I have been using matrixyl solution from www.thepersonalformulator.com. I am 31 yo male with moderate crows feet around my eyes.

I started in the middle of November 2004 - so I have been experimenting with it for about 3 months.

The concentration of the active ingredient in my formulations is 5ppm (the glycerin solution I buy from the formulator website is 100 ppm supposedly) and I apply it in the morning and in the evening before bed.

The first two months I was trying different bases like aloe vera gel; hydroethylcellulose + water gel; nivea oil control lotion. I was also adding silicone oils (dimethicone or cyclomethicone) at level of ~ 2% for matiffying effect since I have a combination skin. All these formulations turned out too shiny for my skin and pretty often I got small red bumps - I guess that is caused by the high concentration of glycerin in the commercial matrixyl solution.

Finally, during the last month I started adding only water to the commercial glycerin matrixyl solution and using a spray to apply it evenly over my skin. That seems to have made it more tolerable to my skin - not so many bumps as with the other bases - and it feels pretty fresh.

So far I haven't noticed any reduction of my crow's feet.
I noticed 3 posts on this website about the Isomers matrixyl formulation. Two claim excellent results but frankly speaking sound too good to be true - they claim noticeable results in 2-3 weeks. The 3rd one said there wasn't any effect after 6 months of application.

Please post your experience with matrixyl!

Does anyone has any idea if matrixyl can be combined with denaturated ethyl alcohol?

Ethyl alcohol will not destroy matixyl molecule, which is a small peptide, but it may dry and irritate your skin.
