Model, mom, and Kora Organics founder Miranda Kerr is turning 40 soon — and she has a gift for the rest of us.
Following two years of development, Kerr's skincare brand finally released its Plant Stem Cell Retinol Alternative Serum, the first certified organic product of its kind. According to the brand, the serum contains five times the active power of retinol and effectively smooths wrinkles, firms skin, and boosts antioxidant production to treat and prevent visible signs of aging.

"I'm coming up to 40 and constantly looking for ways to improve the texture of my skin," Kerr tells PEOPLE. "I've tried retinol in the past but it was super sensitive on my skin." That's what inspired her to create a product that was both gentle and efficacious with organic ingredients.
In a clinical study of 50 people who regularly use traditional retinol, 80 percent found Kora's alternative more effective and 90 percent said it left their skin without irritation, redness, or drying. "You can't use [retinol] every day," Kerr says. "I can use this product morning and night, so I feel like I'm getting double support of that cellular turnover in a way that's healthy."
A flexible mindset and the new Kora Organics serum are just two of Kerr's essentials for staying well and feeling good. Keep scrolling to see more of her can't-live-without products for supporting her mind and body.
