Swiss Apples, also known as (Uttwiler Spätlauber), come from a nearly extinct variety of apple trees only found in Switzerland and first recorded in the 18th century. When the tree's bark or the skin of an unpicked apple is punctured -- it heals. Once picked, an Uttwiler Spätlauber apple lasts months longer than all others.
Scientists at Mibelle Biochemistry in Switzerland decided to investigate whether the miracle component in Swiss apples could be harnessed to stop the aging process in people. They found the key to the apple's longevity in in its unusually resilient stem cells. In clinical tests the apple's stem cells appeared to protect human skin by nourishing and stimulating the cells along with defending against UV radiation. In a trial using 20 volunteers and supplying a 2% cream twice daily, scientists found that line depth was reduced by 15% in wrinkles, crows feet and damaged skin.
The discovery of the skin healing powers of Swiss Apple stem cells has opened up a new market for creams and lotions using this incredible ingredient, but so far anything containing Swiss Apple stem cells costs between $100 all the way up to $1,500. Over the past few months, it's mainly rich people, models and movie stars who've been using Uttwiler Spätlauber extract because of its high cost. In fact Vogue magazine recently reported that First Lady Michelle Obama uses a $325 cream containing Swiss Apple extract. Not too many of us can afford something that expensive.
Our product development team at Greensations has come up with a way to deliver the same results from Swiss Apple stem cells without the inflated price by combining it with capsaicin and caffeine in a solid balm. The capsaicin and caffeine create a super permeability through the skin which allows small doses of added ingredients to penetrate skin layers in a base made of olive oil, grapeseed oil and beeswax. By introducing the Swiss Apple stem cells into the beeswax base during the cooling process, the stem cells bind with the capsaicin and caffeine. Once the formulation cools and becomes a solid balm, stem cells are protected while being applied to the skin. In creams and serums, many of the stem cells are destroyed by exposure to air and other environmental elements. When formulated in a solid form, these stem cells are protected and nothing is wasted. This allows small doses of apple extract to be used which helps keep the cost much lower. When the stem cells are added to traditional creams and serums, the formulation requires extra amounts to make up for natural degradation, but in a solid form combined with the super carriers capsaicin and caffeine, a smaller amount of stem cells can be delivered directly to the epidermis with no degradation.
The result is a solid skin balm that contains active amounts of Swiss Apple stem cells at a much lower cost that anyone can afford. In addition, the capsaicin and caffeine also increase topical blood flow and promote natural healing while also protecting the skin from UV damage. Capsaicin and caffeine also reduce wrinkles and lines while tightening skin and when combined with Swiss Apple stem cells, this formula goes beyond any other anti-aging products to provide fast and lasting results.
