Skin aging is a biological process that involves all layers of the skin. The problem with most common anti-aging beauty products is that they only treat the top layer of skin called the epidermis. Plant stem cell extracts can penetrate to the dermis, creating a longer-lasting effect on skin problems. 

Cel is a beauty product provider that is on the cutting edge of plant stem cell research. You can find Cel online at to view the full range of beauty products for skin and hair. Cel specializes in natural products that do not rely on damaging ingredients such as silicone, sulfates, and chemicals that can damage your skin and hair over time. 

Plants have had medicinal and beauty purposes from almost the dawn of time. It is somewhat surprising that it has taken this long for scientists to begin to study the applications of plant stem cells as an anti-aging beauty product. Given the promising results, research will be ongoing to identify all the ways that plant stem cell extracts can be for their anti-aging properties. 

The anti-aging properties of plant stem cell extracts

  • Plant stem cells are rich in antioxidants that help protect your skin from environmental aggressors, such as sun and pollution. Antioxidants help defeat free radicals, which can cause damage to the skin. Studies have shown that these cells exhibit a robust photophobic effect, meaning they protect against the damage caused by the sun. Face creams with plant stem cell extracts should not be used to replace sunscreen with at least an SPF rating of 50, but research shows that layering sun protection helps increase its effectiveness. 

  • Stem cell extracts can repair damage at the cellular level, promoting rejuvenation of the skin.

  • As we age, and the sun and other environmental factors take their toll, our skin starts to lose its elasticity. The loss of elasticity is what causes sagging, and some lines and wrinkles. The damage is caused by dying cells that cannot regenerate fast enough. Plant stem cell extracts can help stimulate the replenishment of human stem cells, helping skin to retain or regain elasticity, which reduces the signs of aging.

  • Plant stem cell extracts stimulate the proliferation of human stem cells. Human stem cells are unspecified cells that rush to replace specialized cells that are damaged or die off due to aging. Stimulating the replenishment of human stem cells serve to protect against many signs of aging such as dryness, sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and dulling of the skin.

  • Scientists cannot fully explain why stem cell extracts serve as a potent anti-inflammatory, helping to protect the skin from inflammatory processes. 

  • The extracts increase flexibility in the epidermis, as well as repair and heal the damage done to the epidermis through the natural aging process. 

  • These extracts can penetrate to the dermis to stimulate the production of stem cells at a layer that most beauty products can never reach. Wrinkles originate in the dermis, making it critically important to treat the skin at that level. 

  • Plant stem cells can activate the DNA repair of cells. Repairing cells at the DNA level protects them from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can occur whenever there is an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body and can lead to cell damage and even death. 

  • The extract can reduce pore size by up to fifty percent, making skin appear smoother with a matting effect. 

  • Extracts made of stem cells also serve to boost the production of collagen. The middle layer of skin, the dermis, is where collagen forms cells called fibroblasts. Fibroblasts play a role in the growth of new cells and in replacing dead skin skells. As the body ages, it produces less collagen, which leads to the structural decline of the skin, allowing wrinkles to form. 

  • Stem cells extracted from plants can significantly increase the longevity of human skin cells, meaning that less regeneration is necessary to keep skin looking younger. 

  • The ability to help reduce acne breakouts by acting as a potent antimicrobial agent is a relatively new discovery in the study of stem cell extracts. 

Various plants have different mechanisms of action and understanding which plants serve what purpose in beauty products is on ongoing science. Some plants, such as grape seed, have been studied for over a century for their anti-aging properties. However, given the close to nine million species of identified plants on our planet, there are many more plants with the unknown potential to help combat aging skin. Given the promising results attained in a relatively short time, the science of plant stem cells for beauty products will snowball.
