Never heard of our GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex? We’ve harnessed the anti-aging power of GHK-Cu Copper tripeptides and combined it with Centella Asiatica to make a formulation so effective it was featured by Cosmopolitan.
Designed for all skin types, our GHK-Cu Serum is a product that not only works to remove the effects of aging, but to delay them–preventing and limiting future wrinkles, age spots, and facial lines from forming. It does so by rejuvenating our skin’s natural renewal systems, working on a deep cellular level to influence and rebuild collagen and elastin levels.
Centella Asiatica: How Our Copper Peptide Serum Is Different
Not only is GHK-Cu a strong antioxidant, UV radiation inhibitor, and all-around powerful anti-aging product, but the addition of Centella Asiatica takes this exclusive serum to the next level. By adding Centella Asiatica to the mix, we can achieve a higher level of skin rejuvenation.
Centella Asiatica offers our copper peptide serum a more complete amino acid complex, which is essential for skin health, repair, stimulation and growth. Without the right ratios of amino acids, our skin doesn’t have the ability to consistently generate new, vibrant skin cells or stimulate the buildup of collagen. Centella Asiatica is a plant based amino acid that accelerates the process, promoting skin tissue repair and regeneration and stimulating collagen production.

If you need lines lessened, skin smoothed, tone improved, wrinkles reduced, and sun damage wiped away, along with the glowing skin we all had when we were younger, try GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex Formula I today!
Wondering whether you should try Formula I or Formula II?
Always start with GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex Formula I (which is 0.5% GHK-Cu). If you have used Formula I for more than six months, you can move up to Formula II (which is 1.0% GHK-Cu), but you will not gain any benefits by “skipping” straight to Formula II.

Consistent use of our GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex can:
- Increase stem cells production.
- Improve elasticity, build collagen and tighten loose skin.
- Dramatically reduce age spots, photo damage and hyperpigmentation.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles, showing results on a wide range of facial marks from “smoker’s lines” to deep set wrinkles.
- Improve skin clarity and color, reigniting your youthful glow.
- Act as a powerful anti-inflammatory and normalize skin.
- Calm irritated and reddened skin.
- Tighten the protective skin barrier proteins, producing stronger, smoother, thicker skin.
- Accelerate wound healing.
- Reduce the appearance of scars, like acne scars and stretch marks.
- Protect skin from further UV damage by inactivating reactive carbonyl species, which have damaging effects on skin proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids.
- Improve overall appearance.
Recommended for individuals of all skin types as long as they are at least 28 years-old, GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex is a powerful product that shows great effects with only light application.
- Apply enough to just barely cover your face, neck, and décolleté, avoiding your entire orbital eye area.
- Like we said, less is more! Using more than the recommended amount is not going to make it work faster or better.
- Use once a day only.
Using GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex In Addition to Other NCN Products
- If you use All-Trans Retinol 2.0% Formula II, a prescription Retin-A, or other Tretinoin product, then apply your GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex in the morning only.
- If you use our regular All-Trans Retinol 2.0% Formula I, then apply your GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex at night, wait at least two minutes and apply All-Trans Retinol 2.0% Formula I over it.
- If you use our Vitamin C+ Serum with Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid & Glutathione, then apply your GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex at night and your Vitamin C in the morning.
- You can use them together, but there needs to be at least a 15 minute wait period between applications.
- If you do choose to wait, apply GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex first, then apply your Vitamin C+ Serum after the minimum 15 minute wait period.
- If you use an acid based daily exfoliator that gets left on your skin, then apply the acid based leave-on exfoliator in the morning and your GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex at night.
- Again, like above, you can also use them together, but there needs to be a wait period between applications.
- Apply one (either one works), then wait at least 15 minutes and apply the other over it. The general rule is to apply the thinner of the two products first.
Do not apply GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex prior to an LED treatment, Ultrasound, or any other skin care tool that penetrates products into your skin, until you have used GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex Formula I for at least two to three months.
Please note: Taking 1,000 mg. of Vitamin C and 1,000 mg. of MSM are going to increase the effectiveness of the GHK-Cu Copper Peptide for firming the skin.

Question: Can I use GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex around my eye area?
Answer: While most people can use it around the eye area, we recommend that you don’t. GHK-Cu Copper Peptide, at the strength we use it in our formulas, is intended to be used on your face, neck, or anywhere on your body. Our formula is not intended for use around your entire orbital eye area.
Question: If I’m using Tretinoin at night, can I apply the GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex at night as well?
Answer: No, if you’re using any form of Tretinoin, you will need to use your GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex in the morning. Even though GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex is a powerful anti-aging serum, it’s not strong enough to stand up to Tretinoin. This also applies to our All-Trans Retinol 2.0% Formula II.
Question: Can I use GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex with my dermaroller?
Answer: Many of our clients use GHK-Cu Copper Peptide with their dermaroller, however, we do not recommend it. Our delivery system in all of our products enables the products to penetrate as deeply as they need to be to work their hardest for you. There is no need to push our products deeper into the skin.
Question: How often can I use GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex?
Answer: GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex is to be used once a day.
Question: My skin is pretty tough and can take a lot; can I start with GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Amino Complex Formula II?
Answer: You need to start with Formula I and use it for at least 6 months (1 year is better) before moving up to Formula II. GHK-Cu is a strong anti-aging product that your skin needs to get acclimated to. If you’re using it to treat a scar(s), and not your entire face, that’s the only condition in which you can use Formula II and just spot treat with it.
