The Magic of Microencapsulated Copper Peptides
If you follow health & skin trends, like we do, you’ve probably heard about the wonders of copper. People are cooking with copper pans. Drinking from copper cups. And more and more skin care products and shampoos are using copper peptides.
In fact, we just did a quick google search and found over 12 million results for copper peptides.
So what makes one copper based cream better than another?
The secret, we’ve discovered, is in the size of the copper peptides. If they are too large they won’t penetrate deeper than the first layer of your skin. Too small, and the microencapsulated copper peptides become unstable and the benefits are wasted.
What makes Lexi Skin creams different is the microencapsulated copper peptides are reduced to the perfect size to be easily absorbed into the skin to boost the production of collagen and elastin to reveal healthier, younger-looking skin.
Without getting super-scientific, microencapsulated copper peptides improve skin firmness, smoothness, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, by promoting collagen, elastin, glycosaminoglycan and improved antioxidant activity. They also remove damaged collagen and elastin from the skin.
Another benefit, and one Dr. Arthur Swift has observed in his clinic is the incredible ability of copper peptides to speed up wound healing by normalizing the bacterial concentration on the skin when used regularly.
Some skin care experts have called copper peptides, nature’s Botox. But we think a “magic formula to turn back time” sounds way cooler.
