Inspired by nature, carefully selected by expert hands, and formulated by the best in the research industry. The Plant Base gifts us the vitality and the healing power of nature in a bottle.
Background of The Plant Base
The South Korean company started in 2005 with a line of 100% pure plant extracts handmade soap. In an age where skin products formulated with laboratory-synthesized ingredients has become the norm, it was a breathe of fresh air to be introduced to skincare that the whole family can use. Soon the company became one of the early innovators of plant-based K-beauty in South Korea with their high performing products formulated with certified-organic ingredients. 15 years later, the company now has 8 lines and 45 products ranging from their much loved baby care products to their award-winning Time Stop Collagen Ampoule.
The Plant Base Punch Above Their Weight
A number of K-beauty brands have gone the “green” route but what makes them stand out above the rest winning beauty awards from as far as the US and having highly anticipated launches in 10 countries? It boils down to the extraction method that they have been employing. While other brands use purified water as a filler, The Plant Base uses a continuous circulating extract system to remove the unnecessary plant components and to draw only the essential bio-active ingredients.
Stopping Time, The N.M.F. Line
The Plant Base’s N.M.F. range has graced the “best in beauty” section of magazines and have been highly mentioned in blogs. Packed in a sleek bottle that ensures the product’s freshness and ease of use to the consistency and the versatility of the product; everything is well-thought of every step of the way.
Youthful Skin, Achieved Naturally
The award-winning Time Stop Collagen Ampoule is formulated with 76.53% Lion’s Mane Mushroom or Hericium Erinaceus, which contains polysaccharides known to increase skin’s collagen level. Coupled with nature’s wonderful bio-actives from snow mushroom and schizophyllan fungus, to boost the skin’s natural moisturizing factor, to prevent acne, and to protect it from free-radicals, this ampoule does not only stop time but also turns back the clock.
A Beauty Folklore, Taking Roots in Science
Another show stopper from their N.M.F. line is the Quesera Ceramide, which is a blend of 74.19% rice ceramide with a mixture of their patended skin soother and anti-oxidant Inflax, and adenosine and niacinamide. This ampoule is specially formulated for hyper-pigmentation, dark spots and uneven skin tone. The use of rice water as a treatment to skin issues such as inflammation dates back to the ancient times. As our knowledge and testing abilities have progressed, our love for plant extracts and natural ingredients have deepened. Scientific researches have shown that rice water, in addition to containing ceramides, has been found to contain tyrosinase inhibitory peptides, which inhibits melanogenesis. A safe and natural way to a flawless skin.
The Miracle of a Drop
Hyaluronic acid is probably one of the most well-known and sought after ingredient in skincare. Rightly so, because a single gram of this hero ingredient can hold as much as 6 liters of water. Formulated in a skincare product, it has an amazing ability to bind water to the skin to retain its moisture level. So not only does hyaluronic acid make our skin appear smoother and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but it has also been shown to soothe irritation and plays a key role in wound healing with its tissue regeneration and anti-bacterial properties.
The Plant Base’s Waterfall Moist Balance Hyaluronic Acid 100 contains only 1 ingredient, hyaluronic acid. And that’s the beauty of it. It makes this ampoule the most versatile among their N.M.F. range. It has a light viscous texture that leaves the skin feeling comfortably softer and visibly smoother. It can be used on its own layered among serums and toners or added to liquid foundation or even sunscreens. It acts like a natural filler without dramatically changing the texture of that product but rather enhancing its consistency. A little drop definitely makes a big difference.
This time consuming and labor intensive process ensures that with each drop of The Plant Base product, our skin experiences only the pure bounty of nature. No toxic chemicals, no artificial fragrance and colours, no additives, no animal testing and no empty promises.
