A recent, independent, scientific study, led by Dr. Martina Kerscher, demonstrates the clear anti-aging effect of Icelandic skin care sensation BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM. A world-renowned expert on dermatology and cosmetic science, Dr. Kerscher heads the Division of Cosmetic Sciences at the University of Hamburg. The author/editor of numerous books and articles, she also co-edits two of Germany’s leading dermatology journals, Journal der Deutschen Dermatologischen Gesellschaft (JDDG) and Der Hautarzt. Dr. Kerscher presented the results of her study, to be published in a peer-reviewed, scientific journal, at the 12th Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress in Monaco earlier this year.
The unique scientific setup of the study was designed to specifically answer the question of whether the topical application of cellular activators can revitalize age-related changes in the skin.
Every woman participating in the study applied BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM to one half of her face and an identical product without the EGF cellular activator to the other half. The study ran for eight weeks, during which time participants applied the serum twice a day. To rule out any effect anticipation could have on results, the study was double-blinded, meaning that none of the women in the study, nor the scientists in charge of measuring results, knew which half was which. Efficacy was assessed by standardized photography and biophysical measurements to evaluate skin topography, density, and thickness.
"Skin thickness increased by more than 60% and skin density increased by more than 30% compared to baseline."
The results show that the depth of wrinkles decreased significantly compared to baseline after application of BIOEFFECT EGF SERUM over a period of two months. Furthermore, skin thickness increased by more than 60% and skin density increased by more than 30% compared to baseline.
Additionally, in a user perception study, women participating in the research reported a much higher user-satisfaction with the serum-containing the EGF than the serum without it. In particular, there was a significant difference in perception of elasticity, softness, and skin radiance.
"I am genuinely impressed with the results of our study as it clearly shows that applying plant-made, human-like EGF on the skin can have a significant anti-aging effect on skin thickness, density, and depth of wrinkles, after only eight weeks use.”
“With modern biotechnology it is now possible to copy the EGF which is present in our skin, in barley plants. I am genuinely impressed with the results of our study as it clearly shows that applying plant-made, human-like EGF on the skin can have a significant anti-aging effect on skin thickness, density, and depth of wrinkles, after only eight weeks use,” said Dr. Kerscher.
These remarkable results confirm the experience reported by thousands of BIOEFFECT users around the world. Following ten years of biotechnology research, BIOEFFECT launched its brand in 2011, relying primarily on satisfied customers’ word of mouth in its marketing efforts. BIOEFFECT fans regularly describe BIOEFFECT products as “skin care that really works.”
