All about the trending anti-ageing molecule - EGF

on September 09, 2023

Why is there so much hype about EGF for antiaging? Is this better than retinol or vitamin C? Read this blog to know more about EGF and how to pick the right EGF product for your skin.


What is EGF?

EGF stands for Epidermal Growth Factor, which is a peptide chain with a specific sequence of amino acids. This EGF is naturally there in your body. It is found in your blood plasma, platelets, saliva and even in tears. And you know what? The most widely used treatment for hair loss and facial rejuvenation- Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP contains these epidermal growth factors. These EGFs have been therapeutically used in various fields of medicine for the last few decades. For instance, these EGFs have been used in oncology to prevent post-radiation burns, in gastroenterology to treat colitis & gastrointestinal ulcers and also to treat diabetic foot ulcers.

Of late, epidermal growth factors have gained attention in aesthetic medicine due to their skin regenerating, antiaging properties as well as their high tolerability than other antiaging molecules like retinol or vitamin C.

How does EGF work on your skin?

The surface of your skin cells contains specific proteins called Epidermal Growth Factor Receptors(EGFR). These receptors have the ability to regulate cell proliferation as well as cell differentiation. To make it simpler, imagine this EGFR to be a lock and the EGF to be a key. So when you apply EGF topically in the form of a cream or a serum, these epidermal growth factors will go and bind readily with the EGF receptors on your skin’s surface, stimulating cell division and cell renewal, leading to faster healing and regeneration of your skin. In short, EGF is the key to unlock healthy and youthful skin.
