What are Stem Cells
Stem cells, which occur in living organisms (including the human body), are different from other cells for two reasons. One, they are capable of renewing themselves, and two, under certain conditions, they can be induced to become cells that serve specific functions. They’re important because of their regenerative properties—stem cells offer a new way to treat certain diseases, and are often used in labs for screening new drugs and other biological research.
The revolutionary idea behind stem cells in skin care is that by applying them topically, we can stimulate the growth of more stem cells. And because they can regenerate, they’ll keep our skin looking youthful and healthy. Most stem cells used in beauty products are derived from plants. Research suggests that skin products containing stem cells can stimulate cell turnover and boost collagen. The stem cell treatments we have tried certainly seem to be more effective and fast-acting than your average anti-agers.
Plant-derived stem cells
Plant derived stem cells are typically obtained from plants and fruits that can stay fresh for a long time or regenerate on their own, like Swiss apples, gotu kola, and grapes. Extracts of these stem cells are added to products to help neutralize free radicals and fight signs of aging.
Scientists have found that a novel extract derived from the stem cells of a rare apple tree cultivated for its extraordinary longevity shows tremendous ability to rejuvenate aging skin. By stimulating aging skin stem cells, this plant extract has been shown to lessen the appearance of unsightly wrinkles. Clinical trials show that this unique formulation increases the longevity of skin cells, resulting in skin that has a more youthful and radiant appearance.
Eminence Organic Bamboo Firming Fluid was created around the resilient power of these natural botanical-based stem cells. In addition to the extract from the swiss apple stem cell, this product is highly concentrated—you don’t need much for your entire face! Antioxidants and cell production-boosting benefits make this the perfect anti-aging product to add to your regimen.
