Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime is a highly-effective face cream that’s specially formulated for women over 40. It’s packed with powerful anti-agers that target signs of hormonal aging, such as thinner and drier skin, increased fine lines and wrinkles, and loss of firmness and elasticity. Like all of the skincare products in Truth In Aging’s shop, this anti-aging cream has been tested and reviewed by women in the TIA community. So you can purchase this product now and feel confident that it works!

Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime contains a powerful mix of skin-saving ingredients, including vitamins A, B, and E, epidermal growth factor, a patented new tetrapeptide, and natural artichoke leaf extract. It’s also infused with powerful copper peptides that are three times the strength and 50% more potent than other formulas.

Directions:
After cleansing, gently smooth over face and throat. May be used morning and/or evening. Firmly close lid after use. Store at room temperature away from direct sunlight.

TIA Review by Marta:
At long last, “hormonal aging,” or the symptoms of menopause that result in thin, dry, sun sensitive skin, is getting some recognition from the beauty industry. Imbalanced hormones and what they are doing to our skin are no longer a dirty little secret. And this is being addressed head on with the new Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime.

Overtly aiming at women over 40, Osmotics founder, Francine Porter, has found Prime to be (in her own words) a “labor of love.” She has assembled some impressive heavy hitters, including a “triple strength” copper peptide, a firming tetrapeptide, an epidermal growth factor and artichoke leaf. For an ingredients nerd like me, this is heady stuff. I’ll come back to them after I tell you about how I got on with Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime.

My hormones seem to have been having the most fun with my forehead and neck, and so it is there where I put Prime through its paces. I started to see an improvement within about 10 days, which was an unexpected (but very welcome) outcome. My neck, in particular, is looking much smoother, and in response to a pinch test feels much more supple and firm. My forehead results are less dramatic, but I do fancy that the furrows are shallower. After a month or so, I am about half way through the pot, and I am anticipating more good things to come as I finish it.

Osmotics is big on copper peptides, and it is the key ingredient in its Blue Copper 5 range. With Prime, it has sourced a new version that the company claims is triple strength and 50% more potent. I am a big believer in the power of copper peptides to repair wrinkles and stimulate collagen, so this alone makes Prime something of a standout.

The tetrapeptide is acetyl tetrapeptide-2. There isn’t much research published on acetyl tetrapeptide-2, but I did read that it compensates for some hormone loss, such as the hormone thymopoietin, which slows down cell renewal and curbs the skin’s natural immune functions. Francine Porter swears by it for counteracting the force of gravity. And while we are on the subject of peptides, there’s also Matrixyl 3000, a very reliable collagen booster.

The growth factor in Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime is sh-Oligopeptide-1. This is the “synthetic human” stem cell that is in Medik8 Growth Factor Youth Activating Serum. Clinical trials by the manufacturer show results on wrinkles after 12 weeks. The last key ingredient, artichoke leaf extract (cynara scolymus) limits the production of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), which are generally undesirable things that lurk about waiting for the skin matrix to get worn out or damaged so they can start chopping it up. Artichoke also increases skin thickness, reduces fine lines and increases hydration (especially, I am told, in menopausal skin). In addition, there are vitamins A, B and E, as well as sodium hyaluronate.

I think Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime will have particular relevance for women entering into that confusing period of hormonal change when their skin is even more unpredictable than their emotions. And the only thing that can be predicted is the stuff they previously used is just not going to cut it – at that point, Prime could be just the thing.

    Great product! Goes on smooth and dries quickly. A small amount goes a long way. So happy I came across this product and would recommend to others. It really does make a difference with the fine lines on your face and eye area in a short time.

    My first impression was excellent. It feels absolutely amazing applied to the skin! It's cooling, easily absorbed, moisturizing without feeling sticky and there is no dragging or pulling on the skin — it just glides on, leaving the skin feeling really smooth. This may be because it contains some silicones, which ideally I'd prefer weren't included. However, there's no residue left to interfere with subsequent makeup application, and I swear my eyes appear as though they have been lightly airbrushed!

    The effect was distinctly noticeable to me after a few weeks, and I was amazed last week when I had a really good look at my eyes with the dreaded magnifying mirror (something I usually avoid like the plague!). My eyelashes have filled-out, are longer and appear to be darker in color. But what was a real surprise was that I actually needed to tidy up the shape of my eyebrows with a pair of tweezers because of the new growth — I literally can't remember the last time I needed to do this! Another major plus has been my upper eyelids, which are looking distinctly perkier! My eyes don't feel uncomfortably tight, just "well supported" and less droopy (yay!).

    I keep forgetting that this product has been specifically developed for menopausal skin. It's my 42nd birthday this week, and at present I've yet to face that particular hormonal hurdle! But I definitely feel the Osmotics Blue Copper 5 Prime range has something to offer women of any age. Several of the ingredients are designed to boost collagen and elastin production in post-menopausal skin, but also to increase firmness, elasticity and tone, and to fade dark circles and discoloration — problems we all face.

    This is a great product. It does a fantastic job firming the skin and minimizing lines. It doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and it works well in the morning before sunscreen and foundation.

    Just wondering how this compares to the Medik8 Growth Factor Youth Activating Serum. Also can it be used with Medik8 Firewall? Any recommendations?

    Hi HRHTish, copper PCA is the copper salt of the L-Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid (L-PCA). L-PCA is obtained from L-glutamic acid, an amino acid. Peptides are derived amino acids. Prezatide Copper Acetate is a GHK-Cu. In other words it is the real deal.

    Marta, which ingredient is the "triple copper peptide?" The copper I'm seeing (CopperPCA and the acetate) are not peptides, that's why I ask. Just trying to figure this out. I might switch from Blue Copper if Prime has real copper peptides in it, but I'm confused by the ingredients list.

    Hi Summerstorms. A momentary glitch was disrupting its display, but the correct Osmotics ingredients list is now showing.
