What are Exosomes?
When the skin is young, natural stem cell populations are at their greatest and act as your body’s first line of defense. When the skin is younger, it is better at fighting aging because of the greater presence of stem cells. As we age, we can see our repair messages are less responsive through visual cues such as scarring that takes much longer to heal.
Stem cells release nano-vesicles (~30-150nm) called exosomes, or extracellular vesicles (EVs). The use of exosomes is important because nanovesicles have been found to penetrate better, absorb more easily, and protect skincare actives.
As exosomes penetrate the skin, they mimic the body’s natural healing responses. Skin damage and extrinsic aging caused by exposure to daily aggressors like pollution and UVA/UVB can benefit from exosomes, supporting improved blood flow as well as promoting collagen and elastin production to reveal rejuvenated skin from the inside out.
ELEVAI Exosome™ Technology
The ELEVAI Exosome Technology™ was created after over 15 years of research by Dr. Jordan Plews. This proprietary technology was developed based on Dr. Plews intense interest and robust research on the natural cellular repair process of the skin. His research centered around the ability to mimic that natural repair process.
By employing ethically sourced stem cells, ELEVAI can harness the power of Human Umbilical Mesenchymal Stem Cells (hUMSC), and in proprietary controlled conditions, capture the released exosomes, and carefully filter the concentrate to produce ELEVAI Exosomes™.
Because of the nanosize exosomes (~30-150nm) ELEVAI products can penetrate deep into the skin catalyzing repair and rejuvenation.
