Beauty Dictionary: Stem Cells

Posted by

The ingredient: Stem cells

Also known as: Stem-cell technology

Found in: Anti-aging, anti-wrinkle products

Where it comes from: The stem cells found in beauty products come plant cells that are harvested in the laboratory. They're usually diluted before they're added into a formula.

What it does: Stem cells are a type of cell that can turn into different types of tissue (think: the wild card in a poker game). Scientists believe that these cells may stimulate the skin to replicate itself, creating a fresh, youthful layer. Because the cells in lotions, creams, and serums aren't alive or active, they aren't associated with any side effects.
