In case you have wondered why this ingredient, PhytoCellTech Malus Domestica is used so generously in our products, this may help you understand why. We are just crazy about this magic ingredient !
In humans, “Epidermal” or skin stem cells replenish and maintain the balance of cells within the skin tissue and regenerate tissue damages during injury. But with age, the number of skin decreases and their ability to repair the skin becomes less efficient. Unless you are injecting human stem cells into a targeted area there is NO scientific proof that there is any benefit applied topically. NONE.
Using Plant Stem Cells to Protect Skin
In contrast to human, plant cells are totipotent, meaning that every cell has the ability to regenerate new organs (leaves, flower, seed…) or even the whole plant. Besides, all plant cells can differentiate and become a stem cell. All stem cells, independently of their origin (plant, animal or human) contain specific epigenetic factors whose function is to maintain the self-renewal capacity of applied stem cells.
The active ingredient PhytoCellTech Malus Domestica, won the prize in European Innovation “Best Active Ingredient” in 2008. It is a revolutionary technology designed by biomedical researchers to protect human skin stem cells with the help of stem cells from a rare Swiss apple. The clinical trials conducted by the company engineers who discovered this ingredient showed that 100% of the participants saw a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles after using a solution containing 2% PhytoCellTech Malus Domestica
PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica is a patented liposomal preparation of apple stem cells derived from the ‘Uttwiler Spätlauber’, a rare Swiss apple variety. These apple stem cells are rich in epigenetic factors and metabolites, which ensures the longevity of skin cells. PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica has been shown to protect skin stem cells while also delaying the senescence of hair follicles. PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica succeeds in delivering a revolutionary anti-aging performance for real rejuvenation.
