Question: I have been searching for more information on a product called Tripeptinon, but have become confused because there seem to be a lot of different websites that sell it. What is the official site for product information?


Answer: Tripeptinon is produced by a company called AminoGenesis based in Newport Beach, California. It can be confusing because a visit to their site directs you to a URL under another name. Furthermore, there are many different sites out there that offer free trials and other special offers that seem to be official vendors. If you visit the main AminoGenesis page, you can find out the official scoop.

AminoGenesis was founded by a man named Ron Cummings and is based on the concept that amino acids are the building blocks of every organic process and especially important to the development of essential skin proteins like collagen, elastin, and lipids. The AminoGenesis product line was formulated by a scientist named Dr. T. Joseph Lin, Ph.D., who has over 40 years’ experience in manufacturing and formulating cosmetic products. The Tripeptinon formula is designed to lift, firm, and strengthen the connective tissues in facial skin through three different active ingredients. Ceramide 2 is a nutrient purported to penetrate skin quickly to bolster connective tissues and thus tighten skin. Ubiquinone is said to be the most powerful antioxidant in the world and helps to protect and heal skin. The third component is a compound called amino-acid ogliopeptides, which the site claims has been proven in clinical trials to stimulate collagen production and repair. A more complete explanation of what these complexes are, how they are derived, and more about how they work is not available.

Tripeptinon capsules come with a 30-day money back guarantee. They do not contain animal products and are not tested on animals. There is a full ingredient list on the website. The site also contains an extensive testimonial page offering quotes from satisfied customers, medical professionals, results from clinical trials, celebrity endorsements, before and after photos, and a FAQ section for the AminoGenesis product line as a whole, not specifically for Tripeptinon alone.

If you do shop for an anti-wrinkle product in a health store, pharmacy or on the Internet, you’ll often find hundreds of different brands containing a confusing array of ingredients. You may be tempted to experiment with different products until you find one that works. But this approach may be expensive. More importantly, not all products contain the quality and quantity of necessary ingredients to positively promote long-term improvements on the appearance of wrinkles and an overall healthy complexion. That’s why you’ll need to do a little bit of research to find the best, most potent brand for your needs.
