We have written quite a bit about pyramid schemes here in the pages of BFT. Generally we have been, shall we say, critical. But now we must confess to our reading audience we have our own pyramid. OK, so it’s not a selling pyramid where the folks at the bottom get crushed.
That would look more like this:
Ours is a skin care pyramid!
Well, it’s not really our pyramid – we borrowed it from articles written in medical dermatology journals.
So, why are we so fired up about this? Because our work made it to the top of the pyramid. Stem cells, cytokines & growth factors. We have officially displaced peptides (underwhelming) and all those ho hum botanicals from the top. We are officially the “highest science” in the kingdom.
If you have spent any significant time here, you know our commitment to scientific truth is paramount, and that our personal passions are applying advances in human stem cell science to anti-aging skincare. From the skincare pyramid published in the April 2014 issue of the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, you can see our research into bone marrow stem cell cytokines and growth factors is precisely where the “action” is in skincare.
We knew all along that our science was cutting edge. It now appears the dermatologists are recognizing the importance topical human bio-signals can play in optimizing and stimulating human skin cell behavior and function.
