Skincare for the Hyper-Educated | A Brand of @deciem

(Long read 🙈... but there are free things at the end.) Say a premature hello (launching in late May) to MMHC2, the next generation of NIOD's Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex. This edition introduces 2 new forms of HA compounds, including a first-ever use of direct hyaluronic acid not in sodium salt form, for a total of 15 forms of HA, HA precursors and an HA support technology. The most notable addition to the formula is a rare direct form of HA. Almost universally in the world of beauty, "hyaluronic acid" is used loosely to refer to "sodium hyaluronate" which is the sodium salt of HA. When products refer to "hyaluronic acid", in almost every case the reference is to forms of "sodium hyaluronate" which appears in the ingredients. While several sodium salt forms of HA are in MMHC2, the formula now includes 1.0% direct hyaluronic acid which appears as "hyaluronic acid" in the ingredients. This inclusion is rare for a broad range of formulation and commercial reasons. Direct HA offers pro-repair support beyond water hydration that sodium hyaluronate offers, for improvements to the elastic look of skin. The formula also introduces a marine form of HA (exopolysaccharides) from marine genus Pseudoaltermonas sp., sustainably sourced from Brittany, to supports water content of tissues in exposure to temperature variations. Finally, MMHC2 introduces an HA support system of adaptogenic clary sage flavonoids and phenylethanoid glycosides to form a water-protective barrier for dermal water retention. These additions join MMHC's original selection of multiple HA forms in varying molecular weights. MMHC2 costs more to make but we have kept the price the same, because your love has allowed us to grow without spending so much money on advertising ❤️. Explore MMHC2 at www.niod.com. (Now the free things: we have limited stock of the original MMHC in our London and Toronto stores. During the transition to MMHC2, until stock lasts, these stores will offer a free MMHC (30 or 15ml based on stock) with any NIOD purchase. Ongoing innovation is a nightmare because you need to do something with existing products. Our solution is to give it away to our loyal supporters.) ❤️❤️❤️🐒

A bit of break from science... Our peaceful yet rigid stainless steel Spoon (S) has arrived for optional use with higher-viscosity NIOD products offered in a jar including FM, HV and NEC. Some of us still prefer to get our clean hands dirty but S is now available on niod.com if you prefer a more artful approach 🥄 (This break from science won't last long as big things are coming in May, June and July 🙈).

Our Non-Acid Acid Precursor (NAAP) has just won best in The Exfoliator category in Tatler's Beauty Awards 2017. We said non-acids are better than acids for exfoliation and Tatler agrees. Now that awards fluff is out of the way, a few serious bits: bit 1) exfoliating acids like AHA and BHA work fast and are very effective, but they may cause inflammation; modern non-acid options work more slowly but don't cause any inflammation; bit 2) AHA/BHA acids are cheap (for you and us) whereas non-acids forms are new technologies that are still more expensive (for you and us); bit 3) a big shoutout (the scream kind) to @victoriahealth and Gill for sending us to an intensive care unit when NAAP launched last year and she had mistaken an allergic reaction to raw tuna for one to NAAP; bit 4) @victoriahealth is sensitive so, for clarity, we really love them. 🐒❤️

We are addicted to NIOD's portfolio of masque treatments. Flavanone Mud (FM) is the expert in broad-spectrum decongestion at multiple depths for immediate clarity that improves with continued use. Mastic Must (MM) is focused on pore and surface purity and immediate texture evenness. Myrrh Clay (MC) offers visible tightening based on traditional principles. And Voicemail Masque (VM) is the overnight treatment that restores a bright, healthy look after just one use. They work. They feel beautiful. And their fragrance-free aroma is reminiscent of earth itself. Our biggest problem is that we want to use all of them all the time. (Hint: A set of some form will be coming soon.)

NIOD's Voicemail Masque is finally here. Living cells communicate with one another and this cellular communication is an essential aspect of life and health. Cellular communication breaks down with age and under stressful conditions, and this breakdown directly impairs the youthful appearance of skin, resulting in dullness and a compromised tone. Topical formulations today focus on functions of specific skin cells, but the communication between healthy cells itself is largely overlooked. 
Voicemail Masque is a nighttime leave-on masque treatment that fights many of the signs associated with impaired cellular communication. The formula is a suspension of plant stem cells from mountain flowers and narrowleaf plantain, as well as highly-purified polyphenols rich in hydroxycinnamic acid from oregano leaves. The suspension medium is comprised of advanced adaptive silicones that lengthen dermal exposure time frame, supported by a fractionated spectrum of molecular weight (instead of a specific one) of hyaluronic acid, just as naturally found in the body. The result is skin that looks healthy, well-rested, bright and uniform from the very first use.

Myrrh Clay is here. 
MC is a treatment masque that visibly firms the skin, borrowing from a triangle of Ayurvedic, Unani and traditional Chinese studies of medicine. MC offers an instant and visible tightening of the skin immediately and without forming a noticeable film on the surface of the skin as is common with modern skin firming formulations. Myrrh and its very fragrant resin, derived from tree sap, are recognised in Ayurvedic, Unani and traditional Chinese studies of medicine for their high content of terpenoids and sesquiterpenes. While traditional topical uses of myrrh were for wound healing, as an antioxidant and for age prevention, the main benefit of topically-applied myrrh is visible and immediate firmness to the skin. MC combines a highly-purified myrrh with isolated polyphenols from strawberry leaves (Ayurveda) and concentrated Wu Zhu Yu (from traditional Chinese medicine), all supporting a visible firming effect in a nutrient base of humic-rich peat and Indian Multani Mitti clay.

