Beauty Shortlist Awards 2021 Best International Natural Skincare Brand - Winner
Retinol is the gold standard for anti-aging, particularly in regards to stimulating collagen and elastin synthesis to target wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, and loss of elasticity and firmness. Unfortunately, it maybe too strong for those with sensitive, rosacea and ezema skin, while some people may also choose to avoid this active ingredient during pregnancy.
The first anti-aging serum from Twelve Beauty, Plant Perfection Gel Serum has been developed to target wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, as well as loss of elasticity and firmness due to collagen loss for all skin types, but in particular sensitive, rosacea, eczema and pregnant skin.
Enriched with Bidens Pilosa Extract, a botanical alternative to retinol, as well as trademarked and patented natural actives including Pepha®-Tight and Skinarch™, Plant Perfection has been formulated to transform the appearance of skin from the first application. Harnessing the latest skincare technology, the innovative formula creates an immediate tightening effect to the skin, whilst stimulating the natural production of quality collagen and elastin day and night, to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and increase skin elasticity and firmness.
With a lightweight gel-lotion texture, it is further infused with plant-derived amino acids, Bacillus Ferment, and Jojoba Oil, and Cottonseed Oil etc. to protect the skin barrier, support the health of both the dermis and epidermis, fight free radicals, and soothe inflammations.
Day after day, the complexion becomes smoother, firmer, tighter, and more radiant.
Formulated specifically to:
Stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis
Diminish the depth of wrinkles and fine lines
Improve skin firmness and suppleness
Protect collagen and elastin
Fight free radicals
Improve barrier function
For all skin types, including sensitive, rosacea and eczema skin.

Apply morning and night to face and neck after Ultra Revitalising Elixir, and before other hydrating serums such as Ideal Moisture Level Serum.
Bidens Pilosa Extract - contains phytanic acid that can activate retinoid receptors to produce a retinol-like result, including stimulating collagen and elastin synthesis, diminishing the depth of wrinkles and fine lines, and improving skin firmness and suppleness. It can also fight free radicals, soothe inflammations, control oiliness, and reduce hyperpigmentation.
Pepha®-Tight - a highly purified biotechnologically produced extract from the microalgae Nannochloropsis oculata combined with a well balanced fraction of polysaccharides. In the short term, it functions as a skin tightener to provide immediate tightening effect to the skin, whilst in the long term, it has been shown to increase the formation of type I collagen, and protect human fibroblasts from oxidative stress, thereby promoting a long term tightening effect through the strengthening of the skin's connective tissue.
Skinarch™ - or Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-72 Amide, is considered a “skin architect” as it promotes the formation of of new and well-organised collagen I and III fibres, together with collagen VI, for a proper biotensegrity (the connection, networking and anchoring of collagen fibres) which counteracts collagen fibril degeneration as we age, thereby reducing wrinkles and fine lines, and firming skin. Clinical studies have shown that the peptide was able to improve collagen quality, density, amount, thickness and quantity and organisation of fibres, thus rejuvenating the skin’s architecture by 10 years.
Collagen Amino Acids - derived from plants, these collagen amino acids are restructured to be identical to human type I collagen, an essential part of the skin's connective tissue and acts as a protective shield against oxidative stress, so as to strengthen the dermis and epidermis and keep the skin healthy.
Bacillus Ferment - a bioactive ingredient that promotes the synthesis of skin proteins to improve skin firmness, resilience and radiance.
Jojoba Oil - skin compatible with strong anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties. Also rich in natural ceramides to help promote wound healing and improve barrier function, and prevent and decrease epidermal loss of water.
Cottonseed Oil - derived from the cotton plant and rich in Vitamin E, linoleic acid, palmitic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphor and iron, and antioxidants etc., it protects, nourishes, supports the skin barrier, fights free radicals, soothes inflammations, and promotes skin healing.
