Are you familiar with "stem cell" ?
Well, if you're not, then let's do the high-five! Yeah, because I have (almost) no idea about it. Call me fake-beauty-blogger, but, err... I don't know much about it. Thus, I've done some research.
So, in a sentence, stem cells are biological cells found in all multicellular organism, that can divide (through mitosis) and differentiate into diverse specialized cell types and can self-renew to produce more stem cells (Gosh, thanks to Wikipedia!). All those words might be confusing, so in short, stem cells are mother cells which have the potential to transform into any type of cell in our body. The highlight is its ability to self-renew or multiply while maintaining its potential to develop into other types of cells. For example, stem cells can transform into the cells of blood, heart, bones, and SKIN.
Indeed, these cells multiply infinitely to regenerate and repair the skin in case of an aggression. They create and maintain life.
These cells are very precious, but also very fragile: the number of stem cells does not decrease with age. It is their functionality which is reduced due to internal and external aggression. It is, therefore, essential to protect stem cells, their environment and their regenerating power.
In terms of beauty, stem cells is believed to closely linked to support youthfulness or anti-aging feature. This trend can be seen these days from the skin care beauty brands under the nickname "Super Serum" just like LANCÔME Génifique and Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair do. Super serums enabled the skincare market to find new areas of growth and imposed themselves as a new incontestable step in women’s care routine.
Surprisingly, after 24 years of research, the Recherche Avancée L’Oréal discovered the existence of 2 stem cells pools at the hair follicle’s level. This discovery thus lead Kérastase to introduce us its latest product which claims to be the first serum that creates perfect hair.
What is the latest product from Kérastase?
Stay tuned for the next post! I'll reveal it there. :)
