GHK-Cu Copper Peptide in its crystal powder form


Vitali’s chemist, James Humphreys, who is always helping me better understand the chemistry behind our work, further explains it: “The blue color is due to the light energy emitted from the excited electrons in copper, showing that it has synergized with the peptide to become bioactive.”

Dr. Suzanne Turner, Vitali’s Medical Advisor, added, “The natural color of copper is reddish-brown. When copper interacts with the electrons of the amino acids GHK, it blushes blue.”

The blue color of the copper peptide is not always visible to the naked eye. It can be more noticeable in products with a high copper peptide concentration, such as Vitali’s products. 

The Formula Process

The process is intricate and complex, which explains why as an active ingredient, with greater than 99% purity, it is expensive.

Therefore, you will not find well-formulated, effective Copper Peptide products in the mass market because using adequate amounts of the element is not possible at a lower price.  

The copper ion is also responsible for many of the beneficial effects of   GHK-Cu. Copper is an essential mineral for human health, and it plays a     role in various processes, including collagen production, wound healing,    and immune function. GHK-Cu helps deliver copper to cells, boosting      these processes and improving skin health.

Some of the other benefits of Copper Peptide (GHK-Cu):

  • Improves skin elasticity and firmness

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

  • Protects skin from damage caused by UV radiation

  • Improves skin hydration
