Boots is a British-based company which sells women's cosmetics and skincare products. One of its product lines geared towards skincare is the No7 Serum, available as the Protect and Perfect Advanced Serum and the Protect and Perfect Intense Serum. Both contain many of the same ingredients, especially key ingredients that are behind their skin rejuvenating claims, according to Paula's Choice.

Some of the essential ingredients used in No7 Serum include vitamin A, vitamin C, glycerin, dimethicone, peptides, alfalfa, larch, ginseng and mulberry extracts, according to Consumer Health Digest. The vitamin A is available in the form of retinyl palmitate, which is a stabilized Retinol, and the vitamin C is available as sodium ascorbyl phosphate. The peptides are available in a formula called "Matrixyl 3000 Plus," which is a combination of palmitoyl oligopeptide and palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7. The peptides are claimed to help thicken skin and reduce wrinkles.

The combination of plant extracts found in No7 Serum help to tighten the skin, provide antioxidants and may help increase elastin and collagen production, notes Consumer Health Digest.
