They have been hailed as the “anti-aging bodyguard” but what are plant stem cells and how can they help us achieve a more youthful complexion?
Plant stem cells serve as the origin of plant vitality, they are thought to replenish the environment in which our own stem cells live, thereby re-triggering regenerative functions.
In contrast to epidermal stem cells, plant stem cells are totipotent, meaning they are capable of regenerating an entirely new, whole plant. Through innovative plant stem cell technology, scientists are able to extract tissue from botanicals, meaning that the plant’s ability to regenerate stem cells can be harnessed for use on humans by incorporating them carefully and precisely into the skin care we use.
The ability to replace, instead of simply repairing, damaged skin cells is becoming more of a possibility with the advancements in plant stem cell technology.
From our research and passion for finding the best natural and botanical actives on the market, we made the decision to incorporate plant stem cells to our Regenerating line of skincare as we felt that they are the perfect fit.
Our natural anti-aging eye cream features the highly prized LEONTOPODIUM ALPINUM which is particularly beneficial to the eye contour and our Rose Renew Face cream will be incorporating the renowned skin renewing GLOBULARIA CORDIFOLIA each has been carefully chosen for the specific attributes they can bring to each of our products.
LEONTOPODIUM ALPINUM or Edelweiss grows spontaneously on mountain ranges from Pyrenees and Alps to Himalaya. An eco-sustainable mountain flower belonging to the daisy or sunflower family. Edelweiss has developed many defensive mechanisms in order to survive to survive cold, dry harsh climates and protect itself from high-level exposure to solar radiations. Scientific studies have demonstrated the presence in the plant of powerful antioxidants Leontopodic acid A is a strong antioxidant substance – 3 times more efficient than Vitamin C.
GLOBULARIA CORDIFOLIA or Heart-leaf Globe Daisy is a dainty, petite blossom with a spherical head of periwinkle petals. This dwarflike, perennial green clings to craggy peaks where temperatures can drop up to 22 degrees below zero and snow can fall year-round. It’s this resiliency that makes Globularia Cordifolia so potently anti-aging. In order to bloom and thrive in these extreme conditions, the Globularia Cordifolia had to evolve. Its evolutionary process resulted in plant cells that live comparatively forever, detoxify naturally and regenerate overnight.
Here are just a few of the benefits these stem cell-rich botanicals are known to possess.
• Revitalize and brighten dull and tired skin
• Boosts epidermal regeneration
• Protect skin from UV oxidative stress
• Stimulates the proliferation of human skin stem cells
• Combats destructive free radical injury that leads to photoaging
