Collagen Renewal / Eliminates Damaged Collagen~
Copper peptide GHK-Cu is the most important element in the skin care field to stimulate the skin’s natural healing capabilities and is widely used in anti-aging products.
It is formed from a Copper Peptide Complex with a Glycyl, Histidyl, Lysine, and Copper structure. Cu is the one trace element that maintains regular human cell function, stimulates skin regeneration, and replaces lost collagen and tension proteins.
GHK is used in low, non-toxic concentrations, to facilitate skin’s healing and reconstruction, reduce inflammatory mediators, and increase production of important growth factors and molecular regulators.
The copper binding peptide, GHK, has been studied for the last three decades, primarily as a wound-healing agent. Its well-documented skin regeneration capabilities include stem cell activation, suppression of metastasis genes, and restoring damaged cells.
GHK possesses antioxidants that increase the level of antioxidant enzymes, and regenerate and repair irradiated skin cells. Studies found that GHK out-performed and increased collagen better than both Vitamin C and retinoic acid.
GHK is suitable for aging and mature skin, skin with a lack of elasticity, and dark or unevenly pigmented skin.
