If you're short on time:
💧Melissa from the lab is mixing the Activator & Copper Concentrate serum from NIOD's Copper Amino Isolate Serum 2:1 (CAIS2).
💧The colour change upon mixing is due to GHK binding with Copper Ions to produce 1% of GHK Cu whilst 1% of GHK is left in free-form.
💧GHK-Cu & GHK, in general, activate skin health functions such as repair, collagen synthesis and anti-inflammatory responses.
💧CAIS2 is a pro-health and pro-collagen formula to target general skin health and various signs of aging.
If you're tall on time (and because we really like science):
GHK and GHK-Cu are found in nature and in human plasma. The natural role of these peptides in the human body includes the activation of various skin health functions such as skin repair, immune function, the synthesis of collagen and fibroblasts as well as anti-inflammatory responses. The concentration of these peptides in human plasma declines with aging past the late teenage years and this decline exceeds 60% by the age of 60.
CAIS2 is a pro-repair, pro-collagen serum that contains a high 2% concentration of GHK and GHK-Cu to target various signs of skin aging including visible textural damage, uneven tone and visibly enlarged pores while promoting general skin health and radiance. Once the Activator and Copper Concentrate Serum supplied are mixed together, the 2% of pure GHK peptide separates - 1% branches with Copper Ions to form the freshly assembled GHK-Cu (Copper Peptides) while 1% remains as the free-form, pro-collagen GHK peptide.
Finally, this updated formula includes collagen-support peptides, Tripeptide-29, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2 and Trifluoroacetyl Tripeptide-2. The base system of CAIS2 combines monodispersed, plant-derived glycogen, penetration-enhancing Myristoyl Nonapeptide-3 and cross-linked hyaluronic acid which work synergistically with GHK and GHK-Cu to support healthy skin renewal and collagen quantity for firmer, healthier and more even skin with continued use.
