If you’re familiar with BIOEFFECT EGF means more to you than just random letters from the alphabet grouped together. And if you’re not, well honey, is your life about to change for the best. You’re about to be introduced to a time machine (in serum form) that’ll take that skin back to the snake-playing Nokia 3315 days.
BIOEFFECT was born when three Icelandic scientists discovered a way to bioengineer a plant- based human replica of EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) in barley plants, after over a decade of research.
Now, the science behind this brand is what makes it super unique. Biotechnology basically uses living organisms to develop or create different products. EGF is one of the most important growth factors in our skin. It helps to boost production of collagen and elastin to maintain healthy dense and youthful skin. Essentially, using EGF is kinda like giving our skin a little filler top-up without the gory stuff.
More on EGF
Our bodies produce huge amounts of growth factors from birth up until adulthood. It’s up to these growth factors to have a good old chat with our cells, telling them to repair and rejuvenate our skin. As we age and reach maturity, production of growth factors decreases, meaning our cells have a smaller team whipping them into shape. This is basically how and why our skin shows signs of ageing; less growth factors = less communication to cells = more fine lines and wrinkles, ugh.
Putting their name on the map with the award-winning EGF serum, BIOEFFECT is the world’s first brand to use plant-based EGF. Previously, EGF has either been grown in bacteria (just sounds gross, and is actually dangerous), or extracted from human or animal cells (not cute, someone call PETA). 😳
The EGF Serum - Proven results
Ok, my favourite part, why you MUST add the EGF serum to your skincare routine. If the above wasn’t enough, let’s dive into the results. A study conducted on 29 women using the BIOEFFECT EGF serum twice daily for 2 months, saw a 30% increase in skin density, 60% increase in skin thickness. Springy, trampoline goodness achieved in just 2 months; sign me up!
This little bottle of potion is so effective, you only need to apply 2-4 drops to your face and neck after cleansing before you hit the hay. Free of all nasties, the EGF serum only contains 7 ingredients, making it fragrance-free, alcohol-free, oil-free and preservative-free.
