You could say DNA is the antidote to anti-ageing and an impaired barrier function, with the role of its clever molecules being two-fold: its multi-faceted approach to rejuvenating the skin regenerates skin cells to rebuild thin, fragile skin that results from a damaged barrier whilst combatting chronological ageing; preserving the youthful look and vitality of one’s skin.
The correct pH balance is critical for your skin’s health. A protective film known as the acid mantle inhibits the growth of foreign bacteria, rendering it less vulnerable to attack from irritants. Balanced skin is somewhat acidic – falling into a range between pH 4.2 to pH 5.6 – but when out of balance, the barrier function becomes impaired, leaving your skin prone to ageing, breakouts, infection, and inflammation.
Copper peptides, ions, and peptide proteins are naturally found within your skin, but these molecules are used up and not replaced with age, so topical replenishment is key. These important molecules keep pH levels within the acidic range and play a role in your skin’s inflammatory response, helping to maintain your skin’s health. They also increase collagen synthesis, regulate natural copper levels and activate fibroblasts, encouraging adult skin cells to perform similarly to youthful skin.
Collagen and elastin production is boosted, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed, and your skin’s natural stores of hyaluronic acid are elevated. Your skin is left soft-to-touch, deeply hydrated and ultimately more youthful-looking.
Studies: Leyden et al. carried out a 12-week study on the face cream containing GHK-Cu – a significant improvement of skin laxity, reduced lines, increased skin density, and wrinkle depth were all improved.
