How a rare variety of Swiss orchid apples could be just what the dermatologist ordered
As the old adage goes, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” or as science would have it, the dermatologist.
Stem cell extraction may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but according to Australian biotechnology skincare brand, Enbacci, it is the future of cosmeceuticals.
“Plant stem cells contain a concentration of antioxidants 1,000 greater than any other botanical extract,” says Yong-Li Zhou, the founder of Enbacci.
“As human skin cells are under constant assault from free radicals, UV rays, environmental toxins, age, and poor nutrition, every time our skin cells turn over, they run the risk of damage and lethal DNA mutation,” Yong-Li continued.
Capable of stimulating new stem cell activity in prematurely aged skin and reversing the effects of UV-induced cellular damage, stem cells harvested from a rare variety of swiss orchid apples, the Uttwiler Spätlauber, is purported to have the strongest anti-ageing evidence when used topically.
Formulated in Enbacci’s pioneering Age Revitalising Eye Defence cream, this genus of apple supplies the skin withphytonutrients, such as quercetin and pectin, and providescosmetic relief from dryness, sallowness, wrinkles, and fatigue.
Rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, including a nourishing cocktail of amino acids, peptides, antioxidants and essential fatty acids, the stem cell infused eye cream improves skin cellcommunication and regeneration, boosts collagen production, and protects skin from future free radical assault.
According to the International Journal of Applied Science, a mere 0.1% concentration of stem cells from the UttwilerSpätlauber can proliferate a wealth of human stem cells by an astounding 80%, and reduce the appearance of wrinkle depth by 8% in as little as two weeks.
The product is dewey, smooth and feels nourishing and soft on the skin. I spent a large portion of my life working behind the beauty counter trialling everything under the sun- from lux to less, natural to strongly formulated. This eye cream is effective and affordable. As a full faced make-up kind of gal, it also sits perfectly as a daily base on my delicate eye area- without letting the make-up get into any creases or wrinkles! I use it every night before bed and I have been genuinely impressed with how gentle and soft it is. I would definitely recommend this beautiful eye cream.
As one of the few Australian brands pioneering the use of apple stem cells, the Age Revitalising Eye Defence cream is lightweight and fragrance-free, and performs exceptionally well when paired with other actives, including retinol, ascorbic acid, and AHAs.
Manufactured in Australia, the Age Revitalising Eye Defence cream is available globally online, or via the brand’s flagship store in Prahran, Melbourne.
