WHAT ARE STEM CELLS?
Stem cells are best described as undifferentiated cells, which have the potential to differentiate into specific cells with individual functions. For example, in the human body, stem cells have the potential to become muscle cells or other organ cells. As such, it has been recognised that stem cells have big potential in regenerative medicinal use.
Skin stem cells are found in the epidermal layer of the skin and are involved in skin growth and regeneration. Hence, the ageing process is often a result of ultraviolet radiation (UV) that affects the ability of skin stem cells to regenerate the skin. It is said that 80% of ageing is due to UV radiation. As such, Enbacci utilises stem cells derived from different fruits to produce high quality products.
GRAPE STEM CELLS
Enbacci has developed a unique skincare range (Vitis Vinifera Rejuvenating 3-Step System) utilising the technology of grape stem cells. The grape stem cells have been known to reduce the appearance of ageing due to exposure to environmental stresses.
The grape stem cells are extracted from a cultivated grape of the Gamay family (a purple-coloured grape variety most known for its use in the production of red wine). This particular variety of grape was selected, as they are very high in anthocyanin, which are powerful antioxidants and free radical scavengers.
APPLE STEM CELLS
The newest product to the Enbacci family sees the introduction of apple stem cells for cosmetic use. The apple stem cells are cultivated from the Uttwiler Spätlauber (a variety of Swiss Malus Domestica. The Uttwiler Spätlauber was famously known for its excellent storability and longevity, which can be attributed to their especially long-living tissue stem cells.
