In researching copper peptides creams I read that in one study" comparing the effect of tretinoin & copper tripeptides in a culture of dermal fibroblasts , tretinoin was found to stimulate the secretion of different fibroblast growth factors. Similar effects were not observed with copper tripeptides.
a few industry-sponsored studies have reported some improvement in fine wrinkles, facial pigmentation....
do you think that this was proof that it just work like any other moisturizer ?

No, this is not the study comparing copper peptides and tretinoin in fibroblasts.
