This serum has cult status with women paying a high price to get a virtual facelift from a bottle. It contains EGF – Epidermal Growth Factors – which is a natural substance in the human body that promotes cellular growth. But this EGF has been bio-engineered from barley so that it has none of the allergens that might be associated with animal-derived EGF.
As we age, along with most other things, our body produces less and so our cells start to wither. The EGF in this product gives them a kickstart and they start multiplying anew.
The barley is grown in Iceland where it is fed pure thermal waters and nutrients which also avoid the bacterial contamination of animal DNA.
In tests, women who used the serum over a period of weeks saw their pores shrink and fine lines fade but the most significant difference was that the thickness of skin increased.
There are only 9 ingredients in Bioeffect: Glycerine, Aqua, Sodium Hyalunorate, Tromethamine, Alcohol (less than 0.9%), Calcium Chloride, Sodium Chloride, Hordeum Vulgare Seed Extract, EGF (Transgenic Barley sh-Oligopeptide-1).
It’s not cheap – at £125 for 15ml – but according to the doctor in the video below the results are what you would expect from a facelift or a laser treatment. We tried it and liked the way it lifted skin that was starting to sag around the chin after 2 weeks of use. Buy at top department stores and also on line at www.bioeffect.co.uk
