Copper Tripeptide-1 has been shown to play a role in stimulating the production of collagen, aid in wound healing and tissue remodeling. It also has Antioxidant, Anti-Inflammatory, Anti Microbial and Anti-Tumor Effects.

What is Copper Tripeptide-1

Copper Tripeptide-1 is naturally occurring in the body, it is composed of the amino acids Glycyl-histidyl-lysine, which spontaneously binds to copper, also known as GHK-CU. Copper Tripeptide-1 has many benefits within the human body, however levels decrease with age. Given the benefits that it has for renewing, repairing and protecting the skin, it makes sense that this would be used in cosmeceutical skin care products.

Anti-Aging

Copper Tripeptide-1 is used topically for anti-aging and firming of the skin. As we age our skin becomes progressively thinner, this is due in part to the declining production of collagen in the dermis and keratinocytes in the epidermis. As we age the skins ability to protect and repair itself also declines and this contributes to the degradation or breakdown of collagen. Copper Tripeptide-1 plays a role in stimulating collagen production and in the proliferation of keratinocytes. This is very promising for anti-aging skin care

Wound Healing and Tissue Remodeling

Copper Tripeptide-1 is seen to play a role in accelerating wound healing and improved tissue remodeling. Studies done on diabetic wounds, showed that wounds healed up to three times faster and had a lower incidence of infection, in the presence of Copper Tripeptide-1. This is relevant to anti-aging, because as we age the levels of GHK-CU decrease, which can affect the ability for skin to repair and renew it’s self. Further more, many of the treatments used to improve skin appearance, take advantage of the skins wound healing ability to increase the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. The more effective the skins wound healing ability is, the more effective the treatment may be.

Anti-Tumor and Protective Ability

Radiation from sun exposure and cancer treatments have damaging effects on DNA and induce aging. Copper Tri-petide-1 (GHK-CU) helps to protect DNA from these damaging effects. Tumor cell lines died in the presence of Copper Tri-peptide, however healthy cell lines were protected. Skin fibroblasts, are “master cells” responsible for producing collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Fibroblast exposed to radiation have been shown to restore their function when in the presence of (GHK-CU).

Antioxidant, Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Microbial Effects

Intrinsic antioxidants, are antioxidants that the body makes, they can not be obtained with diet. With age, the production of these intrinsic antioxidants declines. Some of these intrinsic antioxidants are induced by Copper Tripeptide-1. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial effects during wound healing and tissue remodeling stages.

Skin Care Products with Copper Tripeptide-1

Topical products with Copper Tripeptide-1 may be useful for post procedure skin care to enhance results. They definitely look to be a promising as part of an anti-aging skin care regimen, especially when used with other power house products such as retinoids, anti-oxidants and most importantly broad spectrum sun protection.

Innovative Skin Care has added Copper Tripeptide-1 to many of their iS Clinical line of skin care products, including the most recent “Youth Serum” which is quickly becoming an A-list favorite. It is also found in Super Serum Advance +, Reparative Moisture Emulsion, Youth Intensive Cream, Youth Complex and Youth Eye Complex.

Youth Serum by iS Clinical
A serum that claims to give you the “best of both worlds”, how perfect is that?! Youth Serum is designed to provide an instant smoothing and tightening effect, and long term wrinkle reduction (via collagen production). Could this Youth Serum be the fountain of youth we are all searching for?

I think expecting any single skin care product to be “THE” fountain of youth, may just be setting you up for disappointment. I believe that the fountain of youth is a full comprehensive approach to anti-aging, which would include skin care products along with aesthetic treatments, healthy lifestyle, diet, excersise and what ever fits your personal beliefs towards a healthy mind and spirit. With that said, I think it is fair to say that Youth Serum is one of those things that will add to our fountain youth.

This serum is appropriate for all skin types, espesially when anti-aging is a concern. As someone who works in medical esthetics, I am very interested in the role this product plays in wound healing, tissue remodeling as well as it’s anti-tumor effect and ability to protect DNA from the damaging effects of radiation. I think this product would be very beneficial for those with thin or impaired skin that may have reduced wound healing ability due to medical conditions or treatments.
