With increased stress and pollution in the air, and with so many beauty products and brands on the market claiming to make you look more youthful, which ones are fact, and which ones are fiction?
One of the most advanced breakthroughs in the skincare industry of late has been the integration of Stem Cells, which can trigger efficient movements in the layers of your skin, ensuring you look younger for longer.
In this blog we explore what Plant Stem Cells are, and how they work to rejuvenate, restore and rescue your complexion. Plus, how we utilize this technology in our own skincare range.
What Are Plant Stem Cells?
A plant stem cell is a type of cell that’s capable of self-renewal. They work in the same way as human stem cells, in the sense that they maintain themselves, while providing a steady supply of renewed cells for any existing tissue. They can adapt to other cell forms when needed, and work to repair damage, boost regeneration and support healthy growth and maintenance.
How Do They Work?
In skincare, stem cells have the power to regenerate the epidermis at it’s deepest layers . This means that they work to help renew cells beyond the first layer of skin which means not just glowing skin - but healthy skin too. This is especially important in a day and age where many cosmetics sacrifice skin health for how it looks!
When it comes to strengthening the epidermis around your face, the most effective and powerful product out there is our very own Stem Cell Sheet Mask, which works to improve the health and suppleness of sensitive skin around your face. When placed on your skin, the mask’s cells penetrate into the deepest layers which encourage the production of healthy cells. This ultimately produces plump, youthful skin and diminished fine lines!
Collagen is the main protein in our skin that works to keep it plump and repair any damage. See it as your skin’s building blocks! As we age, the amount of collagen we produce decreases, and this is why we develop wrinkles and fine lines, and we lose that plump, youthful glow. If your skin were capable of making the same amount of collagen forever, you would never age!
One of the most impressive and important job Plant Stem Cells can do, is not only repair your skin, but also encourage collagen production deep within your dermis. Stem Cells in your skincare = younger looking skin!
A very common place that suffers from a lack of collagen as we age is the skin around the eye area. Because of this, we created a specialized and effective Eye Serum to help encourage a higher production of collagen in this area. Encouraging collagen production in this area is key to projecting a youthful look and preventing the delicate skin from sagging and wrinkling.
Antioxidant Healing Power
Not only do Stem Cells help to boost collagen, but they help to heal any small traumas or blemishes which appear on the skin over time. These traumas are caused by everyday stressors, and as we grow older our body takes longer to heal, which means that signs of aging and damage are more apparent. By using Plant Stem Cells in your skincare, you can ensure that any signs of wear and tear are healing as they should. By doing so, they work to visibly reduce the signs of aging, leaving your skin looking more youthful than ever.
The skin in our neck and décolletage area often suffers from advanced aging due to free-radicals, external stressors such as UV rays and pollution. This is because this area is usually left unprotected and therefore begins to age quicker than some areas on your face. Because of this, we created our powerful Neck & Décolletage Cream which is loaded with antioxidants. The creams high antioxidant levels are perfect for reducing sagging and healing those micro-traumas that occur due to sun damage.
Another interesting capability of Plant Stem Cells is their ability to protect your skin from further trauma (and not just healing it). The antioxidants within Plant Stem Cells can actually help build more resilient skin cells which are more capable of fighting off damage and free radicals.
Stem Cells are a highly effective way to help press pause on aging skin. By replacing cells and boosting your collagen levels, Plant Stem Cells are the perfect way to ethically produce a younger and brighter look!
