"EP 1180524 discloses a group of catecholamine inhibiting oligopeptides that have the effect of reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles on
the skin. The contents of this document are incorporated by reference. These peptides are derived from the carboxy end of protein SNAP-25.
Any of these peptides may be useful in connection with the patch of the invention; however, one particularly useful peptide has the formula
Glu-Glu-Met-Gln-Arg-Arg. More specifically, apeptide of this type is acetyl hexapeptide3, also know commercially as Argireline, manufactured by
Lipotec, and available from Centerchem(Norwalk, Conn)."

"Most innovations in anti-aging skin care are new ingredients, often totted as the next "fountain of youth". While no one has discovered how to
stop or reverse aging yet, there are some ingredients that have truly transformed what is possible in anti-aging skin care. Some of the most
effective ingredients (like retinoids, peptides, and antioxidants) have become leading skin aging fighters in the industry. Hydroxy acids, vitamins
(like B,C, and E), hyalurinic acids, coenzyme Q10, alpha-lipoic acid, and green tea are also among the industry's staples. However, in this ever-
changing landscape, there are always new additions. Some recent ones include growth factors, sirtuins, resveratrol, hydroquinone, argireline,
and dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE)."
