The anti-ageing serum everyone's talking about. The world's first skin care serum based on plant-produced Epidermal Growth Factor: BIOEFFECT EGF Serum .
The culmination of more than a decade of research by biotech scientists in Iceland, BIOEFFECT EGF Serum's award-winning* formula utilises Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) to help support ageing, dull and dry skin for a fresher, revitalised and younger-looking appearance.
Well known to scientists, Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) has been heralded as the future of anti-ageing. Predicted to be "a breakthrough in skin care" in July 2011 by Dr Ronald L. Moy, president of the American Academy of Dermatology, the discovery of Epidermal Growth Factor and its effect on cell renewal won biochemists Stanley Cohen and Rita Levi-Montalcini the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1986. Now, After decades of research, this naturally occurring skin protein is being used in BIOEFFECT EGF Serum to help stimulate the skin's own repair process while encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. The result: skin appears more even-toned, hydrated and radiant.
Unlike traditional methods that use animal cells, bacteria and yeast to create EGF, BIOEFFECT has created the first EFG produced in plants. Produced in Iceland, BIOEFFECT EGF Serum is unique in its use of barley in the production of its EGF cellular activators. The barley is grown in volcanic ash and watered with spring water. Consequently, BIOEFFECT can claim its EGF Serum contains no endotoxins or other unwanted contaminants and is less likely to cause allergies.
Who needs night cream and eye cream when one potent serum does it all?
Morning and night, BIOEFFECT EGF Serum can be used on the face, around the eyes and eyelids and even on the body. Particularly effective on dry and ageing skin, BIOEFFECT EGF Serum contains only nine ingredients**, including hydrating hyaluronic acid, and contains no hidden surprises. No wonder 20,000 women snapped it up within six months of its launch in Iceland***.
