Pentapeptide-25

Synthetic peptide containing arginine, glycine, leucine, lysine, and valine. It improves the appearance of cellulite and limits the storage of lipids. It reduces the appearance of vacuoles in adipocytes.

Pentapeptide-25 is similar to a common sequence in uncoupling proteins (UCPs), a universal family of mitochondrial transporters that allow energy to be released as heat.
