It is the first serum to feature a plant-based EGF produced in barley using a process invented by BIOEFFECT scientists. Our Barley EGF is a sustainable, renewable ingredient produced in our high-tech greenhouse powered by geothermal energy.

BIOEFFECT EGF Serum is designed to target visible signs of aging and rejuvenate the skin’s complexion with just 2-4 drops daily. External and in-house studies show a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and visible improvements in the firmness of skin.
Apply 2-4 drops to the face and neck on clean skin, for best results use 2x per day (e.g., day and night). You can maximize results, by adding in additional EGF skincare products, as Barley EGF does its best work in a moisture-rich environment. Try adding the EGF Essence or OSA Water Mist prior to applying the EGF Serum or add the Imprinting Hydrogel Mask on top after applying the serum.

Yes, many users prefer to apply the serum on clean skin in the morning and some use it both day and night. It is advisable not to apply makeup or any other products within 10 minutes of using BIOEFFECT EGF Serum, as it may interfere with the EGF. The serum does not contain any sun protection, so we do recommend using a sunscreen to protect from harmful UV rays. If you find the EGF Serum leaves more of a residue or sticky feeling than you would like during the day, try our EGF Day Serum which is a lighter weight formulation.
You do not need to use both the EGF Serum and EGF Day Serum, it is a matter of preference. We created the EGF Day Serum as a lighter weight formulation, more suitable to daytime use under makeup. However, many customers prefer the original EGF Serum and use it both morning and night. However, we do recommend for best results, to apply our EGF Serums 2x per day.
