ARCO Plant Placenta is made from a patented recombinant (bio-engineered) technology and contains no animal or human product. It offers the same effect of a stimulating action on increased cell renewal and is deemed as a scientific substitute for human or animal placenta extracts. It regenerates and invigorates the skin, stimulating cellular renewals, improves the oxygen supply in our cell and enhanced the protein synthesis in our skin to maintain its youthfulness.


The Discovery

The use of Animal Placenta extract for pharmaceutical and cosmetic preparation has been well documented and proven for decades. For years scientist in Switzerland, USA and Germany has researched for a plant substitute replacing animal placenta. In Mid 90’s, scientist discovered that cereal bran layers could deliver cell metabolism activating extracts which could substitute animal placenta ones and known as Plant Placenta Extracts.

Clinical studies and experiments were also carried out to substitute animal starting materials by Plant analogues ones, for instance ovine placenta by Plant placenta received from cereals like rye, wheat, Oats etc. It is proven that the plant placenta extracts are able like the animal ones to increase cell metabolic activity.

The Secret to Beautiful Skin

Arco Total Skin Rejuvenation (Plant Placenta) or Arco PP in short, is manufactured according to a proprietary process, using state of the art technology in a FDA (USA Food and Drug Administration) registered and cGMP USA laboratory. The process is performed at controlled temperature and humidity with sophisticated ultra-filtration units to allow for the selection of specific molecules and to ensure their potency. The manufacturing steps are performed in accordance with USA Pharmaceutical Standards, ensuring a high quality and bioactive product. It is also made from a patented recombinant (bio-engineered) technology and contains no animal or human product.

ARCO PP Total Skin Rejuvenation composition is packed with the highest bio activeness and also has the following key features,



  • Support Healthy Matrix Metalloproteinases Activity that enhances the metabolic activity of skin cells and proteins thus effectively ridding wrinkles, sagging and lighten scar. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of extracellular endopeptidases that degrade the extra-cellular matrix and other extra-cellular proteins despite their role in maintaining the integrity of the skin and other tissues, MMPs have also been shown to be involved in angiogenesis (Blood vessel formation, which usually accompanies the growth of malignant tissue). 

    With aging and in various conditions, the metabolic activity of cells such as fibroblasts may become disturbed. Such a disturbance may affect the equilibrium between production and breakdown of extra cellular matrice (Murphy and Reynolds, 1993). In these conditions, the balance between MMPs and inhibitor of MMPs is no longer respected, so that in most cases, the enzymatic activity of MMPs predominates. Aging and long term sunlight exposures are all factors associated with an increased enzymatic activity of MMPs (Fischer, 1997). This activity eventually leads to the degradation of the collagen fiber meshwork.
  • Whitening or toning effects on skin pigmentation, this is made possible due to the existence of Glutathione (GSH) found in Arco PP TSR.
  • Detoxify the Skin and Body, which are naturally occurring features of the GSH giving you a healthier, beautiful and firm body.

    GSH is the most powerful naturally occurring antioxidant in all human cells. It has multiple roles. GSH protects your Skin, vision, boosts your immune system, helps turn carbohydrates into energy, and prevents the buildup of oxidized fats. Many clinical studies have shown that GSH may address some of the major health issues of today: diabetes, heart disease, strokes, asthma, hepatitis and the diseases of aging such as Alzheimer’s and arthritis. 

    GSH, a small molecule found in almost every cell, is a compound classified as a tripeptide made of three amino acids: L-cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. Each and every cell in the body takes these raw ingredients to manufactures GSH. The GSH in each cell has numerous functions. The three most important jobs are anti-oxidation, immunity boosting and detoxification. GSH is also found in every part of the body, especially the lungs, intestinal tract, and liver. The body produces and stores the largest amounts of GSH in the liver, where it is used to detoxify harmful compounds so that they can be removed from the body through the bile. The liver also supplies GSH directly to red and white blood cells in the bloodstream; it helps keep red blood and white blood cells healthy to maximize the disease-fighting power of the immune system. GSH also appears to have an anti-aging affect on the body. GSH levels decline with age, and a lack of glutathione has been shown to leave the body more vulnerable to damage by free radicals, thus speeding up oxidation (wearing down) of the body.

The Difference in ARCO PP TSR (Total Skin Rejuvenation)

  • Manufactured in USA, in a FDA Certified Facility under strict USA Pharmaceutical Standards guidelines.
  • USP (U.S. PHARMACOPEIA, The standard of Quality) verifies the quality, purity, and potency of the extracted ingredients and passed USP's rigorous verification processes.
  • Uniquely formulated recombinant (bio-engineered) technology. Arco PP GSH is extracted using a patented Direct Fermentative Method.


Composition: Each box comprises 10 X 4ml Vials (Live Plant Extract)

Actions of plant placenta

Biochemical research has compared the composition of Plant Placenta to that of Human Placenta, showing that they have a bio-analogous composition. It has notably been observed that they are similar in terms of their amino acid content and distribution. The following table gives a few of the most important amino acids, expressed in residue per thousand.

  Plant Tissue Human Placenta
Proline - hydroxyproline couple + aspartic acid 812 237
Diamine acids 133 87
Sulphur amino acids > 10 14
Leucine/isoleucine couple 128 70


These amino acids and peptides act as veritable bio-stimulines with total respect for the skin's natural process of evolution. Cells are then stimulated in a perfectly natural way. We should notably stress the high content in the plant tissue of proline/hydroxyproline, an essential amino acid couple that plays a major role in the process of synthesizing collagen. These amino acids are associated with peptides, trace elements, nitrogen and phosphorous compounds and other components involved in cell metabolism. The result is that Plant Placenta provides cell regeneration results that are comparable or even better than those of Human Placenta. Studies have notably been carried out in the dermatology department of Croix Rousse Hospital in Lyon, showing clear improvement for dry and flaky skin (due to illness or aging). Moreover, in vivo tests have proven that there is an optimum tolerance to Plant Placenta. Lastly, it has been proven that Plant Placenta gives excellent results on the scalp, stimulating the hair follicles.
