What is “induced pluripotent stem cell iPS”?
Induced pluripotent stem cells (also known as iPS cells or iPSCs) are a type of pluripotent stem cell that can be generated directly from adult cells. The iPSC technology was pioneered by Shinya Yamanaka’s lab in Kyoto, Japan, who showed in 2006 that the introduction of four specific transcription factors could convert adult cells into pluripotent stem cells.
Pluripotent stem cells hold great promise in the field of regenerative medicine. Because they can propagate indefinitely, as well as give rise to every other cell type, they represent a single source of cells that could be used to replace those lost to damage or disease.
Which Bonamour product contains iPS cells?
Bonamour ‘hi-drāt™ contains Active Plant stem cells and ‘hi-drāt™ counter agent.
Why can’t I just use the Bonamour ‘hi-drāt™ with iPS cells?
Bonamour ‘hi-drāt™ is only effective when its ingredients, including iPS cell formations contained in the formula, can reach deep into skin levels. Typically for previously untreated skin, the environment impact, UV radiation, dead skin that may be invisible to the naked eye, creates a barrier that prevents ‘hi-drāt™ penetration and transmission of iPS cells to trigger Bonamour ‘hi-drāt™ mechanism of action.
Therefore Bonamour treatment should be used as directed with attention to the application schedule in order to achieve superior results.
Can I use Bonamour products as regular cosmetics?
Yes. Bonamour ‘klenz™, Activating Mineral Mist (akte-vāt™) and Correct (kə-‘rekt™) Anti-Aging Eye Repair Cream can be use as regular cosmetic applications for its designated use. However Bonamour ‘hi-drāt™ applications with Active Plant Stem Cells and ‘hi-drāt™ counter agent will most likely not be effective without previous skin treatments as directed by Bonamour Rejuvenating Trio treatment.
