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.

- Barley Beta Glucan
- A skin-soothing ingredient known for its effect on the skin barrier, ability to seal in moisture and hydrate, fight wrinkles and UV damage as well as provide skin-calming rejuvenation. In addition, clinical testing has shown Beta Glucan derived from Barley can provide as much as 3 times more potent antioxidant protection than Beta Glucan derived from Oats.
- A new skincare ingredient derived from an herbal extract known for its medicinal properties and its ability to reduce oxidative stress – another potential factor contributing to the visible signs of aging. Oridonin also has the ability to communicate with the skin similar to Barley EGF, and the two combine for a more profound effect by blurring the appearance of lines, targeting saggy skin, and ensuring a healthy-looking complexion.
- Also known as Vitamin B3 and visibly improves skin’s texture, evens skin tone, and increases radiance while also minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
- Hyaluronic Acid
- A vital substance naturally found in skin. It is critical for maintaining skin hydration. Known for its incredible capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture. Here it is in a super low molecular weight (SLMW) form specially developed for better penetration.
- Icelandic Water
- Clean, soft, and pure, as it is geologically filtered through layers of inert volcanic lava, with a low concentration of hard minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
- A skin-replenishing and hydrating antioxidant. Here it is combined with the fatty acids from Evening Primrose Oil and Shea Butter for nourishing moisturization and skin-softening benefits without a greasy residue that is perfect for dry, mature skin.
