Let's talk about apples and snails. Now that's an odd topic of conversation, you might say. Well indeed it is, however, Apple Stem Cells and Snail Secretion Filtrate are two of the active ingredients in our revolutionary anti-aging serum Lifting Stem Cell Serum!

As odd as these two ingredients may sound, they both have very interesting stories. Each are anti-aging powerhouses on their own and they have been combined into Lifting Stem Cell Serum to create a super serum that provides quick results to aging skin and also helps those who are battling both acne and aging.

Apple Stem Cell Technology comes from the Uttwiler Spatlauber apple tree in Switzerland. This rare type of apple is known for having a remarkably long shelf life. It was cultivated in the 18th century, before refrigeration, when it was necessary for an apple to last through the winter without spoiling. Although it is no longer cultivated, some of these trees still remain in Switzerland. A group of Swiss scientists decided to study the apple to find out its secret of self preservation. They discovered that these apples contain highly active stem cells that, like human stem cells, have the ability to regenerate other cells. This regeneration process allows the apple to essentially preserve itself! Pretty cool, but what's even cooler is that this apple stem cell extract has been shown to stimulate human stem cells, helping them to regenerate and protecting them from ultra violet (UV) damage. This is big news in anti-aging skincare! This precious extract can increase the longevity of skin cells and rejuvenate aging skin. Wow!



Snail Secretion Filtrate has been used since the time of the Greeks and Romans. This ancient garden snail (known as Helix Aspersa Müller) has survived extreme environmental conditions for more than 600 million years. The secret to the snail's longevity is its ability to repair any damage to its skin and prevent infection with its complex secretions. More recently, snail farmers in Chili discovered that the snail's secretions made their hands incredibly soft and smooth and that wounds and infections healed rapidly and without scarring. This is due to the fact that the snail's secretions are rich in vitamins such as A, C and E and are a natural source of skin softening allantoin, collagen and elastin. These ingredients help repair and rejuvenate skin and this Snail Secretion Extract also opens clogged pores and provides anti-bacterial benefits, making it an excellent choice for those who are trying to prevent pimples as well as wrinkles. The snail's secretions are collected without harming the animal and then filtered to produce this rich, anti-aging extract.

These two revolutionary ingredients have been combined with skin smoothing Apricot Kernel Oil, oxygenating Tissue Respiratory Factor (TRF), moisturizing Algae Extract and anti-inflammatory AstaXanthin to create an anti-aging powerhouse serum. Used twice daily, this product will help provide longevity of skin cells, reverse signs of aging, unclog pores and create a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
