SR-SKINCARE COPPER PEPTIDE SERUM (GHK-CU)
Features Copper Peptides (GHK-Cu) in a hyaluronic acid serum base.
A remarkable multi-benefit product
Copper Peptides protect the skin and slow down the ageing process of the skin by eliminating free radical molecules. Free radical molecules develop in the skin primarily as a consequence of exposure to the sun but may be generated through other inflammatory processes. Free radicals damage skin cells at a molecular level and can actually damage our DNA. As a potent antioxidant, copper can eliminate these free radicals before they can do harm
COPPER PEPTIDES AND COLLAGEN PRODUCTION
Copper Peptides play a vital role in the skins biological processes that manufacture collagen. As we age the skins ability to manufacture collagen and elastin declines at the same time that the ability of our skin to protect existing collagen and elastin in the skin diminishes. The consequences of declining levels of collagen and elastin is a loss of firmness and structure in the skin with sagging and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles becoming more evident. Applying GHK-CU to the skin will improve the skins ability to protect existing levels and increase the synthesis of new collagen and elastin.
An independent 2002 study on 20 women showed that it increased collagen in 70% of those treated with GHK-Cu, compared to 50% for vitamin C and 40% for Retinoic Acid
COPPER PEPTIDES AND SCAR REDUCTION
Research has demonstrated GHK-CU’s remarkable ability to reduce the depth of scars and ultimately diminish shallow scarring to a point where they are more or less invisible. When the skin is injured the skin’s primary concern is to repair the damage as quickly as possible. The skin is less concerned with cosmetic appearances than repairing the wound and so the collagen it lays down to cover the wound site will be disorganised and haphazard, Scar tissue is disorganised agglomerations of collagen fibres. Copper peptides have the ability to dissolve these haphazard bundles of collagen fibres and replace them with better organised bundles with the result that gradually the scar tissue is replaced with tissue that is more synonymous with the tissue around the wound site. Please bear in mind that the process is gradual and will take time. The length of time to make visible improvements to the appearance of the skin will also of course depend on the extent of the scar tissue with shallow scarring such as post acne scars responding best. The process can be accelerated by the employment of a skin needling roller. For more information read our article here…
COPPER PEPTIDES AND HAIR LOSS
Although not a great deal of clinical research has been undertaken, several studies suggest that the application of copper peptides to the scalp can slow down and even reverse hair loss. We do not state this as an absolute fact but do recommend you Google copper peptides + hair loss and draw your own conclusions.
