1. What is Apple Stem Cell?
The apple stem cell extract comes from the stem cells of the rare Swiss Uttwiler Spätlauber Apple.
It has been hailed as one of the world’s most exciting breakthroughs in the treatment and restoration of ageing and damaged skin.
Following many years of extensive scientific research into the efficacy of the fruit’s stem cell extract on skin and hair, Swiss company Mibelle Biochemistry launched it in 2008 under the name PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica.
2. What Does It Do?
The Apple Stem Cell Extract works by stimulating a person’s own skin stem cells, effectively activating and restoring the skin’s ability to regenerate and protect itself from within.
Prior to the onset of ageing, this is a process which skin cells can manage unaided. But as skin ages, the number of skin stem cells is depleted, reducing its ability to combat damage, resulting in more wrinkles and a general loss of youthful condition.
Mibelle Biochemistry used the stem cell extract in a clinical trial, using 20 subjects who applied a cream containing Uttwiler Spätlauber extract to the crows’ feet area under their eyes. At the end of the four-week trial, wrinkle depth was reduced by an average of 15 per cent.
It is well accepted that premature ageing and a loss of skin condition is exacerbated by exposure to damaging UV rays. Human skin trials of the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple stem cells have revealed that the extract also guards against UV radiation.
3. Who Is Already Using It?
The extract is already creating headlines around the world, particularly in the US, where First Lady Michelle Obama is said to be big fan. There are likely to be plenty more headlines to come in the future, following the discovery that the extract also has the ability to delay the ageing of hair follicles – providing exciting possibilities in the treatment of hair loss and degeneration.
