Copper gluconate is whats in American Crew Revitalize Serum and Spray. Its also the copper thats in the shampoo. I just bought a bottle of both, thats how I know why. They used to use the alanine/histidyl/lysine tri-amino copper complex thats in tricomin. They could because the parent company owns both tricomin and American Crew. Im reasoning that just pure copper gluconate has more peptides.
Here is an article on copper gluconate:

There are many different types of supplements on the market today, and it can be tough to weed out the prospective good supplements from a world of choices. For that reason, we’ve written this article to explain to you more about the element known as copper gluconate.
Copper gluconate, a readily absorbable type of copper, can be a great nutrient and asset for your health when used properly on a supplement basis. Copper, being an essential element that is used in all body tissues, is an important trace mineral especially during a period of bodily growth.
There are several functions and benefits of copper gluconate that make it a good choice for supplement usage. It is one of the most important blood anti oxidants, helping the body fight off the damage caused by rogue cells known as free radicals. Copper gluconate also prevents the rancidity of poly unsatured fatty acids, another helpful feature. Gluconate helps to keep cell membranes healthy and, equally importantly, helps red blood cells produce hemoglobin. Other studies have also shown this element to be helpful when dealing with high cholesterol, the healing of wounds, osteoporosis, benign prostatic hyperplasia, cardiac arrhythmia, hypoglycemia, peripheral vascular disease, and even rheumatoid arthritis.
When taking copper, you definitely need to exercise care with respect to your daily copper dosage. The average adult should take about 2 milligrams of copper gluconate per day. This can not be stressed enough, as copper can be toxic when taken overly.
If you are pregnant or nursing, it would be a good idea to check with your local doctor to see if a copper supplement will be OK for you. In addition, if you are on any types of medication, it would be a good idea to check with your physician to make sure a copper supplement will not interfere.
Alot of MPB researchers will recognize alot of what copper gluconate helps with are alot of the same problems that are associated with MPB.
Copper glycinate is in Nanoguard shampoo also. Both types of copper apparently contain copper peptides http://www.platinumskincare.com/blue-copper-peptide-cp-serum.htm.
Interesting stuff to say the least.
By the way, Tom, if you happen to see this. The new buzz about the three protiens that have been added to mice that apparently cause their skin to reorganize itself into hair follicles is exciting, BUT.............
Elaine Fuchs thought she had pretty much the same thing a few years back with beta-catenin. New hairs sprouting between dermal pockets (did you know the forehead has the most dermal pockets than anywhere on the body and the most hairs..........tiny ones. Which means it probably has a bunch of alpha five reductase DHT and might be why foreheads age so badly, but I digress). Anyhoo, the beta catenin-treated mice eventually developed benign tumors in their skin, very thick skin, abnormal ridges on their ears (away from the application area), and bumps on their feet. Ick.
The new discovery will have to be tested topically on rodents and then apes a great deal even before pre-clinical trials in human beings. It would be the height of irony if they made new follicles, but the follicles they made were susceptible to androgens and just started to degrade all over. 7-8 years at bare minimum................more like 9-12 if no sides in reality. Not holding my breath.
