After years of rigorous testing and research, Medik8 has developed a new anti-ageing growth factor serum, utilising the most advanced technologies currently available in this industry.
Growth Factor Youth Activating Serum will restore smoothness, luminosity and radiance to the skin.
As we age, the level of EGF in our skin declines, leading to slower skin metabolism, lack of radiance and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The challenge is to restore the level of EGF within the skin, in order to activate its natural regeneration mechanisms.
Medik8 Growth Factor based product has been developed using the purest form of EGF: triple filtered to activate the skin's natural regeneration mechanism and restore its youthfulness, luminosity and radiance in only 6 to 8 weeks.

Growth factors are a large group of naturally occurring biological molecules involved in cellular communication. They can also stimulate cell repair and proliferation. By using growth factors we can now communicate with our cells directly, telling them to stay healthy and young.
Our Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) was developed in collaboration with a biotechnology laboratory. It is synthetically produced therefore it is 100% free from any human or animal derivatives and yet it is bio-identical. We use the same manufacturing method and a similar purification technique used by pharmaceutical industry, to produce our synthetic EGF.
How does the triple-filtration process works:
At stage 1: misfolded growth factors are removed as they can counteract EGF activity. Only correctly folded EGF has biological activity.
At stage 2: proteases are carefully removed to ensure higher stability and longer shelf-life. Proteases break down proteins such as growth factors decreasing their stability over time.
At stage 3: endotoxins are removed, to eliminate any risk of irritation or allergic reaction.
To finish, Medik8 encapsulates triple-filtered EGF inside a liposome delivery system. It is therefore more stable and more efficient at penetrating the skin, leading to higher efficacy.
The end formula is a pure, stable and highly efficacious and bioavailable serum.
Growth Factor Youth Activating Serum has been formulated for twice daily application to the face as part of the Medik8 protocol:
3. Correct 4. Hydrate
Apply 5/6 drops directly to the skin and blend evenly across the whole facial area (avoiding the eyes) and to the neck and décolleté. Leave it to absorb and follow with the application of other Medik8 Correct products as directed by your skincare professional
If irritation occurs, reduce applications to once daily. If irritation persists, cease use and contact your skincare professional.
Medik8 is the British skin research company pioneering cosmeceutical technologies to make the most effective ingredients suitable for even the most sensitive skin, yet crucially without compromising efficacy. Medik8 cosmeceuticals may be used by everyone. Apart from being kinder to the skin, it turns out this new technology is kinder to the planet too. That’s why Medik8 is known as the ‘Green Cosmeceutical’ brand. Most skin is sensitive, it is just to what degree that distinguishes it from others. A simple change of washing powder can demonstrate this. People of all ages and skin types can periodically suffer from sensitive skin, making them particularly susceptible to certain irritating cosmeceutical ingredients. In fact, those suffering from acne, rosacea or psoriasis usually have greater skin sensitivity, which can be exacerbated by some aggressive treatment products that they use. The challenge for Medik8 is to make effective ingredients less aggressive without reducing potency. We do this in many ways for example using film-encapsulation, chirally correct actives, non-acid derivatives and patented anti-erythema technologies. Of course, using any effective strength actives, for example retinols and fruit acids, will cause some stinging to even the toughest skins, but Medik8 pharmacologists have minimised the degree of irritation and in some cases made it absent all together. No longer are the most powerful and effective ingredients beyond the reach of people who want the gain without the pain! And who doesn’t want that? Ask your skin care professional about what Medik8 can do for you.
