Application of EGF to aging skin will support natural skin cell rejuvenation and revitalization, which otherwise decrease with age. This protein also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the overall tone and texture of the skin.
What is a growth factor? Growth factors, also known as cytokines, are naturally occurring proteins capable of stimulating cellular proliferation and cellular differentiation. Growth factors bind to specific receptors on the cell surfaces and are important for the regulation of a variety of cellular processes. EGF was the first growth factor to be discovered and studied. In 1986, Stanley Cohen received the Nobel Prize for his work showing the role of the Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) in the regulation of cell growth and development. EGF is a growth factor that plays an important role in the regulation of cell growth, cell proliferation and differentiation. This is one of the specialty proteins made by Skin Actives Scientific using biotechnology. Please note that our growth factors are sold for use in cosmetics only.
