COMES IN 100GRAM heat sealed pouch.Copper peptides are small segments of copper proteins that are tiny enough to easily penetrate the skin.Assists in the improvement of the appearance of wounds and scarsIncreases skin renewal - reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinklesReduces the appearance of skin ageing - firms the skin, reduces the appearance of small and large wrinkles, reduces blotchiness and blemishes, improves elasticity and skin plumpnessExposure to sunlight, other environmental hazards and free radicals all contribute to the decline in the skin’s appearance that is associated with aging. Copper peptides have unique properties that can slow the effects of aging on the skinIn addition to promoting the growth of collagen and elastin, copper peptides help to activate and stimulate superoxide dismutase, or SOD, a powerful antioxidant enzyme that occurs naturally in the body. SOD combats the free radicals that cause premature aging of the skin. Gittleman and Castro explain that SOD also promotes the body’s ability to get the most out of the biochemical energy found in new tissue, such as new outer layers of skin that are constantly being created. To ensure that your skin looks plumped up and well moisturized, copper peptides stimulate the creation of glycosaminoglycans, which retain moisture in the skin’s inner cells.Although copper peptides are used most widely today to improve the appearance of aging skin, regenerate tissue in cases where skin had been scarred or damaged, as in a burn or as a result of other medical conditions, such as acne and diabetes-related wounds. The scars characteristic of such damage are made up of “extra-large” clumps of collagen. It was discovered that copper peptides helped to break down this scar tissue and replace it with the “smaller or more regular collagen found in normal skin.” The peptides also stimulate the production of other components essential to healthy skin, including elastin, glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans.Hair GrowthBecause hair is just a variant of the same tissue that makes up the body’s skin, it’s not altogether surprising that copper peptides have properties that help keep hair looking vibrant and healthy.COMES IN 100GRAM heat sealed pouch.APPEARANCE BLUE GREEN POWDERUse at .5-3% in your finished product. This product will go a long way, only use a small amount in moderation.Not for internal useUse in moderation.While moderate use of copper peptides aids in skin regeneration, large amounts or excessive use can actually create the opposite effect, heightening levels of "free copper" which promotes free radical damage and collagen breakdown instead of preventing it. Excessive use can actually lead to accelerated skin aging, skin weakening, sag and wrinkles. For this reason, only use the recommended daily amount to avoid any negative side effects. There have been rare reports of copper peptide topical use and irritation and redness amongst individuals with sensitive skin, particularly around the delicate under-eye region.
