Advanced Serum

7 years on we’ve
made our best even better

What is it?

The original well-loved, top-selling anti-ageing serum, now with an enhanced formula, which is clinically proven to give even better anti-ageing results than before.

Who is it for?

No7 Protect & Perfect ADVANCED Serum is for anyone who wants to tackle the first signs of ageing in the skin – for fine lines that usually start to appear between the ages of 25 - 35.

The key ingredients

The scientists at No7 have built on the original clinically proven formulation with new perfecting and protecting ingredients that help the new ADVANCED serums work even more effectively than before.


“The identification of effective anti-ageing solutions
has to come from an in-depth understanding
of the biology of the skin ageing process.”

Dr Mike Bell,
Boots Skincare Scientific Advisor



Matrixyl 3000. This is a peptide blend which has a powerful effect on repairing damage in aged skin, restoring key proteins such as fibrillin which are broken down in ageing. (Fibrillin is an important component of skin elasticity).

Matrixyl 3000 is a blend of an oliogopeptide and tetrapeptide and was a key ingredient of the original No7 Protect & Perfect Serum. Through research with The University of Manchester, the experts at No7 discovered that Matrixyl 3000 was key to delivering these proven benefits. Its concentration has been increased in the new formulation.

Acetyl-di-peptide. Through extensive testing to screen new ingredients for their anti-ageing power the scientists at No7 identified a new highly concentrated peptide which complements Matrixyl 3000 to make the serum even more powerful. This combination of Matrixyl 3000 and acetyl-di-peptide is trademarked by Sederma as Matrixyl 3000 Plus.

Clearer and smoother skin

Salicylic acid. This is a new inclusion in the formula to help deliver clearer and blemish free skin to younger women. Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid which improves the complexion by encouraging the shedding of old skin cells, to reveal fresher skin and enable better penetration of the formula. Because of its ability to clear clogged pores and neutralise the bacteria in them, it is also beneficial for anyone with blemish-prone skin.

Increased Protection

Antioxidant complex. In skincare, as well as in our diet, antioxidants are vital to help neutralise unstable free radical molecules generated by environmental aggression such as UV rays, pollution and stress. The patented antioxidant complex contains Vitamin C, extracts of mulberry and ginseng. In vitro models have shown that this complex protects skin proteins from UV damage.

Rice peptide and alfalfa complex. This protects the skin by inhibiting the action of Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) - enzymes which break down structural proteins such as collagen and fibrillin within the skin.
