Do creams with “plant stem cells” help to fade scars?

  1. they “moisturize”. Most moisturizers enhance the appearance of “moistness” by adding fatty or shiny substances to the skin which often results in a smoother appearance
  2. they “swell”. ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids irritate the skin and cause swelling of the underlying tissues. This swelling minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the skin
  3. they “peel”. by causing the outer layers of skin to peel off, the underlying skin is usually softer and has less superficial damage.
