Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink has been developed by the experts from Vitabiotics, the UK's No.1 vitamin company. Perfectil is the UK's leading beauty supplement for skin, hair and nails. Our in-depth understanding of skin nutrition has enabled us to develop Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink, taking the "science of beauty" to the next level.
This great tasting liquid beauty supplement is formulated to help support a radiant skin complexion, providing a premium blend of 7000mg scientifically researched Peptan® Marine Collagen peptides, vitamins and minerals, Hyaluronic Acid and Co-Q10.
The importance of collagen for skin
The dermal layer of our skin contains an elastic matrix made of collagen. Collagen is a protein produced primarily by cells known as fibroblasts and forms part of the body's structural connective tissue, an elastic matrix that holds together the body's various components and tissues.
The more collagen you have in your skin, the more youthful, elastic and supple it appears. As we age, production of collagen decreases and the breakdown of collagen increases, meaning that after the age of 20, we lose approximately 1% of our skin's collagen every year. This means that by later life, as much as up to half of our skin's collagen can be lost. Over the years, this results in the common signs of skin ageing: fine lines, wrinkles and creases, as well as sagging and a loss of hydration. This process can be accelerated by other factors including external stressors such as pollution, which unfortunately are increasingly common in modern life.
Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink is formulated with 7000mg Peptan® Marine Collagen peptides. Peptan® is a world leading source of collagen peptides and is known globally as a highly effective and preferred bioactive ingredient. Numerous scientific studies have been conducted on Peptan®.
Peptan's amino acid composition is high in hydroxyproline and glycine.
In order to ensure maximum bioavailability, the Peptan® Marine Collagen peptides used in Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink are low molecular weight when compared to certain collagen formulas available in the market. The phrase 'low molecular weight' means that each PEPTIDE is smaller and more easily absorbed by the body.
More than just collagen
Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink provides biotin and zinc, which help to maintain normal skin health, as well as Acerola cherry powder, which is a source of vitamin C that contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin. The advanced formula also contains selenium which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress, plus zinc and vitamin D which have a role in the process of cell division.
The premium formula is also enriched with key supporting nutrients including Hyaluronic Acid, L-Carnitine, Co-Q10 and Blackcurrant Seed oil.
Support for hair & nails
Like all other products in the Perfectil range, the Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink also includes specially selected nutrients to help maintain normal health of hair & nails for all round 'triple active' support. The formula contains biotin which contributes to the maintenance of normal hair, plus selenium and zinc which contribute to the maintenance of normal nail health.
Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink has been formulated to be part of your daily beauty routine to help keep skin radiant.

Why has Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink been developed?
Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink has been developed to support skin radiance from within.
It provides 7000mg Peptan Marine Collagen, which has been shown in independent beauty research to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The drink also provides vitamin C to help maintain normal collagen formation for the normal function of skin.
Who should use Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink?
Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink is recommended for those seeking extra nutritional support for skin. Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink may be used on its own or alongside other Perfectil tablets/capsules, and can be used for as long as required.
Can Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink be used during pregnancy and breast-feeding?
During pregnancy, we would only recommend a multivitamin supplement specially formulated for pregnancy, such as Pregnacare Original, Pregnacare Plus or Pregnacare Max, all of which contain a careful combination of vitamins and minerals, specially developed by the Vitabiotics team for use during pregnancy. Post natally we recommend Pregnacare Breast-feeding whilst breast-feeding, or Pregnacare New Mum.
How are the Perfectil Platinum Collagen drinks packaged?
The Perfectil Platinum Collagen drinks come in a box of ten 50ml bottles, which is a 10-day supply of 'one shot' individual drinks. Each bottle contains a perfectly measured 50ml daily dose for your convenience. The distinctive silver bottles are BPA free. The bottles can be chilled in the fridge for an even more refreshing drink.
How and when should Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink be used?
One 50ml bottle of Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink should be taken per day, after a main meal which maximises the absorption of nutrients. It may be used on its own or in addition to Perfectil tablets/capsules.
Are there any undesired effects whilst taking Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink?
Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink has no known side effects when taken as directed. Do not exceed the recommended intake. In case of overdose, seek medical advice immediately.
Is Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink suitable for vegetarians?
No, Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink is not suitable for vegetarians as the Peptan Marine Collagen peptides are sourced from fish. If you are seeking a vegetarian product in the Perfectil range, try Perfectil Original, Perfectil Plus Nails or Perfectil Plus Protan.
Is Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink suitable for those following a Halal or Kosher diet?
The only non-vegetarian ingredient in Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink are the Peptan Marine Collagen peptides. These are sourced from Tilapia fish and are suitable for both Halal and Kosher diets.
How long does it take to experience any benefits in the condition of skin, hair and nails?
