Key Performance Ingredients:
Copper Peptide Complex®: A unique delivery system that uses the body’s natural protective carrier to transport copper, an essential micronutrient, for optimum skin health.
Sodium Hyaluronate: A powerful humectant that deeply hydrates and binds up to 1,000 times its own weight in moisture, providing an immediate moisturizing boost.
Caprooyl Tripeptide-3: A biomimetic tetrapeptide that stimulates the production of key components at the dermoepidermal junction to visibly rejuvenate aging skin. Dramatically reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles after 28 days1, providing a continuous long term visible reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

STUDY OBJECTIVES To investigate the effects of GHK-Cu on gene expression, on tissue inhibitors and the production of collagen and elastin by human adult dermal fibroblasts (HDFa); and to investigate the effectiveness of topical application of GHK-Cu on wrinkle parameters in volunteers.
STUDY DESIGN A randomised, double-blind clinical trial involving twice daily application of GHK-Cu, encapsulated in lipid-based nano-carrier, to facial skin of female Subjects, aged 40 to 65, was run over 8 weeks. The formulation vehicle (a serum) and a commercial cosmetic product containing Matrixyl® 3000, a lipophilic GHK derivative, were used as controls.
RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS GHK-Cu significantly increased gene expression of MMP1 and MMP2 at the lowest concentration whilst simultaneously increasing the expression of TIMP1 at all the tested concentrations. All examined concentrations of GHK-Cu increased both collagen and elastin production.
Subjects also significantly reduced wrinkle volume by 31.6%compared to Matrixyl® 3000, significantly reduced wrinkle volume by 55.8% and wrinkle depth by 32.8% compared to control
