There is a large misconception when it comes to stem cells and skincare. We hear the question all the time; I am not an apple so how can my skin accept an apple stem cell? This is where the misconception occurs. It is not an actual apple stem cell that is used in formulations; it is the secondary metabolites produced by the stem cell that has great benefits on human skin. Let’s take a look behind the formulary curtain, when a lab creates plant derived stem cells they first have to wound the plant, this creates totipotent stem cells. Once the stem cells are transferred to a culture they start to produce secondary metabolites in order to protect themselves during rapid cell division. It is the secondary metabolites that have amazing antioxidant and immune support as well as detoxification and fibroblast stimulation.
Circadia formulates with many plant stem cells to aid in the healing process and helps protect the skin from inflammation and supports the immunity of the skin during the healing process.
Take a look at Circadia’s MeriStem Serum, the apple stem cell (Malus Domestica) is a liposomally prepared Swiss Apple Stem Cell known for its longevity. This product increases vitality, delays senescence, combats chronological aging in skin cells, assists in building new tissue, delays aging and has an anti-wrinkle effect.
