Stem cells are the body’s raw materials — cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated.

Under the right conditions in the body, stem cells divide to form more cells called daughter cells.

These daughter cells either become new stem cells (self-renewal) or become specialized cells (differentiation) with a more specific function, such as blood cells, brain cells, heart muscle cells or bone cells. No other cell in the body has the natural ability to generate new cell types.

Studies have confirmed that Stem Cells applied to the skin demonstrate remarkable alterations in the firmness, hydration and cell reproduction with a notable reduction in fine lines (aging).

Stem cells in the human body are considered rare, most notably, stem cells are found in the human fertilized embryo, and therefore, human stem cell research has triggered considerable ethical concerns.

Plant-based Stem Cells however, have proven highly effective on human tissue, without the obvious ethical questions.

Stem Cells are typically found in the buds of plants and trees and require considerable time, effort and expense to harvest.  However, almost the entire fruiting body of a mushroom is comprised of Stem Cells.  It does lack a good public relations image!

Skin Gemms utilizes Stem Cells extracted from Reishi and Shiitake mushrooms, renowned for their powerful health benefits, as well cells from the Argan tree and apple tree.  Argan is an extremely hardy tree that flourishes in desert conditions.

Most of the top cosmetics and skin care companies are using Stem Cells in their products and offering them at extraordinary prices!  They just avoid the word ‘mushroom’!
