Application of EGF to the skin will accelerate healing and, when applied to aging skin, it will increase the rate of skin renewal, which otherwise decreases with age.

Information sheet.

This is the active ingredient in ReVive.

In 1986, Stanley Cohen received the Nobel Prize for his work elucidating the role of the Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) in the regulation of cell growth and development. EGF is a growth factor that plays an important role in the regulation of cell growth, cell proliferation and differentiation. As with all growth factors, it is a small protein. EGF acts by binding to specific receptors on the cell surface, starting a cascade of very organized molecular events, including increased intracellular calcium concentration, energy production and protein synthesis. 

This is one of the specialty proteins made by Skin Actives Scientific using biotechnology. Biotechnology is a short name for an array of sophisticated methods that allow scientists to make large amounts of a single protein, nearly pure and fully active, at a fraction of the cost of extracting it from the original source material. Please note that our growth factors are sold for use in cosmetics only.

Please ask us about wholesale pricing as well as custom protein development.

What is a growth factor? Growth factors, a.k.a. cytokines, are naturally occuring proteins capable of stimulating cellular proliferation and cellular differentiation. Growth factors bind to specific receptors on cell surfaces and are important for the regulation of a variety of cellular processes. Among the practical uses of EGF are its use in accelerating healing of skin and cornea. EGF was the first growth factor to be discovered and studied, but many more factors have been found since then. These growth factors differ in size and structure, affecting different receptors and types of cells as a consequence, and causing various effects on the target cells.

Information sheet.

Each kit is enough for 4 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 0.00005% concentration (50 mcg in 120 mL cream). Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream or Sea Kelp Coral.

Mix thoroughly, but gently. Vigorous mixing will decrease the activity of the EGF protein.

EGF is kept highly concentrated to preserve its activity, therefore you will hardly see the EGF drop at the bottom of the small tube.

Store the EGF in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. When ready to use, add the contents of the second tube (saline solution) to the tube containing EGF and close. Mix by inverting and straightening the tube several times. The EGF is now ready for addition to your cream, lotion, or serum. Do not be tempted to use more than the recommended quantity. A growth factor is similar to a hormone: very little (it is measured in micrograms, one millionth of a gram) will go a very long way.

    Excellent growth factor additive to add to any prepared product. Thanks so much for offering it alone, and at such a great low price!

    Love the EGF! I added it alone to European Base cream and have been using it morning and evening for 3-4 weeks. I have noticed an overall smoother texture in my skin, but the biggest surprise was how firm and smooth the skin on my neck has become! At 31 I have notices that neglecting to treat my neck was starting to catch up with me. Now I look like I did at 21! I can't believe it. I just woke up one day and realized how great it looked!!
