exosomes are the tiny vesicles that shuttle messages between cells

Exosomes: what actually are they?

If you saw our prior post https://www.thestemcompany.com/blogs/news/the-key-to-science-in-a-bottle-consortia-factors, you got to see pictures of these microscopic miracles.  But what exactly is an exosome and what is so special about these alien looking things?  The word “exosome” often gets loosely thrown around.  The scientific definition comes from the Latin, “exo” meaning outside and “some” or “soma” meaning cellular.  So literally it means anything that started in the cell and was released in a package to the environment outside that cell or put another way nanosized extracellular vesicles crucial to intercellular communication.   

Translation…these are the messengers that allow your cells to communicate with each other. Simply put, they are the are “words” that your cells use to speak to each other. One single word won’t get very far, but if you pack over 13 BILLION exosomes into a topical, water-based skin care product you have the fountain of youth. 

Now that we know WHAT an exosome is, why is this important for skin care? These naturally occurring cell-to-cell communications tell the cell what to do. Now comes the really exciting part – while all exosomes speak to other cells, Dr. Newman’s patented method of generating the exosomes, used in STEM, results in a unique and specific set of instructions that supports and enhances the body’s own regenerative responses (this unique set of instructions is called Consortia Factors and are comprised of small molecules, growth factors, liposomes, exosomes and more!). Dr. Newman’s technology uses signals that are universally understood, so all of your cells understand the instructions to repair, renew and rejuvenate your skin targeting the unpopular visual signs of aging (think fine lines, loose skin, dark spots).

Dr. Newman's innovative approach can be likened to the age-old proverb: "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime." In the realm of skincare, Dr. Newman is not just feeding your skin for a day by covering up blemishes — STEM is “Mentoring” your cells on how to 'fish' for health, radiance, and rejuvenation, offering a lasting and transformative impact for a lifetime.

To give an example of how powerful and concentrated these consortia factors are, look at the graph below. This displays the 13.5 BILLION different exosomes found in STEM APT+ Regenerative Serum. Imagine all the incredible cell to cell interactions that can occur with 13.5 billion exosomes? To go back to our analogy of exosomes working as “words” there are only about 170,000 words in the English language, so STEM can “speak” approximately 80,000 languages- which actually is about 11 times more than the total number of languages that currently exist. In essence, STEM is way more advanced than we are!



Excuse our nerdy word count analogy and embark on a transformative journey with Dr. Newman's STEM Regenerative Serum. Uncover the secrets to skin repair, renewal, and regeneration as Dr. Newman's universal method and cutting-edge cell mentoring technology redefine the landscape of skincare.
