As a highly-focused effort to maintain healthy-looking skin, this pro-repair, pro-collagen serum offers a novel approach to target all signs of skin aging indirectly.

This indirect approach departs from the traditional thinking of addressing visible aspects of skin aging individually and instead forms a foundation to respect skin health.

While the first generation of CAIS 1% contained direct GHK copper peptides (known as GHK-Cu), this second generation Copper Amino Isolate Serum 2:1 contains 2% of pure GHK peptide of which 1% branches with copper ions upon mixing with NIOD's patent-pending approach, forming 1% freshly-assembled, pro-repair GHK-Cu (copper peptides) and leaving 1% free-form, pro-collagen GHK peptide. This update also includes the addition of collagen-support peptides, Tripeptide-29, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2 and Trifluoroacetyl Tripeptide-2. The base system of CAIS2 combines mono-dispersed, plant-derived glycogen, penetration-enhancing Myristoyl Nonapeptide-3 and cross-linked hyaluronic acid. Finally, while CAIS required a neutral pH, CAIS2 is stable and effective in the pH range between 4.5 (acidic) and 7.4 (alkaline). CAIS2 does not require refrigeration.

PRO-HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES:

  • 1.0% Pure Undiluted Copper Tripeptide-1 (GHK-Cu) + 1.0% Pure Undiluted Tripeptide-1 (GHK): CAIS2 supplies 2% pure GHK peptide (Tripeptide-1) separate from copper ions. Upon mixing, 1% Copper Tripeptide-1 (GHK-Cu) is freshly formed as 1% of the GHK peptide branches with free copper ions, leaving 1% pure GHK in free form. Both GHK and GHK-Cu are found in nature and originally isolated from human plasma. The concentration of these peptides in human plasma continues to drop with ageing past late teenage years and this drop exceeds 60% by age 60. The natural role of these peptides as found in the human body includes activation of a wide range of skin health functions, including healing, immune function, collagen synthesis, fibroblast production and anti-inflammatory responses, while pure GHK offers strong pro-collagen support.

    Many topical anti-aging products contain variations of GHK and GHK-Cu 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.

    The high 2% concentration of GHK and GHK-Cu in CAIS2 targets signs of skin aging, including visible textural damage, uneven tone, visibly enlarged pores and a general lack of healthy radiance normally present in younger skin. In short, the skin will look healthier with continued visible improvements with continued use.

PRO-COLLAGEN TECHNOLOGIES

  • > 9.0% Pure Undiluted Tripeptide-29: This amino acid sequence of Glycine-Proline-Hydroxyproline supports healthy collagen and works synergistically with GHK and GHK-Cu in this function.
  • > 4.0% Complex of Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2 and Trifluroacetyl Tripeptide-2: While pro-collagen peptides broadly focus on collagen quantity, these advanced peptide technologies support healthy collagen quality and assembly for skin that looks firmer and more evenly modelled.

INTEGRITY AND DELIVERY TECHNOLOGIES

  • 0.10% Pure Mono-Dispersed Plant Glycogen: Glycogen is generally extracted from animal sources as a poly-dispersion. This advanced 100% plant-based mono-dispersed glycogen acts like hard spheres that protect the formulation peptides but break upon application for optimal dermal exposure.
  • > 9% Complex of Myristoyl Nonapeptide-3: This lipo-oligopeptide supports healthy skin renewal which is essential for penetration of technologies in this formulation and those used in any subsequent treatments.
  • Hyaluronic Acid Crosspolymer: A unique cross-linked non-animal form of hyaluronic acid helps with delivery of water and water-soluble actives through its non-equilibrium gel structure.

pH 4.6-5.6 | ALCOHOL-FREE | OIL-FREE | SILICONE-FREE | NUT-FREE | VEGAN | GLUTEN-FREE | CRUELTY-FREE

Returns & Exchanges

Once products leave the Socialite Beauty warehouse, all sales become final. Many products do not come with sanitary seals making it unsafe to put them back on the shelves. We want you as our customer to feel secure you're getting brand new, unused products from us. Because skin can take some time to adjust to new products as well as to detox from any changes, it is best to allow 2-3 weeks of use to see how your skin truly takes on new items. Sometimes a few uses alone is simply not enough time to let the new products get to work. If your product does have a seal and you would like to return it, please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased (info@socialitebeauty.ca) and include images of the sealed product. Provide your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a refund minus return shipping cost.

Love CAIS

Have been using this for a couple years now with Survival 0. Together they keep my skin even and hydrated. I haven’t had a breakout in ages.

Excellent for wound healing

I have oily acne prone skin and specifically purchased this for a boost in wound healing. This is a game changer for me. I struggle with deep, painful hormonal breakouts and this has helped tremendously in helping them heal faster and better (less pigmentation, smoother texture with no flaking). I am only one month in and noticed less breakouts, and the ones I get are less inflamed and painful. I use this serum in the day and retinoids in the evening and it has helped my skin become less sensitized while also making it softer and healthier. This is expensive but worth it and will last a while. I will definitely purchase when this runs out.

Can't live without

This is the foundation of my entire skincare regime. It goes on first after cleansing and absorbs very quickly. I've noticed huge improvements in the overall health of my skin. It's not like other products where you see immediate results, but it works to keep skin more stable (e.g. less hormonal breakouts, etc). Only downside is that there is a lot of information out there about not mixing with vitamin c and acids so you just have to test out what works for you. Overall I love it and won't be without it again.
