TWELVE Beauty

Pedro Català — creator of Spain’s TWELVE Beauty — is one of the most thoroughly educated founder-formulators we know. He has not only a pharmacy degree, but also a master’s in Botany and a PhD in Natural Product Formulation, a subject he’s taught at the University of Siena. (Yes, he’s fluent in Italian, too.) As one beauty editor put it, "What Pedro doesn't know about natural product formulation isn't worth knowing,” and after Pedro flew in from Valencia for a day to give our team an in-depth training on his products, we could see why. We’re delighted to be TWELVE’s first US retailer, and we’re huge fans of this go-to brand for sensitive, delicate skin.

"The BioRecept Total Lift Eclat serum works wonders on me. I may have described the effect to someone as 'It's like magical unicorns were nuzzling pixie dust into my face overnight.'"

Rae

"I've been using it for a month as a moisturizer/serum in one and it's fantastic. My skin is smooth, soft, and bright — no dryness at all. I'm loving it!"

Nora

"I hadn't gotten a good night's sleep in over two weeks and was at my wits' end. I kept waking up after 4-5 hours and unable to get back to sleep. Last night I took the sleep tonic and stress tonic with water before bed. I slept deeply and awoke feeling refreshed and full of energy!"

Andrew

"The difference in my skin from April 2018 to now must be seen to be believed. Having never used oil on my face I wasn't sure what to expect with Dara's Oil, but I wouldn't return to a cream moisturizer for anything. This oil is light, penetrating, and not greasy."

Jill

“I'm beyond hooked on Boucleme! It's far superior to anything I've used before. I went out with friends the first night after using it and they asked what I had done differently with my hair! Said it looked amazing.”

Katie

"I have tried so many concealers (I'm 62), and this one is amazing. It doesn't sit in fine lines like most do, even my previous $300 concealer. I have real dark circles under my eyes, and now they are not noticeable. My eyes are less puffy, too!"
