More and more awareness about the efficacy of plant-based ingredients in beauty products is influencing consumers, especially in younger age group, who are now preferring plant stem cells to traditional ingredients like retinol (Vitamin A) for their products. (Retinol is routinely used by manufacturers to improve facial tone and texture, in their antiaging products.)
According to latest studies, dermal stem cells have the ability to different into fibroblasts that produce collagen and elastin proteins which are essential for skin elasticity and resilience. For the manufacturers, plant stem cells, being natural, enhance their environment friendly credentials. The use of plant cell extracts like jasmine (Gardenia Jasminoides) and raspberry (Rubus idaeus) in beauty products is increasingly steadily, reflecting consumer’s awareness for natural botanical ingredients in cosmetics.
The statistics reveal that the percentage of facial care products with stem cell increased from 1% in 2010 to 3% in 2014. The number of consumers in France and Germany preferring the plant-based ingredients is showing steady rise.
In line with this natural trend, organic oils like hip oil, strawberry seed oil, hemp oil, sandalwood oil and Moroccon argan oil are also finding wider acceptance from consumers. Prominent players like MayaChia, Church & Dwight, Glides Away have entered the market with new products containing some of these oils.
