Over the years, we've seen a lot of bizarre ingredients in skincare - egg whites, fish water and even snail slime! But there's another ingredient that has caused quite a stir: STEM CELLS!
These little miracle workers can help repair and heal your skin, fight off wrinkles and fine lines and protect against free radicals that cause premature signs of aging; but what exactly are stem cells?
And how can they transform from plant-based material into something transformative for our faces?
In this blog we'll answer your questions before discussing 5 reasons why you should try it out for yourself!
1. STEM CELLS ARE THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF OUR BODY, AND THEY CAN BE USED TO REGENERATE SKIN CELLS.
Stem cells are a type of cell that can divide and renew. They can be found in all different types of organisms, including humans! Stem Cell Skincare harnesses the power of these cells to restore your skin's youthful appearance.
These cells play a pivotal role in how plants and skin visibly repair and rejuvenate themselves once they’ve been damaged. Stem cell skincare products use these amazing cells to renew your skin naturally so it looks healthy and luminous again!
Even more exciting, because these cells are healthy and unspecialised, there are no adverse reactions to these products.
2. STEM CELLS ARE FOUND IN EXTRACTS OF PLANTS.
The stem cells used in beauty products are extracted from a variety of plants, making them vegan friendly!
Plants used include apples, tomatoes, flowers like lilacs, berries, algae, and ginger provide plant stem cells and many have their own unique benefits!
Our Stem Cell Active Skin Polish is packed with some of these extracts including hibiscus flower, apple, and Gotu kola which is known for its regenerative properties!
Interestingly, the stem cells in your beauty products have been long dead and their numerous benefits actually come from the stem cell extracts taken from plants.
Plant stem cells may not be alive anymore, but they're just as helpful at reducing wrinkles and dark spots!
3. STEM CELLS CAN INCREASE COLLAGEN PRODUCTION.
Collagen is a crucial building block for our skin, organs and joints! Sadly, our body’s production of collagen slowly decreases as we age (a 25% decrease by age 40 and down to 50% by your 60’s)
Luckily, stem cells can help by producing more collagen that improves skin elasticity and reduces wrinkles so you have a youthful complexion.
The added grapeseed extract in our intensely hydrating Stem Cell Active Face Mask gives the skin a boost by stimulating collagen production.
4. STEM CELL SKINCARE CAN HELP WITH AGEING SKIN.
As we get older, our stem cell function declines which in turn reduces the production of healthy skin cells.
This can lead to wrinkles and dark spots but the beauty of stem cell technology is that it can create new skin cells to keep you youthful looking!
Thanks to the hibiscus extract used in our Stem Cell Active Botox Moisturiser, elasticity of skin is increased and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is reduced!
This ingredient is renowned for its rejuvenating properties that it's even been nicknamed the 'botox plant'!
5. STEM CELL PRODUCTS CAN HELP PROTECT AGAINST ENVIRONMENTAL EXPOSURE.
As we age, your skin becomes thinner and less able to repair itself. This leaves it vulnerable to external factors such as pollution and sun exposure that can damage your cells over time.
But you're not powerless!
Luckily, another ground-breaking benefit of stem cells is that they are rich in antioxidants, which have numerous benefits. These particles help reduce inflammation and irritation on your skin and reduce the effects of pollution and sun damage on your skin!
This makes stem cell skincare a fighter against signs of aging and environmental exposure! To discover more ways of preventing ageing signs, head over to our blog on, 5 Ways to Slow Down Ageing Naturally.
