Project Description

GHK-Cu is an effective material for anti-aging

  • Tighten loose skin and reverse thinning of aged skin

  • Repair protective skin barrier proteins

  • Improve skin firmness, elasticity, and clarity

  • Reduce fine lines, depth of wrinkles, and improve structure of aged skin

  • Smooth rough skin

  • Reduce photodamage, mottled hyperpigmentation, skin spots and lesions

  • Improve overall skin appearance

  • Stimulate wound healing

  • Protect skin cells from UV radiation

  • Reduce inflammation and free radical damage

  • Increase hair growth and thickness, enlarge hair follicle size


Cosmetic Use of GHK-Cu

A number of clinical studies confirmed GHK-Cu’s ability to improve the appearance of aging skin. A facial cream containing GHK-Cu applied for 12 weeks to the facial skin of 71 women with mild to advanced signs of photoaging increased skin density and thickness, reduced laxity, improved clarity, reduced fine lines and the depth of wrinkles.

A GHK-Cu eye cream applied for 12 weeks to around-the-eye area of 41 women with mild to advanced photodamage performed better than placebo and vitamin K cream. It reduced lines and wrinkles, improved overall appearance, and increased skin density and thickness.

GHK-Cu applied to thigh skin for 12 weeks improved collagen production in 70% of the women treated, in contrast to 50% treated with the vitamin C cream, and 40% treated with retinoic acid. In addition to improving skin laxity, clarity, firmness and appearance, reducing fine lines, coarse wrinkles and mottled pigmentation, and increasing skin density and thickness, GHK-Cu cream applied twice daily for 12 weeks also strongly stimulated dermal keratinocyte proliferation.

With their pilot study for topical application of copper tripeptide complexes in aged skin, Krüger et al. confirmed an increase in skin thickness in the range of the epidermis and dermis, improved skin hydration, a significant smoothing of the skin by stimulating collagen synthesis, increased skin elasticity, a significant improvement in skin contrast and an increased production of collagen I.

GHK-Cu at 0.01, 1 and 100 nM incubated with human adult dermal fibroblasts increased production of elastin and collagen. GHK also increased gene expression of MMP1 and MMP2 at the 0.01 nM. All concentrations increased TIMP1. The effects of GHK-Cu were also investigated in a randomised, double–blind clinical trial. Female volunteers applied GHK-Cu, encapsulated in nano-lipid carrier twice a day in the course of 8 weeks using either carrier alone or the commercially available peptide Matrixyl® 3000 as controls. Compared to Matrixyl® 3000, GHK-Cu produced a 31.6% reduction of wrinkle volume. Compared to control serum, GHK-Cu reduced wrinkle volume 55.8% and wrinkle depth 32.8%.
