Venus Skin™’s SCT Accelerator is formulated to enhance and complement SCT Serum, providing nearly a dozen additional scientifically proven actives, which when combined SCT Serum creates the most complete skin care system available anywhere. Whereas SCT Serum is an aqueous (water borne) formulation, necessary since stem cell-derived bio-signals are produced in a predominantly aqueous culture medium, SCT Accelerator is a lipid predominant formula. Because the active ingredients are lipophilic (fat loving), they have enhanced penetration through the stratum corneum, in addition to “sealing in the actives in SCT Serum. SCT Serum and Accelerator combine as a complete anti-aging and rejuvenating skin care regimen second to none. Like SCT Serum, the actives in SCT Accelerator have abundant peer-reviewed published studies confirming their benefit to protecting young skin from aging and restoring aged skin to a more youthful like state.
Our body is in a state of constant damage control. Skin ages due to micro-injuries from the sun, smoke, and toxins. Even gravity, smiles, frowns and grimaces play a role. Modern science discovered that one type of stem cell is commander in-chief of healing in all tissues. SCT Accelerator harnesses the power of these miracle cells by culturing them in the laboratory in order to harvest the pro-healing anti-inflammatory bio-signals they produce. The cells are then discarded. The product is cell free.
In life, these cells are our 911 emergency responders, on constant patrol in our blood stream searching for injury to repair. Although they can morph into a repair cell, nearly all of their function is to act as smart little “drugstores, secreting bio-chemical signals that orchestrate healing and modulate inflammation. Remarkably, they originate in the bone marrow, but like red & white cells and platelets migrate into the bloodstream.
Paradoxically, they are also responsible for the decline in healing ability and increase in inflammation that comes with each passing decade. Plummeting numbers are the reason. By age fifty, only 4.5% the number we have at birth remain and that number dwindles with each passing year. The good news is skin cells respond to stem cell bio-signals no matter what their source - from laboratory cell cultures in the laboratory, even when formulated into a scientifically advanced skin care product like SCT Serum. The skin clock can run backwards. Even in life, our skin doesn’t respond directly to the stem cells, but rather to the bio-signals they produce.
