Deciem’s NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1.00% contains an extraordinary concentration of pure copper tripeptide-1, a peptide that assists in wrinkle reduction for a smoother, firmer complexion. Copper peptides provide a pivotal role in healthy skin function, promoting collagen formation and reducing inflammation. With this powerful active at its core, we're confident that you'll see firmer and healthier skin when you use this serum continually.

Although the presence of this peptide in skin tissue declines as we age, NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum delivers a high concentration of copper tripeptide-1 in the form of an easy-to-use serum. When combined with a one-time activator that contains a blend of hydrating sodium hyaluronate and supportive peptides, the copper concentrate penetrates the skin’s surface working to replenish and invigorate. For those looking for a even heavier hit, the same Copper Amino Isolate Serum is made in a 5% formula to greater off set wrinkles and help smooth skin.

Tested for 30 days and recommended by Marta:
As members of the Truth In Aging community well know, one of my favorite ingredients is copper peptides. This ingredient is a powerful booster of collagen and restorer of hair with a long and rich research history going back to the 1970s. So Deciem’s NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1% had me at hello.

The copper used here is a tripeptide, meaning that it has been combined with three amino acids. I was able to mentally reference the fact that in my Truth Vitality Advanced Complex for hair, the key active is copper with five amino acids. What makes NIOD’s face serum neat is that it packages the copper tripeptide-1 part of the formula separately and you mix it with what they call an activator, a copper salt from two more amino acids.

The 1% that Deciem boasts about is actually worth the hubris, as research has been conducted at 0.68% and produced results on inflammation. Talking of hubris, it is claimed that this serum will make you younger looking in only five days. I am not so sure I can concur with that, but after a month of testing it, I am convinced that it should be part of my regimen.

I didn't particularly notice wrinkle reduction as a result of my test. That may come later. But where NIOD seemed to really be helping was with firming, especially my lower cheeks and sides of my mouth going to the chin. This is where sagging tends to begin for me and I believe that the copper peptides (along with ultrasound and LED) made a difference.

NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1% really is a serum and does not for one minute pose as a moisturizer or even as a serum that can be used on its own. My slightly oily skin can often wear a serum without the need to layer a moisturizer, but not in this case. Despite the low-molecular version of sodium hyaluronate, this serum is very drying without an additional moisturizer.

One reason for this may be that it includes myristoyl nonapeptide-3, a peptide that is said to mimic retinol and exfoliate the skin in order to encourage cell turnover. There’s not much research on this ingredient that I can find. I was intrigued to see some decapeptides and an oligopeptide and discovered that along with wheat protein they are marketed as an ingredient called Renaissance Powder. The manufacturer promises it will regenerate the skin and minimize scars.

There are a couple of potential toxins amongst the preservatives and solvent that could be irritating. I had no adverse reactions. Overall, I would heartily recommend this to anyone wanting to introduce collagen-boosting copper into their skincare routine.

Your Take...

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I have been using the Deciem NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1.00% for a couple of months now and absolutely love it. I can honestly say that no other product has been so effective so fast. My skin looks firmer and feels healthier ... and it started to show within a week of use. I have been recommending this product to all my friends.

  • 5 stars 5 out of 5

    I think is one of the best priced copper serums out there in the market compared to the other over priced copper stuff.

    Best way to use this...apply a drop directly on the face / area,..trying to apply this with fingertips like other serums does not work as this sinks into the skin too fast.

  • Hi Shalini
    While 30-somethings can certainly use this product, I'd say it's an optimal choice for 40 & 50 somethings.

  • 5 stars 4 out of 5

    What age group would this product be suited for? Can it be used by someone in their late 30s or early 40s?

  • Hi Marie, perhaps that question should be put to the EWG. It's impossible to be completely comprehensive, but maybe they'll look into them if you ask. In the meantime, you could take a look at our ingredients directory, where we have the safety and use profiles for thousands of ingredients: https://www.truthinaging.com/ingredients
    Otherwise, if you tell which ones you are interested in, I'd be glad to research them and add them to our directory.

  • Why are there several ingredients not listed in the SkinDeep database? This makes me hesitant to try if I cannot know the safety...

  • Hi Sherry, you could definitely use this along with ClarityRX. It's really just another couple of peptides and the copper peptides will boost the pro-collagen effects of the Matrixyl in ClarityRX. Actually, could be a very good combo. Let us know how you get on.

    I've been using NIOD's Copper Peptide serum, and I think nothing has given me as dramatic a result as this in a week. Thankfully, unlike other Copper Peptides, NIOD does not insist on too many dos and donts. In fact, they even have a 30% Vitamin C serum ELAN included in their Copper Peptide regimen.

  • I had started using ClarityRX Get Fit a couple of weeks prior to buying this copper serium and don't want to layer products that cancel each other out. Are these 2 products compatible? Also, the NIOD copper serum instructions also do not tell you how many droppers ..or drops.. to apply' as another reviewer mentioned. Any thoughts from Marta or the TIA community?

