IN THE BEGINNING
BIOEFFECT was founded by three Icelandic scientists when they discovered, after over a decade of research, a way to bioengineer a plant-based human replica of EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) in barley plants. EGF is one of the most important growth factors for skin, helping to boost production of collagen and elastin to maintain healthy, dense and youthful skin.
WHAT WE STRIVE FOR
Our mission is to restore and maintain skin’s natural youthfulness and vitality through healthy, pure ingredients and truly effective advancements in skincare using biotechnology. The challenge is to understand what skin cells truly need for better performance and how we can provide them with the components vital to healthy function.
