E.G.F. is Epidermal Growth Factor
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) is a protein the catalyzes the healing process by causing epidermal and epithelial cells to divide and grow. EGF is the most potent mitogenic mitosis inducing agent in the skin. Skin constantly produces and uses EGF, even more so if skin is damaged.
This exclusive formula with ground breaking bioengineered human growth factor (EGF) is a radical quick start to speed up cell renewal at the molecular level, to improve the skin from the inside out. EGF has been the single most important substance for development and maintenance of both the epidermis and the dermis.
The advantage of EGF is that due to its natural presence in the dermis and epidermis it can be topically applied to achieve immediate visible improvement in the quality of the skin. EGF is used successfully in clinical applications including post operative healing, scars and keloid reduction.
Growth Factors are proven to enhance epidermal growth and keratinization. They directly stimulate the proliferation of epidermal cells through a response by receptors on the cell membrane. This initiates activities that eventually progress to cell division and proliferation. The problem for women is that epidermal growth factors (EGF) are androgen-dependent and the low level of androgen in females results in a lack of EGF, potentially allowing skin to age more quickly.
