Fruit Stem Cells are equipped with the ability to differentiate and self-renew and never experience the aging process; their potential is unlimited and their ability to transform and facilitate growth even under the harshest of conditions is what makes them truly revitalizing to skin cells.
Unlike their plant counterparts, skin stem cells age and deteriorate over time and become damaged and unproductive under stressful influences. Through nature’s brilliance and the most innovative, sustainable and natural technology available, Fruit Stem Cell Science® captures the magic and the resilient power of the oldest and largest living organisms on earth: P L A N T S.
We utilize a unique triple-layering of biofunctional ingredients in every skin care, hair care and body care product for a noticeable improvement in the look and feel of skin and hair health, form and function—with optimum age defying results.
Prized for their ability to withstand extreme conditions, and revered for their composition and resilience, Fruit Stem Cells offer an impressive array of clinically proven benefits that make them more potent than traditional extracts with 1,000 times the protective power of super antioxidants.
Plant stem cell actives often contain a concentration of antioxidants that is 1,000 times greater than other botanical extracts, so they are extremely potent versions of traditional raw material extracts. This potency is clinically proven to increase collagen synthesis and cell renewal and reduce the signs of photo aging*. In clinical trials, the effect of plant stem cell ingredients was tested on cultures of human epidermal stem cells. Data confirmed that the plant stem cell actives can maintain the stem cells’ colony-forming efficiency longer even if the cells were stressed through exposure to UV light. Additional tests on a 3D epidermis model showed that even aged skin stem cells can form a complete epidermis when plant stem cells* are applied.
Stem cells are special, very valuable cells that are present in small numbers in almost every tissue, including the skin. Only stem cells can divide over the course of a person’s life and create new skin cells, continuously renewing the epidermis. As we age, the vitality and number of skin stem cells decreases, the epidermis takes longer to renew itself and wrinkles form. Plant stem cell active ingredients are extracted from pure plant stem cell cultures.
Some of the most promising results with plant stem cell research confirmed that when aged skin stem cells are treated with plant stem cells* they display similar activity to young skin stem cells. These positive effects were also confirmed in tests on test subjects. For example, plant stem cell extracts taken from the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple, a Swiss varietal developed in the eighteenth century to have an especially long shelf life, were shown to provide both a stimulating and protective effect on human skin cells (in a study published in the International Journal for Applied Science, the apple stem-cell application increased in vivo cell turnover and UV resistance). An overview of the clinical test results from our main Fruit Stem Cell ingredients are below as well as detailed information regarding plant stem cell innovation and PhytoCellTec™ global research.
While the science is still in its infancy the clinical results and the consumer satisfaction are very promising with plant stem cells. Only a very small amount of plant material is needed to produce high-quality, powerfully active, plant stem cell ingredients-a single plant can produce a vast number of stem cells so fewer natural resources are needed for their cultivation. A small stem piece, some leaves, is all that is needed. Fruit Stem Cell Science® is inherently sustainable.
It’s extraordinary when you stop to consider that nearly every drug that we have in the world originated with a plant. While scientists can surmise why certain chemical constituents in plants work there always remains a certain amount of mystery as to how they work exactly. Human beings used plants long before scientists could validate their healing properties. Our relationship to plants is more than scientific, it’s energetic, intuitive and as anyone who gardens would say: magical. We believe that eventually all skin and hair products will contain plant stem cells.
