BIOEFFECT´S Guide to Winter Skincare.

With their long, cold, dark winters, Icelanders know the havoc winter can wreak on the skin. Iceland is also home to mercurial weather: a popular saying goes, if you don’t like the weather, wait ten minutes.

Icelandic Ethos.

But harsh weather has also shaped the Icelandic ethos, which includes an appreciation for simple, essential pleasures, whether that means meditating, scheduling me-time, or pampering your skin. Cold weather is drying, aging, and can cause redness and irritation, even scaling and fissuring. Arid indoor environments are dehydrating, increasing fragility. Exposure to winter sun can cause pigmentation, and global pollution levels have undeniably adverse dermatological effects. Winter is a time to be vigilant, but with BIOEFFECT, skincare is easy, pure, and effective.

As a company founded by scientists, BIOFFECT’s focus is on hydrated, radiant, and youthful-looking skin. Our barley based EGF products prevent moisture loss and encourage skin cell turnover. We don’t believe in complicated, twelve-step skincare routines: simply apply EGF products to clean, dry skin and wait 3-5 minutes before applying makeup or sun protection. In addition, BIOEFFECT rejects unnecessary additives: our products do not contain alcohol, fragrance, oils, or parabens, and we derive our hyaluronic acid from non-animal sources.

BIOEFFECT: Your Skin’s Best Friend and Secret Weapon against Winter Damage.

EGF Serum

Our classic bestseller, BIOEFFECT EGF Serum restores moisture levels while signalling skin cells to increase turnover. Use at the end of the day, applying to the face and neck.

30 Day Treatment

Bootcamp for the skin: three growth factors work synergistically to restore hydration while minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, addressing both the inner and outer layers of the skin.



A necessity for urban dwellers and anyone concerned about environmental damage, BIOEFFECT EGF + 2A contains EGF and hyaluronic acid. The two-part treatment also harnesses the free radical fighting power of ferulic and azelaic acids.

EGF Day Serum

A lightweight formulation, BIOEFFECT Day Serum is specifically designed for daytime use. Its dry finish makes it ideal as primer under makeup or sun protection.

EGF Eye Serum

Powerful revitalizing formula specifically developed to target the delicate eye area. With its stainless steel roller applicator it reduces the look of under-eye puffiness and restores radiance.

EGF Eye Mask Treatment

The thinnest and most fragile skin of your face, the eye area is the first to exhibit signs of aging. Hydrogel patches provide extra TLC while sealing in EGF’s benefits.

Body Intensive

Cold weather exacerbates the body’s drier areas, such as elbows, knees, and heels. Absorbing quickly, this silky formula is effective on those areas as well as larger ones, including the arms, legs, and décolletage.
