Apple Stem Cell Effect & Sustainability


Our Miracle Apple (The Uttwiler Spätlauber)-

What is this magnificent apple that is being hailed as the fountain of youth?

  • apiel Skin Care uses only the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple, an 18th century variety of apple grown only in Switzerland. Though very rare today, this unique variety was known for its remarkable capacity to keep fresh for long periods of time.
  • In fact, this variety of apple could be stored for months without becoming shriveled or losing flavor.
  • Over the past couple of hundred years,  the Uttwiler Spätlauber lost its popularity to sweeter apples because of its bitter taste.
  • As a result, this type of apple is both special and rare today.
  • Due to the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple’s special characteristics, specifically its long-lived green apple stem cells, researchers and scientists in Switzerland studied and applied these characteristics for cosmetic use (PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica).
  • Today, technology has made it possible to cultivate these highly effective green apple stem cells, and include them in the apiel products.

The Effect

  • Comprehensive clinical studies of the PhytoCellTec™ Malus Domestica show that these apple stem cells help promote the vitality and longevity of skin stem cells, while helping to protect those cells from environmental damage and stress.
  • 100% of all respondents saw a decrease in the visibility of wrinkles due to aging within the first 30 days of use.


With a tree this rare, how are the apple’s stem cells obtainable and sustainable?

  • Only one fruit or one leaf is used to establish the green apple stem cells culture. Therefore, our biotechnology methodology protects and helps to preserve this rare and endangered Uttwiler Spätlauber tree for generations to come. And because no significant agricultural land is required to produce biomass, there is only a small consumption of water compared to conventional-ingredient production and no need for fertilizer, pesticides and other chemicals.
