STEM CELLS

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - SKIN SCIENCE -

Ex­pert Dr Jen­nifer Irvine, aes­thetic med­i­cal pro­fes­sional

Stem cells carry the en­tire DNA gene ex­pres­sion of a plant and can morph or dif­fer­en­ti­ate into other cell types to as­sist the re­gen­er­a­tion process. This abil­ity makes them in­valu­able in many ways for cos­metic ap­pli­ca­tions, in­clud­ing pro­tec­tion against photo dam­age; en­er­gis­ing tired skin; hav­ing anti-acne and light­en­ing prop­er­ties for pig­mented skin; be­ing sooth­ing and an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory and pro­mot­ing and pro­tect­ing col­la­gen and hyaluronic acid.
