As we age, the reduced turnover of our cells means we can lose control over how our skin ages. Epidermal stem cells needed to create healthy new skin are significantly reduced and function less efficiently. Stem cells are building blocks that play important roles in cellular renewal and regeneration, but they become less potent over time. Fortunately, fruits and plants are sources of “universal cells” that can increase the longevity of our skin’s stem cells, renew dormant cells, repair damage, and regenerate healthy cells. They also defend against harmful ultraviolet, oxidative, and environmental stresses.
Scientists from Mibelle BioChemistry have found that a novel extract derived from the stem cells of a rare apple tree cultivated for its extraordinary longevity shows tremendous ability to rejuvenate aging skin. By stimulating aging skin stem cells, this plant extract has been shown to lessen the appearance of unsightly wrinkles. Clinical trials show that this unique formulation increases the longevity of skin cells, resulting in skin that has a more youthful and radiant appearance.
PhytoScience Double Stem Cell powder, a delicious proprietary blend of the signature stem cell extracts – PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica (Apple Stem Cells) & PhytoCellTec™ Solar Vitis (Grape Stem Cells), enriched with phytonutrient-rich superstars – Euterpe Oleracea (Acai Berry) and Vaccinium Myrtilus (Blueberry), is exclusively formulated by Mibelle BioChemistry to effectively help you regain control and keep aging at bay.
The basal (innermost) layer of the skin’s epidermis comprises two basic types of cells: the slowly diving epidermal stem cells (that represent about 2-7% of the basal cell population) and (2) their rapidly dividing offspring that supply new cells to replace those that are lost or dying.
The slow self-renewal process of epidermal stem cells, however, creates a problem. Because each epidermal stem cell only lasts for a certain number of divisions, and because each division runs the risk of lethal DNA mutation, the epidermal stem cell population can become depleted. When this happens, lost or dying skin cells begin to outnumber their replacement and the skin’s health and appearance start to decline. So what can be done? Scientists turned to plants for the answer.
Plants also have stem cells. Like humans, plant stem cells depend on epigenetic control and signals from surrounding cells for their development. Unlike humans, however, each plant-derived adult stem cell possesses the ability to generate a whole new plant. Scientists in Mibelle BioChemistry have found a way to harness the power of plant stem cells by growing plant tissues in culture.
