Human Adipose Derived Stem Cell Conditioned Media
If you see "some kind of cell conditioned media" on the ingredient list, it always means a Growth Factor Cocktail for your skin. In this case, we are talking about Adipose-Derived Stem Cells (ADSC), i.e. cells that differentiate later into fat cells. These cells are known to secrete various growth factors that have significant wound healing and antioxidant properties.
If you are new to Growth Factors, they are medium long amino acid sequences (= small proteins = big peptides) that work as a cell signaling molecules to stimulate cell growth, proliferation, healing and/or differentiation. The whole Growth Factors and skincare topic is pretty big and somewhat confusing, so if you want to dip your toes into it, we have a shiny description at Epidermal Growth Factor, the first GF that found its way into cosmetic products and also at Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media, a GF Cocktail similar to this one, but coming from different type of cells.
