Stem Cells

Plant stem cells are a breakthrough in Pro Youth therapy and a revolutionary new approach to cosmeceuticals. Every plant cell has the ability to regenerate (totipotency) new organs (leaves, stem, flowers, and seeds) or even the whole plant throughout its entire life. Plant cells can “dedifferentiate” and become stem cells. If a plant is wounded, surrounding cells dedifferentiate (stem cells), forming a wound-healing tissue (callus). If the wounded area is closed, the cells begin to differentiate again and build up a new tissue. Causes of wounding might include DNA damage, telomere shortening and oxidative stress.

In humans, skin stem cells are located in the basal layer where 2-7% of cells are stem cells. Their primary roles are to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues. Using real plant stem cells to trigger the rejuvenation of the skin delays the natural aging process by maintaining the activity of skin stem cells.

Research has proven the application of apple stem cell extract increases the protection of skin stem cells against UV-radiation, promotes the lifespan of stem cells, reduces skin wrinkles and contains cells with metabolites which insure longevity of skin cells.

New cell culture technology makes it now possible to cultivate cells of endangered and rare species, guaranteeing the preservation of limited plant stocks - this was an important factor for cultivar selection using plant stem cells for skin stem cell protection.

With the ever-advancing technology of an eco-sustainable plant stem cell, a process that physiologically orientates the production of Leontopodic Acid A, provides potent antioxidant support 3x more efficient than typical vitamin C sources. By harnessing the proteins from the natural defensive responses of edelweiss and gardenia to protect against environmental physical and biological stress, we may now strengthen skin to reduce eye contour wrinkles, prevent collagen loss, firm and smooth skin and aid with aging and photo-aging prevention.

Through the in vitro culture of plant stem cells in protected and highly controlled conditions, green biotechnology substitutes the traditional production of this plant’s natural actives with incomparable advantages in terms of quality and eco-sustainability. Leontopodium alpinum stems are the first stem cell ingredient characterized and standardized in the protective metabolites naturally produced by a plant to survive its harsh native environment at high altitude on the mountain.

With the in vitro culture of gardenia jasminoides callus, plant stem cells not only reduce MMP-1 (an important aging marker involved in extracellular matrix degradation)in accelerated aged fibroblasts but stimulate new collagen with an efficacy comparable to that of vitamin C. The cells can also identify specific substances with high biological activities.

We provide several different formulations using various plant stem cell sources to help delay the natural aging process, assist in rejuvenating the basal layer and rejuvenate the extracellular matrix.

  • Apple (Malus Domestica) Fruit Cell Culture - Sea Gems
  • Meristem (Edelweiss) Cell Culture and Gardenia Jasminoides Callus Culture – C-Stem Cell
  • Plantain Leaf Stem Cell Extract – AGE less
  • Syringa Vulgaris (Lilac) Leaf Cell Culture and Globularia Cordifolia Callus Culture – Synergy A

Cleansing

This is the first step of your regimen.

Apply 1 pump of cleanser onto clean, damp hands and gently massaging into the skin. Add more water to create lather and work into skin for 1-2 minutes. Remove with gentle (soft) white cloth for several rinses if needed. Pat or air-dry skin before applying next step.

This is the most important step of any acne regimen! Rotating or having two cleansers can help keep skin responding. It is very important to use a soft cloth or 4x4 gauze to remove.

Tonic

This is the next step of your regimen after cleansing.

Apply 1-2 pumps of tonic onto a clean cotton round or 2x2 gauze pad. Apply to clean, dry skin. Let product absorb.

Tonics are a vital component in most acne regimens. These may be used full face or as a spot treatment over acne blemishes. Depending on the tonic, application may range from one to three times per week, to a daily application.

Building & Strengthening (AM)

Apply 1-2 pumps onto fingertips and gently massage into clean, dry skin. Let serum absorb. May layer moisturizer overtop.

Correctives (PM)

Apply 1 pump onto clean, dry skin. Let product absorb. May layer moisturizer overtop.

Correctives are great for boosting cellular exfoliation. Follow directed use on each product to increase optimal results.

Hydrators & Moisturizers

This is the last step of your regimen.

Apply 1-2 pumps onto fingertips and gently massaging into clean, dry skin or over your favorite RA Building & Strengthening or Corrective serum.
