STEM CELLS FROM PLANTS
Stem cells from some plants are clinically proven to slow the rate of aging of human skin. It slows the skin’s apparent age by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. More importantly it increases the actual vitality and longevity of your body’s largest organ, your skin. Your skin replaces itself every 27 days using its own system of stem cells. Unfortunately, your skin’s stem cells tend to age and die, resulting in fewer of them doing the work of creating new skin the older you get. Thus, you get the appearance of wrinkles and other obvious evidences of age. This results from the reduction in your stem cells’ capacity for self-renewal.
The breakthrough news is that externally applied stem cells from certain plants have displayed the following results in epidermal stem cell cultures:
Delaying the rate of aging. This not only slows the rate of cell aging, but your skin’s stem cells survive longer because they do not need to replicate as often.
To prove they’re effectivness, cell cultures were created from young epidermal stem cells as well as old epidermal stem cells. When an extract containing plant stem cells was applied to these cultures, the epidermis that grew was composed of all epidermal layers and was indistinguishable as to whether it was grown from the young or the old epidermal stem cells, showing that application of the plant stem cell extract was just as effective on old stem cells as it was on young stem cells in building full epidermal skin tissue.
Protection against oxidative stress which damages your skin.

Exfoliation is the process of removing the topmost layer of dead skin cells. This can be done at home with many of our wonderful scrubs, or using brushes, or simply using your hands to rub the particles on the skin and washing them off. After exfoliation is complete, you can also use a soft brush or exfoliating mitt to aid exfoliation.
Exfoliation can do much to improve your skin’s appearance and make your skin-care regime more effective and allows other skin treatments to penetrate deeper once the dead skin has been removed. Your skin will appear brighter after the dead cells have been removed. Every type of exfoliation may not work for every type of skin, and could in fact, make it worse. If you have acne for instance, (inflammatory type), which includes cysts and pustules, you should consult a Dermatologist before starting an exfoliation regime. Long term benefits can include increased collagen production, resulting in younger looking skin. This is even more true when adding wonderful microbeads which impart jojoba oil, and stem cells to your face. With non-inflammatory acne which is whiteheads and blackheads, it is very beneficial to exfoliate, as it prevents premature aging. For those who may suffer from rosacea, it could increase redness, so proceed with caution. It is best to consult your dermatologist before exfoliating if you have any questions.
BEST EXFOLIATION OPTIONS
Here at Honey Skin Organics we believe that we have developed the very best exfoliation options for nearly every type of skin.
Another innovation, is the addition of microbead encapsulates, made from oils and butters, which break open when rubbed, and have proven very beneficial by helping keep the skin hydrated and soft.
