Some anti-aging products work by applying ingredients topically, some work by injection, and some work by ingesting pills. Perfectil is in the latter category. Perfectil is manufactured by Vitabiotics, a British health care company that has been in existence for over 30 years. Perfectil is touted as a beauty supplement for skin, nails, and hair. It contains vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that are said to protect from sun damage and free radicals. It is meant to replace the daily multi-vitamin and is taken once daily.
Perfectil can be purchased directly from the Vitabiotics website or at various online retailers. The Perfectil website is informational and provides customer reviews and the results of a clinical study of 62 Perfectil users. We were disappointed to not be able to find any indication of a money-back guarantee. The best skin care companies stand behind their products with such a guarantee so that consumers can purchase with confidence.
According to online retailers’ websites, the ingredients in Perfectil are: Active Ingredients: vitamin D, vitamin E, vitamin C, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folacin, vitamin B12, biotin, pantothenic acid, iron, magnesium, zinc, iodine, copper, manganese, chromium, selenium, cystine, natural mixed carotenoids, grape seed extract
Other Ingredients: mycrocrystalline cellulose, dicalcium phosphate, hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, crosslinked sodium carboxymethylcellulose, stearic acid, hydroxypropyl cellulose, silicon dioxide, natural colorings, and magnesium stearate.
Most of these ingredients are found in a good multi-vitamin. The benefits of Vitamins D, E, and C are well-researched. Vitamin C is a powerful anti-oxidant and Vitamins D & E work together to enhance the skin’s cell production. However there is nothing found on the list of ingredients that indicates to us that Perfectil is anything more than another multi-vitamin.
- Contains ingredients that are known to have beneficial effects on the skin.
- Available for purchase directly from the manufacturer.
- Does not contain ingredients clinically-proven to reduce wrinkles.
- No money-back guarantee apparent.
- Not all consumers can tolerate iron well.
The Bottom Line
We believe that a good multi-vitamin should be a key part of any anti-aging skin care regimen. Vitamins and minerals help to keep the body’s natural defenses strong and encourage the body to regenerate cells. However, we feel that those looking for targeted anti-wrinkle results may be disappointed if taking Perfectil alone. We recommend that consumers take a daily multi-vitamin but also look for a topical skin care product that contains clinically-proven anti-wrinkle ingredients like Matrixyl 3000 or Argiriline. These ingredients penetrate the skin deeply to stimulate natural collagen and elastin production and smooth wrinkles. Keep in mind that if you purchase Perfectil and are unhappy with it, you may not be able to get your money back.
