Not all stem cells are created equal. They vary widely in origin, potency, cost, clinical and therapeutic value. There are many differences, and they are very important points. Surely you’ve heard the saying, “that’s the difference between an apple and an orange.” Here we are talking about the difference between apple and man. Really, the two have nothing in common.
However, apple-based skin care products (they are obtained from the Uttwiler Spatlauber apple tree, prized because it lives to age) are called stem cell skin care. It’s a clever use of words. In fact, “stem cells” are so called because they are extracted from the stem of the leaf. Other plant stem cell sources include herbs.
Lifeline Neck Firming Complex, ProPlus Restoring Night Moisturizing Complex and Eye Firming Complex are based on growth factors derived from human non-embryonic stem cells derived from several The nation’s leading IVF clinic. That’s a big difference—a research clinic or an apple orchard. But it is only part of the difference.
Before they can have any benefit to the skin, these fragile growth factors extracted from human stem cells must be preserved and protected. They are very fragile and easily damaged. So Lifeline encapsulates the growth factors in a lipid nanosphere, similar to how many time-released pharmaceutical ingredients are manufactured. These microspheres are oil-loving (oil-loving) that protect and preserve the hydrophilic (water-loving) ingredients of the skin care cream. This technology isn’t unique to Lifeline — it’s also used in pharmaceutical products and nutritional supplements. After the cream is applied to the skin, the microspheres penetrate the epidermis and then release growth factors to the skin.
At that point, growth factors can begin to communicate directly with skin cells and act as a messenger to signal the skin to produce more collagen and elastin. It’s the body’s natural mechanism to repair the aging process of skin — fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity.
Do you remember the tagline of Federal Express, “when it’s complete, the positive must be there.” It not only transports important growth factors, but actually delivers them. Then — and only then — they can start going to work.
