When GoodJanes founder Janelle Friedman began her journey to create the most natural, effective, cruelty-free and luxurious vegan skincare on the planet, she discovered the natural anti-aging power packed in plant stem cells. This discovery led her to procure a powerful collection of plant stem cells to infuse into skincare products. The Alpine Rose Plant Stem Cells in Best Face Oil, Say Goodnight Cleansing Balm and Full of Grit Oatmeal Body Scrub are the kiss from a rose your skin needs. Want more proof?
Alpine Rose Stem Cells – Found high in the Swiss Alps, these plant stem cells improve cell vitality and natural skin barrier with antioxidants that protect from signs of aging and promote healthy skin.
- Alpine Rose grows and thrives in an incredibly harsh environment that includes high-altitude dryness and freezing temperatures. Its resilience and regenerative characteristics help the rose to thrive despite enduring environmental stress.
- These plant stem cells have amazing regenerative qualities, enabling the plant to produce new stem cells continuously throughout its lifetime, while having the potential to live up to 100 years.
- The Alpine Rose also contains high amounts of polyphenolic compounds, which protect the plant against radicals as well as viruses and bacteria, taxifolin, antioxidants, and antiviral compounds.
- The Alpine Rose adapts to its environment by developing scales on its leaves to limit water loss, as well as having the ability to synthesize protective proteins which behave like tiny sponges, retaining water around the cell membrane.
Dr. Anna Cabeca shares, "The Alpine Rose stem cells are able to survive the frost and dehydrating conditions of dry air and cold. And this protection appears to support more than the plant itself, as studies have shown the same stem cells can offer protection to human skin as well.
In vitro and in vivo studies (3) the stem cells were shown to reduce the formation of carbonylated proteins. These proteins are a marker of skin aging. The stem cells were also shown to protect the skin against herpes occurrence due to their strong antiviral effect.
Oxidative stress was measured in vivo by examining the carbonyl protein content in human skin after exposure to UVA radiation. Compared to the placebo-treated skin samples the carbonyl protein content was significantly reduced in the skin sites treated with the Alpine Rose stem cells.
The Alpine Rose stem cells protected against damage induced by oxidative stress as well as defending against pathogens! And in another study (4) Alpine Rose stem cells were again shown to have a protective effect on human skin as they did within the plant. Our skin’s epidermal cells are responsible for skin cell replenishment, and this process slows down as we age, taking 50% longer for replenishment to occur. This study demonstrated that one key measure of renewal, the ability for the cells to form colonies, increased as much as 75% when penetrated with a 0.15% Alpine Rose stem cell extract. Stem cells were better able to counter environmental stress and retain skin cell vibrancy."
