How much do you know about stem cells? From a skincare lens, stem cells have come a long way. Dermatologists have found a means to infuse this marvel ingredient into your skincare formulas. But what good does stem cell skincare do?
Introstem is here to tell you all about this wonderful realm of skincare and what you can expect from it. Our brand harnesses the power of stem cell extracts and other premium ingredients in the skincare world to help you achieve your skincare goals!
Let’s take a closer look at the world of stem cell skincare and what it can do for your skin.
Stem Cells 101
What are stem cells? They are unique cells present in humans, animals, and plants that have the ability to divide at a fast pace. They’re basically raw materials that generate other specialized cells with different functionalities. They also adapt to their surrounding environment and develop into other cell types accordingly. They can repair and replace damaged tissues as well.
The same can be expected of plant stem cells. They’re all composed of proteins and amino acids, which send signals to other cells to rejuvenate.
There has been an increased interest in stem cells in the field of medicine because of the following reasons:
- They help scientists understand how different diseases occur.
- They have exceptional regenerative and repairing capabilities that can help people overcome serious injuries.
- Some types of stem cells can be used to study the effects of drugs for efficacy and safety concerns.
What About Stem Cell Skincare?
Do you know why your skin looks healthier and fresher when you’re young? It’s because around that age, there is an abundance of active stem cells in your body that work to renew and repair your skin. But as we grow older, these numbers start to deplete, eventually leading to mature skin characterized by thinness, wrinkles, and loss of firmness.
However, stem cell skincare cannot make your stem cells work the way they used to or increase their numbers. This is because a lot of care and specialized conditions need to be observed to keep the stem cells alive.
So, the incorporation of stem cells in skincare isn’t as straightforward as adding cells into formulas. You’re not actually putting living stem cells on your face because that’s not how they work.
Most skincare formulas actually make use of plant stem cell extracts that have a rich profile of peptides, amino acids, and polyphenols that can help ease the look of aging on your skin. Topical application of stem cell extracts derived from plants can result in a decreased visibility of fine lines, wrinkles, roughness, and uneven skin tone.
The best thing about plant stem cell extracts is that there is no need for special conditions to maintain them, like with human and animal stem cells. They are easily incorporated into topical formulas to give you outstanding results!
The Benefits of Using Plant Stem Cell Skincare
Studies have shown that there are a lot of benefits to using plant stem cell extracts in skincare formulas. Grapes, lilacs, and Swiss apples, in particular, have exhibited a lot of promise when it comes to reducing the visible signs of inflammation and oxidative stress.
Here is what you can expect from stem cells in skincare:
- They help make your skin appear plump and healthy.
- These extracts have bioactive polyphenols that can balance the look of your skin tone and brighten its appearance.
- Stem cells can help to prevent moisture from escaping and keep your skin hydrated.
- They can reduce the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and large pores because of their high amino acid content.
- They have shown exceptional properties when it comes to clearing up the complexion and reducing the appearance of breakouts

Breaking Down Our Grape Stem Cell Extract
Grape stem cell extract is rich in phenolic compounds and peptides, reserving an important place for itself in the skincare world. It is true that these stem cells are not alive in skincare formulas. However, research has shown that just their topical application can give you the benefits you need to achieve your skincare goals.
Their constituents are ideal for enhancing the look and feel of your skin in many ways. This particular stem cell extract rejuvenates the complexion. It does this by reducing the appearance of UV damage and aging on your skin. As a result, the skin looks younger and brighter.
Here are the compounds responsible for these effects:
Grape stem cell extract has an abundant profile of phenolic compounds, which play a vital role in easing the visible signs of inflammation and oxidative stress on the skin. They have qualities that can help reduce the look of damage caused by prolonged exposure to UV rays.
The most abundant phenolic acids present in grape stem cells include caftaric and gallic acids. These two acids are highly beneficial for keeping the skin’s complexion balanced and reducing the appearance of dark spots. They help ease the visible signs of inflamed, irritated skin. Consequently, they make your skin appear brighter and more youthful.
Flavonoids are another special class of phenolic compounds. Their primary purpose is to help shield plants from the adverse effects of environmental stress. In skincare, these compounds serve a similar purpose. They help keep your skin feeling protected from the effects of oxidative stress and help maintain its appearance.
Peptides are short chains of two or more amino acids. They have been used in dermatology since the late 80s, when the first copper peptides were added to skincare formulas.
Since then, peptides have served as an integral part of the skincare world because of their ability to decrease the visible signs of aging on your skin, including wrinkles, fine lines, sag, and pigmentation. Peptides are wonderful for making your skin look plump and firm.
In fact, Introstem has a wonderful, multi-peptide skincare product you can add to your daily routine. Our ThermoStem Serum features a breakthrough infusion of grape stem cells, peptides, and sodium hyaluronate to diminish the look of facial lines and surface-level imperfections on your skin.
It incorporates palmitoyl tripeptide-1, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, and acetyl hexapeptide-8, which play a key role in reducing the appearance of wrinkles and making your skin appear firm. Sodium hyaluronate will add hydration to your skin and keep it looking fresh. Botanical extracts, like grape stem cells, apple, and hawthorn berries, reduce the visible signs of premature aging and give you brighter-looking skin!
