Learn more about the wonders plant stem cell technology can do for your skin


Adult stem cells are found in many organs and tissues, including the skin. In fact, human skin is the largest repository of adult stem cells in the body. Skin stem cells reside in the basal layer of the epidermis where they remain dormant until they are activated, mostly by tissue injury. To perform their functions, stem cells, unlike other cells, are able to produce copies of themselves over long periods of time. Skin stem cells can receive the message to create proteins, carbohydrates and lipids to help repair fine lines, wrinkles and restore and maintain firmness and elasticity.


Meet The Incredible Abilities Of Plant Stem Cells For The Human Body And Skin

Medical researchers have long studied the incredible ability of stem cells, which can regenerate and form almost any cell type in the body, to treat numerous chronic diseases. Now skin care brands, like LIV.UNIQUE, are hoping that stem cells can deliver the powerful results in the cosmetics industry that they have in medicine.

While most cells in an organism have a specific purpose, stem cells are full of potential. The way stem cells function in sustain growth and repair tissues is comparable in both plants and animals. When applied to your skin, their similar growth factor and production of collagen and elastane, help firm wrinkles and slow down the aging process.

Stem cells contain two key components: growth factors, which play a role in cell division, the growth of new cells, and the production of collagen and elastin; and proteins, which regulate that stem-cell division. The skin is covered by the epidermis therefore, there must be a continuous delivery of newly differentiating cells. This shows the importance of the healthy and vitality of stem cells in the skin.

In the skin, stem cells divide and replace lost or dying cells. They also repair the skin when it suffers an injury or acne. The epidermis is in a constant state of renewal, therefore requires non-stop cell division and replacement. Thus it’s essential that we optimize epidermal stem cell population throughout our lives, especially as we age.


The Most Promising Field Researched In Skin Care And Anti-Aging Solutions

At LIV.UNIQUE nutrient skincare we are using the no.1 award winning ingredient PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica™, a patented liposomal preparation of apple stem cells derived from the ‘Uttwiler Spätlauber’, a rare Swiss apple variety. Uttwiler Spätlauber apples, known to stay fresh for an extraordinarily long time, might have stem cells with a special epigenetic profile.

This rare apple tree is nothing to be compared to in the plant world. This unique apple tree is a variety of a Swiss apple (Malus domestica) that is derived from a seedling planted in the middle of the 18th century. It was very famous for its excellent storability without shriveling. Uttwiler Spätlauber apples have especially long-living tissue stem cells, while their specific composition of metabolites leads to incredible storability and longevity properties.

Another incredible ability of this apple is that if the apple was damaged while on the tree, the apple tissue fuses and damage to apple disappears from the surface, by reproduction of stem cells in the damaged area and by creating new, fresh and young replacement cells. Once the apples’ tissue is new, the signs of damage are completely illuminated. No wonder this unique ingredient was awarded 1st place in the most green, healthy and effective ingredients in the world.

When applied on the skin, these rich in epigenetic factors and metabolites, have an amazing anti-wrinkle effect on crow’s feet and have been shown to protect and ensures the longevity of skin stem cells, while delaying the senescence of essential skin cells. They have been shown to protect skin stem cells while also delaying the senescence of hair follicles and it succeeds in delivering a revolutionary anti-aging performance for real rejuvenation.

The extract of Uttwiler Spätlauber stem cells was obtained after lysis of the plant cells using high pressure homogenisation. For preparation of this unique ingredient, the extract was incorporated into lecithin liposomes for a higher and more effective absorption into the cells.
