Copper peptide, also called Blue copper peptide,copper peptide, tripeptide-1 copper, abbreviated as GHK-Cu in English, has a rare structural sequence glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine-Cu (II). Tripeptide-1 is a small molecule protein composed of three amino acids, copper is a trace element required to maintain body functions, and blue copper peptide is a complex of metal copper ions and tripeptides. Due to its richness in non-ferrous metal copper ions, blue copper peptides exhibit a unique and elegant blue color, and are the first peptides discovered to have cosmetic effects.
Regarding the mechanism of action of blue copper peptides, it is currently certain that copper is the most critical role. Some researchers say that copper plays an important role in protecting the health of the skin. It can help build collagen and elastin, and stimulate the skin's own production of hyaluronic acid, which is important for strengthening the skin. In related literature, it is believed that the coordination state of copper ions and tripeptides needs to be maintained to exert the effect of blue copper peptides, but acidic substances can easily free the copper ions in the complexes, which will reduce the activity of superoxide dismutase. thereby reducing the antioxidant effect.
Tested by many scientists, the anti-aging and repairing properties of blue copper peptides have been proven: it can restore skin repair ability and reduce skin damage; stimulate glucopolyamine formation, increase skin thickness; stimulate collagen formation and reduce fine lines production; auxiliary antioxidant enzyme SOD, has a strong anti-free radical function, anti-aging.
Because blue copper peptides contain blue copper peptides, natural hirudin, amino acids, proteins and other nutrients, they can stimulate collagen fibroblasts to secrete collagen, thereby improving skin firmness and elasticity, reducing fine lines and scars, and improving skin elasticity. At the same time, it also has antioxidant effect, which is very powerful. In particular, blue ketone peptides can effectively promote the formation of collagen and elastin, firm the skin and reduce fine lines, increase the production of mucus between skin cells, delay the speed of skin aging, and keep the skin young. It is also used in anti-aging products. relatively broad.
Studies have shown that blue copper peptide can not only induce the formation of fibroblasts, but also promote the synthesis of a proteoglycan that plays an anti-aging effect. It is a powerful anti-aging ingredient. In 1998, a study conducted in vitro experiments on 71 women who used blue copper peptide facial cream for external use, and compared the functions of tretinoin, vitamin C and blue copper peptide in synthesizing collagen. Peptides have the strongest effect. In addition, the antioxidant properties of blue copper peptides have been confirmed in many in vitro experiments and animal experiments. It can scavenge various free radicals and peroxides, brighten the skin tone and prevent skin aging. Numerous studies have also proven that blue copper peptides have better anti-inflammatory and repairing effects. For example, in 2003, a study found that the topical application of blue copper peptide gel can improve ischemic wound healing by reducing the level of acute inflammatory cytokines and inhibiting the inflammatory response. In 2005, researchers found that blue copper peptide promotes normal growth of fibroblasts after irradiation with approximately the same number doubling time as normal cell growth.
