ActiTide-CP is a complex of glycyl histidine tripeptide (GHK) and copper. Its aqueous solution is blue.

Copper peptide is the ancestor of Sheng peptide. Sheng peptide is actually small molecule protein, which is composed of amino acids. These small molecule proteins are more easily absorbed by the skin. Sheng peptide is composed of some amino acids with a specific sequence, which are connected by amide bond arrangement. Two amino acids are called Er Sheng peptide, three amino acids are called San Sheng peptide, and so on. Even if the same amino acids are arranged in different ways, they will form peptides with different structures. Sansheng peptide copper is a trace element needed to maintain body function (2 mg per day). It has many and complex functions and is required by various cell enzymes. Because there are many important enzymes in human body and skin that need Cu ions, these enzymes play a role in connective tissue formation, antioxidant defense and cell respiration. At the same time, Cu also plays a signal function, which can affect the behavior and metabolism of cells. In the role of skin tissue, it has the function of antioxidation, promoting collagen proliferation and assisting wound healing.

In the GHK-Cu complex, the copper ion interacts with the N atom in the imidazole ring of the histidine side chain, and the other N atom comes from the deprotonated amide nitrogen between the glycine amino and glycine histidine peptide bonds.

Functions of copper peptide: the main functions of copper peptide include: effectively promoting the production of collagen, increasing vascular growth and antioxidant capacity, and stimulating the production of Glucosaminoglycan to help skin recover its self repairing ability; Promote the growth and differentiation of epithelial cells, so as to accelerate the wound healing; As an activator of tissue remodeling, it can also promote the growth, division and differentiation of nerve cells, immune related cells and glomerular cells, and stimulate the production of epidermal stem cell proliferation markers, integrin and p63.
