Hyaluronic Acid

The Face Line skincare ingredients come and go, but hyarulonic acid is one whose fame is well-earned. It offers multiple benefits for any skin type and comes packed with anti-aging properties. So just how does this superstar ingredient do its work to improve skin? Let’s explore…

Scientifically speaking, hyaluronic acid is a type of molecule composed partly of sugars. Hyaluronic acid is actually a natural structural component of skin, and in fact, is present in connective tissue throughout the human body.

The magic of this ingredient lies in its ability to retain moisture. It is considered to have a greater capacity to hold moisture than any other synthetic polymer. In fact, one gram of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to six litres of water.

Hyaluronic acid can improve your skin’s moisture content and at the same time strengthen skin’s barrier, that is, the outer layers of your skin. A healthy barrier looks and feels softer, smoother, and plumper. This is the hallmarks of younger-looking skin!

Hyaluronic acid also can go a long way toward fixing and minimizing those sun damage, acne, to sensitive skin, which means it is helpful for all skin types. Its lightweight texture is not an issue for oily skin. It is gentle enough that it is not a problem for sensitive skin. Last but not more, hyaluronic acid also provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage and reduces inflammation.

Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)

EGF is an age-prevention ingredient that supports cell renewal and wound repair. It has potent regenerating properties, making it valuable for age prevention and age reversal of the skin. EGF is a vital protein found in the fibroblast cells of the dermal layer, and it works to stimulate cells to produce collagen.

EGF increases cell renewal after any exfoliation and assists the skin in wound healing. It is an excellent home care maintenance product in that it nourishes and provides support that slows down the aging of the skin. By topically providing the skin with this essential nutrient, the skin experiences a healthier outcome. Therefore, with EGF in our skin care, it helps to promote the appearance of youthful, rejuvenated skin. It helps to improve elasticity, resulting in a more refined tone and texture.

Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (BFGF)

BFGF are proteins that regulate cellular growth, proliferation and differentiation under controlled conditions. They play an important maintaining healthy skin structure and function. Study shows that BFGF stimulate biochemical pathways that promote skin tissue repair and regeneration. They promote the formation of collagen and elastic fibres which give the skin its softness and suppleness.

Results from multiple controlled clinical studies have shown that the application of skin care containing growth factors manages to:

  • reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as a result of new collagen synthesis.
  • improve the appearance of age spots and even out pigmentation.
  • reduce skin roughness.
  • improve skin texture and elasticity.
  • improve skin smoothness and tightness.


Collagen is a protein present in all the body’s organs and tissues. It provides the matrix that sustains the body’s structure. It is the most common protein in the human body, comprising about 30 percent of the body’s total protein content.

Collagen helps your skin maintain its elasticity. This prevents your face from developing wrinkles every time you make an expression and accounts for the youthful appearance of younger skin. As you age, collagen tends to break down, and this reduces skin’s elasticity, resulting in wrinkles, saggy skin, age spots and similar effects of aging.
