Where Is This Active Ingredient Found? Epidermal Growth Factor BT is the active ingredient in ReVive skin care line.

Product Description & Benefits:
In 1986, Stanley Cohen received the Nobel Prize for his work elucidating the role of the Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) in the regulation of cell growth and development. EGF is a growth factor that plays an important role in the regulation of cell growth, cell proliferation and differentiation. As with all growth factors, it is a small protein. EGF acts by binding to specific receptors on the cell surface, starting a cascade of very organized molecular events, including increased intracellular calcium concentration, energy production and protein synthesis. Application of EGF to the skin will accelerate healing and, when applied to aging skin, it will increase the rate of skin renewal, which decreases with age. View the Certificate of Analysis for our current batch of EGF.

This is one the specialty proteins (see also

KGF and

SOD) made by Skin Actives Scientific using biotechnology. Biotechnology is a short name for an array of sophisticated methods that allow scientists to make large amounts of a single protein, nearly pure and fully active, at a fraction of the cost of extracting it from the original source material. Please note that our growth factors are sold for use in cosmetics only. Please ask us about wholesale pricing as well as custom protein development.

What is a growth factor? Growth factors, a.k.a. citokines, are naturally occuring proteins capable of stimulating cellular proliferation and cellular differentiation. Growth factors bind to specific receptors on the cell surfaces and are important for the regulation a variety of cellular processes. Among the practical uses of EGF are its use in accelerating healing of skin and cornea. EGF was the first growth factor to be discovered and studied, but many more factors have been found since then. These growth factors differ in size and structure, affecting different receptors and types of cells as a consequence, and causing various effects on the target cells.

What's Do It Yourself (DIY) Skin Care?


DIY Skin Care is an emerging trend in the beauty world where consumers are taking control of their skin care regimen and are making their own home-based recipes of skincare products by combining scientifically proven active ingredients inside creams. DIY presents an opportunity to create affordable beauty products at your home and to try different ingredients to arrive at recipes that are the most optimal for your skin needs. You can use DIY to simply copy well-known, expensive creams and make your own cheaper home version, or to combine your favorite cream with an ingredient that you've found to be beneficial.

Directions For Use:
Each kit is enough for 4 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 0.00005% concentration (50 mcg in 120 mL cream). Use in your favorite cream or add to our Canvas Base Cream or a Sea Kelp Bioferment base. Mix thoroughly, but gently. Vigorous mixing will decrease the activity level of the EGF. EGF is kept highly concentrated to preserve its activity, therefor you will hardly see the EGF drop at the bottom of the small tube. Store the EGF in the refrigerator until you are ready to use it. When ready to use, add the contents of the second tube (saline solution) to the tube containing EGF and close. Mix by inverting and straightening the tube several times. The EGF is now ready for addition to your cream, lotion, or serum. Do not be tempted to use it more concentrated than recommended. A growth factor is similar to a hormone: very little (it is measured in micrograms, one millionth of a gram) will go a very long way.
