June of 2014 will mark my 10 year anniversary of using copper peptide preparations. I will be turning 50 in a little over a year. Folks don't believe me when I tell them I'm sneaking up on 50 years old!

If 10 years of cps did that, I'm starting my 10 year journey . Thing is I'm 57 already so I'll be 67 in 10 years. If you look in your 30's at almost 50 then I should look in my 40's (younger than I am now) when I hit the 10 year mark. Yes, yes, I know everyone is different physically as far as body, skin, and general health...
Are there specific brands or formulations you all could recommend? e.g. strictly topical, GHK copper the only ingredient or should I watch out for other ingredients, which brands to avoid, etc. I would like to use GHK copper for my hair and skin, but would it also help internally, if there is a formulation safe for ingestion?
Dear Sheila: Thanks for posting your question! The work on copper peptides continues to impress. However, since this forum is solely dedicated to the science behind copper peptides, the FDA does not allow specific mention of product names or links to be posted on our forum.

Do you feel tired? Frustrated? Desperate? Do you keep spending money on skin care solutions that do not work? Indeed, with so many cosmetic products promising to ban wrinkles, lines and creases, eradicate cellulite and eliminate acne, why do we still have all those skin problems? Why is it that everywhere we look, we still see wrinkles and lines and sagging skin? Well, maybe with the exception of glamorous beauties of Hollywood, but who knows how many surgeries it took to achieve that look.
Hi everyone! I live in the UK and have been able to source a 50mg GHK-CU powder vial from a reputable lab. I want to use it topically for skin ageing and, most importantly, on my scalp to help with alopecia. I plan to do microneedling once a month on face and scalp and apply a cream made with the peptide. I only use natural products on my skin so I was thinking of mixing the peptide with my current face cream which is from a 100% natural german brand called weleda. You can see the...
Thank you for posting your question - We are happy to reply back! We are checking with Dr. Pickart to see if there might possibly be any interaction if you plan on adding GHK-Cu to this product. Keep in mind that for a finished product however, Dr. Pickart never suggests to go beyond 3% GHK-Cu as the final concentration. There simply would be no need to and Less is More when dealing with potent cosmeceuticals. Best Wishes, -Skin Biology
You have been so helpful THAN YOU! I’ve tested the PH of the cream and it’s a neutral 5 so I’m hoping that’s all we need to make sure of? I’ve also tested various oils such as jojoba or, even better for hair, castor oil, and they come at a neutral ph as well. Will that be enough to consider them safe for the GHK-Cu? With more research I’ve understood you do need to dilute the pure powder in order to add it in drops to the final medium (cream or oil). Am I correct? Copper toxicity does worry...
Dear SEIHAA : The good news is that copper toxicity shouldn't be a worry at all. Irritation is the main thing to keep in mind when mixing a finished product. Please email Dr. Pickart directly and he'll be able to assist - Send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org You can copy / paste your above questions and send them in the email. Dr. Pickart would be the best person to check with on this. Best Wishes, -Skin Biology
