International Stem Cell Corporation Announces the Launch of Two New International Sales Initiatives for Lifeline Skin Care

International Stem Cell Corporation (OTCBB:ISCO) today announced two new international marketing initiatives. The first is the successful conclusion of an agreement in principle to distribute its Lifeline Skin Care product line in the United Arab Emirates via a strategic relationship with noted facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Gregory S. Keller MD of Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, CA. The second is the engagement of Dr. K. McIsaac who will distribute Lifeline's products in Australia and New Zealand under Lifeline's own brand name. These agreements mark the first time that Lifeline Skin Care has distributed its products overseas. Currently, Lifeline Skin Care products are sold in the United States through the Company's website

The UAE represents an attractive market of some 4.3 million people, of which nearly 75% are expatriates. This cosmopolitan market is one of the most urbanized nations in the world with about 88% of its population living in cities. It has one of the highest per capita incomes in the world and an annual GDP growth rate at 8.8%.

"I am excited to introduce Lifeline Skin Care products to the UAE, and I am confident that our customers there will enjoy the same kind of satisfaction with the products as many of my patients in the United States report," said Dr. Keller. "Many of my American patients have been using these products since they were introduced on the market earlier this year, and the results they've seen are amazing."
Dr. Ruslan Semechkin, CEO of Lifeline Skin Care commented: "Dr. Keller has been a faithful supporter of our developmental and commercial efforts in the United States, and he has witnessed the dramatic benefits enjoyed by our customers. We are pleased that he has offered to bring the benefits of Lifeline to the people of UAE.

"In choosing Dr. McIsaac and his marketing team, we believe we will be able to rapidly grow sales and better serve the Australia and New Zealand markets. Dr. McIsaac brings a wealth of experience in direct to consumer sales and marketing. Together these agreements are a key part of our strategy to internationalize our brand."

Lifeline® Skin Care is the only skin care line that is based on human parthenogenetic stem cells that stimulate your skin's own abilities to repair itself. Lifeline products are sold in pairs, including a day cream and a night cream. A complete set is sufficient for one month of regular use.

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). hpSCs avoid ethical issues associated with the use or destruction of viable human embryos. ISCO scientists have created the first parthenogenic, 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, and cell-based skin care products through its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care.
