Mu-Conotoxin CNIIIC

A biomimetic peptide that mimics Cone Snail venom from the Indo-West Pacific region. This neuropeptide blocks signals sent from the brain to the facial muscles to contract and just like Botox®, it relaxes the muscles instantly. XEP-018™ is often hailed as Smartox (Smart-Botox) as it softens the muscles, resulting in natural-looking wrinkle smoothing without invasive procedures. This active provides both an instant and long-lasting effect as the peptide accumulates and continuously works to help skin repair itself by allowing new collagen to grow and mature, thus increasing skin elasticity.