  • Hi Christian, I think that would be a great idea - Control and this copper serum would be very complimentary. Let us know how it works out.

  • Not a review, but a question... I see a previous reviewer is using this in combination with Your Best Face Control. I have been using Medik8 Firewall consistently, but am interested in trying Deciem’s NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum. Would you recommend layering Control over the Deciem serum, or applying them at separate times (for example, day and evneing)? I'm a fan of peptides such as Matrixyl and others found in both Control and Correct, so this intially seems liek a best-of-both-worlds pairing.

    Thoughts?

    It may be too early to say for sure, but I think this serum is slowly but surely lifting my skin. I've been taking zinc supplements, and I had noticed really bad sagging around my cheeks and double chin. I read a study online which said supplementing with zinc could potentially lead to copper deficiency, which in turn could cause loss of elasticity, leading to sagging skin (check the label of your multi-vitamins!) Before I read about it, I had tried a lot of products aimed at lifting sagging skin, some of which did help restore some firmness to the skin, but none of which actually got rid of the sagging. Only a week into using this serum, the sagging is about 50% back to normal! I don't know if it's just this product, or the combination (this + YBF control + Mitoq) somehow hit the spot, but I'll definitely keep using this and see if I observe further improvement.

    Well, it took longer for me to see results than 5 days, about the 10 day mark. Gradually over the month I noticed old acne scars and pigmentation were improving. I would describe it as a slow fade, so I am encouraged. The rough patches feel like the rest of my face now. At my regular time of the month for breakouts I at first had none, but they ended up being just a little late. My breakouts lasted for a shorter duration and my skin seemed to settle down quicker. Here is the part I was surprised at: no new discoloration left behind! As for my subcutaneous omnipresent pimple, he is nearly gone. Some days I can't feel it when I go in search.

    This serum suggests results over time. My initial experience leads me to consider this for continued use. I like the slow fade of unwanted skin issues and slow rising of healthier skin that happens simultaneously. I will continue using it. The only negative is the inclusion of phenoxyethanol, a potential irritant, last on the ingredients list.

    I have only started using this over the weekend, but I have an observation as well as a question.

    My observation is I think this product is extremely effective -- again, this after only 5 or so days of using it. I have taken to using it before I use the LED feature of the Lux Renew. I took to heart Marta's encouragement that using a serum before the LED is not only fine but she noted studies commenting on increasing effectiveness. I do, indeed, think the combination has accelerated the results. At 52, my skin is in good shape, mostly from avoiding the sun since I was 15 I think, but excellent skin care throughout my life has also helped. That said, I have noticed lines in my forehead that I was curious to see if there were ways to soften. I have absolutely noticed that happening with the Copper Amino Serum plus LED.

    My question though is this: is there a correct amount of the serum to use? There was no specific instruction with the product other than how to mix the serum and activator and to use it twice a day. I'm operating a bit in the dark and I was wondering if there was an optimal amount to be used. I know more isn't always better. But less isn't always great either! So if I could get some wisdom on this, I'd really appreciate it.

    I will keep on using the Copper serum along with the LED and see what happens over a month. I certainly am curious to watch what occurs!

    Hi,

    Preksha recommended some products for me, which included a couple of Deciem products:-

    ~ NIOD Fractionated Eye-Contour Concentrate Serum (15ml), and
    ~ NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1.00% (30ml).

    The NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1.00% (30ml @ $60.00 in the TIA Shop) is also available in a 15ml bottle in the UK @ £38.00, or the full 30ml size @ £60.00.
    Ingredients:-
    Aqua (Water), Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Ethoxydiglycol, Glycerin, Copper Tripeptide-1, Myristoyl Nonapeptide-3, Copper Lysinate/Prolinate, Zinc Palmitoyl Nonapeptide-14, Decapeptide-22, Ogliopeptide78, Palmitoyl Decapeptide-21, Methylglucoside Phosphate, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Pentylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, Glyceryl Caprylate, Phenylpropanol, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol.

    However, there is a NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum available in a 5% version in the UK too (15ml @ £130.00). The ingredients listed for this 5% Copper Amino Isolate Serum are as follows:-
    Ingredients:-
    ~ COPPER CONCENTRATE:-
    Glycerin, Copper Tripeptide-1, Aqua (Water), Methylglucoside Phosphate, Copper Lysinate/Prolinate, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol.
    ~ ACTIVATOR:-
    Aqua (Water), Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Glycerin, Dimethyl Isosorbide, Ethoxydiglycol, Decapeptide-22, Ogliopeptide-78, Palmitoyl Decapeptide-21, Zinc Palmitoyl Nonapeptide-14, Myristoyl Nonapeptide-3, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Pentylene Glycol, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Xanthan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol, Glyceryl Caprylate, Phenylpropanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol.

    Would you advise I started out with the NIOD 1% version, or should I risk the added power of the 5% Copper Amino Isolate Serum?

    I'd appreciate your advice!

    Many thanks,

    Lorna.
