Are There Controlled Studies on Copper Peptides?

Just as a piano must be periodically fine-tuned to maintain melodic balance, studies suggest that GHK-Cu tunes gene expression to a healthier, younger state. But how does this translate to healthier, younger skin?

 

A clinical study which compared the effect on the skin's production of collagen after using creams containing copper-peptides, vitamin C, or retinoic acid (retin-A) Twenty volunteers applied the various creams to their thighs daily for one month. New collagen production was determined by studying skin biopsy samples using immunohistological techniques.

 

The study found, that after one month, copper-peptides had the most significant effect on collagen production. Significant increases in collagen production were found in 70% of the persons treated with copper-peptide creams, 50% of the persons treated with the vitamin C cream, and 40% of the persons treated with retinoic acid.

What Are Copper Peptides?

Copper peptides are small protein fragments that have a high affinity (liking) for copper ions. The best known copper-peptide is GHK-CU – the first copper-peptide discovered by Dr. Pickart.

 

According to studies this small molecule helps rebuild skin, repair wrinkles, restores your skin’s youthful glow, reduces skin’s laxity and mottled pigmentation, fades the appearance of scars (when used with exfoliating acids or skin needling procedures) and can even reset your skin’s DNA to a more youthful state.
