The skin is the largest organ in the body and it plays a vital role in protecting us from the outside world. It is also responsible for regenerating new cells, which is why it's so important to take care of our skin on a DAILY basis. One of the best ways to protect and regenerate skin cells is with high-quality ingredients. In this case, we are diving deep and taking a look at the benefits of apple stem cells when it comes to skincare. Apple stem cells have been shown to boost the production of human stem cells (we gotta boost that collagen), protect them from stress, and decrease wrinkles. This makes apple stem cells a key ingredient when it comes to your skincare routine! If you’re trying to keep a tight leash on the effects of aging, then you may want to consider reading a little further!
Before we dive into the role that stem cells play in our skin, let’s just quickly remind you of the different layers! The skin is composed of 3 layers: the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. The epidermis is the outermost layer and it's responsible for protecting the skin from the outside world. The dermis is located below the epidermis and it contains connective tissues, hair follicles, and sweat glands, and the hypodermis is the deepest layer of the skin. It contains fatty tissues and connective tissues, and plays a key role in regulating body temperature and providing insulation.
What are stem cells?
So what are stem cells? This is what sets stem cells apart from other cells in the body - their ability to endlessly regenerate, which is why they're so important for repairing and regenerating skin tissue. Apple stem cells have been found to be especially beneficial for this purpose, thanks to their ability to protect human stem cells and even help regenerate them over time (but more info on this soon).
So what does this mean for skin? Essentially, it means that stem cells are constantly working to protect the skin from damage and keep it looking healthy and youthful. As stem cells have a limited life, it is important to protect and support them in order to delay the aging process. As we age, the number of activities stem cells in our skin becomes greatly reduced, which is why we start seeing the fine lines and wrinkles. We can mitigate these results and help control our aging much more over time.
How can apple stem cells help aging skin?
By using a product that contains apple stem cells in it (keep an eye out for organic ingredients), you can help keep your skin looking healthy and youthful for longer. Some of the benefits of using an apple stem cell-based product include:
-Improved collagen production: Apple stem cells have been shown to boost collagen production, which can help keep your skin looking smooth and more elastic.
-Reduced wrinkles and fine lines: The anti-aging effects of apple stem cells can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, especially with consistent use.
-Protection from environmental stressors: Apple stem cells can help protect the skin from the damaging effects of UV radiation, pollution, and other environmental stressors.
How does it work?
Apple stem cells are so beneficial for skin care because of their ability last over long periods of time. Years ago, Swiss scientists discovered the unique longevity of the stem cells that kept specific Swiss-grown Uttwiler Spätlauber apples alive for MUCH longer than expected. This was a few months after regular apples shrivelled and fell off their trees, or began decomposition. It is amazing how this directly translates to the protection of our skin!
These scientists found the internal fluid of the plant cells to contain particular components that could help maintain human stem cells over long periods of time. Apple stem cells contain metabolites, which improve longevity. This Swiss tree (Uttwiler Spätlauber) is known for the fact that its fruit keeps well over long periods of time.
There is no denying the effectiveness these stem cells can have on our bodies when it comes to protecting our skin for the long term. Just in case you needed one last bit of info, scientists have put the apple stem cell molecule to the test and when applied to the earliest form of human stem cells (found in umbilical cords). It was found that the number of human stem cells began to increase! Science is too cool for school 🤓
It's obvious why anti-aging skincare products have begun to implement this extremely unique ingredient in their formulas. We are extremely happy to have it in a few of our products as well! You can find it in our organic Eye Cream and Wrinkle Cream, both of which can help improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles over time.
Apple stem cells are a powerful ingredient for keeping skin looking youthful and healthy. Thanks to their ability to protect human stem cells and help regenerate them over time, they should play a key component in ANY skincare routine. Apple stem cells can improve collagen production, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and protect from environmental stressors. By using an apple stem cell-based product, you can keep your skin looking its best for years to come! Catch us in the next blog (next week 😎).
