After cleansing the skin, apply a light amount of your favorite copper-peptide product, such as Super GHK-Cream, Skin Signals Solution, Super CP Serum, or Super Cop Cream.
After copper-peptides have penetrated, a light amount of Retinol in Squalane can be used on top as a moisturizer and penetrating agent to increase efficacy.
HOW IT'S DIFFERENT:
Squalane and squalene are two very similar lipids and compose 15% of skin fats during teenage years but decline to about 5% after age 50. This is a major factor in the skin becoming rough, dry, and vulnerable to damage. Of the two compounds, squalane is more stable and preferred for skin use.
For thousands of years, fishermen from Scandinavia, Japan, and the South Pacific have used fish fats rich in squalane/squalene for the skin of their faces and hands after irritation by salt water. Naturally these lipids are found in several foods such as plant oils (especially olive and wheat germ), meats, and some fish oils as well as in human sebum. The richest source of this squalane/squalene is a breed of shark that lives in deep waters off the island of Okinawa. In 1916, a Japanese Chemist, Tsujimoto Mitsumaru, isolated and documented squalane in the liver oil of the family of fatty shark called Squalidae. Due to over fishing has endangering these sharks today, squalane from olive oil is mainly used.
Retinyl palmitate enhances the moisturizing action of squalane and helps visibly increase skin thickness, restoring a supple and vibrant skin complexion.
