The Breakthrough EGF Power Serum Has Arrived.

A drop of pure power. Introducing the next generation of age-defying serums. Here’s everything you need to know about the ingredients, benefits, and usage of this powerful and highly effective facial serum.

Introducing the next generation of age-defying serums.

It is with great pride that we introduce the EGF Power Serum – our next evolutionary product. This power product is specifically developed to intensely target visible signs of skin aging with the plant-powered technology of two barley-produced growth factors. Our efficacy studies show that the EGF Power Serum improves 5 key signs of skin aging.

Read on for the full details of the new and highly effective facial serum.

Sigrún Dögg M.D. about the product launch:

This is what Sigrún Dögg Guðjónsdóttir MD, the Chief of Research and Development at BIOEFFECT, has to say about the EGF Power Serum launch:

“We have taken age-defying growth factor skincare to a whole new level with the introduction of the EGF Power Serum – a truly progressive addition to our range. EGF Power Serum was developed for mature skin to strengthen the skin barrier and even skin tone while targeting main visible signs of aging.

BIOEFFECT's point of distinction lies in the growth factors, developed and produced by ORF Genetics in barley plants using progressive methods of biotechnology. The barley is grown in volcanic pumice and watered with pure Icelandic water in an ecologically engineered hi-tech greenhouse, located in the Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark. This highly advanced serum features not only our original superhero growth factor, Barley EGF, but also Barley KGF, along with Hyaluronic Acid and NAG. These effective agents are known to target the appearance of wrinkles, increase moisture, and decrease hyperpigmentation to name a few, making this innovative formula a potent skin treatment," Sigrún explains.

"Like all our products, EGF Power Serum features few, pure ingredients and only those that the skin needs and understands. As a result the EGF Power Serum is suitable for all skin types and genders, especially mature skin. You only need 2-4 drops of the potent serum to experience real and lasting visible results. The clinical trial shows us that the EGF Power Serum works to improve the skin long-term and improve its quality in multiple ways. We’re very proud of this product,” Sigrún concludes.

What is EGF Power Serum?

An intensive age-defying growth factor serum designed to support skin barrier function and brighten the complexion while targeting main visible signs of skin aging (including wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and dark spots, dryness, and skin thinning). The new and advanced formula in the world of age-defying skincare features a combination of only 12 pure ingredients, handpicked by our science team to deliver intense visible results.

The clear serum has a silky-smooth texture and absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving a sticky residue. Only 2-4 drops are needed for real results – and lasting benefits. We like to say it's the force of innovation in a drop.

What does EGF Power Serum do?

The potent facial serum enhances and strengthens skin barrier function while addressing skin concerns associated with aging, including improved skin conditioning (wrinkles, sagginess, crepiness, dryness, and more) and the appearance of UV-induced pigmentation.

What are the benefits of EGF Power Serum?

We performed clinical in-house scientific efficacy studies to confirm the benefits of our new power product. We measured the effect using the VISIA Skin Analysis System. 45 participants used the EGF Power Serum twice a day for 3 months. The unbelievable results demonstrated up to:

  • 73% decrease in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • 56% increase in skin elasticity, skin appeared firmer
  • 63% increase in skin density, skin looked plumper
  • 72% increase in skin hydration
  • 65% decrease in appearance of UV-induced pigmentation

What are the main ingredients, and what do they do?

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.

How and when to use EGF Power Serum?

For best results, apply 2-4 drops to face, neck, and décolleté, using circular, upwards motions. Apply in the morning and wait 3-5 minutes before applying a moisturizer, sunscreen, or makeup. Apply in the evening to clean skin for advanced skin repair while you sleep. Use on its own or layer with other BIOEFFECT products (like the EGF Power Cream for a true power routine!) for maximum effect.

The Power Routine.

The EGF Power Serum pairs perfectly with our EGF Power Cream for an intense power routine.

The two products can be used together for added nourishing benefits and a more intense age-defying routine if needed (depending on skin type, season, etc.).

Both Barley Beta Glucan, found in EGF Power Cream, and Barley KGF, found in EGF Power Serum, affect the skin barrier. Barley Beta Glucan aids in the skin barrier’s ability to seal in moisture whereas KGF helps keep it intact and healthy-looking. When used together, the EGF Power Serum and EGF Power Cream intensely affect the skin barrier by strengthening it and enhancing its ability to seal in moisture for added hydration to the skin.

By pairing NAG, found in the EGF Power Serum, with Niacinamide, found in the EGF Power Cream, you also visibly enhance overall complexion by targeting hyperpigmentation, evening skin tone, and increasing radiance.

As always, we recommend starting your routine off with the EGF Essence, our featherlight and silky-smooth facial essence. It perfectly preps the skin for the following skincare products, aids in their absorption, and enhances their efficacy. It's also specifically developed to maximize the efficacy of the Barley growth factors in BIOEFFECT serums and face creams. To further enhance your results, layer the Imprinting Hydrogel Mask on top of the EGF Power Serum. The face mask creates the perfect microenvironment for the Barley growth factors in the serum for maximum benefit.

Who is EGF Power Serum for?

The EGF Power Serum is vegan, hypoallergenic, and free from oil, fragrance, silicone, and alcohol, making it suitable for all skin types, genders, and ages. Even so, it is specifically suited for dry or mature skin, due to its powerful age-defying benefits. This makes it ideal for those already seeing signs of skin aging, wanting to intensely target them, and looking for profound results.

What is the difference between EGF Power Serum and EGF Serum?

The EGF Power Serum formula is more potent than the EGF Serum as it has a higher concentration of Barley EGF.

The EGF Power Serum formula also includes 2 barley growth factors, along with NAG for treating hyperpigmentation in the skin. The EGF Serum formula includes 1 barley growth factor, the EGF.

EGF Power Serum is ideal for those already seeing visible signs of skin aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, loss of density, and uneven skin tone, whereas the EGF Serum is very well suited to maintain skin condition or prevent visible signs of aging in skin. Those wanting a more intensely age-defying product may therefore look to the EGF Power Serum.
