It energizes those cells in your skin that reactivate collagen & elastin, thus telling your skin cells to look and act younger.  With visible results in only 2 weeks, the skin if firmer, more supple, and lines & wrinkles begin to disappear.  Protect against oxidative damage while evening out skin tone & soothing irritated skin.


Copper – not just in pennies!

Did you know that copper is naturally occurring in your body? An adult has between 1.4mg and 2.1mg of copper per kilogram of body weight. [1]  Packed with anti-inflammatory qualities, copper essentially helps target the skin to help it heal, improve, and repair.

Here are just a few reasons why you need to add copper to your daily skincare:


  • Aids with skin conditions and irritations ranging from acne to psoriasis
  • Helps heal and reduce scar tissue formation, while also stimulating skin regeneration
  • Helps develop collagen and elastin to maintain the strength of skin
  • Helps heal, hydrate, and nourish the skin
  • Helps with collagen production and elastin stimulation to help firm the skin and prevent sagging


Copper Peptides and Collagen

Collagen is a protein in the skin that maintains its thickness and suppleness.  As you age, your skin has less collagen, which can cause the skin to thin out and develop wrinkles (crepiness). An important thing to note is that collagen production relies on adequate copper in your body and skin[2]. Copper peptides promote collagen and elastin production, and acts as an antioxidant. [3] They’ve been shown in studies to help remove damaged collagen and elastin from the skin, because they activate the skin’s system that is responsible for those functions.

Copper peptides also play a significant role in enhancing the function of antioxidants. Antioxidants are useful in reducing and removing harmful free-radicals from the skin, caused by make-up and environmental pollution. When these free-radicals are left on the skin, they can build up, and make it impossible for new skin cells to form, leaving your skin dull and dry. Antioxidants break down this buildup, and allow the natural cell turnover process to take place, giving you that youthful glow you’ve always desired.
