Vytrus produces their active ingredients according to a biotechnological process whose origin comes from the real power of the plants. The reason why is called ‘Plant Stem Cells’.


Did you notice that a tree branch always regenerate by itself when cutted or damaged? Have you seen how a plant never stop growing?

Plants have a constant pool of Plant Stem Cells. These cells can repair any damaged tissue, but also, a complete and functional plant can be regenerated from a single stem cell when being maintained under the appropiate conditions.

This exceptional regenerative potential of Plant Stem Cells is the base of our product portfolio.

Plant Stem Cells are an excellent and innovative source of active compounds for skin and hair care.


Plant Stem Cells can be obtained from accurately selected plant tissues (explants) through a designed process of cellular reprogramming (de-differentiation). Plant Stem cells cultures require very advanced technology to be grown and it must be performed entirely under sterile conditions.

This process is very specific and appropiate conditions to obtain the pool of plant stem cells must be found in every development for each plant species.

Both solid and liquid cell cultures are maintained under strict and controlled conditions in order to achieve the plant Stem cell line establishment. This ensures an endless source of high quality plant material.


  • Natural ingredient with improved properties through Plant Biotechnology

  • Unlimited supply and controlled production conditions:

    • Constant production flow of active ingredient independent from external factors
    • Stable quality and aseptic conditions
    • Standardization of batches
  • Minimal impact on ecosystems, independent from natural resources

  • Highly eco-sustainable technology:

    • Drastic reduction of water use
    • Herbicides and pesticides free
    • VOC and BSE free
    • Significant reduction of carbon footprint
    • No use of arable soil

Able to exploit rare plants: close to extinction, endemisms, geopolitical issues, scarce bioactive yields from the plant


Plants do not work with just one highly concentrate molecule or pure ones, they need the synergistic performance of a sophisticated mixture of compounds.

Plants have developed sophisticated cocktails of molecules (phytocomplexes) to ensure their survival and spread. Being rooted, they cannot fight or run away from dangers and due to this limiting situation, each plant species has evolved and developed, for millions of years, a very unique mechanism to defend itself from diverse dangers and threats (animals, microorganisms, climatic adversities, etc.).

So why not take advantage of this natural and wise way of functioning?

Vytrus has discovered how to take profit of all this astonishing potential

Plant stem cells contain and produce in large quantities secondary metabolites and proactive essential substances such us amino acids, lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and growth factors among others. All these substances perform in a synergistic way to produce the dermocosmetic active principles of interest. They contribute to a better effectiveness of the product and to a strengthened cosmetic activity: Molecular Synergy
