The Magical Benefits of Plant Placenta

 Aloe Vera Plant

Whenever we talk about Placenta in skincare, a lot of our noses instantly go up. We associate Placenta as part of the womb in mammals, and it becomes a bit taboo in terms of putting it on our faces. Here at Merino, we have harnessed all the divine nourishment stored in the Placenta from plant placenta, which has been shown to have over 70% more nutrients than that of mammal placenta and doesn’t harm any animals.


What Is Plant Placenta?

The plant placenta, also known as the botanical Placenta, is the Placenta obtained from the heart of the plant. Unlike mammals’ plants don’t give birth. Still, they produce seeds, and their Placenta serves a similar purpose and is also dense in nutrients.

The Placenta Is located under the pistil in the plant. This is where the plant gets ultimate nourishment, substance for growth, and where the seeds develop. The plant placenta is a natural element that nourishes, protects, and breathes life into each plant.


How does it work within our skincare? 

Plant Placenta is loaded with amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and protein. When incorporated into skincare, the Plant placenta works in several ways that deal with cell regeneration. This cellular regeneration process triggers our natural metabolic process that, in turn, aids in restoring youthful-looking skin.

Our skin cells recognise the plant placenta allowing it the unique ability to penetrate deeply into the skin’s hypodermis, where damage begins. Cellular activity is stimulated in the presence of the plant placenta. When cells are active, they consume more oxygen leading to a positive chain of events. Working to help repair the damage, prevent wrinkles, reverse signs of ageing, improve moisture retention, even skin tone, and promote a healthy glow.

In clinical testing plant placenta versus human Placenta, plant placenta demonstrates a 70% increase in skin oxygenation. When the skin consumes more oxygen, it creates healthy proteins that strengthen and protect the vital collagen structure that keeps the skin acting and looking youthful. This stimulates circulation, meaning skin cells regenerate more quickly to firm skin tone and repair visible lines and wrinkles. Even damage from UV rays and environmental pollution diminish, fading discolourations to make skin look brighter and clearer. What more could you want?


Let’s break down each nutrient.

There are all different nutrients that are in the plant placenta. Let’s break down each one so the benefits are clear, and we can understand just why we sell Plant Placenta here at Merino.



Antioxidants are substances that help protect the skin’s surface from oxidative damage caused by free radicals and environmental aggressors like UV and pollution. Antioxidants are often found in skincare product formulas because of their powerful anti-ageing benefits. A huge reason why we put them into our products. Who doesn’t love the power of anti-ageing benefits?


Amino Acids

Amino Acids are the building blocks of both peptides and proteins, and each has a specific role in skincare. Amino Acids maintain skin’s hydration, texture, resilience, and an overall supple, healthy appearance. It’s not a stretch to say that amino acids are indispensable for our skin and elsewhere in our bodies.


Vitamin C

It is an antioxidant that supports healthy collagen production. This nutrient helps with skin firmness, hydrating, and rejuvenating look.


Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant with anti-ageing properties helping to reduce sun damage to the skin. Vitamin E is a superior skin moisturiser, which helps reduce skin inflammation and increase tone, firmness, texture, and circulation.


Vitamin B5

It is an excellent moisturiser for the skin. Many studies have shown that vitamin B5 enhances the healing process of skin wounds.



It is essential for generating healthy skin and nails, helping to maintain skin’s elasticity and firmness.


Plant Placenta is a fantastic skincare product that changes the skincare game. Here at Merino, we have fine-tuned our placenta range to offer a high quality of nutrients in each product, and as you can see, these nutrients pack their punch.
