The intense power complex of only 12 ingredients includes our signature Barley EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor), Barley KGF (Keratinocyte Growth Factor), NAG (N-Acetyl Glucosamine), and Hyaluronic Acid, working in synergy towards healthier and smoother-looking skin. These are actives naturally found in skin that play a vital role in overall skin health. Together they deliver a strong anti-aging effect.
Barley EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor): A moisture-binding and skin-rejuvenating signaling protein, and the first of its kind to be produced in plants by ORF Líftækni scientists in Iceland. Barley EGF promotes water retention, reducing loss of fluids from the skin. Increased moisture levels maintain skin thickness and density, reducing the depth of wrinkles. Barley EGF helps support the skins natural collagen production to visibly improve skin density and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Barley KGF (Keratinocyte Growth Factor): A signaling protein, naturally found in skin. KGF naturally occurring in skin is produced by fibroblasts in the dermis and has the ability to stimulate keratinocytes in the epidermis to migrate, differentiate, and synthesize Hyaluronic Acid – and by that creating a stronger and more structured skin barrier. It has also been shown that KGF protects human keratinocytes from the toxicity of xenobiotics that have electrophilic and oxidative properties and protects against UV-radiation. KGF helps keep the skin barrier intact and healthy-looking. It has been shown to strengthen the skin and promote its natural repairing processes, protecting it from UV-radiation, chemical- and physical stress. KGF enhances the synthesis of Hyaluronic Acid.
N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG): This is a vegan, highly stable form of an amino sugar compound originally found in skin, located in the spaces between the skin cells, that is known to help support our natural Hyaluronic Acid production. NAG is a precursor to Hyaluronic Acid, so it is one of the building blocks of Hyaluronic Acid together with D-Glucuronic Acid. NAG easily penetrates the skin and has been shown to have various skin benefits. Studies have shown that it brightens the complexion and minimizes the appearance of hyperpigmentation. It inhibits the glycosylation of pro-tyrosinase to tyrosinase in melanocytes. With that, production of melanin is reduced in the skin, thereby improving hyperpigmentation and skin tone. NAG also has antioxidant benefits and helps maintain skin barrier integrity, elasticity, and addresses skin dryness by sealing in moisture and reduce water loss.
Hyaluronic Acid: A vital substance naturally found in skin, critical for maintaining skin hydration. Known for its incredible capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture. In fact it can hold up to 1.000 times its own weight in water, making it an optimal hydrator for all skin types. Hyaluronic Acid is also known for having restorative and soothing abilities. The EGF Power Serum features high-weight Hyaluronic Acid molecules to deliver immediate intensive hydration to the surface layers of the skin for an instant smoothing, plumping, and firming effect.
