Pal-GHK (also called palmitoyl tripeptide-1 and palmitoyl oligopeptide) is a synthetic peptide known for its effects on collagen, skin health, and skin pigment. Pal-GHK is a hybrid synthetic molecule made of one-part peptide and one-part fatty acid. “Pal” refers to palmitoyl, a well-known fatty acid. “GHK” component stands for the peptide sequence glycine-histidine-lysine. Palmitoyl oligopeptide (Pal-GHK) consists of a short chain of three amino acids (a.k.a. GHK peptide or glycine-histidine-lysine) connected to palmitic acid which is very similar to GHK-Cu. Palmitic acid is a fatty acid added to improve the peptide’s oil solubility and thus skin penetration. The peptide GHK is a fragment of type I collagen molecule and is believed to serve as a biological indicator of increased degradation of the skin matrix. When collagen is degraded, more of its small fragments get created in the body, including GHK which stimulate the feedback loop triggering the synthesis of new collagen as well as other components of the skin matrix. When the key skin matrix-producing cells (fibroblasts) detect increased levels of GHK, they “assume” that the skin matrix is being lost at a higher rate and begin synthesizing it more vigorously. GHK has been shown, in animal models, to stimulate fibroblast growth and reproduction, making it of interest for researchers interested in wound healing, skin repair, and tissue regeneration. The attachment of palmitoyl to GHK is being researched for its ability to boost skin and cell penetration in animal models, a property that could make the fatty acid useful in creams and topical ointments with potential cosmetic and medical uses