Results vary amongst individuals, but in most cases we would expect the beneficial effects of the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink to build over several weeks, with noticeable results in one to three months. A regular intake is recommended. There is no maximum length of time over which Perfectil Platinum Collagen Skin drink may be used.
Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.
All Vitabiotics products have been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.

I’m at the end of my first pack and I can feel a huge difference. my hair feels like it has thickened and I haven't had any breakage while washing my hair which was happening alot before hand. I’m never one to write reviews but felt this one was worth it. I'm very happy that I came across this product and will be continuing to use it!"
"This product is really good for me. Thank you very much Perfectil."
"My friends have noticed the change to my hair condition since it was damaged by a bad hairdresser who completely burned it doing highlights. It took me three years to recover it and it would never be possible without Perfectil."
"I went to my hairdresser a couple of weeks ago and when he was done he was filled with self praise. He thought that he had the magic touch because he had never done my hair so well before. I didn't have the heart to tell him that it was the effect of using Perfectil. My hair is so shiny and it's getting so thick already. Skin is still glowing and my nails have been growing like weeds. All this after being on these products for only 8 weeks. I will always be a customer."
Love u Perfectil. Thanks a lot Vitabiotics.
"I have been using Perfectil Original for the last few months and I felt compelled to email you to congratulate you on such a wonderful product. In the past I have used a number of well known products, (which also were far more expensive than your product) and they have NOT worked for me. I am so glad that your product does work for me. Thank you again"
"I am writing to tell you how much I adore your "Perfectil" range of products. My nails have gone from stumpy and frail, to long and strong!!! I haven't seen a difference in hair length, however it has become thicker and more shiny. ...have improved my skin so much!!! All I can say is "well done"!! As a feel good enthusiast, I have recommend all your products to my friends and family. Thank you."
"I've been using Perfectil since last summer and I have to say I am obsessed with it! I got the one that helps that little big extra with hair growth and it made a huge difference! I used to have such thin hair and it wouldn't grow for me until u started using Perfectil! I have told all my friends about it because they noticed such a huge difference!"
"I started shedding my hair very badly. After taking this hair fall is under control. My skin is glowing and my nails are very pretty. I have got the stock for another 4 months. Thanks Perfectil.. Beauty of Secret."
"A shop assistant in Boots Chemists told me about Perfectil about 10 years ago after I admired her hair. I started taking Perfectil and my hair was the healthiest it's ever been and people often commented on how shiny it was! I say was, because I decided to go back to being a blond a few months ago, and as was expected, my hair is now weakened and damaged because of the bleaching process. I am going to start taking Perfectil again to hopefully get my hair back into a healthy, shiny state and, hopefully, grow it back to its former length. Thank you so much for your wonderful product Perfectil. I have extolled its virtues to everyone who has ever stopped me in the street, supermarket, etc. admiring my shiny locks."
"I just wanted to take the time to send you some feedback on one of your products that I have been using (skin, hair, nails). I have been using this product for 2 months and I can already see a difference in my skin. My skin looks revitalised, I have even received compliments from friends. Your product has literally given me a new found confidence in my appearance, thank you"
"I have only been taking this product for three weeks now but I have already begun to see a marked improvement in my nails, hair, and skin. I will continue to use this product. Thanks Perfectil !"
"These tablets are miracle.. i only used them for 10 days i can see the difference already. thanks for Perfectil."
"I am very impressed with this product. I am 56 years old and have never been able to grow my nails. I have been taking Perfectil for 2 months and now my nails are strong and lovely. As a bonus my hair and skin are in the best condition they have ever been. I will keep on using this product in the future. Thank you"
"Hi, I just wanted to say how happy I am with Perfectil. I started taking them almost 2 years ago when I suffered from hair loss. I had tried everything else without success, but within 3 months of taking Perfectil triple active my hair was growing back. It is now back to normal but I don’t think I’ll ever stop taking them, my general health has improved and I’m pretty sure its down to Perfectil. thank you so much for this wonderful product. I work in the beauty industry and I often meet ladies who are going through problems with hair loss and I tell them all to use this product. It genuinely works. Thank you."
"After taking Perfectil Platinum for 2 weeks I can honestly say my skin is positively looking 100% improved and looks so smooth and amazing. It is great to wake up every day and see my skin is even more glowing and fresh."
"For more than 3 years, I have been purchasing Vitabiotics healthcare supplements for myself and my family. Two months ago, I tried Perfectil Platinum. Results are amazing. Perfectil Platinum has helped me maintain skin radiance and elasticity despite huge lose of weight! Thank you, Vitabiotics!"
"Perfectil is an amazing product which I have been using for more than 10 years and I can truly say that this is a miracle in a box! It does exactly what it says on the box and the results are that it’s taken years off my real age."
"I've been using Perfectil for just two weeks and my skin is almost perfect. Thank you for this product!"

