Apple stem cells, a treasure!
You know the apple in fresh fruit, pie or compote version, but from your plate to your bathroom, the apple has become one of our best allies for a radiant complexion. Very rich in antioxidants, in particular polyphenols known for their anti-aging and moisturizing benefits, trace elements and vitamin E, in recent years it has revealed many hidden virtues
Stem cells are cells located in the deepest layer of the epidermis. We do not know how many they really are, but we know that we have very little of them, that they do not renew themselves and that their role is to manufacture the cells of our epidermis. They do not visibly differ from other cells in the basal layer, although they have a very special mission: the constant renewal of the epidermis by the formation of new keratinocytes, and the regeneration of damaged tissues. Because they are the only cells that can divide. While the epidermis of young skin regenerates fully in about four weeks, this process gets slower and slower with age.
On the one hand, the number of epidermal stem cells is decreasing and on the other hand, their effectiveness is reduced. As a result, the skin thins and wrinkles, the hydrolipidic film becomes thinner, which makes the skin drier and more fragile. Since no new epidermal stem cells are created during life, it’s all the more important to maintain the vitality and dividing capacity of these precious epidermal cells for as long as possible.
Apple stem cells protect epidermal stem cells
Stem cells therefore play an essential role because they have the ability to multiply and regenerate throughout the life of the body. The active principles of apple stem cells support the natural regeneration capacity of the skin and act in particular on the reinforcement of the protective barrier.
The apple has the effect of nourishing dry skin, restoring the intracellular matrix, revitalizing and protecting the skin. Quercetin acts as an anti-oxidative stress by stimulating the enzymes which defend the DNA of the cells and prolong their existence. But above all, the apple has an incredible power of cellular regeneration. It allows the skin to keep its cellular cohesion. Over time, the epidermis tends to lose its radiance and relax, but thanks to apple oligosides, the network is reconstituted and the skin texture is refined. Apple stem cells have real anti-aging effects that provide visible correction of the signs of time on the skin.
