What are Plant Stem Cells used for?
Plants have an amazing ability to regenerate at both the cellular and tissue level. This is the reason why we can pick flowers and leaves off plants and they grow back just as good as new. It is to harness this ability of self-renewal that plant stem cells are making their way into beauty care products. So how do they work and what are the benefits of using plant stem cells to care for skin and hair?
Plant stem cells are undifferentiated cells that divide to produce more stem cells or become specialized cells. They are broken open to add to beauty care products and hence what is usually active in the product is the plant stem cell extract. This releases high concentrations of antioxidants and growth factors which do wonders for your skin and hair.
The benefits of Plant Stem Cells
Plant stem cells have a potent ability to rejuvenate aging and damaged skin. They work by keeping the skin’s protein complexes from degrading and shortening with age. Different plant stem cells can also offer more targeted results like apple stem cells which reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while tomato stem cells protect skin from environmental stressors and damage.
Stem cells also contain amino acids and peptides which are powerhouses for skin care. These are the building blocks for cell regeneration. They provide intense nourishment to skin cells which promotes cell turnover and also boosts collagen production. They penetrate deeply through the layers of the skin and thicken skin cells which are weak and damaged. This results in improved skin tone, texture, well nourished, and younger looking skin.
Plant stem cells have become hugely popular in hair loss treatments. They also offer a range of benefits for scalp care as well. They strengthen hair by rebalancing the scalp and ensuring that hair receives appropriate nutrition. They also ensure that hair is deeply and intensely hydrated which prevents roots from weakening and softens hair as well. They rejuvenate hair by penetrating the scalp barrier and speeding up the replacement of dead cells by healthier cells.
