Experience a New Dimension in Skin Care
The RG-Cell is the latest, breakthrough, anti-aging, skin care cosmaceutical to hit the market. It features a unique proprietary blend of stem cell activators programmed to protect your skin and visibly fight aging at the cellular level.
Scientists have shown that reactivating your dormant stem cells is the most effective process for skin rejuvenation and regeneration. This process stimulates fibroblast production of collagen, increasing skin firmness and elasticity, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother, silkier, vibrant and younger looking skin.
Skin Stem Cells
What are stem cells?
The Mayo Clinic defines Stem cells are the body’s “raw materials”: They are cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated. Under the right conditions in the body or in a laboratory, 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, skin cells or heart muscle or bone. Stem cells are unique — no other cell in the body has the natural ability to generate new cell types.
They can divide (through mitosis where they split into 2 separate but identical sets with 2 separate nuclei) or differentiate into diverse and specific cell types and can self-renew to produce more stem cells. In mammals, there are two broad types of stem cells
- Embryonic stem cells, which are isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocysts (a structure formed in the early development of vertebrates).
- Adult stem cells, which are found in various tissues. In adult organisms, stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing adult tissues. In a developing embryo, stem cells can differentiate into all the specialized cells (these are called pluripotent cells), but also maintain the normal turnover of regenerative organs, such as blood, skin, or intestinal tissues. Adult stem cells can replicate indefinitely.
Why is activating dormant stem cells important for good skin care?
Many specialized cells, such as in the skin, or blood, have a lifespan of only a few days. For these tissues to function, a steady replenishment of specialized cells is indispensable.
First, they are able to differentiate into all the different cell types that make up their respective tissue – a property called pluripotency.
Second, they need to renew themselves in order to be able to supply new specialized tissue cells throughout life.
Skin is an essential tissue in our bodies. It is our body’s largest organ. Our skin protects us from infection, irritation and dehydration, and allows us to feel many different things, such as pressure, stress or heat. Our skin has to be constantly renewed throughout our lives and relies on a whole host of different stem cells to keep it in good shape.
Stem cells (SCs) residing in the epidermis and hair follicle ensure the maintenance of adult skin homeostasis and hair regeneration, but they also participate in the repair of the epidermis after injuries.
To explain this in simple terms: Everyday our skin has to survive through demanding wear and tear. For example, it is exposed to chemicals like soap and to physical stresses such as sun damage, friction with clothing or exposure to sunlight. Our skin protects us from water loss, temperature change, radiation, trauma, and infections, and allows us to perceive our environment through tactile sense. The epidermis and other skin layers need to be renewed constantly to keep your skin in good condition. What’s more, if you cut or damage your skin, it has to be able to repair itself efficiently to keep doing its job – primarily protecting our body from the outside world.
Skin stem cells make all of this possible. They are responsible for constant renewal (regeneration) of your skin, and for healing wounds.
