Epithelial Growth Factor

In recent years, there has been plenty of talk about the Plasma or Epithelial Growth Factor, but many are unsure of its true meaning and purpose in cosmetics. Now we can find out.

What is Epithelial Growth Factor (EGF)?

The Epithelial Growth Factor is a protein-based substance found in the blood plasma and plays an important role in intercellular communication. Its activity is essential in wound healing since it controls cell growth.

The discovery of this factor by Rita Levi-Montalcini and Stanley Cohen was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine. Their successful efforts to trace the origin of cell recovery are very appreciated.

Many prominent figures have effectively received infiltrations of plasma to regenerate their injuries, including the likes of Nadal, Xavi, Puyol, Donato, Sergi Vidal, Samuel Sanchez, Joseba Beloki, or even King Juan Carlos. However, the  applications of the Epithelial Growth Factor are not limited to their medical use. There are also cosmetic treatments that use this factor as the basis of their products due to its endless benefits.

Its properties symbolize a revolution in skin regeneration, since they accelerate cell renovation and synthesize collagen. Meanwhile, the Epithelial Growth Factor helps form hyaluronic acid, which is essential for rejuvenation.

The presence of these features makes the importance of EGF in vanguard cosmetic treatments evident.

Farma Dorsch and Epithelial Growth Factor

The Fridda Dorsch laboratories are profoundly interested in this fascinating substance and its rejuvenating properties. This is evidenced through the tests and treatments that were carried out with Epithelial Growth Factors of Marine and Vegetable Origins, which simulate and share the same characteristics as the blood plasma that runs through our body.

Thus, in 2012, Farma Dorsch launched the first full line of anti-aging treatment based on this innovative active ingredient. The line was presented by Dr. Bartolome Beltran, Secretary General of the Spanish Medico-Surgical Academy and Dr. Juan Barona Sopena, Dermatologist and Director of the Madrid Institute of Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery (MSDI).

Why combine Epithelial Growth Factor and cosmetics?

This factor effectively improves the skin’s quality and condition and increases its ability to self-defend against external aggression, working even on the most sensitive skins. Therefore, it is essential in the treatment of skin aging and the action of pollution, radiation and stress.

In particular we highlight three key benefits in cosmetic dermatology:

  1. Increases the skin’s elasticity, thickness, and firmness. This is achieved by catalyzing the formation of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, substances which are necessary as skin ages and stops producing them. At this point, the production of cellular activators prevents the skin from looking fragile, lacking in firmness and wrinkled.
  2. Accelerates the natural processes of cellular healing and regeneration, thus forming new tissue. The EGF not only has a capacity to instigate epidermal growth, but is also crucial in skin growth and essential processes that require regeneration (wounds, blemishes, stretch marks, etc.). Specifically, it prevents cellular oxidation within tissues by controlling the maintenance and renewal of each cell.
  3. Activates anabolic functions. This means that the regenerative properties of the Epithelial Growth Factor also help improve the metabolism of our body, which makes more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

These benefits would not be possible without a substance such as this factor, since it acts and penetrates the deeper layers of the skin more directly without causing skin irritation.

When to use a treatment with Epithelial Growth Factor?

If you have noticed any signs of cellular aging in your skin, it’s time to pursue leading cosmetic products in the epithelial growth market.

When you notice the skin thinner than usual, lack of hydration, sagging or a substantial decrease in fatty tissue, Epithelial Growth Factor can be an expected solution. In general, it is a comprehensive treatment for all cutaneous signs of aging.

The ideal time for its application is at night when the skin makes no gestures or movements that can hinder the effectiveness of treatments. However, each product specifies the right time to make its work more effective.

The regeneration of skin firmness and elasticity will return to your skin by using Fridda Dorsch’s alcohol and silicone free products.
