Stem cells have regenerative properties for our body.
Stem cells are responsible for creating new tissue. They can firstly be transformed into different specialized cells and secondly possess the ability to renew themselves through cell division and to regenerate during a lifetime.
Stem cells can develop into a variety of cell types, a process called “differentiation.”
During the early stages of human development, stem cells in the embryo, ‘differentiate’ into all types of body cells: brain, bone, heart, muscle, skin, …
Skin stem cells of the skin.
Epidermal stem cells are located in the deepest layer of the epidermis (stratum basale).
In this layer, in a seventh half of the cells are stem cells. They do not differ externally from other cells in the basal layer, although they have a very special mission: constant renewal of the epidermis by forming new keratinocytes, and regeneration of damaged tissue. Because they are the only cells able to divide themselves. Whereas the epidermis of the young skin regenerates entirely in about four weeks, this process slows down with increasing age.
On one hand, the number of epidermal stem cells decreases and on the other hand, their effectiveness is lessened. As a result, the skin thins and wrinkles, the hydrolipidic film is refined, making the skin drier and more fragile. As, during the life, no new epidermal stem cell is created, it is especially important to maintain as long as possible the vitality and capacity of these valuable division epidermal cells.
Plant stem cells protect epidermal stem cells.
Each stem cell has the function to preserve the capacity for self-renewal.
Plant stem cells possess factors similar to human stem cells. These can positively influence the vitality of epidermal stem cells.
The Uttwiler Spätlauber is an old Swiss variety. Because this apple was conserved during a long time without wrinkle or loseflavor, it was obviously containing special substances and stem cells which lifetime was particularly long.
Plant stem cells for serves skin stem cells. There action
PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica, the active ingredient based on apple stem cells, promotes the vitality and longevity of skin stem cells, that age slows down.
Plant stem cells can delay aging of the skin by protecting vital epidermal stem cells.
- Like that, the skin conserves youth longer. It looks better and fresher.
- Preserves the ability to form new epidermal tissue
PhytoCellTec™ Solar Vitis is based on stem cells from the Gamay Teinturier Fréaux grape – a grape from Burgundy, which is characterized by an extremely high content of polyphenols for UV protection.
Extensive studies have shown that PhytoCellTec™ Solar Vitis reliably protects epidermal stem cells from UV stress and then from skin aging caused by light. Increases the vitality and efficiency of all essential skin cells and improves the skin’s resistance.
Using plant stem cells, skin aging is delayed, because of the main skin cells protection, the stem cells.
PhytoCellTec™ Solar Vitis protects the skin from aging and light-induced aging. Skin cells keep active longer and the skin looks young and beautiful longer.
