Copper peptide (GHK-Cu)

July 20, 2023

Copper peptide (GHK-Cu) is a naturally occurring copper complex of the tripeptide glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine. It is used in cosmetic products for the skin and hair. It is known to aid wound healing and its potential applications in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and metastatic colon cancer are currently being investigated.
Copper peptide (GHK-Cu) has strong affinity for copper(II) and was first isolated from human plasma. It can be found also in saliva and urine. In human plasma, the level of Copper peptide (GHK-Cu) is about 200 ng/ml at age 20. By the age of 60, the level drops to 80 ng/ml. In humans,Copper peptide (GHK-Cu) is proposed to promote wound healing, attraction of immune cells, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, stimulation of collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis in skin fibroblasts and promotion of blood vessels growth. Recent studies revealed its ability to modulate expression of a large number of human genes, generally reversing gene expression to a healthier state. Synthetic Copper peptide (GHK-Cu) is used in cosmetics as a reparative and anti-aging ingredient.
