Phyto-A+ Australian Native Tobacco works like a retinoid* but is four times more effective than both retinoic acid and retinol at stimulating collagen. Phyto-A+ Australian Native Tobacco brings together a unique Australian Botanical with cutting edge biotechnology to create sophisticated skin care for healthy-looking, dewy skin.

Clinical trials of the active ingredient in Phyto-A+ Australian Native Tobacco show remarkable results. After 28 days, clinical measures show:

  • 42% improvement in wrinkle count
  • 31% improvement in wrinkle volume
  • 37% improvement in wrinkle depth
  • 47% improvement in skin radiance
  • 27% improvement in hydration

In relation to collagen stimulation, the active ingredient in Phyto-A+ Australian Native Tobacco is shown to be four times more effective than retinol. (Interestingly, Australian Native Tobacco is also widely used in the study of plant virology and has been the plant species of choice for some scientists in their quest to develop a vaccine for COVID-19.)

  • Reduces pore size and improves radiance

  • Reduces the count, volume and depth of wrinkles

  • Improves hydration



Founder's Formula was created by Dr. Annie Holden from newly researched Australian Botanicals to be the best possible in potent, natural, effective skin care. Annie is an Australian anthropologist and has spent many years in remote parts of Australia where she developed a driving passion for the unique and extraordinary flora of Australia.

Recent research by Australia's leading 5 Star Plant Sciences universities has demonstrated that many Australian Botanicals are especially high in potent phyto-nutrients with multiple benefits for skin health. Drawing on this research, Annie collaborated with a senior chemist to formulate oils and serums, originally for her own personal use, and then for family and friends. The Founder's Formula brand was established and the range has expanded and continues to grow. "In Australia there are 23,000 known species and less than 1,000 have been studied to date. And more new species are being Identified daily. The opportunity for new discoveries of ancient plants with exciting benefits for skin health and beauty are truly breathtaking." Dr Annie Holden, Sunshine Coast, Australia.
