What Is Copper Peptide and How does it Affect the Skin ?

Stemulation Copper Peptide serum application

If you have been paying attention to the latest skin care craze then you have probably heard of Copper Peptide.  But what is it and how does it affect the skin? 


First of all it is a powerful antioxidant that stimulates the production of glycosaminoglycans like hyaluronic acid and it activates the production of collagen and elastin. 


Collagen and elastin are the essential weave that supports the skin tissue and retains its supple youthful appearance.  When the weave of collagen and elastin breaks down or deteriorates, it causes the skin to sag and loose its vitality.


Copper peptide is recognized by dermatologists and estheticians alike for its healing properties. Copper peptide  is known to remove damaged collagen and elastin increasing the strength of the “weave” or skin tissue and has proven results in the treatment of scaring and hyperpigmentation.   


Some dermatologists recommend that copper peptide serums are not used in conjunction with a strong vitamin C serum for fear of over dosing, but each case is different and if you are concerned, ALWAYS consult your doctor.


Copper Peptide is classified as a skin retexturizer as its primary purpose.  That’s because of the associated benefits in the activation of critical cell activity.  The increase in collagen and elastin strengthens the skin and the glycosaminoglycans reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promote necessary moisture retention for a supple youthful glow.


Copper Peptide is known to “normalize” the skin’s microbiome (good bacteria) and reduce the affect the surface bacteria that causes breakouts.
