Copper Peptide (GHK-Cu)
For Skin and Scalp
Copper Peptides have the ability to penetrate beneath the epidermis on your face and scalp, potentially helping to build collagen and elastin. Other anti-aging effects are possible too, including reduced inflammation and improved circulation.
Copper Peptides are thought to help increase blood circulation in your skin, Copper itself has been reported as being able to help maintain the tissues found in blood vessels. Thus, Copper peptides may possibly stimulate hair follicles so they receive adequate oxygen and nutrients to produce new hair growth.
Copper Peptides promote collagen production and act as antioxidants. They are needed for natural healing and regeneration of your skin and to help remove damaged collagen. To improve wrinkles and to help our skin look younger we need to replace lost collagen. When collagen breaks down, it forms specific peptides. These peptides act as a signal to tell your skin it was damaged and to make new collagen.
