FAQ

NOT ALL QUESTIONS HAVE ANSWERS.
BUT THESE DO.
What does age-deceleration mean?
Open/Close

Our goal in terms of age-deceleration is simple: to help slow—or “hit pause”—on the internal and external factors that can physically and visibly stress your skin. Lifestyle, hormonal shifts and inflammation can all be factors.

In other words, we’re not anti-aging. Your age is what it is. But how you feel? That’s most important.

Some people are fine with their lines and wrinkles. Some people would like to soften their appearance. And some people would like to get ahead of the game and prevent these lines and wrinkles from surfacing in the first place.

In short? There’s nothing wrong with wanting to feel your best—inside and out.

Why is inflammation core to your formulation philosophy?
Open/Close

It’s all about balance.

We believe inflammation is a key component of virtually every skin condition. It can be a reaction to internal or external change, injury or trauma. We design each high-potency formula with a curated combination of skin-soothing and peace-keeping ingredients for optimal skin renewal.

What are neuropeptides?
Open/Close

Neuropeptides are a group of peptides—or short chains of amino acids. They act as chemical messengers, known for their ability to stimulate skin’s production of collagen and elastin.

Studies have proven that neuropeptides can produce effects similar to that of Botox and filler. They achieve this by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters that allow facial muscles to form wrinkles. Neuropeptides also plump the skin and improve its appearance in terms of lost elasticity and volume.

Our hero neuropeptides are GABA and palmitoyl isoleucine. GABA helps diminish the look of lines and wrinkles, while helping improve elasticity so skin looks and feels firmer. Palmitoyl isoleucine also assists with improving skin elasticity and lifts vital proteins in the skin. This neuropeptide visibly plumps and adds volume to cheeks while filling fine lines and wrinkles.

What does Alt-Pharma mean?
Open/Close

We’re not Anti-Pharma, we’re Alt-Pharma.

Alt Pharma is how we refer to our stance that traditional treatments aren’t the only path—there are other ways to heal. There are many options to explore when it comes to health. That’s why we carefully formulated our best-in-class skincare with a curated mix of the classics and ingredients you don’t typically see in skincare, like neuropeptides. They are known to inhibit the release of neurotransmitters that allow facial muscles to form wrinkles. They produce visible effects similar to Botox® and filler.

What does “A.P. CHEM” stand for?
Open/Close

A.P. CHEM has multiple meanings—and that’s why we chose the name. Each connotation is integral to our core brand identity and values. It stands for Advanced Placement Chemistry, of course, but also, Alt-Pharma™ and Anti-Inflammatory Properties.
