GHK-Cu is a naturally occurring tripeptide in our plasma that contains copper, making it vital for overall health. Its topical use offers both cosmetic and therapeutic benefits, such as reducing wrinkles, tightening loose skin, and providing anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties.

Topical GHK-Cu in serums or creams can improve skin texture and appearance, while also potentially reducing stress, anxiety and increasing pain tolerance. However, the injectable form of GHK-Cu may be more effective for applications beyond skin care.


GHK-Cu was first isolated by Loren Pickart 1973. During their research, it was found GHK-Cu had regenerative abilities that allowed older livers to synthesize proteins similar to younger tissue.
