a single peptide alone. 

Unique Beauty Ingredients of INFINESSE  

Beyond OSK9, the INFINESSE products feature a blend of botanical ingredients, including: 

  • Mei Gui Hua extract: A collagen- and elastin-friendly extract from the flower buds of Rosa rugosa.
  • Royal jelly extract: Produced by bees, rich in vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids, and other nutrients.
  • Resveratrol: A type of polyphenol known for its antioxidant properties. 

The INFINESSE products are also rich in moisturizing ingredients such as dimethicone, glycerin, squalane, hyaluronic acid, collagen, meadowfoam seed oil, and vitamin E (tocopherol).
