BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM AND WHY WE LOVE IT!


Hello Beauty Lovers!

I am sooooo excited to be reaching out to you with this: FINALLY! We have BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM available in our e-shop!

This is my personal favourite hero product that I cannot live without - as my friends will tell you because I talk about it a LOT!

I have extremely sensitive skin and and switching skin care regimens or trying different products has oftentimes set off flaming, redness, the list goes on.... followed by weeks and sometimes months of trying to flush out which product is causing the irritation. This one serum has been like heaven for my face. It always fixes any issues I have from trying new products... since I can’t seem to stop myself.... and keeps my skin hydrated and smooth all year round. It is meant to be used at bedtime but I always take a drop and mix it with my sunscreen in the am. 

If you already know about this innovative Icelandic skin care line you know that the brand is dedicated to effective, transformative, truly hydrating skin care is not created by marketing departments, unpronounceable ingredients, expensive packaging, or outdated technology, but by cutting-edge science and a radically new approach.  

And if you do not know about this magical serum and want to know more about EGF then keep reading below...

 

 

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY......


BIOEFFECT was founded by three geneticists who spent ten years developing a method for creating biorisk-free recombinant proteins in plants for use in medical research. They founded BIOEFFECT when they discovered a way to bio-engineer a plant-based replica of EGF, a naturally occurring human protein, in barley. This is used by over 30% of Icelandic women since its launch in 2010, BIOEFFECT continues to astound users, regardless of age, gender, race, or skin colour. 

 

 

WHAT IS EGF?

In the past thirty years, science has made significant breakthroughs on the molecular and genetic level, some of which answer crucial questions about our own biology. Have you ever asked yourself how does an infant’s skin grow so fast without breaking? Or, why do people develop wrinkles? Or, how do skin cells repair damaged skin? If you have, then you’ve touched on the subject of growth factors.

Every living thing—people, animals, plants, fungi, and bacteria—grows. But cells don’t just automatically multiply: in humans and animals, cells respond to instruction from highly specialized proteins or hormones called growth factors. Named for their function, growth factors were discovered by two scientists who were awarded the 1986 Nobel Prize for their work.

Growth factors are cellular activators: they are signal molecules that communicate with cells, sending a message to repair, rejuvenate, or proliferate. Hundreds of different growth factors control the more than 300 cell types in humans. They’re the crucial foremen on the construction site that is your body’s development, and they work at full capacity for years. From birth until adulthood, our bodies manufacture copious amounts of various growth factors that affect the growth of everything from bones to organs to nerves to skin. But when we reach maturity, production diminishes. As a result, cell turnover and repair slows, eventually affecting our health and appearance. In fact, our skin gets thinner by 1% each year after we turn 20, and five years after menopause, our skin becomes 30% thinner.

 

“The result is healthier, denser, more hydrated, younger-looking skin”

 

Since 1986, medical research into growth factors has exploded. Huge breakthroughs include life-saving treatments such as the use of G-CSF, a growth factor that induces the production of white blood cells after chemotherapy. EGF, or epidermal growth factor, helps burn victims grow new skin and speed wound recovery. 

But EGF may also be used to replenish the body’s own supply, which diminishes with age. EGF application stimulates the body’s own skin cells to proliferate, increasing skin turnover and radiance while slowing the aging process. It boosts production of collagen and elastin, the skin’s bouncy scaffolding, increasing tone and elasticity. It boosts the skin’s capacity to store water and reduce water loss. The result is healthier, denser, more hydrated,  younger-looking skin.

 

“By engineering barley's own genetic code for growth so that it most resembles human EGF, BIOEFFECT created barley-based EGF”

 

In scientific research, EGF has been grown in bacteria, but this poses a risk of endotoxins for humans. Other means of obtaining EGF present ethical, moral, and legal issues, as in the use of human cells. After many years of research, the scientists at BIOEFFECT pioneered an astounding method of growing a plant-based replica of EGF in barley. By engineering barley’s own genetic code for growth so that it most resembles human EGF, BIOEFFECT created barley-based EGF. Because barley is self-pollinating, there is no risk of cross-breeding. In addition to being safe, pure, and efficient, BIOEFFECT’s EGF is grown in a carbon emissions-free greenhouse in inert volcanic pumice.

 

 

SPLIT-FACE STUDY CONFIRMS BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM'S REMARKABLE EFFICACY

 

A recent, independent, scientific study, led by Dr. Martina Kerscher, demonstrates the clear anti-aging effect of Icelandic skin care

sensation BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM. A world-renowned expert on dermatology and cosmetic science, Dr. Kerscher heads the Division of Cosmetic Sciences at the University of Hamburg. The author/editor of numerous books and articles, she also co-edits two of Germany’s leading dermatology journals, Journal der Deutschen Dermatologischen Gesellschaft (JDDG) and Der Hautarzt. Dr. Kerscher presented the results of her study, to be published in a peer-reviewed, scientific journal, at the 12th Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress in Monaco earlier this year.

The unique scientific setup of the study was designed to specifically answer the question of whether the topical application of cellular activators can revitalize age-related changes in the skin.

Every woman participating in the study applied BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM to one half of her face and an identical product without the EGF cellular activator to the other half. The study ran for eight weeks, during which time participants applied the serum twice a day. To rule out any effect anticipation could have on results, the study was double-blinded, meaning that none of the women in the study, nor the scientists in charge of measuring results, knew which half was which. Efficacy was assessed by standardized photography and biophysical measurements to evaluate skin topography, density, and thickness.

 

 

"Skin thickness increased by more than 60% and skin density increased by more than 30% compared to baseline."

 

The results show that the depth of wrinkles decreased significantly compared to baseline after application of BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM over a period of two months. Furthermore, skin thickness increased by more than 60% and skin density increased by more than 30% compared to baseline.

Additionally, in a user perception study, women participating in the research reported a much higher user-satisfaction with the serum-containing the EGF than the serum without it. In particular, there was a significant difference in perception of elasticity, softness, and skin radiance.

 

"I am genuinely impressed with the results of our study as it clearly shows that applying plant-made, human-like EGF on the skin can have a significant anti-aging effect on skin thickness, density, and depth of wrinkles, after only eight weeks use.”

 

“With modern biotechnology it is now possible to copy the EGF which is present in our skin, in barley plants. I am genuinely impressed with the results of our study as it clearly shows that applying plant-made, human-like EGF on the skin can have a significant anti-aging effect on skin thickness, density, and depth of wrinkles, after only eight weeks use,” said Dr. Kerscher.  

 

These remarkable results confirm the experience reported by thousands of BIOEFFECT users around the world. Following ten years of biotechnology research, BIOEFFECT launched its brand in 2011, relying primarily on satisfied customers’ word of mouth in its marketing efforts. BIOEFFECT fans regularly describe BIOEFFECT products as “skin care that really works.”

The unique scientific setup of the study was designed to specifically answer the question of whether the topical application of cellular activators can revitalize age-related changes in the skin.
