Super Cop 2X with copper peptides

December 10, 2007 Reviewed by Marta 1 Comment
I have been intrigued by copper peptides for some time and recent research suggests that they could be underrated yet highly effective in diminishing wrinkles. Reports go so far as to claim that copper peptides not only halt the aging process, but can actually reverse it. The science behind these claims is somewhat more convincing than for most anti-aging creams, as I wrote in earlier post.

Nonetheless, there is really only one way to find out.

A month ago, I started using Skin Biology's Super Cop 2X. Skin Biology is the company set up by Dr Lionel Pickart to produce products based on his copper peptide patents. It is primarily aimed at reducing scars or acne pits. So I thought I would try it on a tiny groove I have at my outer lip. Instructions advise starting slowly and gradually building up applications over a week or so. Having started with two applications a week, I am now up to every other day (at most).

Dr Pikart cautions that results will appear only after several months. Furthermore, I am generally suspicious of products that produce an immediate effect; usually it is little more than superficial or the result of chemicals that may ultimately do more damage than good.

Having said all that, I am more than a mite disappointed that so far there has been no discernible difference. I'll report back in another few weeks.

    <p>Boot's No 7 Protect&Perfect Beauty Serum caused riots in Britain after a BBC program claimed that it really did work to smooth skin and reduce fine lines. In fact, sales of the 'wonder cream" increased 2000% on the day the program aired. I heard about it from British friends and from an article in the London Daily Mail.<br />
    In America a comparable product is sold called No 7 Restore&Renew. Not very expensive--it sells for $21.99 for one ounce which seems to last for more than a month. <br />
    I bought Restore&Renew at a local CVS. It is also sold at Target and on CVS and Target online. And I think it is quite good, especially for smoothing those little under eye lines that seem to deepen on cold, dry winter nights. <br />
    It is not at all greasy which I find especially appealing. And it even seems to reduce the size of your pores which it doesn't even claim to do.<br />
    I am just about to order another tube. It's a long winter ahead. </p>
