Discover BIOEFFECT Skincare: A Clean, Plant Based Brand That Harnesses Science To Soothe Your Skin

Born out of a true passion for science, BIOEFFECT skincare was founded by three Icelandic scientists who discovered a way to bioengineer EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor), infusing their sustainable skincare with the restorative ingredient to promote rejuvenated skin. 

Targeting the visible signs of ageing, BIOEFFECT introduced plant-based EGF in skincare to improve skin tone, even skin texture, and boost skin barrier function, harnessing the natural power of plants to rejuvenate your complexion.

Enriching their anti-ageing skincare with natural plant-based ingredients, BIOEFFECT’s skincare is free from harsh chemicals and parabens, ensuring that their products are gentle and effective on your skin.

What Is EGF?

A protein that’s produced naturally in your body, EGF plays an important role in the growth and regeneration of cells, aiding the formation of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to keep your skin firm, bouncy, and healthy.

As we age, this EGF slowly depletes, causing the visible signs of ageing to be more pronounced, leading to a decline in the health and appearance of your skin. Looking to retain youth, many people are now turning to skincare products infused with EGF, hoping to stimulate their skin's natural regeneration process to minimise fine lines and wrinkles.


Developing a way to bioengineer EGF in a now patented process, BIOEFFECT discovered a way to genetically modify barley plants to produce the protein at their lab.

They started the process by first isolating the gene for human EGF, and transferring this gene into barley plants using biolistic transformation, a technique that involves shooting DNA-coated particles into plant cells.

Following the successful gene transfer, the modified plants were then grown in a greenhouse close to BIOEFFECTS Icelandic HQ and once fully fledged, they underwent a purification process, where the EGF protein is carefully extracted from the barley plant, ensuring a high level of purity and efficacy.

Once extracted the purified EGF is then formulated into BIOEFFECT’s EGF serums, face creams, cleansers, masks, and exfoliators, allowing BIOEFFECT to produce some of the best skincare for ageing skin.
