Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Fruit Cell Culture Extract
Powerful anitioxidants that protect skin from UV stress and maintains the cell characteristics of epidermal stem cells.
Vitis Vinefera (Grape) Fruit Extract protects and maintains the activity of epidermal stem cells. This rare red-flesh grape stem cell is tolerant to strong UV radiation and helps the skin stem cells maintain their stem cell characteristics and protect the skin stem cells against UV stress. UV radiation is responsible for 80% of skin aging. This is due to toxins and free radicals being generated by UV in the skin. The Grape Fruit extract delays senescence of essential cells and fights photoaging. We carefully choose our grape culture because it has red flesh and juice due to a high anthocyanin content. Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants and free radical scavengers. The technique of extracting the fruit cells involves wounding part of the plant to induce the formation of callus cells. This wound-healing tissue consists of dedifferentiated cells that are stem cells. The Callus cells are harvested and cultivated in suspension and a bioreactor system enables large-scale production. To obtain the active ingredient, the stem cells are harvested and homogenized with phospholipids to encapsulate and stabilize oil and water-soluble components into liposomes. The resulting extract is carefully sprayed onto a powder based on isomalt. These grape stem cells contain special epigenetic factors and metabolites that are able to protect human skin stem cells against UV radiation.
