Dr. Gerny, you recently developed a stem cell cream. What effect do stem cells have on your skin?Stem cells are the parent cells. They can divide themselves indefinitely and differentiate themselves into different cells. All other cells emerge from them. The egg is the first stem cell in every person. It’s only recently that we have discovered that there are 2 different stem cells in skin: one in the epidermis and one in the dermis.
More than a dozen independent medical studies have proven that the 4 natural plant stem cells taken from apple, grape, rhododendron and the argan tree, which are present in my world-first luxury medical cosmetic line Cell Premium, protect, activate and regenerate our skin stem cells.
When you consider that while at age 20 our skin has 8% stem cells in our skin, by age 60 this has decreased to only 3%, and these are our only cell factories, it means that reducing stem cells entails a decline in the regenerative capacity of the skin.
Anti-aging has discovered a whole new dimension. For the first time, we can tackle skin aging at source. Plant stem cells represent a new era in skin care: depending on the genetic structure of the plant, there is also a corresponding potential within the plant stem cells.
The stem cells from a long-life apple variety, Utzweiler Spätlauber, bring protection and longevity, while Gamay grape cells carry protection from UV and light aging, rhododendron cells increase resilience and the stem cells of the argan tree activate and initially protect the skin stem cells of the dermis.
Since plant stem cells are too large to reach deep into the skin, a cocktail of debris and cell fluid is produced from the plant stem cells. The plant complex ensures that both skin stem cells and the stem cell cocktail can be bonded together.
Is it risky to use stem cell skincare?The only risk is of allergic reactions, if you are hypersensitive to the four plants: apple, grape, rhododendron or argan, but these plants cause allergic reactions only in extremely rare cases.
