Beauty Buzzwords: Grape Stem Cells
Modern extraction methods have allowed the use of plant stem cells in cosmetics to slow skin aging. The research behind plant stem cells indicates that overall they strengthen and protect skin cells.
Three Ships Radiance Grape Stem Cell + Squalane Day Cream aims to improve the look of the skin by stimulating and regenerating the natural physiological processes that improve the skin condition and protect it from factors that cause aging. The grape cell extract used in the Radiance Day Cream has been shown to have great wrinkle reduction capabilities, by stimulating skin cells to make collagen, which in turn stimulate skin regeneration.
What Is It?
Stem cells are found within both plants and animals and are used in-vitro for cell proliferation and differentiation into specialized cells. They also play a role in the growth and repair of damaged tissue. The grape used in the Radiance Day Dream is the Gamay Teinturier Freaux grape. This dark purple grape has red flesh attributed to its extremely high anthocyanin content. Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants that break down the free radicals on our skin that cause photo-aging.
What Are The Benefits?
Overall the benefit of the grape stem cells is that they provide a powerful antioxidant(anthocyanins) that protects the skin cells from UV stress by increasing the skin’s UV tolerance and protecting the skin from environmental stressors. By slowing down the effects of UV radiation, grape stem cells help reduce photo-ageing, which is known to lead to wrinkles.
Who Should Be Using It?
Anyone can use this ingredient, and it’s great for all skin types! Because this ingredient helps protect the skin from UV radiation, using it in the morning gives your skin extra protection on top of your sunscreen.
