“Stem cells are unspecialized cells found in all living organisms. Unlike an epithelial cell, […], a stem cell has no physiological specialization. The definition of a stem cell is essentially based on two characteristics: a) self-renewal, or the ability to generate a undifferentiated cell exactly equal to the mother through many cell cycles; b) power, ie the ability to differentiate into specialized cell types. “[source: Treccani.it]
Plant stem cells contain active substances essential for life such as proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, minerals and some other components that can help protect the skin cells and to play an action of “restructuring and renewal” of the epidermis, resulting in synergistic effects targeted to the treatment of wrinkles.
According to the formulations, we use two types of extracts of stem cells:
Leontopodium Alpinum Stem Cells:
The Leontopodium Alpinum or Edelweiss is a plant of the Asteraceae family that grows naturally on the mountain chains of the Pyrenees, the Alps and the Himalayas. It ‘s very rare. The Edelweiss has developed mechanisms of defense to survive in the extreme heights where he lives, and to protect itself by high exposure to solar radiation. Scientific studies have shown the presence in the plant of potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatory substances with cytoprotective properties. The rejuvenation of the skin due to the presence of stem cells of plant origin, is due to their totipotency regenerative, or stimulate the cells present in the body and promote the reparative processes of all types of fabric. These stem cells play a double role in stimulating the formation of collagen and elastin and fight cellular aging by counteracting the degradation of hyaluronic acid.
Syringa Vulgaris (Lilac) Stem Cells:
better known by the name of Common Lilac, is a shrub of the Oleaceae family. Native to southeastern Europe, now grows wild throughout Europe. Contains verbascoside and isoverbascoside, substances with high sebum normalizer power, anti-reddening and bacteriostatic. Its stem cells exert a control on the control mechanisms of the sebum-regulating through the inhibition of 5α-reductase (local testosterone activator), the reduction of inflammation and a bacteriostatic action against the Propionibacterium acnes.
