Growth Factors are natural substances derived from a variety of human cells such as bone marrow stem cells to skin cells. They help to maintain healthy skin in three forms which are, to significantly boost collagen and elastin production, repair skin damage and calm the cellular inflammation that promotes the ageing process. They work mainly on the outermost layers of the skin and have the ability to increase the production of cell growth.
Furthermore, they work directly with the fibroblasts in the lower layers of the skin which instruct these cells to produce collagen and elastin to renew the skin’s support and structure as well as improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This powerhouse ingredient plays an important role in skin rejuvenation.
With advances in biotechnology over the last decade, laboratories have been able to produce topical growth factors. However, while all cells can produce them, the composition of each is more suited to treating the cells that produced them. For example, bone marrow stem cells are more likely to produce growth factors that assist with the functioning of bone marrow. Therefore to maintain healthy skin, growth factors extracted from skin cells called fibroblasts are more beneficial to support the skin.
Over the past decade, several clinical studies have highlighted the benefits of this particular ingredient within skincare products, especially when it comes to the appearance of fine lines, discolouration and texture. These studies show that, in regards to the quality of the skin, results will begin to show in 6-12 weeks when growth factor products are used twice a day. Additionally, these studies also showed visible results for the crow’s feet lines and overall radiance. The combination of growth factors with strong antioxidants tend to show results sooner too, typically within 4-8 weeks.
We have a selection of skin care products that incorporate growth factors using the most advanced technologies, including Endocare and Osmosis Skincare. The Stem Factor Growth Factor Serum by Osmosis Skincare features a revolutionary formula with over 600 different skin growth factors and skin proteins derived from adult stem cells that are easily recognised by the skin to improve all signs of ageing.
Endocare also integrates growth factors into their range by utilising SCA which is the base active ingredient boasting unprecedented technology capable of reactivating cell regeneration. Endocare is the only cosmetic line that uses SCA Biorepair Technology designed specifically for the treatment of photoaging and recovery of skin damaged by dermo-cosmetic techniques.
