The EGF cellular activator occurs naturally in the human skin. When applied topically, the skin cells recognise the EGF cellular activator and initiate a molecular process as soon as the EGF connects and binds itself to a receptor on their outer surface. The BIOEFFECT EGF Serum hence utilises the skin cells’ own properties to revitalise and rejuvenate.
The Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Stanley Cohen and Rita Levi-Montalcini in 1986 for their extensive research into the role of the EGF cellular activator in cell biology. Since then, multiple studies have confirmed EGF's and other cellular activators’ great potential in cosmetics. This research forms the basis of the use of EGF in skin care products.
