Benefits of Edelweiss Stem Cells + Product Review

edelweiss stem cells

The buzz word in the skincare industry is “plant stem cells.” We all want to get our hands on beauty products that contain this ingredient. Plant stem cells are good for skin because they boost collagen production and protect skin cells. Many plant stem cells offer anti-aging benefits, which is why they’re harvested for skincare products. There are several different types of plant stem cells, but some stand out from the rest. The stem cell known as edelweiss is a powerhouse in the skincare industry. Due to its anti-aging properties, cosmetic companies across the globe are incorporating edelweiss into their anti-aging creams and serums. But what makes this stem cell so special?

The Benefits of Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells

The edelweiss plant is a tiny white flower that grows in extremely harsh climates. It produces antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and other active substances in order to thrive in these conditions. Scientists use these defenses by utilizing the compounds of the plant stem cell to enhance skincare products. The science isn’t exactly that simple, but you get the picture: the defenses that so efficiently protect the edelweiss plant in harsh climates are used to protect human skin and reverse the signs of aging.

Edelweiss has many components that create younger looking skin. It protects cells and supposedly prevents collagen breakdown. Some experts say that the addition of plant stem cells in beauty products can eliminate the need for injections.

We got our hands on a few beauty products containing plant stem cells and reviewed their effectiveness. Although we love the effects of edelweiss, not all of these products contain the edelweiss stem cell. However, they all incorporate the dynamite benefits of plant stem cells.

Product Comparison

DermaSet Stem Cell 3D Renewal Treatment 

This anti-aging cream uses plant stem cells and other natural ingredients to protect and repair damaged and aged skin. The formula is packed with not one, but three notable plant stem cells, including edelweiss. Because the cream is highly concentrated, you only need a small amount under your eyes, neck and decolletage. You will notice some effects right away, such as more nourished, moisturized skin. Other effects, such as the removal of fine lines and wrinkles may take more time to show, but everyone’s skin is different.

We love that their formula is hypoallergenic and only contains natural ingredients. A 2 oz tube of DermaSet’s anti-aging cream currently costs $179.

BRAD Biophotonic Sublime Gel Cream

“Resculpt, restructure and elevate the skin with this light, yet super-potent, age defying gel cream.” BRAD’s gel cream has the ability to “resculpt” and “restructure” in part by the plant stem cell Globularia Cordifolia. This wonderful plant extract comes from the globe daisy and is patented as “Resistem” – you may have heard of it. This ingredient performs the dual action of fighting against pro-aging agents (such as the environment) and protecting skin stem cells.

On its own, it reduces micro-inflammation, redness and evens out the skin’s complexion. When coupled with other natural ingredients in BRAD’s Sublime gel crea, it can significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A 1.7 oz bottle currently costs $245.

Sciote Omni Phyto-Cell Serum 

The makers of Sciote Omni Phyto-Cell Serum designed a formula with the anti-aging complexes, Resistem being one of them. Another is Matrixyl 3000, an ingredient that we love because it activates the production of collagen and elastin within the skin. This one ingredient tightens the skin and reduces the signs of aging by repairing damaged skin. Like many serums, it acts as a moisturizing agent and hydrates/nourishes the skin. A 1 oz bottle of the cell serum currently costs $137.

HydroPeptide Hydrostem Stem Cell Antioxidant Serum 

This antioxidant serum offers a complex of six different plant-based stem cells and peptides. It lessens the appearance of age damage, deep lines and wrinkles; it also comes with Hyaluronic acid which will moisturize your skin and brighten your complexion. A 1 oz bottle of this antioxidant serum currently costs $160.


It’s great to see that more and more companies are incorporating effective, all-natural ingredients into their products rather than sulfates, parabens and other harsh chemicals we can hardly pronounce. Each one of these anti-aging products receives a nod of approval, but we preferred DermaSet’s all-in-one anti-aging cream for its inclusion of edelweiss stem cells. There are many plant stem cells currently in use on the market, but the benefits of edelweiss are hard to ignore. So we won’t. Edelweiss and the many other natural ingredients in this anti-aging serum have us swooning. The fact that DermaSet is offering a 30 day free trial (you only pay shipping) is the final reason we recommend using it.
