Plant Stem Cells in Skin Care
Stem cells are found in all multi-celled organisms. Through mitosis, they divide and transform into specialized cell types and repair systems in the body. During the early stages of life, a stem cell has the potential to form itself into different cell types inside the body. In certain organs, such as the intestines and bone marrow, stem cells can divide over and over again to repair and/or replace damaged tissue. Research scientists now use stem cells to test new drugs or medicines and to develop models that are used to study normal development in the body.
Stem cells can also be directed to develop into new and specific cell types. This gives scientists the ability to replace cells and tissues. Besides allowing scientists to treat conditions such as spinal cord injury, stroke, or Alzheimer‘s, stem cells can also treat skin disorders, such as burns, using stem cells from plants like roses. These stem cell-stimulating technologies can also be very effective for anti-aging skincare.
PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica PhytoCellTec™ uses stem cells from a rare Swiss apple famed for its longevity to improve the longevity of human skin cells, protect the skin from UV damage, and support genes that repair DNA. This anti-wrinkle treatment was evaluated in a study of 20 volunteers between the ages of 37 and 64. The cream was applied twice daily to the crows feet around the volunteers‘ eyes. 100% of the participants saw a significant and visible decrease in wrinkle depth by the conclusion of the study. Ageless Derma used this technology to formulate Ageless Derma Stem Cell and Peptide Anti wrinkle Cream.
Lysolecithin stimulates keratinocyte stem cells found in the outer layer of the skin. This helps them to produce energy and enhances enzyme production, which leads to the production of new skin. Ingredients such as retinyl ester lipopeptides regenerate epidermal (outer skin) stem cells, helping to repair DNA damage by metabolizing positive genes. Flaxeedoyl can augment the antioxidant response, which stimulates the renewal of cells.
Plant Stem Cells in Skin Care focus on polypeptides and enzymes to regenerate the body‘s own epidermal stem cells. Actual stem cells are not rubbed onto the skin with these products; the body‘s own skin stem cells are activated and renewed.
The enzymes and polypeptides used in the product renew the skin and make the user look younger.
Stem cell-stimulating products and techniques aid the skin in absorbing appropriate ingredients and help diminish facial lines and wrinkles.
Stem cells taken from fat tissue, developed into a cosmetic serum and smoothed on the skin stimulate collagen production. This helps lift and support sagging skin. They also help the skin to retain its natural moisture, making the user look brighter and younger. Wrinkle filler can be added to the mix to erase crow‘s-feet, laugh lines and frown lines.
Stem cell techniques offer a natural way to look younger without the need for dangerous chemicals, needles, or surgery. If the skin is inflamed, stem cell products combat the inflammation and protect the skin from ultraviolet radiation. Because they also fight against damaging free radicals, stem cell regeneration products can help prevent skin pigment discoloration and collagen loss.
