Wow. April flew by a little too quick for my liking. With all the madness of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia I completely lost track of time.

Unfortunately when an ingredient becomes trendy we see the market flooded with products claiming to be using the best of it. Copper Peptides are that hot-new ingredient right now but what exactly are they?
