Plant Stem Cells in Skin Care Products
Human and animal stem cells are the building blocks for cellular repair and regeneration in the person’s or animal’s body. Plant stem cells are also building blocks for repair and regeneration in the plant. Plants are some of the oldest organisms on earth. Plant stem cells used in skin care products help to stimulate collagen and improve skin elasticity.
Plant stem cells are found in the tissue of plants in the undifferentiated cells where growth occurs. These cells assist to keep the plant growing. These cells are able to continually divide. They are self-renewing, regenerative and are the place where the plant’s vitality begins. Plant stem cells do not go through an aging process and they have the ability to grow into the plants tissues, organs and cells.
Since plants are stationary and cannot move, they must protect themselves from environmental strains. The plant preserves its life in its stem cells.
