The other day I read a beauty article in Vogue about a Swiss apple that appears to be the new "fountain of youth." The tree is called the Uttwiler Spatlauber and the most expensive beauty brands are incorporating it into their creams as the latest in anti-aging ingredients.
The story goes that for a long time these apples were ignored due to their acidic flavor and that over time, the trees died. The funny thing is that even though these were declining, the apples were preserved. When collected, they could last up to months without damage or, if damaged, they themselves had the ability to recover on their own. The natural question was what is the secret to her long youth? According to the American magazine, a laboratory in Switzerland discovered that the stem cells of this apple, in charge of maintaining and repairing the tissues of the skin, were unusually resistant. In clinical tests it was proven that these seemed to protect human stem cells by nourishing them by stimulating them and defending them from radiation. Nature never ceases to amaze me!
In a short time the cosmetic houses were put to work and, nowadays, the ingredient PhytoCellTec Malus Domestica is found in luxurious creams such as M Cream, by 3Lab and Absolue Precious Cells Cream, by Lancôme. If you don't want to spend too much, try Lumene's Excellent Future Deep Repairing Cream and Serum, at a more affordable price.
