NIOD CAIS & MMHC

    NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 5% and Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex by India Knight

    I’ve written about the sciency goodness of these two before, and I will go cross-eyed if I have to explain it in techy terms again. You can search for the relevant column if you burn with desire to know precisely why everyone became obsessed with this serum when it first came out. At this point I feel it’s more helpful to tell you that this is simply the best serum I have ever used (I use it in conjunction with the MMHC).

    The reason I think this is because it has a transformative effect on the skin within days — give it five to see a real difference in tone and texture. Now, again, you shouldn’t just buy it willy-nilly; it is specifically made to help ageing skin. Everyone’s skin is ageing, obviously, from the day they’re born (bleak thought), but this is really one for the middle-aged woman — 40-plus, I’d say. It’s not supposed to regulate oil production or the like, but I find that it makes me wake up enviably matt, as if I’d cleverly powdered my face in my sleep. Available in 1% or 5% strength — I’d go for the 5% unless you know yourself to have very sensitive skin.

  • Copper The Latest Beauty Buzzword

    To be precise, we’re really talking copper peptides here. “Copper itself is actually a very bad supplement for the skin as it oxidises,” says Brandon Truaxe, the founder of Deciem, which makes one of the hottest skincare products on the market, NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum £38, known as CAIS.

    “However, copper peptides, which actually contain no copper, are extremely important as they have a high chemical affinity to copper – hence the name – and they draw in copper from your body to allow repair and protection. Copper peptides in human plasma decline by about 70% by the age of 60 and, therefore despite the presence of copper in the body, it cannot use it for repair.”

    CAIS, which needs to be mixed with an activator before first use, is said to improve everything from skin texture and radiance to fine lines in about a week. Dedicated fans will be pleased to hear that, as CAIS now has a new stabilising agent, it no longer needs to be kept in the fridge after opening.

    Other products to try are IS Clinical Copper Firming Mist £32 and Sarah Chapman Skinesis Liquid Facial Resurfacer £36, a great daily exfoliator packed with a peptide infusion including a copper active to help sebum control.

    It isn’t just about creams and potions.

  • What’s all the fuss about… copper?

    In keeping with festive tradition, I would love to bring you news of a miracle product containing gold, frankincense and myrrh. But that would be so 1 AD. This year’s wonder-substance is copper, acclaimed for its antibacterial properties and stimulation of collagen and hyaluronic acid – key ingredients in maintaining skin elasticity.

    NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Serum is part of a brilliant range launched this year that delivers cutting-edge science at accessible prices. The Serum comes in two concentrations: one per cent and five per cent. Both make bold claims about combating the villains of maturing skin – uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores, sagging, wrinkles and lines – by keeping the skin in a heightened state of repair. It does this not by prompting inflammation, now cited as an ageing trigger, but by a signalling mechanism that encourages the body to respond to collagen breakdown more quickly than it otherwise would.

    The serum has definitely blurred the pigmentation on my cheek, and I tried it on a cut, which pretty much healed overnight. If you generally eschew hi-tech beauty, you may want to make an exception for NIOD’s CAIS.

  • SMOOTH OPERATORS

    If the front row has been looking a little more youthful than usual, it’s not due to a let-up in the Paris schedule.

    Their secret? NIOD, a technologically advanced skincare range founded by Brandon Truaxe, whose Toronto based HQ bears the legend The Abnormal Beauty Company because he refuses to pander to standard beauty-industry bullshit.

    NIOD’s growing list of devotees certainly swear there’s something abnormal about the products, which range from an unlikely looking bright-blue liquid (Copper Amino Isolate Serum) to a velvety-smooth caramel-coloured cream (Hydration Vaccine).

    It’s this last unguent that has fashion folk most excited: so smooth does it render skin that users can’t stop stroking their own faces in wonder. I’m suspicious of hype, but I’ve never heard so many fashion mavens rave so much. Even better: it isn’t stupidly pricey.

    Intensive Care

    The wrong serum can be an expensive mistake, but here’s one that really works.

    When I was young, serum didn’t exist unless you were a medic: serum is blood plasma with the blood cells and clotting factors removed. You only heard the word in the context of the shlockier movies, when it sometimes popped up preceded by the word “truth”.

    I’m not saying this to remind you of my great age, but rather of the fact that the beauty industry invents things, gives them spurious names and then spends an astronomical fortune persuading you that you need them desperately. Sometimes you do, sometimes you don’t. Put it this way: thousands of years’ worth of raving beauties didn’t know what serum was. On the other hand, they also put lead on their face, and modern loo roll wasn’t invented until the 19th century.

    ANNABEL RIVKIN’S CABINET OF WONDERS

    Let’s dive in, shall we? I am obsessed with Niod Copper Amino Isolate Serum. I’ve always believed in serums but – if I’m honest – more in theory than in practice. I believed because it was comforting to believe, rather than because I’d witnessed actual proof. Like God.

    So now that I’ve professed my faith, allow me to evangelise: this boringly named serum places the skin in a permanent state of heightened repair. Its copper tripeptide-1 is responsible for a wide range of skin-health functions, including wound healing, collagen synthesis, blood vessel development and anti-inflammatory responses. Other products do contain this peptide but not in such an extraordinarily high concentration.
