Colloidal copper stimulates collagen, elastin, and glycosaminoglycans in the skin. It thickens and tightens the skin, helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, acts as a potent antioxidant for the skin, gives the skin a nice healthy glow, and it also helps the skin to retain moisture.
There’s also what’s known as copper-dependent enzymes in the dermal layer. There are about thirteen copper-dependent enzymes in the skin, and their job is to repair, restore, rejuvenate, and beautify the skin; make it healthier and better-looking. When you apply copper to the skin, it activates those enzymes to go to work and do their job which is to restore the skin’s health.
The fact that copper beautifies the skin has been known for thousands of years. Over two thousand years ago, Cleopatra and other women of royalty made their own secret beautifying creams and lotions, and they would use copper powder. How they knew that copper beautified the skin I don’t know, but they did. Copper was their secret ingredient. They used copper powder in their own homemade concoctions to beautify the skin. They purposely kept it a secret because they wanted to be the most beautiful women of the land and they didn’t want anybody else to know about it.
