Stem cells have been a topic ofincreased research and advancementin the past decade—along withpassionate debate from those who touttheir health-promoting potential andthose who warn of the slippery ethicalslope they represent. However, recentlyscientists have found a way to gainsome of the health benefits of stemcells without the moral ambiguity: byharvesting them from plants and fruitinstead of human tissue. These plantstem cells show remarkable promise,and they’re already proving themselvesto be powerful skin healers.Plant stem cells are perhaps the most promising field of research in skin care today.
Benefits of Plant Stem Cells
At the Cellular Level
The decline of the skin and body’s regenerative potential at the cellular level is a main component of aging skin. The skin is in a constant state of renewal—sloughing cells every single day—so it requires non-stop cell replacement. Therefore it’s essential that we optimize epidermal stem cell population throughout our lives . Reversing thecell decline in the skin will directly relate to a youthful complexion.
Plant Stem Cells have a very strong ecological story. The new cell culture technology makes it possible to cultivate cells from endangered or rare species. Having access to cells that can proliferate seemingly endlessly—and transform into the types of cells the body needs - offering amazing potential. The process is very simple.
1. A small quantity is taken from the plant, known as the explant.
2. The plant begins healing where the material was extracted and creates a callus.
3. The explant is then incubated so it can harvest the plant stem cells used in skin care products.
This standardized process is free of pollutants, impurities and is independent of season and other environment restraints. All the while, and most importantly preserving rare and limited plants.
