Can plant stem cell skin care help your skin to defy the ageing process?

In this post we explain why we use this exciting beauty innovation in our Age Defy+ collection and help you to discover the best plant stem cell skin care products for your skin.

What are the benefits of plant stem cell skin care?

The extracts from plant stem cells are packed with antioxidant compounds including polyphenols, phenolic acids, flavonoids, triterpenes, carotenoids and peptides offering anti-ageing properties.

The benefits of plant stem cell technology in skin care include:

  • Intense skin hydration and prevention of water loss and dryness
  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles and dark spots
  • Skin regeneration and collagen synthesis
  • Skin vitality and a radiant complexion
  • A delay of the biological ageing of essential cells
  • A decrease skin sensitivity, redness and inflammation

Skin care that’s made using plant stem cell extracts is particularly beneficial for those aged 30+.


How are plant stem cells cultivated?

Plant stem cells are created within labs. This is a controlled setting which is free from environmental contaminants such as pesticides and pollutants, meaning the plant stem cell extracts are completely pure.   

This method of cultivation is very sustainable because resources such as water are used efficiently and the yield and quality are consistently high, resulting in less waste.


Is plant stem cell skin care safe?

Yes, our plant stem cell skin care is safe. The stem cell extracts we use contain highly useful benefits for the skin and act no differently on the skin than other plant extracts and oils. They are both vegan and cruelty free.

The plant stem cell extracts we use are very well tolerated by even very sensitive skin.


Which Green People products contain plant stem cell extracts?

Discovering plant stem cell extracts played a significant part in the development of our founder’s signature Age Defy+ collection.

Charlotte, creator of the Age Defy+ range, says:

“My greatest discovery was adding plant stem cell extracts to my formulations. These cutting-edge botanicals work in synergy with proven phyto actives and deliver just want skin needs to define the skin tone and delay the visible signs of ageing.”

Featuring potent, regenerative properties, our organic stem cell skin care products provide a natural way to maintain a youthful complexion.

Some of the plant stem cell extracts that we use in these formulations have been scientifically proven to support collagen synthesis and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

The stem cell extracts we use include Apricot Plant Stem Cell Extract, Ginger Stem Cell Extract, Sea Holly Stem Cell Extract and Sea Fennel Plant Stem Cell Extract.

The best stem cell face cream


Our DD Tinted Moisturisers feature Sea Fennel Stem Cell Extract. Sea Fennel has evolved to withstand very harsh growing conditions on the rocky foreshores of Brittany. The extraordinary resilience of this plant is due in part to the high level of antioxidants it contains.

  • 20% increase in radiance

For best results, we recommend using Line Eraser for 4 weeks for improved skin structure and a noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
