World Water Day

Maximum Moisturization. Maximum Results.

At BIOEFFECT, we know it’s no coincidence that water makes up approximately 64% of our skin. It is a vital resource that makes life here on earth possible. It’s what scientists search for and hope to find on other planets. Drinking water is the reflexive gesture of each living creature: animals in forests, jungles, and deserts drink it upon waking to begin the day—as do most people. Water is necessary for all aspects of health, including beautiful skin.

Our island nation is home to a multitude of glaciers, lakes, and rivers, and the ocean surrounding us is particularly pure. Our spring water is one of the purest in the world. This is due to our unique geography, “the fire and ice” of volcanoes and glaciers. Icelandic bedrock is largely made up of a kind of basalt that is both lava and bedrock. This allows melting glacier water to be geologically purified through layers of young lava. Because it contains only trace amounts of dissolved minerals such as calcium and magnesium, Icelandic water is very soft, and therefore less likely to leave a drying or irritating mineral deposit on skin and hair. Nor does our water require fabric softeners or limescale treatments. Because it is one of the purest waters in the world, Icelanders are proud to drink it straight from the tap—thus reducing plastic bottle use.

We are proud to use Icelandic water in our products to ensure the purest formulation and a big part of what makes BIOEFFECT so unique.

Our Barley EGF does its best work in a moisture-rich environment! Turbo-Charge Your EGF skincare routine by adding one of these products with the EGF Serum and let the results speak for themselves.

A New Hydration Hero

On its own, this oil-free, luxurious water cream boosts moisture levels in the skin up to 35%, but that number more than doubles* when applied on top of the EGF Serum. This is good news if your skin seems dry, dull, and showing signs of aging. Adding even more moisture to the skin helps Barley EGF penetrate and amplifies its visible anti-aging results.

A Splash of Moisture

A staple in Asian skincare routines these ‘miracle waters’ are designed to deliver superior penetration due to their low molecular weight. Our EGF Essence sets your skin up for success before our serums with an added boost of Barley EGF and an increase in hydration for overall better absorption and performance.

The Ultimate Boost

Drenched with Hyaluronic Acid and powerful humectants, this is the perfect infusion of intense moisture for any skin that looks dehydrated, making wrinkles more pronounced.

BIOEFFECT takes pride in the purity and efficacy of our products. Our bestselling EGF Serum is the result of over ten years of research, and our barley-based EGF prefers a water environment since oils, alcohols, and fragrances can compromise the proteins' efficacy. The water we use in our greenhouse comes from our own natural spring and is geologically filtered through inert volcanic lava. That same water is used in our serums to ensure the purest formulation. All our serums also include Hyaluronic Acid (non-animal derived) which, increases water retention in the skin, making the skin plumper and diminishing fine lines.

In Iceland, water is a precious and driving force. At BIOEFFECT we respect the importance of water as a philosophy for both life and work. We celebrate World Water Day and in that context, we send you our best wishes for health and beautiful skin.
