I've read from an article on this site that argireline can cause sagging further down the line. I've been using this moisuturizer that has this ingredient in it and I was wondering if it is high enough for me to be concerned. The ingredients are:

active ingredients: avobenzone 1.8%, octinoxate 7.5%, octisalate 5.0%, oxybenzone 2.4%
inactive ingredients: water, glycerin, isostearyl neopentanoate, cetearyl alcohol, butylene glycol, myristyl nicotinate, cyclopentasiloxane, shea butter, peg-8, isononyl isononanoate, ethoxydiglycol, glyceryl stearate, peg-100 stearate, ammonium acryloldimethyltaurate/vp copolymer, ascorbyl glucoside, acetyl hexapeptide -3, palmitoyl oligopeptide, palmitoyl tetrapeptide -3, retinol, ursolic acid, palmaria palmata extract, phytonadione, calluna vulgaris extract, haslea ostrearia extract, pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract, cinnamomum cassia bark extract, rheum palmatum extract, glycine soja (soybean) seed extract, tetrahexyldexyl ascorbiate, phospholipids, sodium pca, urea, etc

considering how far it is down the list, the concentration is likely to be too low to make a diffrence either way, but it is hard to be sure w/o exact concentration %.

I've been using Relax-A-Line on my crow's feet for probably a year and a half and have not seen any sagging. It has 10% acetyl hexapeptide 3 in it and lots of hyaluronic acid. I wouldn't use Argeriline (AH3) all over my face - I don't want my cheeks to be relaxed but it's good for fine lines caused by tiny muscle movements. I personally prefer the Relax Plus with Vialox for my "11" though. It's stronger, a "curare-like ingredient" (amino peptide 3 I believe) that works better on those muscles for me.
