Direct from the ice age: the skincare product using plant stem cells from 11,700 years ago

When it comes to skincare, it’s easy to forget the rest of our body when we’re in pursuit of a clear, radiant complexion. However, according to the latest science, many ingredients we use on our face can be equally effective when applied to other areas of skin, providing an exciting new horizon for active body care treatments.

Pioneering the use of stem cell technology in Australia, luxury skincare brand, Enbacci, unveils the science behind their revolutionary Complete Body Firming Lotion, crediting the stem cells of a 11,700 year old plant, the Saponaria Pumila, for its firming and toning abilities.


Native to the alpine mountains over 11,000 years ago during the Pleistocene period, the resilient Saponaria Pumila plant survived the last ice age by developing protective repair mechanisms to withstand extreme weather conditions, including UV radiation.


Preserved in the stem cells of the Saponaria Pumila, these distinctive survival characteristics have been scientifically proven to protect dermal skin cells from radiation, improve human stem cell activity, and fortify the skin’s natural defence system by improving skin barrier function, elasticity and firmness.


As the first all-over body treatment in Australia to contain Saponaria Pumila stem cells, the Complete Body Firming Lotion also combines a host of natural ingredients, such as Sunflower Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Macadamia Oil, Shea Butter and Lecithin, to energise dermal skin cell activity, improve moisture retention and re-densify sagging, tired and mature-looking skin.


According to a study conducted by PhytoCellTec, a mere 0.5% concentration of Saponaria Pumila stem cells can protect the dermis from UV irradiation by 35% and improve skin density and firmness by 14% over a 28-day period.
