Protects epidermal stem cells against UV damage

A Revolutionary Technology to Protect Skin Stem Cells against UV-induced Aging
PhytoCellTec Solar Vitis is a powder based on the stem cells of a rare red-flesh grape tolerant to strong UV radiation.

UV radiation is responsible for 80 % of face aging. Despite the use of sun filters, toxins and oxidants are generated
by UV in the skin. This affects the most sensitive cells such as the epidermal stem cells which are rare and essential.
Thus, their protection against UV stress is of great importance.

A rare grape cultivar of Gamay was selected. Stem cells from this cultivar were obtained using our PhytoCellTec technology and were then incorporated in a water-soluble powder. These grape stem cells contain special epigenetic factors and metabolites which are able to protect human skin stem cells against UV radiation.

Using a novel Progenitor Cell Targeting technology, PhytoCellTec Solar Vitis was shown to:
• help the skin stem cells to maintain their stem cell characteristics
• protect these precious cells against UV-induced stress.
Besides, a clinical study showed the capacity of Phyto-CellTec Solar Vitis to increase the tolerance of the skin to UV.

PhytoCellTec Solar Vitis can thus protect both the skin and the epidermal stem cells against the stresses induced by UV, the main aging factor.

A grape cultivar with a high self-protecting power

High Anthocyanin Content in a Rare Grape
PhytoCellTec Solar Vitis is based on the stem cells of the Gamay Teinturier Fréaux grape.

This cultivar, originating from the Burgundy region in France, is characterized by its red flesh and juice due to the extremely high anthocyanin content. Most red grape varieties have white flesh under their skin but in the case of the Gamay Teinturier Fréaux, anthocyanin pigments are also present in the pulp. Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants and free radical scavengers. They act as a “sunscreen” by absorbing UV radiation. Their effectiveness is further enhanced by
interaction with other phytochemical substances present in the grape.

The high level of tannins also gives an undesirable taste to wines. This variety has therefore, almost completely disappeared.
