But What Is EGF?
EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) is a protein that is naturally produced in our skin. From birth until adulthood, our bodies produce these skin-replenishing and signaling proteins called growth factors and they communicate with cells; sending messages to repair and rejuvenate. We like to think of them as musical conductors instructing all the different cells how and when to perform. EGF is one of the most important growth factors in our skin and plays a vital role in the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to maintain skin’s healthy, dense, and youthful appearance.
If we imagine a baby’s skin, it is so thick and plump, because it is full of EGF. Once we reach our twenties, the natural production of EGF decreases and dramatically declines in our forties. As a result, cell turnover and repair slow, eventually affecting our appearance – skin starts to sag, and fine lines and wrinkles appear.
At BIOEFFECT, we utilised revolutionary science to bioengineer a plant-based replica of human EGF in barley. Our Barley EGF was developed to combat the loss of the EGF found naturally in our skin as we age. Countless in-house scientific studies have shown the cosmetic benefits of Barley EGF to boost hydration, improve visible skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It has even been shown to help support skin’s natural collagen production to keep it looking smooth, healthy, and youthful. It is sustainably grown in barley plants making it safer, purer, and more stable – the perfect choice for clean, healthy skincare.
