Product Review: Fracora Placenta Capsule

Monday, April 04, 2016

     Okay, so I've realized that I'm already in the stage that I need to amp up my anti-aging skin care regimen. I'm thirty three years old to be exact and women at this age should be more concern in minimizing wrinkles, lift sagging skin, prevent hyper pigmentation, and other skin care dilemma in the anti-aging department.

     So today, I'll be sharing a review of another famous anti-aging plus whitening skin care supplement from Japan- Fracora Placenta Capsule. Does the word placenta scares the hell out of you?I presume that you're thinking of other kind of placenta but fret not as the main ingredient of this supplement was derived from porcine (pig) placenta. To know more about Fracora Placenta and why this anti-aging supplement is famous in Japan scroll down now!

Product Review: Fracora Placenta Capsule
     Before trying this anti-aging product, I made a research. At first I'm not convinced and been contemplating if I really need to try this because it's not the usual whitening supplement that I've taken before. Took Fracora Placenta Capsule for a month and I'm quiet satisfied with the results. If there's a couple of supplements that I need to maintain for the rest of my life to age gracefully, methinks placenta and collagen supplement will be a mainstay in my anti-aging stash. Oh, I'll also be reviewing Meiji Amino Collagen this month too :)

Product Review: Fracora Placenta Capsule
Three capsules before bedtime
     Since this is my first time to take placenta, I will not make a comparison with other brands thus will share my experience after finishing one pack. I took three soft gel capsules before bedtime with warm water. 

What I like:
  • The packaging- it's in a handy and travel-friendly resealable pouch.
  • It's in a soft gel capsule for faster absorption.
  • It's easy to swallow since the size of each soft gel capsule is small compared to other supplements in the same form as fish oil, grapeseed extract, and other medicines.
  • No weird or funky smell.
  • It makes my skin glowing. A glow like that of a mirror reflecting light. 
  • My skin feels soft and smooth to touch.
  • I noticed that it somehow reduced the size of my pores in my nose and cheek area.
  • It maintained my skin tone. I was in Batangas last holy week and we visited different churches for the Visita Iglesia. I basked in the sun for more than five hours. Of course, I have an umbrella with me and I applied sunblock too. It's very hot that day and without maximum protection, the heat and the air can also contribute to skin darkening. Since I'm taking Fracora, I guess it's an added protection against intense sunlight.
  • It made me sleep better at night.
  • No allergies, breakouts, or whatsoever.
  • Batch, manufacturing, and expiry date printed at the bottom of the packaging.

What I don't like:
  • The price- steep for budget conscious individuals.
  • I did not notice any whitening effect as what the product claims on its benefit.
  • Can only be purchased online.
  • Neutral on the wrinkles part as I don't have visible wrinkles yet. 

Will I repurchase: Yes, it's possible!

     I give this a 4.5/5 rating. I think I need more than a month to see the effects on wrinkles and sagging skin. If you're in your middle and late twenties, I suggest you incorporate anti-aging skin care products into your daily regimen. If you wanna age gracefully, investing in topical anti-aging products is a must. If you have the extra budget and you think that it's time to take anti-aging a step further, then taking anti-aging supplements will do.

     I can say placenta supplement is best combined with collagen so, in my next review, I will share with you another collagen supplement that I'm currently road testing and will finish a can soon. But for now, I will still recommend this supplement if you want to start adding an anti-aging supplement in your usual whitening one.

DISCLAIMER: This product was sent to me by Cheska's Online Store for review. The views expressed here are my honest opinion about the product. What works for me may not work for you or vice versa. I don't take placenta on a regular basis. My review is based on my experience during the time and period I'm taking it.


  1. Sounds like a great product! Hopefully people who are interested in this can get some help from your review of this. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Jordan,

      Thank you also for the kind words. I hope they will also find the product effective if they are going to try this.

  2. Hi. I just bought this and I'm quite confused if I'm supposed to take a pill 3 times a day on different times or 3 pills at once before bedtime. My friends are taking one a day in the morning.

  3. Hi Kath! I was wondering if it's safe to consume fracora placenta with shiseido powder collagen.I've been drinking it for a week now. Thanks Kath!

    1. Hi Kathryn,

      Yes, it's okay and safe. Magkaiba naman sila. Mas okay ang effect kasi placenta and collagen.

  4. Have you tried the fracora active nano twrinkle collagen capsule? I want to know if it works. Because as i read about its benefits i feel like its a really must try product too.

    1. Hi,

      I haven't pa. No idea din about this product. I'll check first. I only take supplements if I was ask to review kasi.

  5. Hi, I want to try this product but is it safe to take this supplement? Because I'm afraid it might damage my liver, kidney or etc. Thanks Kath! :)

    1. Hi Carleen,

      This is FDA approved and knowing Japanese naman they have strict standards. Use with supervision din. if you have existing illness or using other medications, I will not suggest taking this. But as a supplement, okay naman.

      Actually, lahat ng medicines may harm our internal organs in the long run lalo na pag hindi tama pag take ng mga ganito. Just my two cents.

  6. Can I take 6 tablets kasi my pimples are too many and sobrang lalaki..?

    1. Hi,

      During the time I'm taking this kasi, wala naman ako pimples so talagang 3 capsules lang yung take ko. Not sure if taking 6 capsules will give a positive results on your pimples.

  7. Hello Ms. Kath,

    Thank you so much for this review. I've been thinking about purchasing this product as well. I hope you can review other supplements from Japan din like yung Fracora Collagen.

    Thank you again and more power to your blog!

    1. Hi,

      The pleasure is mine :) Yes, I will review other Japanese supplements soon. Will check which one first because madami-dami pa din kasi. Thank you!
