Frequent hand washing throughout the day can cause dry, tired hands. At BIOEFFECT, we’ve put together a simple two-step rejuvenating hand care routine to nourish and revive your working hands. 1-2 times a week, indulge in this repairing hand care routine to relax and take care of your busy, hard-working hands.

Step 1: Brighten & Revive

Massage a pea-sized amount of our Volcanic Exfoliator onto damp hands. This formulation includes all-natural Icelandic micro-crystalline lava and ground apricot seeds to smooth skin and soften hands. Using gentle, circulation motions, focus your massage on the tops of your hands and around the nails to slough away any dry, dead skin to reveal brighter skin.

Step 2: Nourish & Repair

Apply a pump of our Body Intensive into the palm of your hands. Massage this serum into your hands not forgetting to give some attention to your cuticles and between the fingers. Formulated with glycerin to moisturize and our plant-based EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor), it is the ideal formula to rejuvenate the hands of any skin type to look and feel healthy and fresh. Its gel-like silky texture makes it easy to absorb into the skin so you can get back to your daily activities with hydrated hands, right away.

Hope you enjoy!

Whether it’s your first date or your 100th, put your best face forward this Valentine’s Day with EGF enriched skincare from BIOEFFECT. Part of the fun of getting ready for date night is treating your skin to a mini spa day. Our range of BIOEFFECT products helps your skin replenish its own natural supply of Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) and rejuvenate skin cells, ensuring your inner glow will shine through on your special night with your special someone. Read on to discover what makes our EGF Essence, EGF Eye Mask Treatment, EGF Day Serum and OSA Water Mist the perfect skincare quartet for date night.

EGF Essence

Moisture is the key to any successful skincare regime and BIOEFFECT EGF Essence is light-weight and watery so it drenches your skin in moisture giving it the intense hydration it craves. It’s fast-absorbing which means it won’t just sit on top of your skin but is drawn deep under the surface where it goes to work delivering plumping, firming and moisture-retaining EGF.

EGF Eye Mask Treatment

One of the most delicate and difficult areas of the face to care for is around the eyes. The skin around the eyes is thin and can easily become dry if not treated properly. To achieve the best results in this tricky area you’ll need BIOEFFECT EGF Eye Mask Treatment. Boasting a higher concentration of EGF and the same hydrogel formula as the BIOEFFECT Imprinting Hydrogel Mask, it immediately reduces puffiness and signs of fatigue while smoothing and plumping any fine lines and wrinkles. It’s ideal to use under your eyes before you get started on your eye makeup.

EGF Day Serum

BIOEFFECT EGF Day Serum has the same benefits as our EGF Serum but uses a hydrating gel formula to keep you fresh-faced throughout the day. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and maximizes radiance and tone. Use it after the BIOEFFECT EGF Essence to maintain your skin’s moisture balance. It provides a smooth finish, which makes it an ideal base for makeup.

OSA Water Mist

Once your makeup is done it’s time for the BIOEFFECT OSA WATER MIST. Made with pure Icelandic water, this refreshing spray hydrates, and balances the skin. It contains Orthosilicic Acid (OSA) and Optimized Hyaluronic Acid to both strengthen and hydrate. Our OSA Water Mist gives your skin a final boost of hydration and its mattifying effect makes for an elegant finishing touch.

What are your plans for Valentine's Day?

There’s a new sheet mask on the block and it is like no other. The high-quality BIOEFFECT Imprinting Hydrogel Mask maximizes the effect of BIOEFFECT’s EGF products, with deep-hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and without ingredients that could interfere with growth factor activity.

Our Barley-Based EGF at a Glance

Barley-based EGF, or Epidermal Growth Factor, is the foundation upon which BIOEFFECT’s products stand. Our skin cells naturally produce EGF to keep our skin youthful and supple but as we grow older, production slows. BIOEFFECT’s barley-based EGF is unique in that it is a plant-based replica of human EGF which means applying EGF products to your skin stimulates your skin cells’ production of EGF.


What Is Imprinting?

The chain reaction needed to re-activate the production of EGF within skin cells begins with applying BIOEFFECT EGF Serum. Upon contact with your skin, the serum signals cells to begin producing their own EGF and distributing it, which triggers neighboring cells to do the same. This chain reaction continues from the epidermis, the top layer of skin, down into the dermis, the main layer of our skin. This process of delivery and activation is called imprinting, and for it to work efficiently there needs to be moisture. Here is where the BIOEFFECT Imprinting Hydrogel Mask comes into play.



It is not impossible to go down a waterslide at the pool when there’s no water on the slide but it is not fun nor easy. It just works best with water and so it is with EGF, it just works best in well-hydrated skin. The longer your skin is kept moist the more intense the imprinting effect will be. When you use the BIOEFFECT Imprinting Hydrogel Mask after applying the EGF Serum, you are creating the perfect micro-environment for EGF and maximizing its effect.



The BIOEFFECT Imprinting Hydrogel Mask is the cherry on top of your BIOEFFECT EGF facial routine. Use the mask 2-3 times a week after cleansing, applying a BIOEFFECT serum of your choice. Apply the BIOEFFECT Imprinting Hydrogel Mask on top of the serum and leave it on for 15 minutes. After removing the mask, gently massage any excess serum into your skin.

The hydrogel mask bathes your skin in the moisture it needs to support imprinting, allowing you to get the most out of your EGF products.

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.
