Bioeffect EGF Serum Review: Rejuvenate Your Skin
Bioeffect products are a must-have in a non-invasive skincare regimen. The Bioeffect EGF Serum features the brand’s signature ingredient, EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor), which plays a vital role in producing collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid and acts as a gentler alternative to retinol.
We explore everything you need to know about the Bioeffect EGF Serum, including how it works, tips to achieve the best results, and reviews from our team of estheticians.
The Ingredients & Science Behind Bioeffect EGF Serum
Bioeffect was founded by three Icelandic scientists who developed a bioengineered plant-based growth factor. This growth factor, called EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor), is a signaling protein naturally found in our skin and is Bioeffect’s signature skincare ingredient.
The groundbreaking Bioeffect EGF Serum features Barley EGF, a skin-rejuvenating, moisture-binding, signaling protein — the first of its kind to be derived from plants. As we age, our skin produces fewer growth factor proteins, and during menopause rapidly depletes, resulting in slower skin cell turnover, sagging, and wrinkles. The science behind the Barley EGF combats these signs of aging by supporting the skin’s natural collagen production, which is essential to keeping skin looking smooth, healthy, and youthful.
Bioeffect’s Barley EGF is sustainably grown in inert volcanic pumice, using geothermal energy and pure Icelandic water enriched with nutrients. Nestled within the lava fields of Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula, The hydroponic, ecologically-engineered greenhouse nurtures up to 130,000 barley plants for their biotech skincare products.
The Bioeffect EGF Serum has only seven pure ingredients. In addition to the Barley EGF, the formula contains hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and pure Icelandic water.

How to Use Bioeffect EGF Serum
The Bioeffect EGF Serum is a staple at Joanna Czech studios, with our team using the product during facials and frequently prescribing it for at-home use.
Alessandra Reist, one of our on-staff estheticians, frequently recommends the serum to her clients, sharing, “That with the Bioeffect Serum, it is very important to use on damp skin following toner. Also, a little bit goes a long way - one drop is more than enough for the face and neck (otherwise, it can feel sticky).”
Bioeffect’s website suggests waiting a few minutes for the serum to absorb before applying moisturizer, sunscreen, or makeup. Apply at night for advanced repair while you sleep or during the day to revitalize and hydrate.
