Stem cells are building blocks that play important roles in cellular renewal and regeneration, but they become less potent over time. Fortunately, fruits and plants are sources of "universal cells" that can increase the longevity of our skin's stem cells, renew dormant cells, repair damage, and regenerate healthy cells. They also defend against harmful ultraviolet, oxidative, and environmental stresses. Scientists from Mibelle Bio Chemistry have found that a novel extract derived from the stem cells of a rare apple tree cultivated for its extraordinary longevity shows tremendous ability to rejuvenate aging skin. By stimulating aging skin stem cells, this plant extract has been shown to lessen the appearance of unsightly wrinkles.
