Often, rare and nearly-extinct plants, classified as endangered species, contain especially valuable ingredients, but may not be harvested for use in skincare.
Now with the discovery of the stem cell cultivation technology, we are able to use scarce and endangered plants, using only a very small amount of the original plant. Stell cell cultivation technology allows us to use the potent stem cells of plants, whilst being sustainable and keeping them in their natural habitat.
How does the Stem Cell Cultivation Technology work?
We select a small piece of the plant and wound it, inducing callus formation from stem cells. In special laboratory conditions, these stem cells develop and cultivate, allowing us to use them in our skincare products without having to harvest the original plant.
What is so special about plant stem cells?
Every plant has stem cells, but unlike in humans cells, every plant cell has the potential to dedifferentiate to a stem cell and grow into an entirely new plant.
Due to this potential, we are able to successfully generate and cultivate plant stem cells, allowing us to use the rarest of plants without removing them from the wild.
Our Plant Stem Cells
Derived from a rare apple variety cultivated for its prolonged storability and moisture retention, Swiss apple stem cells offer exceptional anti-aging and revitalizing effects. They can promote tissue growth, help preserve skin longevity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Known for their use in fine red wines, the Piotaz family has grown Gamay grapes in its vineyard for generations. Gamay stem cells help protect against UV radiation, reducing free radicals, toxins, and the signs of photoaging, promoting UV tolerance for healthy-looking skin.
The Alpine rose thrives at high altitudes, perfectly adapted to combat cold, dehydration, and sun exposure. Despite extreme conditions, it blooms every spring more beautiful than ever. Alpine rose stem cells reinforce and stimulate the skin barrier, promoting elasticity and suppleness.
One of the oldest tree species in the world, argan is indigenous to Morocco’s arid southwest region. Argan stem cells help to deeply tighten, tone, and enhance skin density. They nourish the complexion by replacing lost moisture while reducing the appearance of aging.
The crocus is a resilient flowering plant and the universal emblem of youth. Crocus stem cells can release skin growth factors, promote collagen and elastin production, and refine skin texture. Their plumping and firming effects fill in wrinkles and provide instant results.
Highly protected and precious, the edelweiss flower is the symbol of Swiss mountain flora. Edelweiss stem cells can provide powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and free-radical scavenging benefits that support the complexion’s natural balance and help reduce skin sensitivity.
