As you know there is a lot of misinformation out there ! At www.platinumskincare.com there is a comparison chart of copper peptide, vitamin C & Retin A :
skin effect for : New collagen : copper peptide: 70%
Retin A : 40%
Vitamin C : 50%

Repair skin barrier : Copper peptide : yes
Retin A : no , it degrade it
Vitamin C : no
Is this true ?

In terms of "skin barrier" it is largely true. In terms of new collagen, I haven't seen any studies comparing them head-to-head, so this part is unclear. Besides, they don't say which type of collagen, which is also important.

I am also interested in a side by side comparison of Vit C serums and copper peptides in rebuilding collagen. Primarily I am spot treating depressed acne scarring with alpha/beta acids and hope for collagen formation as well. Dr--which product would be best for this purpose.

You mentioned the type of collagen rebuilding is important. Can you explain further please.
