All stem cells are undifferentiated cells. This means that they are not skin cells, bloods cells, etc. They have no type and perform no function in the body.
Stem cells taken from adults can only become certain types of cells. Because of this, their effectiveness in treating various health problems is limited.
Embryonic stem cells can become any type of cell.
