 Remember how fast a skinned knee healed when you were a kid? A 24-day illness was common. (Now you’re knocked out for a week or more, right?)

Why is this?

As we age, our bodies’ ability to fight off internal and external stresses decreases. This happens throughout the body, but it’s especially noticeable on the skin. Our skin cells have a limited life span. Skin cells decrease in number, skin tissue thins and the skin cells’ ability to regenerate declines. The end result is a loss of radiance and elasticity, entrenched pigmentation and wrinkles.

It’s the reason medical science is constantly looking for ways to slow down this process. One recent discovery is apple stem cells.

What are apple stem cells?

Apple stem cells are Malus Domestica cells that maintain and repair damaged tissue. They are harvested from rare apple trees called Uttwiler Spatlauber grown in the Swiss Alps.

Why haven’t I heard of these apples before?

We all know Fuji, Gala and Granny Smith, but few are familiar with Uttwiler Spatlauber. That’s because these apples are more bitter than sweet, thus making them not very popular for eating.

What is so special about these apples?

Scientists discovered this species of apple had usually resilient properties. When the apple skin was punctured, the skin would attempt to heal itself – much like human skin – rather than immediately brown. The apples showed great storability, too. Once picked, the apples lasted for months without shriveling. And they kept their aroma longer, too.

How do apple stem cells work on the skin?

In effect, apple stem cells protect human skin cells. The resilience and longevity of the apple stem cells assist your own stem cells to regenerate, thus slowing down wrinkle formation, loss of elasticity and other signs of aging.

Are stem cells controversial?

They can be when they come from a human source. The beauty of apple stem cells is that they are completely plant-based.

How can I use apple stem cells?

IYAC offers apple stem cells in three products:

1) IYAC Stem Cell Sleeping Mask

One of the clinic’s most popular products, the Stem Cell Sleeping Mask harnesses the power of apple stem cells through a luxurious translucent night mask. It also contains Vitamin C to brighten, Swiss garden cress to lighten, carnosine to energize and firm, and peptides to smoothen and minimize fine lines.

2) IYAC Nutrient Serum

This oil-free serum harnesses apple stem cells and peptides to hydrate, smooth and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Bonus: this all-in-one serum also triples as a neck and eye serum, too.

3) IYAC Nutrient C Cream

This light moisturizing cream leaves skin hydrated, supple and luminous. Apple stem cells regenerate the skin to restore radiance without weighing down the skin.
