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? I’ve chatted with Deciem’s co-CEO, Nicola Kilner, to get the lowdown on copper peptides and how you can make sure you buy a product that works.  Continue Reading
