PhytoCellTec™ nunatak®, the latest stem cell active based on stem cells which come from the high alpine plant Saponaria pumila. This flower survived the last ice age by growing on ice-free mountain peaks, which are known as Nunataks. The distinctive survival characteristics of Saponaria pumila are still preserved in their stem cells and these are now available for skin care. PhytoCellTec™ nunatak®, has shown to efficiently protect dermal stem cells against UV-induced stress and to also maintain their stem cell activity.
Epigenetics is not just a new cosmetic trend, it is an important mechanism that contributes to our appearance which can be influenced with the right ingredients.
