Ageing is a thing of the past! Stem cell technology is all you need in your skin care regime
By Chandni Ghosh
When it comes to stem cells, you probably have a vague idea as to what they really are. Perhaps, you know that they are biological cells that play a pivotal role in healing the human body. These cells have the power to make copies of themselves that can perform various functions in the body. Just like human stem cells, plant stem cells too have extraordinary powers. These plant stem cells can also divide to produce more stem cells. Known for their regenerative powers on the skin, these plant stem cells are often mixed with cosmetics to boost the health of the skin. Due to their high concentration of antioxidants, stem cells are the most effective anti-ageing treatment of recent times. Want to know more about the powerhouse technology of stem cells?

What are stem cells?
Stem cells are specialized cells in plants, which when induced in a product, help protect the human skin stem cells and save them from deterioration. Additionally, these stem cells also aid in the stimulation of the skin’s own stem cells. Hence, these plant cells are considered hugely beneficial when it comes to repairing the skin and reversing the signs of ageing.
How do they help?
Before we understand how plant stem cells help in repairing the skin, it is imperative to comprehend the functioning of skin stem cells. Most of these stem cells are a part of the deepest layer of the epidermis and their core job is to replenish the skin as it undergoes regular wear and tear.
However, as we age, stem cells begin to lose their renewal power. So when the skin is hit by environmental stressors like the sun and pollution, it has little to fight back with.
However, studies done in the recent past have stated that stem cells derived from plants have the power to protect skin stem cells and reduce signs of ageing. In fact, these stem cells have the ability to produce copies of themselves to give you healthy skin. Since stem cells help in the growth of new cells, they stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. These are the proteins that, in turn, work overtime to keep wrinkles, fine lines and saggy skin at bay.
Where are these plant stem cells extracted from?
Extracted from plants like those of apples and grapes, these stem cells can help the skin win the battle against the sun and pollution—environmental stressors known to accelerate skin ageing.
How to incorporate stem cell technology into your skin care regime…
Since plant-based stem cells are skin saviors that address visible signs of ageing along with restoring youthful skin, make sure you embrace products that boast of this technology. One such product is the Dermafique Age Defying [BB].
This product is formulated with PhytoCellTecTM, which are rare stem cells extracted from Uttwiler Spätlauber (a Swiss apple that boosts cell production and speeds up the skin’s healing abilities). Along with increasing collagen formation, this product heals damage done by UV rays and performs the regular job of a BB cream, which includes correcting uneven skin tone.
Yet another product that will firm your skin with the power of stem cell technology is the Dermafique Age Defying [Serum]. If you follow the cleansing, toning and hydrating guide to a tee, it’s about time a serum of this stature took charge of your skin care regimen too. This anti-ageing elixir also contains PhytoCellTecTM—the stem cells extracted from Uttwiler Spätlauber (a Swiss apple). These stem cells, known for their exceptional longevity and regenerative power, increase cellular activity and combat the signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines in the skin.
