PhytoCellTec™ Solar Vitis –
Protects epidermal stem cells against UV damage

PhytoCellTec™ Solar Vitis is based on stem cells derived from a specific grape cultivar that has been obtained through our unique PhytoCellTec™ technology.
As we all know UV radiation is responsible for 80% of skin aging. Despite the use of sun protection filters, toxins and free radicals are generated by UV in the skin. This affects sensitive cells such as the epidermal stem cells which are essential and most valuable.
The activity of skin stem cells is the key factor in ensuring the vitality and regeneration capacity of the skin. PhytoCellTec™ Solar Vitis both protects and maintains the activity of epidermal stem cells - even in cases of stress induced by UV.
Using a novel Progenitor (Stem) Cell Targeting technology PhytoCellTec™ Solar Vitis was shown to:
• Help the skin stem cells to maintain their stem cell characteristics
• Protect the skin stem cells against UV Stress
