What are Copper Peptides?

Updated on October 10, 2017

Copper Peptides are Found in Our Cells

What are copper peptides? Copper is an alloy that is found in very small quantities in our cells. These protein compounds were introduced into the skin care industry in 1997. They have been known for being a great catalyst for skin regeneration as well as the ideal prototype for skin remodeling. This wonderful ingredient also gives the skin a soothing effect and provides the skin with the nourishment that it craves.

Copper Peptides Help with Treating Pimples and Scars

Copper peptides help with treating pimples and scars and actually promotes the synthesis of collagen and increases the activity of antioxidants. Copper has been discovered to help with firming of the skin, enhance elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Wow, now that's one compound I don't remember learning in chemistry during high school. What about you?

When this alloy is transformed into copper peptides, the copper compound can be used to help with skin rejuvenation to maximize the appearance of fresh healthy looking skin. This compound can also help with the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the resilience of the skin, tightens the skin and balances the damaging free radicals in the skin because of its antioxidant properties.

What skin products contain copper peptides?

There are many products that contain this fabulous compound of copper peptides, and it isn't just used for the skin on the face. There are also many eye treatments that incorporate this wonderful compound into their products. I personally can say some positive things about this product and used it a while back in some eye cream, due to my severe dark circles.

Personal Experience with Copper Peptides

Sometimes I would wake up from a nice restful sleep and see these unsightly dark circles and puffiness under my eyes. I remember seeing a commercial that had this new formulation that was said to help with these problems, so I tried it and it did work. My skin was a tad bit sensitive to this product at first, but after a few applications it seemed to take to it nicely and best of all I noticed a huge difference in the appearance of the dark circles as well as the puffiness underneath my eyes.

Copper Peptides in Serums Help to Penetrate the Skin

There are also products that use this valuable scientifically engineered compound in serums for the face. People tend to use serums as opposed to creams because they are said to be able to deeply penetrate the skin slightly better than creams. They are able to get under several layers of the skin as opposed to just the top layer, which is what creams are usually capable of doing. So if you want more of the effect of the key ingredient the serum is the way to go.

What are copper peptides? Is a very common question people ask in today's modern skin care industry, so don't feel like you're the only one who asks this question. I too, at first had no idea what this compound was or what it did, but I am glad that I saw that commercial and tried it for myself because the results were very beneficial to me and my skincare routine.
