Stem cell cosmetic cream

A friend sent me an article yesterday. It was actually an ad from MORE Magazine for Amatokin--a stem cell cosmetic cream. The cream does not actually have stem cells in it; the technology simply uses "polypeptides and enzymes to awaken the body's own reservoir of stem cells to rejuvenate the skin and make you look younger" so the ad states.

While researching for my book, Right to Recover, I came across some information about cosmetic companies that were being influenced by stem cell technology. It was just beginning to be explored at the time. I'm sure many more cosmetic manufacturers will follow suit.

I am glad to know that stem cell technology awareness is advancing to the consumer level. I say this because getting those forbidden words “stem cells” in front of customers lessens the mystery and controversy surrounding this valuable science and makes the term more acceptable; which in turn, I hope will bring federal funding for medical research using all types of stem cells .
