Copper peptide promotes and supports the synthesis of collagen. Mix it into your favorite base cream or water-based formula. Use sparingly, use of copper peptides in higher concentrations does not support skin health. Skin Actives Copper Peptide Solution contains 0.1% copper peptide which provides you with the exact amount to mix it into one of our 4 oz jars making it easy to make your own custom copper peptide formulation.
How to use it
Beginner: Add 1 tube to 4 oz of your favorite base cream or water-based formula.
Advanced: This ingredient is recommended for use at about 2% in formulations. Add during the cool down phase of formulations for the best results.
Copper peptide should not be used at high concentrations. Store product in fridge. Do not freeze.
