FAQs
  • What are Stem Cells?
    Stem Cells are biological cells that divide and differentiate into various specialized cell types, and self-renew to produce more stem cells. Stem cells are found in almost all the organs of the body and are named after their source: embryonic stem cells (ESCs), bone-marrow stem cells (BMSCs), adipose (from fat) stem cells (ASCs), etc. NuGene’s cutting edge technology utilizes human adipose stem cells (ASCs) derived biomolecules and growth factors. These cells are highly capable of stimulating cellular proliferation and differentiation. Each cytokine/protein/growth factor produced has a unique characteristic function. For example, EGF increases the proliferation of fibroblast, which synthesizes collagen and elastin, and IGF-1 increases the synthesis of hyaluronic acid. The overall effects of these factors result in increased skin elasticity, which helps reduce fine lines/wrinkles and improves skin vitality.
  • Why use Stem Cells in the NuGene Skin Care System?
    Human skin is a living organ which performs dynamic activities such as growth, repair and maintenance. Even though our skin requires growth factors as key modulators of skin cell metabolism and function, their expression level decreases as we age. This decrease is attributed to the slow-down or non-function of the stem cells’ self-renewal capability and protein expression, thus diminishing the defense capacity of the skin. To overcome this, scientists at NuGene adopted the use of human ASCs, as they can be differentiated with large plasticity for the repair and regeneration of the skin by self-limiting cell division and production of cytokines and growth factors. More importantly, the biomolecules delivered by ASCs are pure in nature and native in structure. These ASCs and products thereof are not recognized as foreign by the human body, thus preventing graft-versus-host reaction and providing hematopoietic support. These biomolecules, upon topical application, improve the skin’s elasticity and plasticity, which in turn accelerates its rejuvenation process.
  • Are these Products Safe?
    Yes! NuGene has been clinically proven to be safe. The human ASC derived proteins, cytokines, and growth factors are completely safe. They are structurally and functionally similar to the ones delivered in vivo and therefore, no allergic reaction is expected from topical application.
  • What else is in NuGene Skin Care System?
    NuGene skin care system contain anti-oxidants to protect against free radicals and UV rays, which are major contributors to aging skin. NuGene also has multi vitamins, amino acids and minerals to support the youthful texture of the skin, and moisturizing ingredients to hydrate. NuGene only uses the highest quality vitamins, minerals and botanicals. NuGene products are organic as well as chemical, paraben and alcohol free. NuGene products are not tested on animals.
  • Who should use NuGene Skin Care System?
    The NuGene skin care system is beneficial for skin of all ages. These products are designed both to prevent and to reverse the signs of aging for both men and women.
  • Are Growth Factors the same as the Growth Hormone?
    No, they are not. Growth hormone is a single protein made by the pituitary gland and released into the bloodstream. The main function of the growth hormone is to stimulate the growth of musculoskeletal tissue. This hormone is critical during childhood and puberty and a severe deficiency results in dwarfism. In contrast, growth factors are a family of proteins that are produced in small amounts by a variety of cells. They usually act in their microenvironment and on neighboring cells. They stimulate the proliferation and protein synthesis in their target cells.
