What is DMSO dimethyl sulfoxide

What is DMSO?

DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) is a small molecule best known for its ability to ease the delivery of active ingredients and boost their efficacy.

Dr. Pickart discovered that when DMSO is expertly blended into a topical formula together, DMSO supports and enhances important actions of GHK-Cu.

What are the actions that topical DMSO seems to enhance? Here is a brief summation:

1. GHK-Cu supports the skin’s own antioxidant system, helping to neutralize free radicals of oxygen and slow down visible skin damage. As a very small molecule, GHK can get into the tight places between cells, binding, and breaking down toxic byproducts of oxidation.

DMSO supports as an additional antioxidant that just like GHK is very small. Together, they enhance one other, effectively boosting the skin’s antioxidant defense.

2. GHK-Cu supports the skin’s natural rejuvenative processes, creating a youthfully resilient appearance.

DMSO supports by helping soak GHK-Cu into the stratum corneum, significantly boosting its effect. Unlike over-the-counter cosmetic products that often use detergents, alcohol, or acetone to assist delivery of active ingredients, DMSO is both safe and effective. It works by gently guiding GHK in such a manner that no damage to the protective layers of skin takes place.

3. GHK and DMSO on their own have been known to improve overall skin appearance, visibly reduce lines/wrinkles, improve sagging skin, and fade the look of discoloration.

DMSO supports by accelerating the anti aging effects of GHK-Cu. Clients report skin that looks vibrantly brighter, less aged, and an enhanced skin texture that is smoother even from the first application*.


DMSO and GHK are a perfect match. Both are small molecules. Both support your skin’s own antioxidant defense. Both are safe and non-toxic.

"Just wanted to let u know I LOVE the new GHK-Cu Smoothing and Soothing Serum. From the first night i used it, I awoke to smoother softer clearer bright skin... nothing (not even your other great products I have tried) has shown such beautiful results so quickly and each consecutive night that I use it my facial skin improves.

Its amazing! Just came back to try and order another sample and so relieved you are now offering the full size for sale. Thank you!" —K.H.*

"Hi, I must say this is the first product I have tried and used from Skin Biology. I have only used this I have NOT tried my copper peptide kit that I ordered yet.... I LOVE this serum.

This serum gives results quickly!! I use a drop of it on a damp face. I am 46 years old and this serum has made my skin look like glass. I like that it has No fragrance and absorbs quickly without any greasy or filmy feel. I have ice pick marks on my chin and it has helped tighten their appearance and the appearance of fine lines. It has also firmed my skin. I have not had any adverse reactions.

My results keep getting better with every use!! I only use in the morning then I follow up with all my other anti aging routine. I think this serum is a winner. I can't wait to try my trial kit too!! Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this fabulous product trial!!!" —F.W.*

"OMG ... I love your new Crepey skin product!! I am 57 and have been using it for about 3 weeks. Skin on my forearms looks less crepey! Yay! My problem is that I want to use it everywhere... Always love your products!!" —M.B.*

"Thank you again for providing such incredible products. I live and work in Beverly Hills (one of the most aesthetically driven places on Earth, LOL) and have been receiving many compliments on my skin. I happily provide them your website and my glowing recommendations. Thanks for keeping so many people radiant and happy." —T.*


"This product works, and it works fast. I am using it on my arms and legs, and have seen about 60% improvement in both feel and appearance just a week. Before using this product, the skin had a map-like quality, with all kinds of fine crinkles. It looked cracked, just as clay soil that has baked in the summer sun looks. I was using all kinds of scrubs and oils, to no avail. I look forward to seeing the results after a month. I am 63." —G.*

"I have been using only Skin Biology for 10 years. I am now 58. I have no wrinkles yet some slight loss of tightness. The skin on my body is the same. The GHK-Cu is wonderful. I also use your hair products and not one grey hair at this stage. I am so grateful for your research and your integrity in your product."
