Discover What Plant and Fruit Stem Cells Can Do for Your Skin
If you’ve stopped by the Origins counter recently you may have heard about their new Plantscription line. The Origins Plantscription SPF 25 Anti-Aging Cream uses raspberry plant stem cells as the main ingredient. The product claims to correct fine lines and wrinkles, as well as improving the firmness of the skin and making its overall texture much smoother. Available at most department stores, this product has received rave reviews from consumers.
Eclos Skincare is using apple stem cell technology in their products. Scientists have found that these particular stem cells revive the skin’s own dormant stem cells and help bring new lift and energy to the epidermis (the outermost layers of the skin). Recharging these epidermal cells makes the skin more responsive to all other skincare products being applied, thereby making them much more effective and greatly enhancing the results. Try the Eclos 6-Piece Starter Kit, which is available in most drugstores.
MyChelle Dermaceuticals newest addition is a line called Pure Harmony. The Pure Harmony Cream is a deeply hydrating, restorative face cream that utilizes stem cells from the gardenia plant. These stem cells have been shown to improve the texture of the skin and help to balance the tone. This product was specifically designed for the driest of skin types. You can find it at most health food stores or online.
Andalou Naturals has come out with a new product for oily acne-prone skin, called Aloe + Willow Bark Pore Minimizer. Using a mix of aloe and other herbal stem cells, it encourages the pores to become smaller over time and also keeps the pores from retaining dead skin cells, which is what leads to acne and blackheads in the first place. Aloe stem cells also have the unique ability to regulate the amount of oil the pores are producing. This product can be used on a small section of the face (the nose, for example) or all over. Noticeable results can be seen in less than a week. The pore minimizer can be found in health food stores and online.
Plant and fruit stem cells are a promising new technology, offering new hope for all of our skin issues. Let’s keep an eye on this extremely interesting trend and see what sprouts up next.
