Stem Cell Therapy Featured in The Rose Sheet

Company Continues to Pursue Distribution Partners

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - December 16, 2009) - Stem Cell Therapy International Inc. (OTCBB: SCII) announced that it has been featured in the December 14 issue of The Rose Sheet, a weekly publication focused on the toiletries, fragrance and skin care industries. The article details the Company's agreement with Histostem Ltd. of South Korea ("Histostem") for the exclusive worldwide distribution rights to SteMixx, a stem cell-based facial cream and may be accessed by visiting the investor page of Stem Cell Therapy's website at:

SCII will begin marketing SteMixx internationally beginning in the first quarter of 2010. As part of the product rollout, the Company is exploring partnership opportunities that will enable it to create an optimal international distribution network.

Earlier this month SCII announced the terms of its agreement with Histostem Ltd. for the exclusive distribution rights to the Company's existing SteMixx line of stem cell-based cosmetic products, as well as future products under development. Previously available for purchase only in Korea, SteMixx received approval last month from the Korean FDA as an effective cosmetic for the treatment of aging skin. SCII will seek similar product validations from regulatory agencies in the United States and Europe.

"SteMixx is a unique facial skin care product that combines the regenerative qualities of important proteins derived from umbilical cord stem cells with a naturally occurring nucleoside that has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and tissue repair properties. In short, the proteins within SteMixx work with an individual's stem cells to revitalize the skin. These attributes, combined with our scientific formulations of natural plant extracts, make SteMixx a very powerful agent in the fight against the effects of aging on the skin," explains Dr. Hoon Han, President of Histostem and the inventor of SteMixx.

He added, "The source of the stem cells used to create SteMixx is non-controversial umbilical cord blood from documented, consenting donors under the highest degree of medical care and scientific processing."

David Stark, President of SCII, commented, "We are seeking appropriate distribution partners for the worldwide launch of SteMixx, which is currently being produced at Histostem's manufacturing facility in South Korea. SteMixx may be marketed as a branded luxury cosmetic product or as a repackaged private label product depending on the needs of our distribution partners."

He added, "The Korean FDA approval has validated this product in the Korean market as a 'functional cosmetic' for the treatment of wrinkles and the effects of aging on the skin. We expect that this approval, combined with our Company's proven experience in the science and technology of stem cells, and the establishment of an efficient distribution network, will provide excitement to the launch and sustained momentum for the popularity of this product."
