Plant-based skin-firming serum that provides immediate & long-term effects / 1 oz
TWELVE Beauty Plant Perfection Gel Serum was designed as an alternative to retinol, addressing the loss of firmness and elasticity that many of us experience with age — particularly around the jaw, chin, and neck areas. (FYI, that’s called the “Y-zone,” recalling memories of teenage struggles with the “T-zone.” Nostalgia!)
As Plant Perfection’s creator, Dr. Pedro Catala, told us, “No one is spared from the loss of skin flexibility and firmness…and unfortunately, the use of mobile devices and less-than-optimal posture further aggravate the situation.”
We know: our posture needs work. But it’s true that no one is spared, which is one of the many reasons we love the inclusivity of this formula. Like all TWELVE’s products, it was created with sensitive skin in mind, and its plant-based ingredients are suitable for daytime or nighttime use on all skin types and conditions — even during pregnancy and nursing.
But don’t let that make you think Plant Perfection is a lightweight. The formula features Bidens Pilosa extract, which produces a retinol-like result — stimulating collagen, diminishing fine lines, and improving firmness — without related side effects. It’s supported by plant-based collagen amino acids, a tetrapeptide dubbed a “skin architect” for its ability to promote correctly structured collagen fibers, a micro-algae for both immediate and long-term firming effects, and skin-firming probiotics. (Pedro was serious with this one. Firmness for all! Results from day one! Yes, please.)
With a lightweight gel-lotion texture, Plant Perfection is a beautiful layer underneath your favorite moisturizer. Check out “how to use” to find out how to work it into your routine. And for more insider info on the formula, check out Dara's interview with Pedro on our blog.
How to Use
While TWELVE suggests using Plant Perfection AM and PM for optimum results, it can be used either after your regular TWELVE serum or in rotation. If using once daily, apply it in the morning to reap its benefits throughout the day: it’s not photosensitive. (It’s also safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.)
-Bacillus ferment helps promote the synthesis of skin proteins, improving its resistance and radiance for a firmer complexion over time.
- Palmitoyl tetrapeptide-72 amide is called a “skin architect” for its ability to promote correctly structured collagen fibers.
- Collagen amino acids are plant-based amino acids similar to human type I collagen, which strengthens the dermis and epidermis to keep skin healthier for a longer period of time. This collagen type is an essential part of our skin’s connective tissue and acts as a protective shield against oxidative stress.
- Nannochloropsis oculata extract is a highly efficient micro-algae that provides both instant and long-term skin firming effects.
