Eco-sustainable plant stem cell technology: anti-aging regenerative action

Plant Stem Cells include large quantities of metabolites and essential proactive substances such as: amino acids, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. From these, it is possible to obtain novel dermocosmetic active ingredients.

In addition to proving safety, efficacy and the many benefits to the skin, the cultivation of plant stem cells incorporates valuable, eco-sustainable biotechnology, which seeks to minimize environmental impact.

How is it developed and what benefits does it represent?

A single sample of the plant is taken, so that endemic or difficult-to-synthesize plants can be accessed, without jeopardizing their extinction.

Plant tissue → Sterilized tissue sample → Induction of callus in a culture on solid medium (dedifferentiation) → Callogenesis → New cell line → Selection → Adjustment

Environmental benefits:

• The use of land is avoided and the use of water is reduced by 99%.
• No use of pesticides or heavy metals (carbon footprint is reduced)
• A procedure that respects the environment and biodiversity.
