As we grow older our body goes through many changes. One of these changes is the skin’s ability to self-renew and replace damaged or dead skin cells at an efficient rate. You may be wondering why does this change happen? Well, as you age there is a decline in the skin stem cells, leading to less skin cells for the self-renewal process. The decrease in cell regeneration is caused by many internal and external factors. Internal factors such as an unbalanced diet, smoking, stress and external factors like pollution and UVA/UVB rays can attribute to the decrease in cell renewal. These various factors leave us with less skin cells available to aid in the cell renewal process.
Scientists have found incorporating plant stem cells into skincare products can yield many benefits. Plant stem cells have the ability to self-renew, protect human stem cells from damage and stimulate human stem cells that are deteriorating to become active again. The plant stem cell are safe and organic with no environmental contaminants, readily available throughout the year with unlimited cultivation, of standard quality and are sustainable. Plant stem cells are a great way to slow down the impact of free-radical damage. It is important for the skin, the body’s largest organ, to have potent and stable protection from free-radical damage and keep it from harming your skin.
