There are so many wonder workers out there aiding in moisture retention and rebalancing moisture levels. For us, it’s all about Barley EGF and Hyaluronic Acid. Together the two make for an impressively hydrating power duo.
Barley EGF is a moisture-binding, skin-rejuvenating signaling protein. It is the first of its kind to be produced in plants by BIOEFFECT scientists to combat the visible effects from the loss of EGF naturally found in skin. Barley EGF supports natural production of collagen, elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid, and is essential for keeping skin looking smooth, healthy, and youthful. It is a signaling protein, communicating with cells in the dermis. It sends messages to repair and rejuvenate while strengthening the skin’s ability to retain and withhold moisture.
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 skin’s natural collagen production to visibly improve skin density and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid is a vital substance naturally found in skin, and critical for maintaining skin hydration. Known for its incredible capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture. Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water, making it the optimal hydrator for all skin types. It also has restorative and soothing abilities.
