Spec-Chem Industry Inc. carries out a copper peptide anti-wrinkle gel test

Test formula, 0.2% SpecPed GCu21P Copper Peptide Anti-wrinkle Gel, decreased facial wrinkles by 42.25% in 56 days.

Process Flow:

  1. Disperse carbomer in glycerin. Try not to get lumps while pour in boiling deionised water, and stir evenly;
  2. Scatter xanthan gum in EG - 1, pour the remaining cooled deionised water and the remaining components of Phase B together into the carbomer dispersions and mix evenly while hear to 80°C
  3. Mix phase A and heat to 80°C; Mix phase A and phase B and stir for 30 minutes while keep the heat;
  4. Stir while cool to 60°C, then add phase C; stir and cool to below 45°C, then add phase D. Continue stirring and cool to room temperature.

Features and functions

The combination of copper and peptide improves the permeability, allowing inorganic copper ions, which are difficult to penetrate stratum corneum, to penetrate deep into the skin to function.

The complexes of cupric peptides with their copper ions can be used as activators and antioxidants for tissue remodelling.

As signal peptide that promotes the degradation of large amounts of collagen aggregates outside scars, helps synthesis of beneficial collagen and elastin to skin, and controls the growth rate and migration of different types of cells with functions as:

  • Anti-inflammatory,
  • Anti-oxidation
  • Activate cells;
  • Repair damaged skin;
  • Anti-ageing.
