Tripeptide-10 Citrulline is also know as Decorinyl. Tripeptide-10 Citrulline is a synthesized tetrapeptide which mimics the sequences of decorin that bind to collagen fibrils. It has been shown to regulate fibrillogenesis and control fibril growth, improving firmness and elasticity of the skin, ensuring uniformity of fibril diameter and spacing of collagen fibrils. In effect, Tripeptide-10 Citrulline/Decorinyl replaces the non-functional decorin encountered as the skin ages, and also sustains a superior moisture profile.
Tripeptide-10 Citrulline/Decorinyl has been incorporated into a liposomal system for enhanced penetration, stability and efficacy. It is recommended for cosmetic formulations designed for mature skin where an improvement of suppleness and strength of skin is desired. Tripeptide-10 Citrulline/Decorinyl may be used in emulsions, gels and other formulations.
Tripeptide-10 citrulline is an integral treatment for all ages which contributes to maintaining youthful collagen. The skin is restructured and strengthened and looks younger and smoother: wrinkle depth reduced by 29% in one month.
Science has proven that peptides can help manage wrinkles in your skin and reverse the signs of aging.
Human skin is comprised mostly of collagen. Collagen is a protein comprised of long segments of amino acids arranged like a chain. Collagen provides a foundation and thickness for skin.
Women under 30 have ample collagen, which results in smooth, tight skin.
The rest of us have less collagen – skin tends to be thinner, revealing more wrinkles.
When collagen breaks down, short segments of amino acids are formed. These are the tiny proteins and active molecules known as peptides. Peptides in skin care can provide significant anti-aging benefits.

- compensates lack of decorin in mature skin
- binds to collagen fibrils and regulates collagen organization, also enhancing its stability
- ensures uniformity of fibril diameter and the regular spacing of collagen fibrils
- maintains tissue shape and provides skin suppleness
- has a high and sustained moisturizing profile
Tripeptide-10 Citrulline ensures uniformity in fibril diameter and increases skin suppleness. Due to its good cohesion of collagen fibres, Tripeptide-10 Citrulline is widely used in anti-aging cosmetic products.
