When it comes to our skin care goals, one key benefit seems to rule them all – anti-aging. While aging skin may be inevitable, taking preventative action now can reduce the visible signs of aging long-term. Two key elements in this process are supporting collagen production and exfoliation. In other words, boosting the components of skin that keep it looking plump, while ridding the skin’s surface of older cells that can tend to build up over time.
In our efforts to support and maintain a youthful appearance, Stem Cells can complement these two key elements and contribute to a significant improvement in overall skin tone and texture. We’re taking it one step further by introducing you to NASA Stem Cell Technology. This revolutionary technology increases the overall efficacy of stem cells - allowing them to enhance our tried and trusted anti-aging skin care routines in order to seemingly defy gravity.
Here is everything you need to know about stem cells and NASA’s patented technology, including our recommendations on how to incorporate them into your skin care routine.
What are Stem Cells?
Stem Cells are naturally produced by our body and have the capacity to split and renew themselves over extended periods of time. This regeneration process is the key to skin rejuvenation as it supports the two key anti-aging elements - cell turnover and collagen production.
Like human stem cells, plant-derived stem cells have antioxidant properties and contain amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins which promote cell renewal and maintain our skin’s overall hydration. However, when stem cells are created for topical application, they tend to flatten and lose efficacy under the influence of gravity.

The Difference with NASA Stem Cell Technology
Our Stem Cell Technology is a blend of cultured plant cells created without the influence of gravity, resulting in a powerful technology that is clinically proven to reduce the signs of aging. These cells more closely mimic those that we naturally produce, resulting in an overall increase in benefits.
NASA Stem Cell Technology was designed with a specific focus of targeting the signs of aging on the skin. Its key benefits include reducing the signs of lines and wrinkles, supporting the proliferation of skin cells and preventing/ delaying the visible signs of aging.
Incorporating Stem Cells into Your Routine
What could be more effective than incorporating a powerful technology such as NASA’s Stem Cells in skincare? Coupling this key ingredient with clean and effective ingredients that are clinically proven to drive results. As our Director of Brand Development Heather Wilson says, “Skin care products should be evaluated as a sum of their parts, not based on a single ingredient. That is why when creating products, we design them to include a combination of powerful actives, alongside a variety of botanicals, to create a formula that offers superior results versus a single ingredient.”
If you’re looking to hydrate and plump your skin while preventing future signs of aging:
Our Anti-Aging Collagen Serum pairs NASA Stem Cell Technology with Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen and a Peptide Complex to firm the appearance of lines and wrinkles to reveal a more vibrant, youthful complexion.
Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen act like a drink of water for the skin, hydrating and plumping the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while Peptides support a healthy skin barrier and promote collagen production to reduce common signs of aging.
Suitable for all skin types, our Anti-Aging Collagen Serum:
- Improves firmness and elasticity in the skin
- Reduces signs of deep lines and wrinkles
- Supports the skin’s natural collagen production to reduce future signs of aging
This serum will provide a targeted treatment for deep lines and wrinkles due to its notable concentration of active ingredients in a safe and clean formula. It is lightweight, aroma-free and will appear milky white in color. It can be used both morning and night, after cleansing and before moisturizer.
If you’re looking to deeply hydrate your skin and soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles:
Our Hyaluronic Acid Serum 85% pairs NASA Stem Cell Technology with a Multi-Molecular Hyaluronix® and Niacinamide to deeply replenish the skin and reveal a more radiant, nourished and youthful complexion.
Multi-Molecular Hyaluronix® is a form of Hyaluronic Acid comprised of various molecular weights to hydrate multiple layers of the skin while Niacinamide protects the skin’s natural barrier. Polyglutamic Acid adds another level of hydration while preventing water loss on the skin.
Suitable for all skin types, our Hyaluronic Acid Serum 85%:
- Deeply hydrates the skin
- Reduces the look of wrinkles
- Prevents trans-epidermal water loss
This serum is lightweight, oil-free, aroma-free and will appear pale blue in color. For best results, we recommend shaking this product before use and apply twice a day, both morning and night. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer to seal in the benefits of this targeted treatment.
If you’re looking to combat hyperpigmentation while supporting your skin’s overall health:
Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that boosts cell turnover to exfoliate dulling skin cells and smooth the texture of skin. Niacinamide supports a healthy skin barrier while decreasing the appearance of discoloration and redness.
Suitable for all skin types, our Dark Spot Corrector:
- Minimizes sunspots and hyperpigmentation
- Softens the look of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
- Exfoliates to reveal brighter, healthier skin
This corrector is lightweight, oil-free, aroma-free and vegan. While AHAs provide incredible resurfacing abilities for the skin and are often preferred over physical exfoliants, they can increase our skin’s sensitivity to the sun. It is recommended that this product is used at night and an appropriate SPF is worn during the day.
