With temperatures rising for the summer season, we’re reaching for products to refresh and cool our skin. This is our BIOEFFECT summer skin edit tailored for hot weather whilst still providing that same high standard of hydration, skin firming, and nourishment.

Morning Hydration

Switch up your morning skin hydration with our EGF Essence. A refreshingly lightweight, watery formula that absorbs quickly into the skin. Our essence offers brilliant hydration alongside the benefits of our plant-based EGF. 2-4 splashes pressed into your skin delivers plumper, firmer skin without the need to layer on several products which can feel heavy in the warmer months.

You can also choose to layer our super lightweight EGF Day Serum on top. A summer-appropriate gel texture that glides easily onto the skin. It delivers a fresh, matte almost satin-like skin finish making it the perfect makeup primer for oilier skin types. Don’t forget to apply a good sunscreen as your final skincare step!

Refresh Skin Throughout the Day

Our OSA Water Mist is portable hydration in a tube. Perfect for your handbag, office space, or at home - it offers a quick skin refresh to hydrate and soothe throughout the day. We formulate our facial mist with skin-softening pure Icelandic water, Orthosilicic Acid (OSA), and Optimized Hyaluronic Acid so you get that balance of hydration and a matte finish to keep summer shine at bay.

TOP TIP: A spritz of our OSA Water Mist can refresh your makeup and take away any oily shine. You can also keep this in the fridge to create a great skin refreshment.

Evening Nourishment

For warm summer nights, we recommend streamlining your evening skincare routine. Press on 2-4 splashes of our lightweight EGF Essence followed with a few drops of the EGF Serum massaged into the skin before bed. Prepping skin with the Essence first will enhance the efficacy of the EGF so you can get the most out of your skincare revealing firmer, radiant, and healthier skin. Our skincare is formulated alcohol-free and oil-free so it won’t dry out your skin or feel heavy when layered.

Summer Skin Treatments

One of the great benefits of our plant-based EGF is how it boosts collagen and elastin production in the skin. EGF stars in our Body Intensive Serum to firm, tone, and hydrate your body all over. Its silky, smooth texture feels light on the skin and absorbs instantly for optimal hydration without leaving behind any residue. We always reach for this in the summer as it makes for wonderfully soothing aftersun care.

For a refreshing skin treat, pop one of our Imprinting Hydrogel Masks in the fridge before use. Not only does our sheet mask supercharge the benefits of your EGF Serum, post-fridge use adds an extra cooling and soothing sensation on the skin. The perfect summer skin treat to prepare if there’s a heatwave on the forecast.

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.

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.
