The research that led to the cosmetic formula of the 4ever Young line is based on the effects of a “co-operation” of substances produced for the same purpose in two different contexts: plant substances (meristematic cells, commonly known as “Plant Stem Cells” in English, totipotent cell tissue) and human substances (“human stem cells”).
A-A Staminal Effect makes the most of meristematic cells (“plant stem cells”) derived from Malus Domestica cells, an apple variety that keeps fresh for a long time after being harvested thanks to some important factors that slow down its senescence. The complex developed in the formula is targeted at countering photoaging damage, including the decrease in skin turnover: because of this problem new cells generate slowly and with more difficulty.
The characterising element of the active complex is called SH-OLIGOPEPTIDE-1, a small protein naturally expressed in human stem cells. The function of skin growth factor SH-OLIGOPEPTIDE-1 is to increase skin cell regeneration rate, as described by various researchers, and therefore can “reduce the senescence” of human epidermis
The protein contained in A-A Staminal Effect is not obtained directly from human stem cells; in turn, it is produced using biotechnology applied to prokaryotic bacterial cells and purified with proprietary chromatrography technology (purity > 95%).
