But, how does it work?

"Sheep's placenta stem cells mirror human stem cells. It is a protein base that is close to our own cellular make-up so the body is able to absorb and recognizes it as its own," she explains. As a result, the proteins go to work at an intracellular level, not just on the surface. "For the same reason, there is no chemically negative skin reaction to the product. It's actually pretty close to the most perfect treatment."
