Copper Peptide GHK-CU

Copper Peptide(GHK-CU / Copper tripeptide-1) Powder Purity ≧95.0% | Cas# 89030-95-5 | Blue powder | GHK-Cu has been used in cosmetics industry. The effect of stimulating collagen production can be used in Anti-aging/Repairing skincare products/Hair growth products.

Copper peptide GHK-Cu is a naturally occurring copper complex of the tripeptide glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine. The tripeptide has a strong affinity for copper(II) and was first isolated from human plasma. It can be found also in saliva and urine.

GHK-Cu is proposed to promote wound healing, attract immune cells, have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, stimulate collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis in skin fibroblasts, and promote blood vessel growth. Recent studies have shown that it can regulate the expression of a large number of human genes, usually reversing gene expression to a healthier state. Synthetic GHK-Cu is used as a repairing agent and anti-aging ingredient in cosmetics.  GHK-Cu also exhibits a therapeutic effect on hair loss.

99% of the copper peptides we are referring to refer to GHK-Cu and its cosmetic raw material is called tripeptide-1 copper. Copper peptide, Prezatide copper, Tripeptide Cu, Copper Tripeptide, Acetate peptide copper, AHK-CU, Prezatide copper acetate, Blue copper peptide are all its aliases.

In the Chinese market, the "Tripeptide" mentioned by most people mostly refers to copper peptides.

Copper peptide (GHK-Cu) is a compound formed by the complexation of copper ions and tripeptide-1, the copper ions in it can promote repair, and tripeptide-1 (GHK) as a signal peptide can promote skin matrix synthesis. The composition of GHK-Cu is: glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine-copper, copper ion Cu2+ is not the yellow color of copper metal, but blue in aqueous solution, So GHK-Cu is also called The blue copper peptide.

GHK-Cu is a small molecule protein. It is a complex formed by the tripeptide GHK and copper ions spontaneously. It naturally exists in the body and participates in the body's metabolic process. It is the earliest peptide discovered and is hailed as the gold in the peptide.

Copper ions are important message-transmitting substances in cell physiology. Because of its moderate ability to bind copper ions (log stability constant = 16.4), GHK can transfer and exchange copper ions with specific receptors on the cell membrane to assist its entry cell. The copper ions in GHK-Cu can promote repair and reduce light damage. Tripeptide-1 (GHK) as a signal peptide can promote skin matrix synthesis. Reversing the time makes the young one step into place.

Advantages of Copper Peptide GHK-CU

1. The absorption capacity of GHK-Cu is much stronger than ordinary skincare products. Because GHK-Cu is a small-molecule protein composed of amino acids, small-molecule proteins are more easily absorbed by the skin.
2. GHK-Cu has special effects and can be used to treat wounds and scars, tighten the skin, and promote hair growth.
3. Suitable for different ages. For young people, it can prevent skin aging, and for middle-aged people, it can relieve facial dry lines and fine lines and reduce the spread of wrinkles.

Efficacy of Copper Peptide GHK-CU

1) Anti-wrinkle and improve skin elasticity;
2) Strengthen the repairability and tighten the skin;
3) Skin regeneration;
4) Promote wound healing;
5) Promote hair growth;

The mechanism of action of Copper Peptide GHK-CU

1) Promote wound healing and reduce scars;
2) Inhibit the secretion of inflammatory factor IL-6 and eliminate inflammation;
3) Promote the growth of skin stratum corneum cells;
4) Promote collagen synthesis and reduce wrinkles;
5) By quenching the active carbonyl group, blocking ultraviolet rays can cause fatal damage to the skin;
6) Enlarge hair follicles and accelerate hair growth;
