Secret behind Michelle's youthful appeal

Secret behind Michelle's youthful appeal


According to ‘Vogue’ magazine, the US first lady buys a 215 pound serum which uses an extract from the stem cells of the Uttwiler Spatlauber apple, which stays fresh for up to four months after being harvested long after other varieties have become wrinkled.

Scientists said the stem cells from the fruit, used in creams and serums, stimulate human skin stem cells and protect skin cell regeneration, delaying the onset of wrinkles.
“It is being hailed in the cosmetic world as an exciting anti-ageing breakthrough and has been snapped up by around 100 beauty firms in Europe, Asia, and the US, including Lancome and Chantecaille,” ‘The Telegraph’ reported.
Despite its long shelf-life, the apple has not been considered desirable until now because of its tart taste.

The variety dubbed “the super apple” and first recorded in the mid-18th century, comes from northern Switzerland. If the tree’s bark or the skin of an unpicked fruit is punctured it heals. And once picked, an Uttwiler Spatlauber apple lasts months longer than its shrivelled cousins, said the report.
