  • PLANT’S STEM CELLS
  • The plant’s stem cells have a uniformly thin wall of pectin, a large nucleus, very few vacuoles, plastids in the proplastid stage, and numerous ribosomes and mitochondria.

Plant Stem Cells to Protect Skin Stem Cells…. How does it Work? Every stem cell contains specific epigenetic factors, which have the task of preserving the multi-potency and unique ability to self-renew of the stem cells. Plant stemcells also contain such epigenetic factors.

HOW PLANT STEM CELLS ARE PRODUCED The PhytoCellTec™ technology relies on the wound healing mechanism of a plant whereupon following injury the healing of the cut surface begins with the formation of callus cells. This healing tissue consists of dedifferentiated cells which are stem cells and for this purpose a small part of the respective plant (germ, leaf, fruit) was selected and injured to induce callus formation. The callus cells were then cultivated in an appropriate medium and large-scale production was achieved in a specially developed WAVE bioreactor system.

SWISS APPLE STEM CELLS

It is a revolutionary technology designed to protect human skin stem cells with the help of stem cells from a rare Swiss apple. The clinical trials conducted by the company who discovered this ingredient showed that 100% of the participants saw a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles after using a solution containing 2% PhytoCellTech Malus Domestica.

PhytoCellTec™ [Malus domestica; Apple]

The protection of human stem cells by PhytoCellTec™ Malus domestica has been shown by various in-vitro experiments. Other studies demonstrated its age delaying and anti-wrinkle effects. PhytoCellTec™ Malus domestica is a revolutionary active anti-aging ingredient that is based on a high-tech plant cell culture technology.

PhytoCellTec™ Alp Rose

By optimizing the potential of epidermal stem cells, PhytoCellTec™ Alp Rose (Rhododendron ferrugineum) improves epidermal regeneration and thus the quality of the skin barrier. Alp Rose strengthens the skin barrier and makes it More environmental stresses such as UV rays, wind, cold temperatures and dryness. A clinical study performed in the Alps during winter confirmed the capacity of PhytoCellTec™ Alp Rose to reinforce the skin barrier and to reduce aging signs (wrinkles, redness, loss of radiance).

Claim Ideas for PhytoCellTec™ Alp Rose
• Increases skin stem cell vitality
• Boosts epidermal regeneration
• Improves the skin barrier function
• Helps the skin to cope with climate changes

CITRUSTEMTM ™ [Citrus sinensis; Orange]

CITRUSTEMTM is produced from stem cells obtained from the orange (Citrus sinensis). These stem cells contain amino acids, especially proline and betaines. CITRUSTEMTM, obtained from orange stem cells, increases the expression of genes capable of improving the structure of the extracellular matrix.

CITRUSTEMTM organizes and redensifies the dermis structure, by increasing the synthesis of the elements forming the extracellular matrix. A structured dermis translates into a regular and defined microrelief. The skin recovers its smooth and velvety feel. The skin appears renewed, wrinkles are reduced, and its global aspect is improved. It looks younger.

With CITRUSTEMTM, the skin regains the elastic properties of a skin 12 years younger.

PhytoCellTec™ [Solar Vitis; Grape]

Solar Vitis is based on stem cells derived from a specific grape cultivar that has been obtained through a unique PhytoCellTec™ technology. The activity of skin stem cells ensures the vitality and regeneration capacity of the skin. PhytoCellTec™ technology and Solar Vitis both protect and maintain the activity of epidermal stem cells - even in cases of stress induced by UV.

CHLORELLA

Pharmaceutically Grown Pure Chlorella™ (soft cell wall) 100% certified organic Klamath Lake (AFA) and Spirulina

Chlorella contains CGF (chlorella growth factor) and is the richest source of nucleic acids, including RNA/DNA, available.

AFA has 12 vitamins, 27 naturally occurring or magnesium, zinc, calcium of essential minerals, and 11 pigments some of which are precursor to other B vitamins, enzymes, co-enzymes, beta-carotene, bioflavonoids, RNA, superoxide dismutase, catalase, glutathione, selenium, and cysteine, making AFA one of the highest known sources of naturally occurring anti-oxidants or free radical scavengers.

HYALURONIC ACID

Hyaluronic Acid is a natural polysaccharide that retains water like a “sponge”. It forms a protective film and refines skin while reducing water loss. It improves the skin's overall appearance.

Hyaluronic acids are combined to provide anti-wrinkle results that penetrate the entire layer of the skin. Hyaluronic acid of high molecular weight fills in the wrinkle surface to have an immediate effect. Medium molecular hyaluronic acid gradually smoothies out wrinkles. Low molecular hyaluronic acid weight inflates wrinkles from within.

OPTIM HYAL™

OPTIM HYAL™ contains Glycokines™ that mimic biological messengers. Obtained by fermentation, Glycokines™ are oligosaccharides bio-available and rich in the same monosaccharide as hyaluronic acid.

With OPTIM HYAL™, average density and depth of the main wrinkles are significantly reduced.

AZELAIC ACID for Acne or Hyper-Pigmentation

Azelaic Acid is combined with other anti-inflammatory ingredients for clearing acne breakouts, keeping bacteria at bay and even balancing hyper-pigmented areas.

Azelaic acid is a saturated dicarboxylic acid found in wheat, rye and barley but also forms as a natural substance that lives on normal skin. This acid works as a natural antiseptic that is very effective in killing bacteria on the skin.

As a skincare ingredient, it is used to clear the bumps, lesions, and swelling caused by some forms of rosacea and acne. It works as a natural antiseptic, killing the bacteria that infect pores and decreasing production of keratin (a natural substance that can lead to the development of acne if over produced.)

FERULIC ACID

In past posts, Ive mentioned that Vitamin C and Vitamin E work together to protect both the watery parts and fatty parts of the cells and the body from free radical damage. Vitamin C is water soluble and Vitamin E, fat-soluble. But more recent research has shown a third powerhouse ingredient that works with these Vitamins for even more antioxidant protection……. Ferulic Acid.

Ferluic acid is a phyto chemical commonly found in tomatoes, corn, rice, oats, whole wheat, apples, oranges…even coffee and peanuts. When used topically, ferulic acid improves the stability of Vitamins C and E as antioxidants and helps protect your skin from photo damage and sunburn.
