What it is
Copper Tripeptide-1 is a peptide naturally found in body fluids. Peptides are building blocks for protein.
Copper Tripeptide-1 tells our body to create more collagen. Collagen is a protein that makes connective tissue. Boosting collagen production leads to a healthier skin barrier. Having a healthy skin barrier means having firm and hydrated skin.
By breaking down damaged collagen, it also helps with removing scar tissue. It may also help with reducing sunspots, acne scars, and uneven skin tone.
This ingredient is also an antioxidant. Antioxidants help the body fight off free-radicals. Free radicals are molecules that damage our cells, such as pollution and tobacco smoke.
