There’s a new It ingredient rising up the skincare ranks and it’s called Epidermal Growth Factor or EGF for short. But what does EGF do for your skin and how does it work? The go-to for dermatologists thanks to its collagen-stimulating, dark spot brightening, under-eye depuffing, and wrinkle-combatting properties, EGF skincare has now become a firm favorite with celebrities, influencers, and beauty editors as an integral step in their daily routines. Discover everything you need to know about EGF skin benefits here...
“Epidermal growth factor is a reparative ingredient that signals to cells to boost collagen and elastin production. Glo has formulated vegan synthetic EGF for a clean take on this breakthrough technology," explains Dr. Dendy Engelman, NYC board-certified dermatologist.
What Is Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) in Skincare?
Epidermal Growth Factor for skin was the first growth factor to be studied. The scientists who discovered it only 30 years ago, won a Nobel Prize for their work, making it one of the most innovative ingredients in the skincare world right now.
Growth factors are immensely important for the regulation of cell processes in the human body. And, as its name suggests, epidermal growth factor relates to the epidermis—the top layer of skin. EGF stimulates cells in the skin called fibroblasts, which produce collagen and elastin to clarify, thicken, and tighten skin. As you age, your EGF decreases and so too does skin’s elasticity, leading to signs of aging such as dullness, wrinkles, lines, and general skin-sagging.
A solution to tackling these factors? Step forward our vegan epidermal growth factor serum and moisturizer. “Epidermal growth factor is a reparative ingredient that signals to cells to boost collagen and elastin production. This helps with cellular repair and renewal, resulting in a more radiant, youthful complexion,” explains Dr. Dendy.
Combined with plant stem cells, to work in synergy with your skin, both our EGF serum and moisturizer activate natural EGF receptors and accelerate epidermal regeneration. And, our Bio-Renew EGF Cream also contains phyto-retinols too for added benefits.
“Phyto-retinols are plant-based retinol alternatives that improve skin barrier function and stimulate collagen production—like traditional retinols but without the sensitizing or irritation to the skin," adds Dr. Dendy.
The results speak for themselves. “Clinical testing showed a significant reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and redness, as well as a significant improvement in skin tone, texture, firmness, and radiance after 30 days of use.”
The Ultimate Anti-Aging EGF Face Cream
Formulated in partnership with leading NYC dermatologist, Dr. Dendy Engelman, our new Bio-Renew EGF Cream is a next-generation, skin barrier repairing treatment moisturizer. Powered by vegan EGF and a phyto-retinol complex to optimize skin’s natural renewal processes, this powerhouse moisturizer is clinically proven to deliver stronger, brighter, smoother, and firmer skin in just one month.
“This cream is the ultimate in restoring strength to the skin. It revitalizes and stimulates skin barrier repair. Not only does it reverse damage over time, it also aids in post-treatment wound recovery from IPL, laser, microneedling, peels, and more," shares Dr. Dendy.
“The vegan EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) has clinical proof at both one week and one month, where volunteers attested to markedly increase in skin softness, brightening and less visible wrinkles. The formula also is rich in plant-based retinol alternatives which achieve results very similar to that of retinol and other vitamin A derivatives without the irritating side effects. They also deliver a dose of antioxidants and ceramides to combat free radical damage and support a strong skin barrier.”
How should EGF be used?
“This cream can be safely used in both the a.m. and p.m., making it a great addition to a daily firming and repairing skincare routine. Our clinical trials proved a reduction in spots, fine lines, and wrinkles—which is the goal, while keeping the skin calm, eliminating reactive sensitivity and irritation. Used in the evening, it will also ensure greater results, as skin is more regenerative when we sleep,” adds Dr. Dendy.
Double-down on the power of EGF by pairing this cream with your Bio-Renew EGF Drops too for all the smoothing, firming, reparative action.
The Ultimate Anti-Aging EGF Serum
Clinically proven to restore the skin’s protective barrier, increase skin density, and improve texture in just one week—with increased efficacy after one month, our epidermal growth factor serum boasts some seriously transformative clinical results.
Combating aging and strengthening your skin without stripping its moisture Bio-Renew EGF Drops combine three powerhouse ingredients, for the ultimate skin-nourishing cocktail.
100% Vegan Epidermal Growth Factor: Accelerates collagen and elastin production. Stimulating the growth of new skin cells, EGF also protects your skin by allowing moisture to absorb faster and deeper, which ultimately makes your skin smoother and softer. Vegan EGF also inhibits melanin production, so it improves acne marks and other forms of hyperpigmentation.
Multipeptide Complex: These bio-active peptides reinforce your skin’s barrier to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles while firming and stimulating repair. Peptides help achieve wrinkle reduction by inhibiting muscle contraction and signaling collagen synthesis, which, unlike botox injections or other invasive treatments, is a convenient and natural option.
Hyaluronic Acid: If you don’t already know how effective hyaluronic acid is for the skin, here’s a refresher. It holds up to 1000 times its own weight in water. Hyaluronic acid - much like collagen, gradually decreases as we age with exposure to UV rays and environmental aggressors like pollution. Combining hyaluronic acid with EGF creates the ultimate serum that replenishes moisture while helping you achieve the ultimate glow.
If you’re not convinced yet, here are our top reviews from customers like you:
“I’ve been lacking my usual facials in quarantine so when I say these drops have been a lifesaver, I’m talking about results outside of my normally high maintenance routine. I use these nightly full strength and mixed with an antioxidant serum during the day and the glow and evenness is unreal. Even my dermatologist commented on my skin’s healthy radiance and even tone without makeup after 4 months between visits. These are a must.”
