Prevent and Repair the Effects of Aging Skin.
Epidermal Growth Factor, or EGF, is fast becoming one of the hottest skin care ingredients in creams, serums, and lotions. It's quite simply one of the best ingredients if you are wanting to reduce wrinkles, brighten skin, and improve elasticity and firmness.
What is EGF?
In simple terms, EGF is a short protein sometimes called a poly peptide that stimulates cell growth and development and healing. It is naturally occurring and found in the skin’s fibroblast cells. For a deeper technical explanation, watch the video below.
What Are The Benefits of EGF for Skincare?
Some of the earliest work with EGF involved inducing rapid wound healing. The epidermis is the outer layer of your skin. EGF binds to the EGF receptor (EGFR) signalling for an increase in cell activity, which results in rapid growth and healing. When you apply EGF to damaged or wounded skin, it attracts cells that accelerate the healing process.
After about the age of 20, EGF levels in our bodies decline, leading to slower healing. Skin becomes thinner, dryer, and loses elasticity. By using EGF in skincare products, you can make up for the loss to help reverse many of the effects of aging or damaged skin. EGF increases the thickness of skin by as much as 60%, helps with keeping in moisture by tightening and firming and increasing collagen and elastin to rebuild the structure of the skin. It literally seems to promote the growth of younger skin, which of course is what you expect from a top anti aging substance.
