Hollywood, CA(Perfect SkinToday)1/29/13/–This product is manufactured by a company called LPAR Skin Care, who also go by the Moniker Lucrece Physicians Aesthetic Research. Their research indicates that Plant stem cells represent a major breakthrough in skin care by replenishing the building blocks of what makes up our own skin. The Stem Cell Replenishing Serum from LPAR Skin Care is a combination of apple, edelweiss and grape stem cells, peptides and other ingredients, and is suitable for mature skin types.





I came across this company by accident, and I believe they have been around since 1993. The packaging is classy enough to indicate that a lot of care goes in to the planning. The Serum has a lovely light feel to it with  6.5 Ph. A list of the other ingredients is way too extensive to mention here but the stem cells are the driving force here.





They also do a Stem Cell Replenishing Mask which is a blend of three botanical stem Cells- 2% apple, Gardenia Jasminoides, Echinacea Angustifolia and two potent peptides. The stem cell concentration in the mask is 5.5% and the peptide concentration is 9%.





Lucrece Physicians’ Aesthetic Research were the first company to introduce the apple/edelweiss combination in 2009, and were well aware that stem cells in our skin have a limited life expectancy due to DNA damage and oxidative stress. The Lucrece stem cells come from a rare Swiss Apple, and the key ingredient is Malus Domestica by PhytoCellTec based on a high tech plant cell culture technology.





To get more technical about these plant stem cells, here are a few of the benefits of the various types. Apple Stem Cells protect the longevity of skin stem cells, and Edelweiss Stem Cells are anti-inflammatory and offer sun protection and healing. Echinacea Stem Cells improve dull and tired looking skin, and Gardena Jasminoides cells helps in the prevention of collagen degradation. Grape Stem Cells protect against UV stress and photo-aging

Other stem cells included are Alp Rose Stem Cells found in the Eye Therapy by  Lucrece Physicians’ Aesthetic Research that help the skin cope with climate changes and Lilac Leaf Cells in the company Peptide Peel that are anti-acne and a tyrosinase inhibitor.
