Creating a skincare product that is organic, natural, formulated with proven active ingredients, and feels good on the skin is gratifying. But the real excitement of being a part of Vitali Skincare is that it is powered by multiple peptides, including the game-changing GHK-Cu (Copper Peptide). Dr. Suzanne Turner, a cellular, longevity, and performance medicine specialist, best describes its impact. “This powerful copper peptide “goes into DNA and tells skin cells to act younger.” That is a biohacker’s dream!
I love the science behind Copper Peptides. These human copper-binding peptides GHK-Cu (glycyl-l-histidyl-l-lysine) have a stunning array of actions to counter aging-associated diseases and conditions.
GHK-Cu was isolated in 1973 as an activity bound to human albumin that caused the aged human liver to synthesize proteins like younger tissue. They play many roles critical to body function and also play an essential role in maintaining healthy-looking skin.
Our bodies naturally produce GHK-Cu. Children and young adults have especially high GHK-Cu levels (approximately 200 nanograms per milliliter). However, at 60 years of age, this amount goes down to 80 nanograms per milliliter of GHK-Cu. As a result, our skin loses its firmness and elasticity. (Resource 1)
While this can be disheartening news, it does not have to be. With Vitali Skincare, you can apply this beautiful blue copper peptide formulated with organic and natural ingredients directly to your skin and restore some of what aging and the environment have depleted.
Copper peptides are unique, safe, and effective. They invigorate aging stem cells, promoting the rapid production of natural collagen and elastin. This process gives skin elasticity, can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and smooths and softens the skin. Copper Peptides also enhance skin-plumping hyaluronic acid to increase hydration and visibly calm inflammation.
Another significant role that Copper Peptides play is to protect and restore skin from free radicals and UV damage. While free radicals and the sun’s UV rays damage the skin’s ability to regenerate, Copper Peptides can positively impact skin fibroblasts (cells that generate connective tissue), potentially combating UV damage to the skin barrier.
Dr. Turner says, “When you’re out in the sun, damage occurs to radiated skin. The presence of Copper Peptides on your skin initiates the DNA repair process. So when fibroblasts, the repair cells of our skin, are exposed to radiation, they can then replicate themselves, like fibroblasts not exposed to radiation.”
By consistently using Vitali with Copper Peptides, you are not only improving the appearance of your skin but also improve and protect the health of the biggest organ in your body.
