What are stem cells?
Stem cells are present in our organism, with the capacity to transform into any other cell according to the body’s needs.
These are the cells from which other cells with more specialized functions are generated. These produce red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets; essential for life.
Types of stem cells
- Embryonic. They are obtained from embryos or the umbilical cord after birth. They can divide into more cells or become any other cell in the body.
- Adults. They occur in the body after birth. Its function is to repair tissues when they are damaged. As with other cells, aging reduces the number of stem cells and also their effectiveness. They have a lower reproductive capacity than embryonic ones.
Fat tissue is the largest reservoir of stem cells in the body.
What are they used for?
There are different uses for stem cells. In medicine, they are used for transplantation and regenerative medicine.
In our case, in cosmetics, we use biotechnological plant stem cells of marine origin in the Mesoactives Age Solution 360 facial line for skin regeneration.
Its main function is the dermo-epidermal junction achieving an increase in the production of elastin, collagen and enhancing epidermal renewal.