"I have been using Perfectil for 30 days. I can't believe how clear and healthy looking my skin is. What a difference i am recommending this product to all my friends!"
"I have only been using Perfectil for one and a half months!! What a difference to my hair, skin & nails in such a short time. Just a brilliant product. Pity I didn't start using it earlier. A must!!"
"I have been taking Perfectil for 11 months now and the change in my skin is amazing. Since 15 (now 34!) I had tried everything. I saw these and got some and have never looked back. My nails are also growing, without breaking, for the first time ever and my hair is better too. I would recommend these to anybody. I have skin confidence for the first time in a long time :-) I have now started taking Perfectil Plus, as I'm getting older, due to the content of EFA's and Omega oils, something which my diet lacks. So hopefully I'll look even better!!! Thank God for these vitamins!"
"I have been using Perfectil for the last 3 years and the results are amazing. Since using Perfectil, my skin is completely clear. I do not even need to use foundation or powder."
"I am writing to say thanks. My skin has always been nice and shiny but my hair has been a real disaster after having my first child. I have been using Perfectil for 4 months and it had an amazing effect on my hairs and nails. I am very happy that I have chosen to be a Perfectil customer."
"I have been using Perfectil for 2 months now and have seen a very big difference in my skin and especially my hair. Since using Perfectil, my complexion has become flawless. My hair was also very brittle, it is now so thick and grows so fast, even my hairdresser has commented on how strong my hair has become."
"Hello, I just had to write this email to tell you how wonderful Perfectil is. I have to take very strong medication and for a long time I was losing a lot of my hair, I tried everything from pills to specialist shampoo, spent a small fortune and had no results. Then spotted your product and tried it for a few months and my hair is fuller and healthier than before. I just wanted to say this product is a miracle for me and I will always continue to take it."
"I have been using Perfectil for the last 2 months. I am impressed that my nails and skin are much better. I am also going to the gym 3 times a week but I have never seen such a radiant glow on my skin. My hair is very brittle and dry but it is getting better. I hope it will help my hair as well. I will be taking these tablets for a very long time."
"Just like to say a big thank you to Perfectil. I have suffered from hair loss at the age of 24 so i started to use Perfectil. My hair looks more healthy and has a healthy shine. Many thanks again."
"First time I have purchased Perfectil but I am most impressed with the outcome. After 1 week I can see a marked difference in my nails. Thank you."
"I wrote to you before about your wonderful hair and nail vitamins. Well I have taken them for about 6 months and my nails are wonderful, almost can’t keep up with them they were so weak before. My nails have never been so good, they are long and hard and need constant filing!"
"I am writing to tell you how wonderful your Perfectil hair & nail tablets have been for me. My hair has completely changed and is now much thicker and I am now taking them everyday and so very pleased- thank you so much."
"I first started taking Perfectil about a year and a half ago and couldn't believe the results. The appearance of my skin, hair and nails improved within a few weeks. Thanks"
"I am going through the menopause at the age of 45 and have been for the last 2/3 years. It was suggested to me that I should start to take Perfectil for skin hair and nails. I am on my 2nd pack of 30 tablets and I have noticed an improvement in the thickness of my hair."
"I felt I must write to tell you how brilliant your product Perfectil is. I have been taking Perfectil for about four months now and have seen so much difference in my hair and nails. My nails were very brittle and would not grow. Also my hair was quite fine. Since taking the tablets I have seen a big difference. My hair seems to have become thicker, growing lovely and my nails, although not quite talons, are growing beautifully."
"Perfectil has really worked well for me. My hair was brittle and always breaking because in the winter, I normally keep it in plates and this can take its toll on my hair. But since I started taking Perfectil, my hair has improved dramatically and is stronger and has a healthy shine. It has also helped my nails to grow and my skin has a wonderful glow which my friends and partner have all commented on. I'd recommend it to anyone!!!!!"
"I have been using Perfectil for 1 month and I am so happy that it really helped the quality of my hair. I was having problem of hairloss. My hair looks healthy.Thank you very much PERFECTIL.
"During the past couple of years, my skin has not been what it used to be. I decided to try Perfectil a week ago, and the differences made to my skin were almost instant. I feel much happier now. My hair is also in a lot better condition, so thanks!"
"I tried many products but no luck. Some Skin Specialist advised to take PERFECTIL. A lot of Thanks to PERFECTIL.
"Bought this product after having a nasty experience with a dodgy nail bar which ruined my nails, after using them for 4 weeks I can already notice the difference, my nails are growing and are getting back their strength, not to mention my hair feels thicker and is always shiny and my skin hasn't had the usual monthly break out when my period is due - its magic - thanks Perfectil"
"I have a history of very sensitive skin. I took Perfectil some time ago and felt that my skin was very healthy at that point although I could not believe that Perfectil was the main reason...I then stopped and restarted 3 weeks ago, and I can honestly say the results are amazing .."
