Epigenetic Growth Factors
Growth factors are a set of molecules, mostly of protein nature, which act as cellular messengers. Combined with hormones and neurotransmitters, they play an important role in intercellular communication.
What are the principles of Growth Factors?
The most important of those are the EGF or Epidermal Growth Factors, a natural cell activator of human skin that accelerates the process of cell renewal and activity, which has been subject of study for a long time and earned Cohen and Levi–Montalcini the 1986 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.
The EGF works, together with other cell activators, as a messenger between the skin cells. EGF recognizes and binds a specific receptor of the superficial cells of the skin. This receiver receives the message and is responsible for transmitting it to the core of the cell through a complex system of signaling in cascade. Once in the nucleus, the message is translated into different cellular activities, causing the production of collagen and elastin in the skin.
Growth Factors have many benefits for your skin:
- - Redefine face contour
- - Tighten and redensify skin
- - Refine skin tone and restore skin luminosity
- - Visibly reduce expression lines and wrinkles; depth and diameter decrease up to 34%
