Copper peptides are a revolutionary & cutting-edge cosmeceutical ingredient with many benefits and are most commonly used in anti-aging products. Copper peptides are naturally occurring compounds and can also be synthesized by combining copper and amino acids. Copper peptides stimulate the rapid production of collagen and elastin, which helps promote smooth and plump skin. Copper is known to aid in the formation of enzymes in the skin to firm, smooth, and soften rapidly, helping reduce the signs of aging. Among its many uses, Copper tripeptides work well in hyperpigmentation formulas and help to even out sunspots. Copper used in hair and scalp treatments can increase hair growth, and thickness and enlarge the follicle size. It also stimulates blood vessel and nerve outgrowth and glycosaminoglycan synthesis. AHK’s demonstrated ability to improve tissue repair are another added benefit.

Common Uses: AHK-Cu increases the number of fibroblasts and boosts the production of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), which facilitates the formation of new blood vessels. It also reduces the secretion of transforming growth factor-beta1 in fibroblasts, an important step in countering the negative effects of DHT. This leads to reduced oxidative stress and stimulates hair growth by dermal papilla cells. Oxidative stress is responsible for triggering increased DHT production in scalp follicles, but the copper complex inhibits this stress by enhancing the production of SOD (Superoxide dismutase), which neutralizes potent free radicals like superoxide.
