Nature Republic The Jin EGF Essence Booster November 10, 2010

One of Korea’s fastest growing Cosmetic company, Nature Republic, has announced today a new product called The Jin EGF Essence Booster.

So what is EGF and this obsession with EGF in Korean cosmetics lately?  What does it stand for?

EGF simply stands for Epidermal Growth Factor. It is a growth factor that plays an important role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation by binding to its receptor EGFR. There is research showing it to be helpful for wound and burn healing

EGF is the perfect marketing tool in cosmetics because the discovery of EGF won Stanley Cohen ( University of Vanderbilt) a Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine in 1986 and was then later patented for cosmetic use by Greg Brown in 1989.

However, there is also research showing that its effect is no different from that of a placebo and that it may not even be effective when applied on the skin. EGF causes hair loss and is used commercially to remove wool from sheep. Clinical studies of EGF has also been reduced because of its toxicities, and at certain concentration and lengths of application, it may cause cells to overproliferate ( thus causing cancer ). There is no exact proof to this.

However i doubt that the EGF concentration here is anyway high at all, and probably below 0,5%  or much less than that, considering it’s rather cheap price. The price is very affordable like all Nature Republic products, and probably worth a try.

The Nature Republic EGF line will boost 3 products – lotion, essence, cream, eye cream and sooner or later, a BB cream!

Retailed for 28,000 Korean Wons / 40ml .
