As we age, our skin deteriorates with the reduction of EGF production, collagen, elastin fibers and hyaluronic acid content. This leads to a slower cell renewal process, loss of firmness and poorer moisture-binding capability for the skin. Therefore, the skin becomes thinner, weaker and full of wrinkles. This premium line with an innovative combination of ingredients can help counteract all of these. EGF accelerates skin cell renewal to minimize the appearance of wrinkles while AquaMAX™ keeps the skin well hydrated and prevents moisture loss. Biodroga Anti-Age EGF/R with Nobel Prize technology provides intensive support for the skin's restructuring.
Researchers Stanley Cohen and Rita Levi-Montalcini won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1986 for the discovery of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) and its functions. This was followed by numerous studies on the EGF and its potential benefits for cosmetic products. While peptide combinations are highly effective when it comes to delaying many signs of premature skin aging and are now incorporated into lots of serums and creams, EGF is the ingredient that is getting all the attention lately.
BiodrogaMD™ has integrated a synthetic, nature-identical replica of the human EGF into this premium skincare line as its main ingredient. EGF and oligopeptides are encapsulated in liposomes which have an average size of just 140 nm. This allows them to penetrate deeply into the skin for maximum effect.
How It Works
EGF is a messenger substance that boosts cell renewal. When EGF is applied to the skin, special receptors recognize the bio-identical EGF and sends a signal to produce collagen and new skin cells. As a result, skin becomes smoother, firmer and more elastic.
AquaMAX™ is an innovative ingredient that supplies the skin with even more moisture than hyaluronic acid. It is based on amino acids and was originally extracted from soybeans. Today, AquaMAX™ is produced in a controlled fermentation process from bacterial strains. The 2 different variations optimize the natural moisturizing factor (NMF) and at the same time protect the skin from moisture loss.
High-molecular AquaMAX™ HM supplies the skin with long-lasting moisture instantly and boosts the skin's elasticity.
Low-molecular AquaMAX™ LM protects hyaluronic acid from leaving the epidermis, optimizes the skin's structure and reduces undesirable immune effects associated with photoaging.
Derma Membrane Complex (DMC), included in the 24h Care and Eye Care, is a basic component of modern skincare products. The structure and function of DMC are very similar to the human skin, which means that the skin can absorb these formulas efficiently.
