Bioeffect Q&A

ON BIOEFFECT

Where can I buy the BIOEFFECT products?

  As a consumer, you can buy BIOEFFECT from several retailers via this page. If you are a wholesale customer, you can buy BIOEFFECT products via this website.

How are cellular activators in BIOEFFECT products different from other cellular activators?

  The cellular activators in the BIOEFFECT products are unlike all other growth factors on the market because they are plant-made.. To date, all other companies that use cellular activators in their skin care products use proteins produced in bacteria (E. coli), hamster cells or yeast. Production of cellular activators in barley seeds ensures they are void of potential contaminations associated with production in conventional production hosts. By producing the cellular activators in plants, it is possible to achieve an unparalleled level of purity and activity.

How does this treatment differ from using the BIOEFFECT Serum alone?

Research on advanced human skin models has shown that skin can appear thicker and firmer.  The cellular activators used in the BIOEFFECT 30 DAY TREATMENT are signalling molecules which deliver messages to the skin cells by recognising and binding to specific receptors on the cell’s surface. Like a key in a lock, they fit to their respective receptors and switch on the cell’s signalling activity. Through an elaborate molecular process the message is transferred inside the skin cell, where it switches on important mechanisms involved in skin regeneration and repair, so the skin appears firm and lifted, more vibrant and smooth.

How often should I use BIOEFFECT 30 DAY TREATMENT?

  Depending on the stage of wrinkle development, optimal results are obtained by applying BIOEFFECT 30 DAY TREATMENT between one and four times a year, whilst continuing the use of BIOEFFECT SERUM in between treatments.

ON CELLULAR ACTIVATORS

What are cellular activators?

  Cellular activators are messenger proteins. Their function is to stimulate the renewal and specialization of cells. Each cellular activator has its own unique function and many of them play an important role in the biology of the skin.

How are cellular activators produced in barley?

  The Orfeus™ system developed by ORF Genetics uses barley seeds as mini-factories for cellular activators. Synthetic genes encoding human-like cellular activators are placed into the barley seeds, leading to the formation of a new strain of barley. This barley is identical to other barley plants except that it produces this new particular human-like protein in its seeds. After harvesting the seeds, the cellular activators are extracted and precise quality assurance testing is performed. This method results in production of purer and more active cellular activator than have previously been available on the skin care market.

Are there are other cellular activators that can be used in skin care products?

  Yes, more than 20 cellular activators have been associated with skin care products. In fact BIOEFFECT‘s 30 DAY TREATMENT contains cellular activators that work in synergy on the two decisive layers of the skin, the epidermis and dermis.
