The copper peptide was firstly studied in the 1970s and has been used in skin care products for 30 years. The reason why people interests in the copper peptide is that it has small molecules and can bind to receptors more easily than larger ones. The copper in a copper peptide can assist in hair growth. Studies have also shown that it can remove the damaged collagen and elastin from the skin and scar tissue.
