Palmitoyl Tripeptide–1 (Pal-GHK)
Pal-GHK is a hybrid synthetic molecule made of one-part peptide and one-part fatty acid. The “Pal” segment of the name refers to palmitoyl, a well-known fatty acid and common component of mammalian cell membranes. The “GHK” component stands for the peptide sequence glycine-histidine-lysine. This is a small fraction of the much larger elastin protein and a potent stimulant of fibroblasts (cells that synthesize collagen, elastin, and other important proteins in the extracellular matrix of skin, bone and other connective tissues).
