Stem cell harvesting may sound like science fiction, but according to Australian biotechnology skincare brand Enbacci, it is the future of cosmeceuticals.
According to Yong-Li Zhou, the Founder of Enbacci, plant stem cells contain a concentration of antioxidants 1,000 greater than any other botanical extract. She also quotes “As human skin cells are under constant assault from free radicals, UV rays, environmental toxins, age, and poor nutrition, every time our skin cells turn over, they run the risk of damage and lethal DNA mutation.”
Capable of stimulating new stem cell activity in prematurely aged skin and reversing the effects of UV-induced cellular damage, stem cells harvested from a rare variety of swiss orchid apples, the Uttwiler Spätlauber, is purported to have the strongest anti-ageing evidence when used topically. Formulated in Enbacci’s pioneering Age Revitalising Eye Defence cream, this genus of apple supplies the skin with phytonutrients, such as quercetin and pectin, and provides cosmetic relief from dryness, sallowness, wrinkles, and fatigue. Rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, including a nourishing cocktail of amino acids, peptides, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, the stem cell infused eye cream improves skin cell communication and regeneration, boosts collagen production, and protects skin from future free radical assault. According to the International Journal of Applied Science, a mere 0.1% concentration of stem cells from the Uttwiler Spätlauber can proliferate a wealth of human stem cells by an astounding 80%, and reduce the appearance of wrinkle depth by 8% in as little as two weeks. As one of the few Australian brands pioneering the use of apple stem cells, the Age Revitalising Eye Defence cream is lightweight and fragrance-free, and performs exceptionally well when paired with other actives, including retinol, ascorbic acid, and AHAs.
This is not the first time I have written about Enbacci skincare range. The products are superb and I have found the eye defence to help moisturise my skin that has been unprotected in way too much sun. Manufactured in Australia, the Age Revitalising Eye Defence cream is available globally online, or via the brand’s flagship store in Prahran, Melbourne.
