Stem-cell derived active ingredients:
Flaxosome XO (Flax): An innovative ingredient developed from Flax stem cell factors containing potent antioxidants and skin-mimetic lipids which hydrate and balance the skin to promote a healthy skin glow and help combat the signs of aging caused by oxidation. Flaxosome XO also helps to improve the production of proteins which help to induce collagen retention in the skin and help to reverse skin thinning which occurs as we age.
Hibisome XO (Roselle): Our proprietary Hibiscus stem cell extract is rich in fatty acids, flavonoids, and a potent family of antioxidants, Anthocyanins that help reverse the signs of aging which occur as a result of oxidative stress. Factors produced by Hibiscus stem cells also help to reduce the appearance of dark spots through antimelanogenic activity, helping to even skin tone.
Tulsisome XO (Tulsi): Our proprietary Tulsi stem cell extract is rich in free radical scavenging phenolic acids with potent antioxidant effects which can help reduce inflammation in the skin and support the dermal processes of rejuvenation. Tulsisome XO also helps reduce the damaging effects of chronic stress and inflammation (aka: Inflammaging) in the skin which can accelerate the appearance of aging in the skin.
Acacia Concinna Culture Callus Lysate (Shikakai): This extract of stem cell factors from Shikakai (known as the “Soap nut”), contains a high saponin1 content which allows for gentle cleansing of the skin and scalp, which can help to: better preserve the skin’s natural oil levels, reduce stress in the skin and reduce disruption of the microbiome which occurs during cleansing. These soothing effects are complemented by a naturally high content of antioxidants which can further help reduce stress on the skin and scalp.
Linum Usitatissmum and Hibiscus Sabdariffa Consortia Callus Culture Lysate: Derived from our patent pending technology, the Flax & Hibiscus stem cell media (“Consortia Media™”), delivers an optimized blend of stem cell factors (Consortia Factors™”) derived from Flax and Hibiscus which help the skin look renewed and rejuvenated. When tested in vitro this combination of factors worked as effectively as Human based stem cells in promoting keratinocyte proliferation and migration in a wound healing model. Suggesting potent youth restoring effects by helping to improve the production of new skin cells.
Ustilago Cynodontis [cell/culture] extract: A unique fungus isolated and fostered by our proprietary cellular cultivation pipeline. U. cynodontis produces natural antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and moisturizing compounds, that are vital for human skin. Nurtured [by/on] plants, U. cynodontis produces metabolites, such as mannosylerythritol lipids (MELs), a type of glycolipids that mimic ceramides found in the epidermis of human skin and protect it from dryness and microorganisms. Our U. cynodontis cell extract supports healthy skin, especially during aging when ceramide level is declined.
Note 1) Saponins are natural surfactants which cleanse the skin like soap.
Proprietary Plant and Herbal Extracts:
Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract (Indian gooseberry): Rich in vitamins (A, B, C, and E), as well as flavonoids (anthocyanins and Quercetin), it produces an antioxidant effect that helps fight inflammaging, the premature aging of the skin due to inflammation. It is scientifically shown to inhibit pigment accumulation and balance melanin deposition, resulting in radiant skin.
Melia Azadirachta Fruit Extract (Neem): Widely used in Eastern Medicine for its antibacterial properties, the Neem extracts rich in bioflavonoids, a potent family of antioxidants, help clear blemishes and balance skin tone.
Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha) Root Extract: Gaining mainstream popularity in recent years, Ashwagandha extracts have been shown to have high anti—inflammatory and stress reducing properties. Root extracts are also rich in free-radical scavengers which have antioxidant properties to prevent cell damage and promote cellular rejuvenation.
Murraya Koenigii (Indian Curry) Stem Extract: Commonly known as the Curry Tree, Curry leaves are rich in amino acids and beta carotene which help to prevent hair thinning and loss. The antioxidants in the curry leaf moisturizes the scalp and exfoliates dead hair follicles. While Vitamin B-6 promotes strong hair shafts and roots.
Piper Nigrum (Black Pepper) Fruit Extract: Components of piper nigrum have been reported to exhibit antinociceptive (pain relief), antioxidant and and-inflammatory properties. Terpenoids found in Black Pepper help to improve the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of other herbal extracts.
Nigella Sativa (Black Cumin) Seed Extract: Black Cumin seeds have been heralded since the times of the Ancient Egyptians and were even referred to as “Panacea” 2 by the Ancient Romans for its anecdotal ability to treat all illnesses. When applied to the skin, studies have shown Black Cumin benefits the skin through: anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-melanin, and antimicrobial activities. Water-based extracts of Black Cumin are rich in Thymoquinone, the main active compound found in Black Cumin Seeds, helping to even complexion and skin tone.