"I recently started taking Perfectil. It has really done a great job. My skin & nails look much better. Keep up your good job.
"I have been taking Perfectil for around 6 months now. A while back I saw a magazine advertising Perfectil and it said all the supermodels were taking, so I though its got to be half decent. I never noticed much improvement for about a month apart from my nails were slight stronger, but as all beauty treatments, I thought you should use them for 3 months to notice the difference.
After 3 months there were improvements in my nails and skin, my hair was stronger too. Imagine all the improvements now I've been taking them for six months. For years I have been looking for creams, serums, strengtheners etc. to make me look better. We all take them, lets face it, we spend huge amounts of money on them, but Perfectil isn't a fancy cream and that is way better. I didn't think the tablets would help improve the way you look until I heard of Perfectil. Listen to one thing I've got to say, save your money and treat your self, don't get all these fancy things, just buy a box of Perfectil. It is an excellent product. Oh and one last thing, no it's not like taking medication."
"I have an extremely busy lifestyle, I hardly have time to cleanse, tone and moisturise most of the time, never have a manicure to make my nails stronger as they are weak and don't use leave in conditioners. I was talking to a mate of mine a while back who has the same problem but she always looks well pampered and she was talking about Perfectil. That evening I went out and bought some, thinking I might give it a try but it might not work. I have been using Perfectils for around 3 and a half months now and the results are amazing. Everyone always asks me where I buy my face cream and nail strengthener from. Its not like taking medication or anything and I recommend it to everyone. They are really cheap compared to all these fancy products, plus you need to buy different types for all that Perfectil does. If you have the same problem as me buy some and if you haven't still buy some. You will be screaming with joy at the difference...
"Dear Spirit, (Superdrug magazine)
At long last I have the lovely-looking, just manicured nails that I’ve always dreamed of. Thanks to your article and promotion in the Nov/December issue. I think it was in ‘Spirit loves’.
I’ve always had horrible short nails, as I just couldn’t stop biting them, and they would never grow. Even my skin and complexion is bright and clear. Also, I don’t have to worry about taking specific vitamins and minerals, this wonder product helps maintain healthy skin, hair and nails plus it has all the vitamins you can think of. You mentioned that if you start now, by the summer you will have something to smile about but I have the proof already after 3 ½ months. So I’d like to say THANKS FOR RECOMMENDING PERFECTIL!!! I don’t know what I’d do without it!
Ms S M,
PS- keep up the good work.
"Perfectil is Great..."
"I was very keen on trying out various health supplements but never seemed to
notice any benefit, so I stopped taking them. I was a little dubious about trying yet 'another' product but as I felt low and was looking old for my age, I eventually decided to try your Menopace and Perfectil tablets. I am so glad I did, because after only 3 weeks I started to feel so much happier and more energetic. After 10 weeks everyone says I look ten years younger! Can this really be due to your tablets? I will only know the answer
if I stop taking them but I am not taking the chance! There is only one person who thinks more highly of your products than I do and that is my husband!
I am really pleased with the product Perfectil."
"“I am now 65 and my skin is very good; I have a good head of hair, and I am always being complimented on my nails which are long, strong and look terrific. Needless to say this is due to taking Perfectil, so I recommend everyone to take them. I am.”
"I am 16 and have recently started taking one of your range of vitamin products, PERFECTIL, and I just wanted to say how good they are! In the short time I have been taking them, I have noticed a dramatic improvement in the state of my nails, and my skin and hair also seem healthier. I have had great trouble in the past with weak hair and nails, and poor skin condition, so I wanted to thank you very much for how much your product has helped me. I am very grateful to you for making this possible, and I would recommend this product to anyone.
Thank you again.
About two years ago, my nails started to split, tear and were really unsightly. I tried many different very expensive creams to no avail, then about a year ago I found Perfectil in Superdrug.
After taking Perfectil for only 6 weeks, my nails started to grow much stronger, and stopped splitting and breaking.
Needless to say, I am thrilled to bits with the result, and I don’t think a day goes by without someone commenting on my nails, and asking how I managed to get them to grow as long, and strong as they are.
I am sure your sales of Perfectil must have increased in the last 6 months or so, as I have recommended it to so many people - Sales assistants, friends and family.
By the way, my hair and skin isn’t too bad either - considering I am over 60!!
I have been meaning to write to you for a couple of months but can put it off no longer as I really feel I have to congratulate you on your wonderful product PERFECTIL.
I started taking these tablets about six months ago and now wouldn’t do without them. I am 56 yrs old. I decided to try Perfectil and I have to say, skin is pink and soft again, longest nails I’ve ever had and my hair is thick like it used to be. I can only put this down to these ‘great little pills’. Please,please don’t stop making them and take them off the market. This is the first letter I’ve ever written to a company about this product so you can see that’s a fair reflection on how I feel. Great!
