Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)
EGF stands for epidermal growth factor, which is a single-chain, non-glycosylated protein that naturally occurs in our skin cells. Its main purpose is to heal our skin by binding to EGFR, which is its receptor, on the surface of the cell. The combination of the two kickstarts several signaling pathways that ultimately lead to results such as cell proliferation, differentiation, and survival.
Benefits: Anti-aging is where EGF thrives. EGF has many benefits for your skin, including wrinkle improvement, hydration, and pigmentation prevention.
Skin Types: EGF is naturally produced by the human body. Topical application is safe for everyone.
