In a beauty market full of high-end creams and serums that claim to rejuvenate aging skin, the nascent field of stem cell therapy proves promising. Plant stem cells in skincare are among the latest breakthroughs, offering numerous benefits. The regenerative properties of plants has grabbed the interest of dermatology researchers and the cosmetic industry at large. Various studies have linked plant stem cells to helping plump and firm the appearance of skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots and large pores, and helping promote the look of even-toned skin. Let’s explore.

How Do Plant Stem Cells Work?

The plant stem cells in skin care products aren’t technically live stem cells, rather they are the extracts found inside them. These extracts are obtained through technology that involves many complex methods that ensure growth of plant cells, tissues, and organs in the environment with microbe-free nutrients. When applied topically, they can help with collagen synthesis, elasticity, skin strength and structure, and protect our epidermis. These stem cell extracts also have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

How Are Plant Stem Cells Cultivated?

Plant stem cells are usually created in labs with controlled conditions. The technology used allows synthesis of biologically active substances that exist in plants that are either not usually available in the natural environment or are difficult to obtain by chemical synthesis. Because plant stem cells are cultured in labs, there are no issues of harvesting and availability.

What Are The Benefits of Plant Stem Cells?

Plant stem cells have been linked to the following beauty benefits: 

  • Collagen synthesis 
  • Elasticity 
  • Plumping the appearance of skin 
  • Reducing the appearance of wrinkles 
  • Reducing the appearance of dark spots

What Does The Future of Plant Stem Cells Look Like?

As research looks into the future, we can expect to see plant stem cells implemented across the entire beauty industry. Due to the objectionable use of human or animal sources, all cosmetic research and development for new products is focused on biotechnology and plant cell culture technology. Although plant stem cells show a lot of promise, plant based cosmetics have their own disadvantages, such as difficulties in cell culture. New technologies are aiming to overcome this. Live cells are likely to be more advantageous, which raises the need for additional research in order to improve current cosmetics and skin care products.
