Skin Biology's products are designed by Loren Pickart PhD, who discovered GHK and the rejuvenating actions of selected copper peptides. Dr. Pickart often has said, "You can't just dump copper into your mixing pot or the copper will bind to the wrong ingredients and inactivate the good effects of copper on the skin." Once he tested 10 creams used for skin care at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, WA. When GHK-copper was added to the creams, only two creams improved the condition of human skin. The remainder seemed to irritate the skin.
All of Skin Biology's products are based on formulas used in human studies that determined their safety and rejuvenating actions in terms of the resultant look and beauty of skin and hair. Virtually none of the many other competing copper peptide products available are based on actual studies.
WELCOME! I am Dr. Loren Pickart. I started my research on copper peptides and aging a few decades ago with the dream that one day every individual will enjoy flawless skin and a healthy body until old age.
I was fortunate to discover a very special molecule – the copper peptide GHK-Cu, which may be the closest thing to the Fountain of Youth we can imagine today.
I spent many years perfecting copper peptides, eventually creating the second generation of copper-peptides or Skin Rejuvenating Copper Peptides (SRCPs). Even though scientists may be still far away from defeating aging, the good news is that you can already help your skin appear younger and have an especially flawless look with my exclusive line of copper peptide based products here at Skin Biology.
We sell more than just a collection of copper peptide products! I personally design the comprehensive skin care programs that you'll find on this website which are similar to what professional cosmetologists use. I have dedicated my life to the creation of highly effective copper peptide formulas that will rejuvenate your skin's appearance and solve a variety of skin problems*. We are your one-stop skin care resource so you can keep up-to-date with current advances in skin care. ALL of my products are based on real published science – this is quality you can trust.

Happy with my Skin, Copper Peptides, and with Skin Biology
"I must confess, I think I'm Skinbio's biggest fan. I discovered Dr. Pickart's work almost 10 years ago now and have loved everything: the products, the customer service, the abundance of science available to customers. How lucky you are to be a part of it all!
And, in truth, it is because my skin is great. Aaaand who do I have to thank for that?? Duh! Skinbio!
As a working model, I am exposed to some nasty makeup, sometimes long hours, sometimes mild dehydration, & fast-paced, high-stress environs. I've used CP serums, Exfol, I love love love Emu oil." MH*
Good Skin Despite Adversity
"There is a woman in my support group who swears by your products. She also absolutely loves them. She was a manager for many years in the beauty department in Saks, Atlanta, is over 75, but looks like she's in her early 50's...she's the epitome of southern beauty and grace. She has gone to lunch with me twice, and shared her beauty "secrets" with me then." JW*
The story of copper peptides began in 1973 when Loren Pickart, then a young graduate student working on his PhD thesis in San Francisco, observed an amazing rejuvenating effect that young blood (from persons 20-25 years of age) had on old liver cells. He was able to isolate the factor responsible for the superiority of young blood and identify it as the copper binding tripeptide GHK-Cu (Gly-His-Lys and copper).
In almost five decades of research that followed, Dr. Pickart and other researchers from all around the world discovered the many amazing qualities of this molecule. The most dramatic effect was GHK's ability to reverse the appearance of aging skin and to reduce the appearance of visible signs of skin damage.
In 1985 Dr. Pickart started a company called Procyte to turn his discoveries into useful products. Between 1986 and 1990 he found that creams containing GHK-Cu, when applied to human skin, visibly increased skin elasticity, improved the appearance of wrinkles and pigmentation and resulted in fading unsightly imperfections such as blemishes. The products also had stunning effects on hair beauty and luster.
Today Dr. Pickart's Skin Biology continues investigating useful properties of the GHK-Cu peptide. Dr. Pickart also developed a second generation of stronger copper-peptides with even more pronounced ability to reverse visible signs of aging.
In the five decades that he spent researching causes and mechanisms of skin aging, Dr. Pickart also couldn't help noticing how often cosmetic products that promise rejuvenation actually do the opposite, damaging the skin and hampering its regenerative processes.
Trying to find an alternative to unnatural and damaging skin treatments, he developed his own natural and gentle approach that mimics young skin biology and brings forward its natural beauty and healthy appearance.
Dr. Loren Pickart has a BA in Chemistry and Mathematics from the University of Minnesota and a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of California, San Francisco.
He is a member of the Wound Healing Society, the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, the American Chemical Society, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
His recent presentations include the Wound Healing Society (2008, 2009, 2011) and publications in Biomaterials (2008), the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine Therapeutics Book (2009), the SOFW Journal 2010, Peelings (in Russian) (2010), Kosmetik International (in Russian) (2010); the Reverse Skin Aging (book) 2nd Edition 2011, the Journal of Aging Research & Clinical Practice (2012), and Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity (2012).
