Who It’s For
All skin types as an essential part of your anti-aging regimen for prevention and repair, especially of sun damage, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone.
Best suited for normal, combination, oily and normal-to-dry skin types. Very dry or sensitive skin types may prefer a less intensive treatment such as our Retinol Evening Renewal Serum.
How It Works
Epidermal Growth Factor, often referred to as Growth Factor and scientifically known as sh-oligopeptide-1, is a naturally occurring protein in your skin.
EGF signals new cell division and growth by stimulating cells called fibroblasts, which produce collagen, hyaluronan, and elastin, ultimately leading to thicker, tighter skin. Kate’s EGF Serum also provides the nutrients required for the creation of healthy, new skin cells.
EGF acts as a natural renewal agent because it elicits an emergency response mechanism to skin damage (sunburns, cuts, etc.) by encouraging the multiplication of cells. Kate’s EGF Serum activates the body’s systems for generating new skin cells.
Our EGF Serum is based in a cell growth medium that is rich in amino acids and provides an optimally balanced nutritional environment for human keratinocyte and epithelial cell growth. The cell growth medium is important because:
Amino acids are essential building blocks for proteins, making them key ingredients in skincare formulas. Amino acids applied topically maintain hydration, promoting soft, supple skin. They also act as antioxidants and help strengthen the skin, making the skin more resilient and slowing the aging process.
Keratinocytes make up over 90% of the cells in the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis. They are keratin-producing cells that protect against UV radiation, maintain hydration, and shield from infection. Epithelial cells offer a protective barrier for the skin.
Unless your skin is very sensitive, you should absolutely use Retinol, the star of our Total Nutrition Night Repair Complex. It’s a proven ingredient that addresses signs of aging, plus damage from inflammation, acne, and sun exposure. Total Nutrition Night Repair gives you a potent dose of retinol, at a concentration of 1%, but it’s much more than a simple retinol product.
In addition to the rejuvenating power of retinol, Total Nutrition features nutritive plant oils and hyaluronic acid for hydration and moisture-retention. Keeping skin plump, dewy, and moist is essential when using retinol, which can be drying on its own as it exfoliates and speeds cell turnover.
Collagen, DMAE, Centella asiatica, peptides, and the amino acid carnosine all work on boosting collagen levels to firm skin that’s losing elasticity, and to soften lines and wrinkles. A spectrum of antioxidants rarely found in a retinol treatment including ubiquinone, resveratrol, green tea, turmeric extract, tocotrienols, and astaxanthin help to repair environmental damage and brighten skin, while helping to even out pigmentation and sun damage. Alpha lipoic acid tightens the appearance of pores and supports retinol in clarifying and smoothing rough or damaged texture.
Using EGF Serum with Total Nutrition is a very natural pairing for the ways the formulas complement each other. Now you can address all the most common signs of aging and damaged skin with this simple nighttime regimen.
How To Use
In the PM, after cleansing, apply EGF Serum to dry or slightly moist skin on face, neck, and chest. Allow serum to absorb into skin.
Apply Total Nutrition Night Repair Complex to the same areas. Not recommended for sensitive or irritated skin. Protect skin with SPF 30 or greater.
