What Is BIOEFFECT Biotech Skincare?

BIOEFFECT biotech skincare explained: everything you need to know about the processes, ingredients, and benefits to your skin.


Skincare has come a long way in the past few years. A major advancement has become evident in the field of science-based or biotech skincare. Biotech skincare involves the use of advanced technology to create products that deliver proven results. Read on for a comprehensive guide!

What is biotechnology?

Biotechnology is a field of science that combines biology and technology in order to develop or improve products or processes. It involves the application of scientific and engineering principles to living organisms, cells, or their components in order to produce new products, processes, and technologies that can benefit human beings, animals, and the environment.

BIOEFFECT skincare and biotechnology.

BIOEFFECT was born out of a true love for science and a dedication to ensuring that the science is implemented in the most effective way possible. The brand was built when three Icelandic scientists managed to develop, after over a decade of research, a way to bioengineer plant-based EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) from barley plants.

From the beginning, our mission has been to use biotechnology to restore and maintain skin’s health and vitality with only the necessary ingredients, that are proven to be effective, and truly effective advancements in biotech skincare. We have a dedicated team of scientists that are continually expanding their research of skin cells, growth factors, and innovative ingredients in a quest to maximize the benefits of a BIOEFFECT EGF skincare routine.

How does biotechnology transfer to our skincare?

In skincare, biotechnology is used to create skincare ingredients that are produced in a controlled environment, for example a greenhouse or a lab, but are identical to what is found in nature and with a lower environmental impact.

The beauty industry has been evolving in this direction for some time. With growing knowledge in the field and a consumer that is becoming more and more informed, it has been inevitable that biotech would become a valuable tool in the production of ingredients in skincare. As the technology advances, we can expect to see more innovative ingredients and formulations that are based on clinical research, findings, and knowledge and truly harness the power of science to improve skin health and appearance.

Today’s consumer is more informed and interested in science than ever before and many go to great lengths to understand the underlying science behind the products they use.

What are other benefits of biotechnology in BIOEFFECT skincare & the industry as a whole? What about sustainability?

One beneficial aspect of using biotech ingredients in skincare is to minimize the impact on the environment needed to produce these products. The demand for natural ingredients is outstripping supply. This is where biotechnology offers an alternative solution. Natural resources are limited while biotechnology offers infinite possibilities; preserves biodiversity and creates a circular production process to avoid diluting nature of its treasures. Science, and biotech as part of it, should serve an ultimate goal: the restoration of resources with a climate positive impact.

What can BIOEFFECT biotech products and ingredients do for skin?

Ingredients that are produced by using biotechnology are recognized by nature. In simple terms, the human skin recognizes these ingredients as being something that the skin can easily understand. The controlled conditions, in which the biotech ingredients are produced, also ensure safety, purity and the same quality of ingredient from batch to batch.
