A: No, there are no known side effects of PROLOU. Q: HOW DOES THE TRIPEPTIDES IN PROLOU COMPARE TO THE PENTAPEPTIDES IN OLAY REGENERIST? A: Peptides are made up of chains of amino acids. An amino acid is any molecule that contains both amine and carboxyl functional groups and peptides are made up of a number of amino acids, conventialy up to 50. A tripeptide contains 3 amino acids and a pentapeptide contains 5 amino acids. Generally, the more amino acids in the chain the more reactive the peptide is (Botox is a peptide with around 25 amino acids in the chain). However, the converse to this is that the smaller the molecule the quicker it is absorbed through the skin, and therefore it reaches the targeted site in the depths of the skin, and the quicker it starts working. Research at Pentapharm has shown that Syn-Ake is the optimum size peptide, and amino acid combination, to reduce the formation of wrinkles. Q: WERE ANY SNAKES HARMED TO MAKE THE PRODUCT? A: No. The snakes kept at the laboratory at Pentapharm in Brazil are kept in natural conditions in order to ensure they can be monitored acting as they would in the wild. Pentapharm would not be able to analyse the snake activities, venom, etc. if the snakes were not kept in optimal conditions. Q: HAS IT BEEN ALLERGY TESTED?
