What is NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Lipid?

NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Lipid 1%, or CAIL as it will most likely come to be known as, is the latest addition to NIOD’s core regimen collection.

It stems from NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Serum (that I can’t live without), however, it additionally helps to build skin’s barrier function and increases skin’s elasticity and overall skin health.

  • Builds and enhances skin barrier function, elasticity and skin integerity
  • Has a blue gel-like texture that melts into a comfortable oil-like feel upon application
  • Designed to target glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), Collagen, Elastin, & epidermal surface lipids, Corneocytes, Adipocytes, and Sebocytes to improve improve volume & relisience

NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Lipid – Actives & Technologies

There is some amazing technology going on in NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Lipid 1%

Tripeptide-1 (Palmitoyl) Copper

A solubilised format of pure Palmitoyl-GHK-Cu at a 1% concentration by weight is a peptide with enhanced skin affinity that works to synergistically to restore and maintain a youthful appearance of the skin. It is great for healing, immune function, collagen synthesis, fibroblast production and anti-inflammatory responses.

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. It works to redefine skin volume and firmness and gives an overall plumping effect.

Patented Dihydrodiisoeugenol Complex

A novel, multi-faceted approach to enhancing skin resilience using a dual mode of action to approach the decline in subcutaneous fat experienced with ageing. It works 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

This is a newly-discovered blue-green algae that’s rich in vitamins, amino acids, and minerals. It works to promote the replenishment of the superficial protective barrier of the stratum corneum, boosting the skin’s natural moisturising factors to smooth out the surface and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Plant-derived Squalane

Squalane is in here to maintain skin’s moisture barrier, replenish hydration and make skin supple and flexible.

My Review

So I have a sample winging its way to me right now, and I literally cannot wait to try it. As soon as I have, I will share more info. For those that are familiar with CAIS (which is an absolute must have for me), it is going to be a really different consistency to the serum. The squalane within the new formula means it has excellent moisturising benefits. It has been created to sit alongside CAIS, not replace it.

Stay tuned for more information once I have tried it. I am so excited to add this into my night time routine.
