Cosmeceutical Skin Care
One of the most effective skin care ranges in the world.
SkinTuition stocks Agera® in-clinic.
Agera® is derived from the ancient Greek word ageratos meaning “not to age”. Agera® is a comprehensive range of active skin care products and includes anti-ageing, anti-pigmentary and acne treatments that work together to produce visible results. Agera® has been produced after ten years of research by a team of chemists, biomedical scientists and physicians ensuring thorough testing and scientific validation, and is free from animal testing.
Powerful Antioxidants protect against free radical damage, while Retinols of varying strengths smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. Growth Factor Peptides, available exclusively in Agera® , help to control the skin’s internal ageing process while restoring and maintaining its thickness and resilience. Agera® skin care is formulated using tiny particles in Bioemulsions that encapsulate these powerful anti-ageing ingredients and ensure their penetration into the deepest layers of the skin, giving rapid results with minimal irritation.

Founder Dr. Don Owen
Dr. Don Owen is one of the world’s foremost researchers in the field of biopeptides. His pioneering work originated in development of first artificial blood for use during organ transplant. He has been involved in academic and corporate research for over 30 years. This led to interest in dermal ageing and after 10 years of research, resulted in Agera® Rx skincare.
Agera® products are man-made in a laboratory. They are tested on human cells to prove their efficacy. Various Peptides and Retinols along with other ingredients are carefully measured and tested. Their philosophy is to enhance proliferation and minimise inflammation.
Agera® uses Bioemulsion Technology which are tiny minute particles which can travel deep into the skin. The diagram shows a Macroemulsion particle (usually found in high street moisturisers). A Liposome which was also created by Dr Don Owen, found in top-end (not in the high street) moisturisers and a Nanosome, which is the smallest particle. These particles are able to penetrate the skin deeper than any other. This allows Agera ingredients to be taken
