How fruit stem cells are changing the skincare game

Advances in science are giving a whole new meaning to natural skincare and our quest for radiant, even-toned and age-defying skin.

Natural skin care companies have used plants and fruits as ingredients for many years but they’ve recently been able to up the ante, thanks to science.

Advances in technology mean scientists are now able to extract fruit stem cells – quite literally, cells from the plant – to be used in products for your skin.

Fruit stem cells explained

Similar to those in humans and animals, plant stem cells possess the unique ability to change into different types of cells and to “self-renew” by producing more stem cells.

It’s this regenerative role, as well as the fact that studies have found plant stem cells have stronger antioxidant properties than human cells, that has created a buzz in skincare.

One Polish study published in online journal Cosmetics described plant stem cells as showing “outstanding anti-aging properties, as they can, among other activities, stimulate fibroblasts to synthesise collagen, which, in turn, stimulates skin regeneration”.

Inspired by nature

Andalou Naturals is one brand combining science with beauty for better-looking skin.

The company uses fruit stem cells that are extracted and “wounded” to put them into a regenerative state before they are packaged inside a protective membrane, known as a liposome.

The liposomes are then blended with other key ingredients to deliver anti-aging properties, and a blast of antioxidants directly to skin, for visible results.

Dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles?

Andalou’s Age Defying range, featuring fruit stem cells cultivated from grapes, is fast gaining attention and with good reason.

Products in the range contain a powerful combo of ingredients that support the skin’s essential building blocks of collagen and elastin providing a rich dose of antioxidants to help fight signs of ageing and restore a dehydrated complexion.

Resveratrol, extracted from rich dark grapes, and Coenzyme Q10 help prevent the appearance of ageing skin while added goji glycopeptides, extracted from antioxidant-rich goji berries, help to promote a tighter looking complexion.

Some 84 per cent of Australian women who tried the Age Defying range saw a revitalised and youthful complexion in 28 days*.

And that’s not all…

Products in the Age Defying range are not only powered by advanced fruit stem cell science, they are also 98 per cent naturally derived and come with a vibrant fruity scent.

Meaning your skin will not only look refreshed and rejuvenated, it will smell great too!

Andalou Natural’s products are vegetarian with a large vegan offering, gluten-free, cruelty-free and never tested on animals.
