Stem cells revolutionize skin care from NeoStrata, Dermaglow and The Body Shop!

Stem cells - so controversial yet extremely beneficial - you hear about them everywhere these days, with many differing opinions on the subject. What makes stem cells amazing is their ability to replenish themselves and thus play a central role in the replenishment of dying cells and in the repair and regeneration of skin tissue - which gives them all kinds of medical uses, and as it turns out, they also help in the fight against aging!

Don't worry though, these anti-aging products are controversy-free, all the stem cells here are from fruits or plants!

NeoStrata Anti-Aging Gel with Fruit Stem Cells - 30ml - $65 - not only delays the signs of aging, it corrects existing multiple signs of aging. With: PhytoCellTec - protects and stimulates skin stem cells so skin's aging is delayed and skin looks and behaves like younger skin; Matrixyl 3000 - reduces the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles through stimulation of collagen synthesis, improves the barrier function and reduces skin roughness; Retinol - fights the appearance of wrinkles and skin crepiness, reduce wrinkles and evens out skin tone and promotes smoother skin texture with more uniform colour and reduction of fine lines; Dermican - to firm and plump the skin as well as stimulate collagen synthesis; and Quintescine - a peptide with stonrg antioxidant properties that protects against DNA damage due to photo-aging and also helps fight glycation.

In a smooth, quick absorbing, oil-free gel with a light floral (which is weird, I was expecting it to smell fruity) scent. I expect oily and combination skins will especially enjoy the feel of it!

Dermaglow SynchronAge Cream - 50ml - $70 - contains anti-aging science in the form of apple stem cells that focus on the cell's master clock - which skin cells follow in order to replenish and renew themselves - eventually they become desynchronized and this slows down their renewal process and results in the premature aging of skin. Reprogram the clock and voila - the natural protection and repair properties of the skin cell are synchronized which boosts the skin's restorative action precisely when it is needed most! Look forward to an increase in skin vitality which results in the dramatic reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increased hydration and a more youthful look.

This creamy formula has almost no scent and comes in a clever pump - great for drier skin and those who don't like to stick their fingers in a jar!

with its rich concentration of minerals, trace elements, enzymes and vitamins - in a nourishing formula that has 98% of its ingredients derived from natural origins - 25% of those organic. It works by enhancing surface skin renewal, the skin’s natural process of replacing the uppermost dead cells with the new ones beneath. Silicone and paraben free.

A lovely light serum that smells botanical and is perfect for layering under a moisturizer if you tend to be dry or wear it on it's own if you prefer to go light.
