Dermatologists have turned to stem cells to fight wrinkles and improve skin turnover and overall appearance. Yep, you heard right. Stem cells, the same ones used in innovative medical research to treat Alzheimer’s and certain types of cancer, are now being sold over the counter in the form of creams, serums and other skin care products. Except there’s one major difference here: These stems cells are usually derived from plants. However, they work similarly to human stem cells and may offer anti-aging benefits for your skin.

What stem cells are and how they work
Human stem cells are unique because of their ability to divide. In certain organs, they can even become specialized to repair and replace damaged tissues.

Both plant and human stem cells contain proteins and amino acids.
Why you’re seeing stem cells in your skin care products
As mentioned above, stem cells contain amino acids and peptides, which are skin care powerhouse ingredients for skin rejuvenation.

This could result in fewer lines and wrinkles, improved skin texture and tone, and younger, better-looking skin.

Most skin care products contain plant stem cells, and more specifically, stem cell extracts. These extracts are often rich in antioxidants and may provide growth factors to help renew and repair the skin.
