Ionic text input, placeholder not vertically aligned

I’ve been looking up how to do this myself using CSS however I’ve yet to find a working solution. The text for an input-field is vertically aligned properly, however any placeholder text is aligned at the top (vertically) and ruins the flow of my form.

Does anyone know how I can go about fixing this.

Example code:

         <input type="text" placeholder="This is up top">

This is on every device I’ve tested on.
