NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 5.00% - 15ml (CAIS)
As a highly-focused effort to maintain healthy-looking skin, this serum offers a novel approach to target all signs of skin aging indirectly. This concentrated serum departs from the traditional thinking of addressing visible aspects of skin aging individually and instead forms a foundation to respect skin health.
1.0% PURE COPPER TRIPEPTIDE-1
Copper Tripeptide GHK-Cu is a peptide found in nature and originally isolated from human plasma. The concentration of this peptide in human plasma continues to drop with aging past late teenage years and this drop exceeds 60% by age 60. The natural role of this peptide as found in the human body includes activation of a wide range of skin health functions, including wound healing, immune function, collagen synthesis, blood vessel development, fibroblast production and anti-inflammatory responses.
Many topical anti-aging products contain variations of copper peptides in extremely small amounts. Generally, these variation peptides are found in parts per million in active technologies that topical products claim to include at high percentages but the final concentration of the variation peptides in topical products is generally less than 0.01% and these peptides would then have to be converted to even smaller amounts of pure copper peptides within the skin.
This product contains 1.0% pure Copper Tripeptide-1 (GHK-Cu) to be mixed with a specialized activator before first use. This extraordinary concentration targets signs of skin aging, including visible textural damage, uneven tone, visibly enlarged pores and a general lack of a visibly healthy radiance normally present in younger skin. In short, the skin will look younger starting within 5 days with continued visible improvements with continued use.
Copper/Proline/Lysine Peptide Stabilization ComplexSuperb award-winning technology to stabilize and enhance the activation of copper peptides provides an ideal base for the maintenance and delivery of the high concentration of copper peptides.
Hyaluronic Acid Crosspolymer
(Directly combined with a Very-Low-Molecular-Weight Hyaluronic Delivery Complex)A unique cross-linked non-animal form of hyaluronic acid that helps with delivery of water and water-soluble actives through its nonequilibrium gel structure, helping to maintain skin water content.
Recommended as a core NIOD regimen product to be used as the first step after cleansing before the application of other skin treatments. NIOD recommends the application of Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex (MMHC) after the application of this product.

What's the Difference between NIOD CAIS 1% and NIOD CAIS 5%?
The 1% is the right strength for most people for long term use. The 5% is for people with "stressed" skin (probably after a laser peel or if you barely get enough sleep) and is meant to be used short term. According to Brandon (founder of Deciem) you'd get faster results with the 5% but after a few months of consistent use of the 1% your results would be the same.
