Copper Amino Isolate Lipid (CAIL) 1% is the latest addition to NIOD’s core regimen collection, branching from the concept of NIOD’s multi-award-winning Copper Amino Isolate Serum through a patented, re-engineered format of copper peptides.
In general, healthy-looking skin maintains a careful balance of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), extracellular proteins such as collagen and elastin, and epidermal surface lipids, corneocytes, adipocytes, and sebocytes.
Presenting as a delicate blue gel-like system, CAIL 1% offers a highly-focused effort to target all of the aforementioned skin components through lipophilic pathways, elevating skin to optimal conditions to enhance volume and resilience. These ancillary benefits result in skin that appears lifted and more elastic, with the look of wrinkles improved and skin tone radiance enhanced. Designed for PM use, the formula’s unique texture melts into a comfortable oil-like feel upon application.
PRO-SKIN HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES Tripeptide-1 (Palmitoyl) Copper The formula incorporates a solubilised format of Palmitoyl-GHK-Cu at a 1% concentration by weight. Palmitoyl-GHK-Cu is an upgrade on GHK-Cu incorporated into a formula by a patented process that was developed by NIOD over an extensive two-year period. It offers GHK-Cu - a compound found in nature and originally isolated from human plasma - with a Palmitoyl group attached to its structure for improved lipophilic behaviour, resulting in enhanced skin affinity and improved delivery into the stratum corneum. This peptide works synergistically with other technologies to restore and maintain a youthful appearance of the skin. Zizanoic Vetiver A unique upcycled ingredient, derived from the roots of vetiver exhausted by the fragrance industry, Zizanoic Vetiver has properties to support skin tonicity, volume and firmness.
Over time, reduced adipocyte integrity and a decrease in the volume of facial fat affects the mechanical stability of the skin and leads to aging. The appearance of aging can also be attributed to reduced sebum production, decreased keratinisation, and a reduction in the adipocytes capacity to store fat. Zizanoic Vetiver promotes the improved appearance of skin volume redefinition and firmness while promoting an overall plumping effect.
Patented Dihydrodiisoeugenol Complex With aging, the distribution of fat tissue changes due to the inhibition of adipogenesis and increased fat degradation via stimulated lipolysis.
Patented Dihydrodiisoeugenol Complex is a novel, multi-faceted approach to enhancing skin resilience using a dual mode of action to approach the decline in subcutaneous fat.
This unique complex aims to counteract the appearance of a decrease in adipose tissue by improving the elasticity and firmness of the skin, particularly when applied to the cheeks and jawline.
Aphanizomenon Aquaflo A newly-discovered blue-green algae that is rich in vitamins, amino acids, and minerals to promote the replenishment of the superficial protective barrier of the stratum corneum.
Aphanizomenon Aquaflo functions to smoothen the skin surface for a younger appearance by facilitating the skin's natural moisturizing factors. Prominent in Proline and Lysine, Aphanizomenon Aquaflo improves skin elasticity and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Plant-derived Squalane A vegetable hydrocarbon renowned for its emollience and capacity to maintain skin's moisture barrier, squalane is an excellent hydrator that can replenish hydration, imparting suppleness and flexibility to the skin.
