Plant Steam Cells: What Are They And Are They For You?
Plant based stem cells could be an important part of your skin care regimen if you experience any of the following concerns:
- Signs of aging: Loss of firmness and elasticity, fine lines or deep wrinkles
- Breakouts/ blemishes
- Inflammation or redness
- Pigmentation issues
- Sun damage
- Sensitivity/ irritation
According to CEO and co-formulator of HydroPeptide, April Zangl, plant stem cells are powerfully concentrated botanicals rich in amino acids, anti-inflammatories, antioxidants and minerals.
Stem cells from plants such as Edelweiss, Gardenia, Echinacea, Gotu Kola, Lilac and Buddleja, help protect “mother cells” in the base layer of the epidermis produce healthy “daughter cells” which result in a positive cell turnover rate, more nourished skin, and a healthy, youthful glow.
When choosing a stem cell rich product, it is imperative that you find a quality product with a high percentage of stem cells, which should be listed near the beginning of the ingredient list. At TruGlo Medspa one of our favorite skin care lines is HydroPeptide, which has several products rich in plant based stem cells and high quality peptides to nourish and protect your skin.
