Epidermal growth factors are a fairly new hot ingredient in skincare, which help to promote healing, as well as collagen and elastin production.
Any sort of trauma or wound that occurs on the skin needs to heal, and this process is triggered by the Growth Factor proteins in our body. Growth Factors communicate on the cellular level to tell your body that it needs to repair and regenerate. When your body is repairing and regenerating, it is building new collagen and elastin, which are what make your skin plump, bouncy, and smooth.
As we age, we lose collagen and elastin, as well the amount of growth factor in our bodies decreases. This is when visible signs of aging appear like loss of firmness, wrinkles, age spots, and decrease in elasticity.
Using a product with an Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) like a serum, delivers a high concentration of nutrients to the skin. Using something with EGF is extremely important if you are getting a chemical peel, as EGF will help to support your skin in it's healing process. However, EGF does not need to be used solely after a controlled trauma to the skin. It can be used daily in your regimen in combination with your other products to help you to prevent a premature aging process.
There are Growth Factors in a variety of products that we recommend, namely the Growth Factor Gel, which is ideal for oily or impure skins, the Growth Factor Serum
, which is for drier skins, the Growth Factor Serum Plus, which contains shark cartilage as an added boost, and Elite EGF
which contains Growth Factors in a hydrating cream form.
If you're looking for a way to incorporate another anti-aging boost into your routine, please consider Growth Factors. Have you ever tried them before? What did you think?
