How Do Plant Stem Cells Work In Skincare Products?

January 14, 2021 | BY R. Motzell

What Are Plant Stem Cells?

Stem cells are found in both plants and animals, and these cells play a key role in the lives of big and small living organisms. 

In plants, stem cells often serve the purpose of providing protection from damage, coming into play when a plant’s environment has exposed it to some form of harm. Many plants are extremely delicate and fragile, and the ability to dedicate “undifferentiated” cells – cells which have not yet taken on a specific role in a plant’s system – to recovering from harm can be essential to survival.

Stem cells in a plant initially serve no specific role within the cellular structure of the plant – this means they can go on to become any of a variety of different types of cells. 

When a plant’s cellular structure is damaged, stem cells can come to the rescue by helping the plant heal, with the initially undifferentiated cells going on to help heal and restore the plant.

In a sense, stem cells are something of a biological miracle. They’re a testament to the incredible ability of an organism, no matter how small, to adapt and recover in the face of trials and danger. Every living thing on earth is built to survive, and plants are no exception. 

In plants, stem cells can allow a plant to adapt when environmental dangers have left it damaged and vulnerable. 

However, it’s important to remember that stem cells do not make organisms impervious to harm, nor do they somehow hold the secret to immortality (that we know of). Research into stem cells is continuing to produce further evidence of the potential uses for the cells in medicine and beyond. The significance of these unique cells shouldn’t be underestimated – nor should their benefits for your skin

Plant Stem Cells Versus Human Stem Cells: What’s the Difference?

As you now know, stem cells – undifferentiated cells that can serve numerous purposes in the body of a living organism – are found in humans, animals, and plants alike. 

However, plant stem cells stand out for a few reasons that can be helpful in understanding the benefits of these cells for your skin.

A plant’s stem cells are noticeably different from the stem cells found in animals and mammals, including the stem cells in the human body. 

One of the main reasons why plant stem cells are unique is because of the stability of a plant’s environment compared to that of a person. 

Throughout the life of a human being, there are plenty of opportunities for healthy cells to become damaged and weakened. Exposure to environmental hazards, getting sick, and living an overall unhealthy life can weaken the cells in the human body in noticeable ways.

Because humans are so susceptible to harm from many factors that are hard to avoid, you can imagine how different a plant’s stem cells can be from those found in the human body. With far fewer environmental factors to damage a plant’s healthy stem cells, the cellular structure of a plant can stay healthy and function optimally for the plant’s entire lifespan.

In some cases, plants are still exposed to harmful factors in their environments that can leave them sick and weaken them on a biological level. However, plants are still not threatened by the same types of dangers and health hazards that most humans are. 

A human has far more opportunities to get hurt, get sick, and take in unhealthy and potentially toxic substances that can weaken the cells in their bodies. Without these risks, a plant’s stem cells can remain far healthier.

Healthier stem cells means higher levels of antioxidants. Antioxidants play a key role in the cellular structure of every living organism. These molecules help to prevent the harmful effects of environmental risks to an organism’s health. Without enough antioxidants, the cells in any living thing become more vulnerable to weakness, sickness, and damage. A plant’s stem cells, being far less affected by a plant’s environment than a human’s stem cells would be, are typically much higher in antioxidants.

Why Antioxidants Matter For Your Skin

Taking good care of your skin means supplying it with the nutrients it needs to stay looking youthful and refreshed.

 Antioxidants, the very important molecules that are found in high quantities within plant stem cells, are some of the most essential nutrients you can give to your skin. Natural sources of antioxidants, including plant stem cells, can leave you with skin that is brighter, softer, and more even in tone.

If you are dealing with wrinkles, lines, blemishes, dark spots, acne, or any other type of skin issue, you can most definitely benefit from using antioxidants to take care of your skin! These nutrients’ benefits are universal, and they can have a big positive impact on anyone’s skin. 

Whether your concerns are primarily related to aging, acne, sun damage, or anything else, antioxidants are definitely worth including in your beauty routine. 

Antioxidants can be found in a wide variety of naturally-derived sources. From natural oils like coconut, argan, jojoba, and rosehip oil to plants like green tea, turmeric, sea kelp, and more, antioxidants are found in abundance in the cells of healthy, thriving living organisms. 

Plant stem cells are one of the best sources of antioxidants to use on your skin, and they can be even more beneficial when combined with other natural sources of antioxidants.

  • Apply any serums. These lightweight products are best used before you put on any type of gel, cream, lotion, or sunscreen.
