Brands To Bring In The New Year: Vertere

Give Back Green Beauty Press Skincare Travel


Vertere was developed from the desire of creator, Bethany Hilt, to eliminate the need to layer multiple products to provide the cocktail of ingredients needed to achieve clear, even, unlined skin.

Fueled by a lifelong passion for skin care that began with crafting facial masks at the age of six, Ms. Hilt’s consumption of clinical trial data provided the foundation for her to create her skin care products.  She soon discovered others shared her frustration in finding non-comedogenic products that noticeably improved the appearance of  hyperpigmentation and aging, and Vertere was born.

Vertere is the first and only line of skin care specifically created to simultaneously improve the appearance of aging, hyperpigmentation and adult acne with one regimen. It is created to be used by women and men of any age, and a broad range of skin types. Vertere utilizes the most advanced scientific and natural/organic ingredients available at clinically proven ingredients available at clinically proven levels to produce a deliberate, highly effective line of luxury skin care.


• Is paraben-free, petrolatum-free and mineral oil-free

• Contains no animal-derived ingredients

• Minimizes use of non-renewable resources

• Utilizes an amino-acid based non-bioaccumulative preservative system

Vertere products are not tested on animals.

And who doesn’t wanna look like Vertere’s founder Bethany?  I mean really!


Damn girl.

I’m sold.

Vertere Dramatic Transformation Cream SPF 15:


Patented Vertere Dramatic Transformation Cream SPF 15 simultaneously targets aging, hyperpigmentation and adult acne with more than 60 percent clinically active ingredients including organic lactic acid, Alpha Arbutin, multiple peptides, vitamins and botanicals. Providing UVA/UVB protection and inhibition of tyrosinase synthesis helps reduce hyperpigmentation reoccurrence. Luxuriously textured yet non-comedogenic, the cream absorbs instantly and may be used by the most sensitive skin, all ages and skin types, ranging from slightly dry to extremely oily.

*Consumer test panel participants reported tightened pores and glowing skin in three days; diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in two weeks;  hyperpigmentation appearing lightened in one month; clearer skin; greater moisturization and overall younger- and firmer-looking skin with daily use.

Key Clinical Active Highlights:

• Organic lactic acid provides a high skin cell renewal rate with a very low irritation level

• Salicylic acid combines with organic lactic acid to synergistically amplify clarity

• Alpha-Arbutin produces faster and more pronounced lightening after 30 days compared to kojic acid and hydroquinone

• Dipeptide Diaminobutyroyl Benzylamide Diacetate inhibits muscle contractions for a smoothing, anti-wrinkle effect; studies have shown 52 percent wrinkle reduction after 28 days

• Omegas 3, 6 and 9 help rebuild skin’s barrier and retain moisture

• Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, an organic peptide, has been shown to help protect against collagen degradation and reduce skin roughness

My Thoughts:


Want one product that does it all?  Vertere (pronounced ver-tare-ah, which is Latin, meaning “to turn”) is that product!  While Vertere is not an organic line, they are paraben-free, petrolatum-free, mineral-oil free and hydroquinone-free and they do not use animal-derived ingredients and their formula minimizes use of nonrenewable resources.  Additionally, they use a non-bioaccumulative preservative system.  Most importantly?  Vertere works!

Vertere’s skincare line addresses everything that adult skin is desperately fighting: adult acne, enlarged pores, sun damage, hyper pigmentation, redness, drying and aging!  This is perfect for anyone who finds their skincare routine to be long and tedious, since this really does cover everything! This is also perfect to apply before you put your makeup on – as it locks in moisture while fighting all of your blemishes while you cover them up! It’s more than 60% clinically active ingredients include organic peptides, vitamins and botanicals.   I saw a dramatic decrease in wrinkle visibility, dramatic pore tightening and adult acne disappearance!  My skin tone has become more even and my skin is soft as a baby’s bottom!



Vertere Refining Treatment Cleanser:

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

While this cleanser hasn’t officially debuted yet, I’ve been privileged enough to try it for the past month.  Wow.  Wow wow WOW.  Even though I was only gifted a small sample size, I can’t wait for it to be released because it’s been nothing short of miraculous on my skin!  As per Vertere’s request, I forwent my usual black clay soap facial cleanse from Osmia Organics in order to give this a real try on my trip to NY.  Um, can you say ‘Dramatic’?  I had some stress induced breakouts upon landing.  Within 4 days of using a dime size of this cleanser just two times a day, my breakouts were not only gone – they were healing!  And my ‘under the skin’ breakouts were no where to be seen!  This was after drastically stopping my “usual” skincare routine too, which as you know (and during such a stressful time) is hard for me to do!  I’m really so impressed!

Have you tried Vertere yet?
