Flower Power: Skincare Innovation with Flower Stem Cells

Flower stem cells are an innovative ingredient in the beauty industry. They deliver antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents to support healthy aging. By supercharging the skin’s metabolic process, these botanical extracts not only improve skin health, but its appearance. 


These extracts are often derived from the stem cells of Edelweiss, Iris, Lilac, and Alpine Rose flowers. Though distinct in activity, it is likely that human stem cells were the inspiration behind the introduction of flower stem cells in cosmetics. 


Flower stem cell extracts are thought to help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are also believed to help protect the skin from environmental damage and improve overall skin texture and tone.
