This is a revolutionary technology designed to protect human skin stem cells with the help of stem cells from a rare Swiss Apple.
In some recent clinical trials conducted by a company who discovered a group of Swiss Apple emulsions, showed that 100% of the participants saw a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles after using a solution containing just 2% of the emulsion
According to the Bible, Adam bit into an apple (coaxed on by us femme fatales) and deprived Earth of Heaven…was he attracted by the delicious taste or did he already know of the amazing youth-boosting properties of this fruit?
These emulsions are created , containing tiny bubbles made out of the same material as in cell membranes, are based on the stem cells of a rare Swiss apple called Uttwiler Spätlauber that derives from a seedling planted in the middle of the18th century. Uttwiler Spätlauber is an endangered apple variety that is well-known for its ability to be stored for long periods without shrivelling and thus its longevity potential. The apples are rich in phytonutrients, proteins and long-living cells.
A novel technology has now been developed enabling the cultivation of rare and endangered species like Uttwiler Spätlauber. Thanks to this technology, plant stem cells can be obtained and incorporated into skin care products to enhance the longevity of skin cells. Not only does it protect the skin’s own stem cells but has been shown to have excellent age-delaying and anti-wrinkle properties, and is currently one of the most pioneering and exciting ingredients in skin care.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND STEM CELLS
Longevity is related to specific cells called stem cells which have a unique growth characteristic. These cells can make identical copies of themselves as well as differentiate (in other words, split) to become separate, specialised cells. Two basic types of stem cells are present in the human body:
Embryonic stem cells found in blastocysts (structures found in the human pre-embryonic stage) can grow and differentiate into one of the more than 220 different cell types which make up the human body;
Adult stem cells located in some adult tissues can only differentiate into their own or related cell types. These cells act as a repair system for the body but also maintain the normal turnover of regenerative organs such as blood, skin or intestinal tissues.
Research on Stem Cells and Applications
Currently in medicine, adult stem cells are already used particularly in transplant medicine to treat leukemia and severe burns. In the cosmetic field, scientists are focusing their research on adult stem cells located in the skin. They are studying the potential of this type of cells, their functioning and aging. This research is helping us understand how to protect skin stem cells.
Stem Cells in the Human Skin
In the human skin, two types of adult stem cells have been identified:
Epidermal or skin stem cells replenish and maintain the balance of cells within the skin tissue and regenerate tissue damages during injury. But with age, the number of skin stem cells decreases and their ability to repair the skin becomes less efficient.
Plant Stem Cells to Protect Skin Stem Cells
In contrast to human, plant cells are totipotent, meaning that every cell has the ability to regenerate new organs (leaves, flower, seed…) or even the whole plant. Besides, all plant cells can differentiate and become a stem cell. All stem cells, independently of their origin (plant, animal or human) contain specific epigenetic factors whose function is to maintain the self-renewal capacity of stem cells.
WHAT DO SWISS APPLE STEM CELLS DO?
AND THEIR ANTI-WRINKLE EFFECT ON CROWS FEET
The anti-wrinkle effect of the Swiss Apple stem cell extract was evaluated in a study with 20 volunteers aged from 37 to 64. An emulsion containing 2 % of the Swiss Apple stem cell extract was applied twice daily for 28 days to the crow’s feet. Wrinkle depth was determined by means of PRIMOS (phase-shifting rapid in vivo measurement of skin). Results showed a significant and visible decrease in wrinkle depth for 100 % of the subjects.
DEPTH OF WRINKLES USING 2.5% APPLE STEM CELL EMULSION
AFTER 28 DAYS (2.5% APPLE STEM CELL EMULSION) SAW A REDUCTION OF WRINKE DEPTH OF 15%
AGE -DELAYING EFFECT ON HAIR FOLLICLES OF APPLE STEM CELLS
Hair follicles are mini organs that represent a natural combination of epidermal and melanocyte (cells in the bottom layer of the skin) stem cells. The follicles can be maintained in a growth medium where they elongate until about day 14. Then the follicle cells gradually become senescent or undergo apoptosis – effectively they deteriorate and start to die – which is caused by the lack of blood circulation.
Isolated hair follicles represent a good test model to analyse actives ingredients.
MAINTENANCE OF STEM CELL GROWTH
An in vitro test was conducted on blood stem cells with a Swiss Apple stem cell extract. The influence of Swiss Apple stem cell extract on blood stem cell growth was evaluated by counting the cell number after incubation. Results showed that the Swiss Apple stem cell extract has a positive effect on stem cell growth thus maintaining the growth and the proliferative activity of stem cells.
Kyani Fleuresse: Plant Stem Cells
For hundreds of years, crops were cultivated not only for higher yields, but also for greater storability. Before the technology existed to preserve perishable foods, a desirable crop not only grew well in adverse conditions, but could also be kept fresh for long periods of time. 300 years ago, an apple called the Uttwiler Spätlauber was just such a crop. Originally cultivated in Switzerland, this apple had a reputation for staying fresh longer than any other variety.
At the time, science could not explain why this apple stayed fresh, and it was not until recently that scientists found that the secret of the apple’s resistance to decay and environmental damage was hidden in the cellular makeup of this little known variety. In the skin of the apple, naturally occurring botanicals protect the fruit from oxidative stress and inflammation brought on by exposure to UV rays, and also act to reverse the effects of photoaging.
The question then was could these naturally occurring botanicals also be used to help fight the effects of photoaging in people? By extracting the stem cells from the Swiss Apple, scientists have done just that. Fleuresse—a scientifically engineered line of skin care products—employs the attributes found in the stem cells of the Swiss Apple to hydrate and nourish your skin for a brighter, more youthful looking appearance.