MM is a transparent masque for efficient, yet innocuous, cleaning and visible refinement of pores and impurities, resulting in immediate and maintainable visible reduction in both the number and the size of pores. (Note: It is not possible to modify the genetically-determined number or size of pores as apparent in optimal skin condition. However, pores do become more apparent in number and size with ageing and environmental exposure. MM works to restore the appearance of pores to an ideal state, within individual genetic limits.)
In line with yešti's commitment to traditional approaches to science, MM uses a highly-densified sap from Greek mastic trees. It is a dense gum that binds to congestion like gum would but it doesn't bind to oil or water just like gum wouldn't. It purifies and shrinks the look of pores without drying. The sap is a powerful anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It's definitely Greek in every way but borrowed by Middle Eastern medicine and called Arabic Gum which should not be confused with the very common substance known as Gum Arabic. The sap in MM is sustainably sourced and is purified in a very precise bio-technology lab with extremely high purity. #DECIEM #NIOD #TheAbnormalBeautyCompany

We have worked very hard to stabilize NIOD's Copper Amino Isolate Serum but we have just discovered that this formula cannot withstand blushing: it turns pink. We are so humbled that CAIS has been chosen as Best Serum in Cosmo Beauty Awards 2016. We are blushing. CAIS is blushing. And we now have much more work to do.

Contrary to traditional wisdom, more of a good thing could actually be even more good. Since many NIOD devotees use Neck Elasticity Catalyst (NEC) as if it were called Body Elasticity Catalyst, we are proud to launch a larger 100ml size of NEC.

Copper Tripeptide GHK-Cu is a peptide found in nature and originally isolated from human plasma. The concentration of this peptide in human plasma continues to drop with aging past late teenage years and this drop exceeds 60% by age 60. The peptide is naturally responsible for activation of a wide range of skin health functions, including wound healing, immune function, collagen synthesis, blood vessel development, fibroblast production and anti-inflammatory responses. NIOD's Copper Amino Isolate Serum 1.00% contains an extraordinarily high 1.00% concentration of pure copper peptides in a superbly stabilized form to promote many signs of health. #NIOD

NIOD's Sanskrit Saponins blushed so much from everyone's love that it has become more plump. We are so excited to share that SS is now also available in a larger 180ml format. (SS is a viscous and intense cleaning balm for the face formulated with highly-concentrated, very-unrefined Ayurvedic plant surfactants unsupported by any modern cleaning technology. SS contains no purified or synthetic surfactants, sulphates, oils, esters or micellar technologies. It is a pH-balanced suspension of the amino acid, Lysine, in saponins from the Ayurvedic plants shikakai and sapindus mukorossi.) #NIOD #sanskritsaponins

Radiance has just become more refined with Photography Fluid Tan, Opacity 8%. This serum-textured surface treatment complements the approach of NIOD's Photography Fluid, Opacity 12% by balancing light absorption effects (in contrast to light reflection focus of PF 12%) with selective reflectiveness of darker interference pigments. Like PF 12%, this effort is supported by perfecting prisms and topical photo-finishing technologies to offer radiance in life and specifically through the camera lens. The high-definition technologies in PF 8% include suspending bio-derivatives of Iceland moss, chromatic interference pigments of bronze and gold, caramel saccharides and filmogenic polymers. 
PF 8% can be used on its own to add natural golden tan radiance to any skin tone. It can be used alongside PF 12% to create a natural and blended contouring effect (with PF 12% used above the cheekbones and PF 8% used below). PF 8% can also be used alongside traditional colour formulations.

Something that sounds really complicated (because it is really complicated) is here. NIOD is humbled to introduce Superoxide Dismutase Saccharide Mist (SDSM). SDSM is a dermal treatment mist––not to be classified mistakenly as a "toner"––that acts as a fundamental daily force against many forms of oxidative stress, dermal water loss and inflammation, all of which contribute to loss of visible skin quality over time. The large 240ml mist format allows for generous and frequent application to the face and the body as desired. 
SDSM contains a Yeast-Derived Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) which is arguably the most important force against oxidation in the human body. SOD is so powerful that topical studies have shown that it reduces UVB-induced inflammation by 100%. While SDSM appears to be a simple mist, it contains a near-saturation concentration of SOD. SDSM also contains an inflammation-fighting molecule from the North American Four O'Clock Flower as well as Marine Exopolysaccharides that prevent dermal water loss even in the most extreme conditions. 
SDSM is intended to be used twice daily after cleaning and before CAIS. It can be used throughout the day as desired. It can also be applied on body areas.

NAAP is a non-acidic alternative to acid-based epidermal resurfacing. Instead of using direct acids like AHA/BHA or retinoids that are common in skincare, NAAP uses fermentation bio-derivatives and amino isolates that act as precursors to skin-compatible acids, encouraging visible radiance and surface regularity without the redness and inflammation associated with acids. NAAP was found non-irritating in an independent Human Repeat Insult Patch Test. #NIOD
