The Famous Skin Slow Down
You can’t deny it. We all get older! As we age lots of things happen to the body. Just compare photos from age 25 to age 35, to age 45. We’ve all done it! You’ll see the changes right on your face, especially if you’ve not done any type of regular skincare. #REALITYBITES
The Bottom Line
After 35, the body stops producing many vital hormones and substances that help to keep the skin looking plump and firm. Our body stops producing hyaluronic acid which helps to hydrate and plump the skin. It also stops producing stem cells which are like little tiny messengers in the skin that help the skin to function properly.
When stem cells slow down - the production of collagen also slows down. This brings crow’s feet, frown lines, parenthesis around the mouth, lines across the forehead and sagging upper eyelids.
How to Jumpstart Your Skin
There is hope! You can fight back and give your skin a boost. One of the most effective ways to jump start your skin is by adding more of those tiny little messengers back into your skin. Nothing is more cutting edge than stem cells. It’s a miracle of modern science - stem cells from placenta can help human skin cells proliferate and repair!
Stem Cell Question + Answers
We had a lot of questions about what exactly stem cells are, how stem cells work, and how they can benefit the skin. We reached out to XO8 Cosmeceuticals, a company that’s doing great work with stem cells. We asked a few questions and XO8 Cosmeceuticals gave us some helpful answers.
Q: Can you tell us about your stem cells?
A: Our ovine sheep placenta stem cell extract contains bioactive stem cells, which restore the growth layer function that slows down as we age.
Q: How do stem cells work?
A: The messenger molecules (known as growth factors and cytokines) in our extract wake our own dormant stem cells in the skin’s basal layer, restoring your skin’s normal function to repair and rejuvenate, leaving you with a healthy, youthful appearance.
Q: What is a pluripotent stem cell?
A: Pluripotent is a term used to define a cell’s ability to differentiate into other cell types. Pluripotent cells selectively attach themselves to good cells and then multiply, creating even more healthy, active skin cells.
Q: Are stem cells safe to use?
A: To ensure product safety and integrity, all of our raw materials for pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals are sourced from and processed at licensed MPI (Ministry of Primary Industries) inspected premises.

It’s more than just stem cells. Fighting skin aging requires a variety of ingredients to help brighten and tighten the skin. Stems cells give your skin a definite leg up, but, there are a lot of other ways to help improve skin. Adding in some truly remarkable acids, peptides, botanicals and minerals will give the skin all it needs to look firm, hydrated and refreshed!

Fact: If you’re 45, you’ll never be able to be 25 again. Who would want to be? The wisdom of experience is one of the most valuable treasures we can ever own. However, just because one is, “of a certain age” and filled with wisdom doesn’t mean they need to look old. A daily dose of the right product and a little boost before any special occasion will have everyone looking at your skin and wondering how someone so young can be so wise. ;-)
