EGF Advantages for Younger Skin.
EGF is renowned for its unique efficacy and potency, but are there advantages for younger skin? At what age should age-defying skincare become a consideration? Can skin that has yet to form its first fine line also benefit from the proven effects of EGF products? We discussed the subject with Dr. Björn Örvar, Executive Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer of BIOEFFECT, who had several thoughts about skin ageing and the advantages of EGF skincare for younger skin. Read on for our interview below.
Q: The EGF Prevent collection targets younger skin, but how young is young?
A: The fact is, we start to age alarmingly early in life - already in our twenties, we can observe the first signs of skin ageing. From birth until adulthood, our bodies manufacture copious amounts of various growth factors that affect the growth of everything from bones to organs to nerves to skin. But when we reach maturity, production diminishes. As a result, cell turnover and repair slows, eventually affecting our health and appearance. Skin density thins by 1% every year after we turn 20, and skin density is reduced by up to 30% during menopause. Therefore, the question is, can specific products postpone skin ageing? It’s important to understand that the aging processes are very similar in their nature, whether in young or more mature skin – as we age our skin produce less and less EGF. With application of BIOEFFECT’s serums, skin receives a plant-based EGF that can be used to reduce the visible signs of ageing, and are appropriate for people at a young age as well as for people who want to maintain or visibly repair more mature skin. As we are saying: “Your skin knows best: our product empowers its voice”.
