NEW! Data of the Cosmeceutical  and TriPeptide GHK 


The following paper was just released for public reading - SOFW International Journal for Applied Science - CLICK HERE

Excerpt: "The term cosmeceutical refers to the combination of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals and is used to describe cosmetic products with ingredients the are biologically active and have medicinal benefits. 

The quality of these derma-cosmetics has to be ensured by scientifically well-documented in vivo and in vitro tests that provide proof of efficacy and proven desirable effects.

The tripeptide H-glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine-OH (GHK) is one of the small protein fragments that occur naturally in the human body and has a high affinity for copper ions.

The Cu-GHK peptides are often mentioned in literature for their anti-wrinkle effect, reduction of age spots and other signs of aging. There are numerous in vivo, placebo-controlled and double-blind studies that confirm these effects. Cu-GHK increases collagen synthesis, firms the skin, strengthens its elasticity and makes it smoother, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and combats skin damage caused by UV radiation."
