ABOUT BIO-EFFECT

BIOEFFECT is an Icelandic skincare brand, founded by 3 scientists in 2001. They decided to replicate the active ingredient EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) in barley plants using biotechnology. The EGF, which naturally occur in the skin, stimulates cell renewal, and therefore makes the skin thicker, more elastic and healthier. BIOEFFECT is diffent due to the purity of its products, which only contain ingredients that are necessary to guarantee the optimal efficacy of EGF, and no additives.

Dr. Björn Örvar, cofounder and Chief Scientific Officer at BIOEFFECT, develops since 2001 products that are as pure as possible, to guarantee the optimal efficacy of the EGF Growth Factor.

BIOEFFECT‘s active ingredient EGF is produced in barley plants that are farmed in an ecologically-engineered greenhouse in Iceland, using only renewable geothermal energy.

When we age, the production of EGF diminishes, and renewal of skin cells slows down. The skin starts to get thinner and drier. Thanks to the BIOEFFECT serums, you reactivate the EGF production and therefore skin renewal, for a skin younger from the inside.

BIOEFFECT‘s active ingredient EGF is produced in barley plants that are farmed in an ecologically-engineered greenhouse in Iceland, using only renewable geothermal energy.

BIOEFFECT‘s mission is to restore and preserve the natural beauty of the skin, with pure and healthy ingredients and using biotechnology.

Our first challenge was to understand what skin cells really need to grow, and to give them all the essential components required so that they could function as well as possible.

When applying EGF on the skin, it connects with cell receptors and give them the signal to regenerate and multiply. Skin becomes thicker, firmer, wrinkles and fine lines are visibly reduced.

BIOEFFECT‘s EGF is produced in barley, and is purer and more efficient than the EGF usually used in skincare, which is often extracted from human or animal tissues.

BIOEFFECT‘s product range is simple and short, for an easy but efficient beauty routine. Independant studies have shown that skin thickness has increased by 60%, and skin density has increased by 30% after applying the EGF Serum for 2 months.

BIOEFFECT is very lucky to be born in Iceland. The brand uses natural ingredients like Icelandic spring water, which is incredibly pure.

BIOEFFECT carried out more than 40 studies to evaluate the efficacy of its products. Results have shown a reduction of wrinkles by 60% and an improvement of hydration by 46% after using the EGF Serum for 90 days.

All year round, our scientists work to improve our product range and to develop new and efficient products – antioxydant, hydrating, regenerating.

“The serum is amazing !“ In a letter sent to our press agency, Marion Cotillard congratulated the team and praised the incredible efficacy of the EGF Serum.

BIOEFFECT‘s 30 Day Treatment was awarded the „Prix d‘Excellence de la Beauté“ from the renown magazine Marie-Claire in 2017. One of the judges says „the first serum was already amazing, this treatment is even more efficient.“

The EGF Serum and the 30 Day Treatment were some of the favorite skincare products of Karl Lagerfeld. This was confirmed in a special edition of Vogue magazine.

Our products are pure and effective
