copper peptides

Copper Peptides are essentially a copper molecule combined with a certain peptide it is chemically attracted to. Copper Peptides are said to have regenerative properties when used in skin care. The complex peptides actually repair tissue when used in skin care products that are infused with the proper scientific formulation.

The skin reparative copper peptides were invented by Dr. Loren Pickart of ProCyte Corporation and are used for their regenerative actions in scar and wound care in addition to skin care in terms of anti-aging and blemish treatment.

Copper Peptides eliminate damaged collagen and elastin from scars and then stimulate and accelerate regenerative repair actions which result in producing healthy new skin. This theory is then simply applied to those with wrinkles and other skin issues in which a boost in collagen production results in younger, newer skin.

Many popular anti-aging treatments such as vitamin c serums, glycolic acid preparations and retinols also promote cellular regeneration. However, they can often times be irritating to the skin. The benefit of using copper peptides is that it also happens to be anti-inflammatory in nature which makes it an exceptional choice for substituting or augmenting other treatments.

The biological science that facilitates how copper peptides work is considered to be impressive in terms of remodeling, rejuvenating, revitalizing and repairing skin. But in addition, it is said to prevent future free radical damage suggesting that it may also be considered an anti-oxidant or have antioxidant properties.

When products are copper peptide secure (meaning formulated with proper amounts, proper science and proper formulation), it has been established that they are effective in treating and repairing scars, aging skin and other skin and complexion issues.

Copper Tripeptide-1
This copper peptide is responsible for skin-remodeling actions. Rebuilds the skin’s protective barrier, activates the removal of damaged proteins and scar tissue, stimulates collagen and elastin production, and activates the natural production of Superoxide Dismutase. Increases the content of glycosaminoglycans (Hyaluronic Acid) within the skin to improve moisture-binding capabilities.
