Epidermal Growth Factor Description
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) is the earliest discovered growth factor and plays an important role in regulating cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation.
Studies have found that EGF has the effect of resurrecting cells in vivo or in vitro. Applying EGF to the skin can simultaneously act on keratinocytes, fibroblasts, smooth cells, and endothelial cells. It can promote cell growth and proliferation, accelerate collagen regeneration.
