About Us

Active Peptide Company is headquartered in Massachusetts, USA. We are a global peptide manufacturer specialized in producing high quality cosmetic peptides and API intermediates.

Dr. Lee Gengli Yu is the founder and CEO of the company. After receiving his PhD in organic synthesis from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1999, Dr. Yu worked as a research scientist rotating in universities and institutes around the USA. While leading projects at Tufts University, he developed advanced technologies in peptide synthesis, especially optimized liquid-phase technology for large-scale peptide production.

Inspired by Dr. Loren Pickart’s discovery of GHK-Cu, Dr. Yu decided to establish Active Peptide Company in 2012 with the mission to provide cosmetic companies, distributors, and researchers with high purity peptides at the best prices.
