It’s true what they say: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. You don’t always get that option, though. Plenty of users have reported that even when using the products above, an infestation can occur. Fleas are tenacious and sometimes you need drastic action. When drops fail, many folks have turned to Capstar as a way to reset the flea situation, or at the beginning of a flea treatment. Within four hours (six for cats), all adult fleas will be dead, giving you a clean slate in order to get control of an infestation. You can give these once per day, so you can keep the heat up if it takes longer to get the situation under control. Once the Capstar has worked, you can apply a drop-based treatment which could work better at that point. As with having their own Frontline-style solution, Sentry offers Capguard , which is a little cheaper.
In this double-blind clinical study, we evaluated the effect of our newly developed synthetic collagen-like hexapeptide on wrinkles. Twenty healthy women volunteers, aged 40 to 62 years old, participated in the study Volunteers applied either a gel formula containing 3% of the collagen-like peptide and 1% of a booster molecule that stimulates general cell metabolism with no specific effect on wrinkles, or a placebo gel, on the eye zone area twice a day for 4 weeks. Control visits were performed at the beginning and the end of the study. Skin wrinkles were evaluated clinically and by silicon replica analysis followed by statistical treatment using the matched-pairs Student's t-test. The results showed that application of the collagen-like peptide on the skin significantly reduced the total surface of wrinkles and this effect was observed in 75% of the replicas. Similarly, the decrease in number and average depth of wrinkles was also significant and was observed in 65% and 75% of the replicas, respectively. The effect of the collagen-like peptide on reducing the total and average length of wrinkles was also remarkable. This effect was statistically highly significant (p < ) and was observed in 75% to 80% of the replicas. Moreover these results were supported by volunteer questionnaires and clinical observation. The results demonstrate that the collagen-like peptide acts deeply and intensely on wrinkles; these properties are of great interest in the field of antiaging skin care research.
