Plant Stem Cells Vs. Human Stem Cells in Anti-Aging Cosmeceuticals

A.

Many products on the market feature non-human plant based stem cells that are derived from apples, melons or rosebuds. While those may have value as antioxidants and are a good source of metabolites, they can’t identify or facilitate skin repair like human stem cells.

For example: a bruise on your arm will heal in several days because stem cells are activated to repair the injury. However, a bruised apple will be forever bruised. There may be ways that plant based stem cells benefit the skin, but they don’t function the same way that human stem cells do. Additionally we haven’t seen clinical studies to support or prove that human skin responds to plant stem cells.

Our skin and hair care lines features concentrated growth factors and cytokines derived from human non-embryonic adipose stem cells. These stem cells are not derived from fruits, vegetables or any other plant-based material.

Q?

Are these anti-aging stem cell cosmetics safe?

A.

Adipose (“fat”) Stem Cell derived cytokines and growth factors are completely safe. They are the identical proteins found and produced within your skin.

Q?

Why use stem cell derived media in anti-aging skin and hair care?

A.

As we get older our stem cells weaken and the effects of aging becomes more apparent.

Stem cells contain a large number of fundamental proteins called growth factors that are needed for the proper development of the body’s organs and tissues.

The stem cell extracts (growth factors and cytokines) in skin & hair care help detect damaged and photo damaged skin cells, stimulating the skin's own abilities to repair.

The extracts can improve skin firmness and elasticity, thickness, skin tone and brightness giving them anti-aging properties. Fine lines and wrinkles also diminish over time, but the number one thing we hear from our customers is that their skin looks and feels brighter, more luminous and healthy. Generally, peak improvement is reached after six to eight weeks (or two complete cellular renewal cycles) of continuous use, although many people tell us that they see improvement almost immediately.

Q?

What are Stem Cells?

A.

Our bodies contain stem cells in the skin, fat, brain, blood, liver, bone marrow, muscles and organs. These stem cells are special types of cell that exists in tissue as a sort of internal repair system. They are usually dormant in our bodies and activate when they detect injury and recognize the need for repair or regeneration. That’s their purpose in life—to repair damaged tissue.
