CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 13, 2012) - International Stem Cell Corporation (OTCQB: ISCO) (www.internationalstemcell.com) ("ISCO" or "the Company") a California-based biotechnology company, today announced the commercial launch of its newest stem cell based skin care product by wholly-owned subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care, Inc.
The new Lifeline® Eye Firming Complex is now available to shareholders, followers and supporters of ISCO and Lifeline Skin Care. The product will be available online (www.lifelineskincare.com), in selected spas and medical clinics on November 15, 2012.
Lifeline Eye Firming Complex complements the current anti-aging product line introduced in November 2010 and available in selected luxury spas, medical offices and online. The new, extended Lifeline product line will be promoted by recently engaged celebrities including Emme, the supermodel and author who was twice-named one of People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People, and Glamour magazine's Woman of the Year; and Jennifer Galardi, a celebrity trainer, nationally recognized fitness and yoga guru, and the face for fitness brands Adidas, Under Armour, New Balance and Nike.
According to supermodel and beauty expert Emme, "Women are concerned about their appearance, and they're especially concerned about the lines and wrinkles around their eyes. That's why they'll like Lifeline's new eye cream -- women want something that really works."
Eye creams are considered a "must-have" in anti-aging skincare, and are typically the most popular product with customers. The new Eye Firming Complex includes novel ingredients designed to produce beneficial results, including peptides and HSC-X™ -- the human stem cell extract developed and patented by International Stem Cell Corporation which is used in the Company's anti-aging Day and Night serums.
"This addition to our skincare line has been highly anticipated," says Donna Queen, President of Lifeline Skin Care. "An eye treatment was the #1 request by our customers."
About International Stem Cell Corporation
International Stem Cell Corporation is focused on the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) and the development and commercialization of cell-based research and cosmetic products. ISCO's core technology, parthenogenesis, results in the creation of pluripotent human stem cells from unfertilized oocytes (eggs) hence avoiding ethical issues associated with the use or destruction of viable human embryos. ISCO scientists have created the first parthenogenetic, homozygous stem cell line that can be a source of therapeutic cells for hundreds of millions of individuals of differing genders, ages and racial background with minimal immune rejection after transplantation. hpSCs offer the potential to create the first true stem cell bank, UniStemCell™. ISCO also produces and markets specialized cells and growth media for therapeutic research worldwide through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology (www.lifelinecelltech.com), and stem cell-based skin care products through its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care (www.lifelineskincare.com).
