New frontiers of beauty

Thanks to a study carried out years ago by a group of Swiss researchers, it was discovered that stem cell extracts are able to interact with skin and hair follicle cells, increasing their lifespan and improving their regenerative capacity, thereby slowing down the physiological aging process of the skin and hair. The results of the study also showed that the extracts obtained from the stem cells of a certain Swiss apple variety, combatted the formation of free radicals, therefore also demonstrating an antioxidant action. 

 

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are basic cells that can become almost any type of cell in the body. They are able to multiply quickly and can both “self-renew”, that is, make identical copies of themselves, and develop into more specialized cells for the specific tissue or organ in which they live, like in the animal world, for example muscles, liver, kidney, or blood. Thanks to the latter process, which is called cell differentiation, the stem cells are able to replace the old ones (dead or no longer functional), repairing diseased or damaged tissues and organs.

 

What’s the connection between stem cells and cosmetics?

It should be noted that the cosmetic ingredient used in the finished product is not the whole stem cell, but stem cell extracts. These extracts are concentrated in substances such as vitamins, amino acids, lipids, and minerals, thereby obtaining functional properties that are able to collaborate directly with other cells, which then intervene in those physiological processes that slow down their activity over time. Green stem cells help stimulate fibroblasts, increase fibroblast proliferation, protect cells against damage from ultraviolet radiation, and counteract the action of free radicals, thereby helping to slow down chronological aging and photo-aging. These cells also contain so-called EGF-like domains (Epidermal Growth Factor), very similar to human ones, and are therefore used in cosmetics to stimulate tissue regeneration and trophism.
