Age Management Series #4 – Gardenia Stem Cells for Collagen Restoration

Gardenia Jasminoides Stem Cells for Unrivaled Protection and Restoration of the Skin’s Collagen System

Gardenia Stem Cells for LPAR Skin CareAs we discussed in the previous blog in this series, we’ve recently brought new stem cell technology, peptides and other rich ingredients to our Age Management skin care line. You can look forward to new retail products (Stem Cell Replenishing Mask, Stem Cell Eye Therapy) by June 2012. In this installment we will focus on Gardenia Jasminoides Stem Cells, and the importance of collagen for anti-aging.

The Gardenia is a highly fragrant and beautiful flowering plant that has specific substances involved in defensive responses to environmental, physical and biological stress. By utilizing, a proprietary, highly controlled process by IRB called HTN™ green technology, the stimulation and production of plant stem cells with considerable biological properties can be achieved for use in anti-aging products that positively affect the skin’s collagen system.

Collagen is the main structural support of the cells, giving support and firmness to the skin. It undergoes continuous turnover and new collagen is produced and recycled throughout our lives.

As aging occurs, collagen degradation tends to speed up causing weakening and wrinkling of the skin. Furthermore, a number of external factors such as UV exposure, smoking, chlorinated water, free radicals and inflammation contribute to collagen breakdown by activating enzymes responsible for the degradation of the main components of the extracellular matrix, an important part of our connective tissues that support firmness. The result is a loss of elasticity and tone and other classic signs of aging.

Effects of Gardenia stem cell for LPAR Skin CareSo what special or unique properties do Gardenia Stem Cells have for skin’s collagen system? The answer provides some exciting news for age management.

The Gardenia Jasminoides Stems G™ utilized in our Stem Cell Replenishing Mask have three very important and complementary roles:

  • Stimulation of new collagen synthesis
  • Reduce collagen degradation from environmental stress (UV skin damage, aging, etc.)
  • Inhibiting collagenase synthesis (enzymes that break the peptide bonds in collagen)

Since Gardenia Jasminoides stem cells stimulate the synthesis of new collagen, they restore its unavoidable loss associated with aging while strongly inhibiting collagenase. This process limits collagen degradation, prevents skin damage and loss of firmness. The specific anti-aging benefits for LPAR Skin Care products are:

  • Prevention of collagen loss in aged or prematurely aged skin – over 30s
  • Restoring the balance of collagen turnover in aging skin – over 40s
  • Provides deep replenishing and restructuring treatments

The fifth blog in the Age Management Series features the Alp Rose, another stem cell ingredient in our Stem Cell Eye Therapy, coming in June: New Stem Cells Added to LPAR Skin Care Line: PhytoCellTech™ Alpine Rose – Charges Skin Stem Cell Integrity and Resistance to Aging
