INGREDIENT GLOSSARY • Anti-Aging
AT A GLANCE
A growth factor peptide that stimulates the growth and proliferation of fibroblasts, the dermal cells that make collagen.
Also known as Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (basic FGF), this ingredient belongs to a special class of peptides known as growth factors. Growth factors bind to special growth factor receptors on specific cells to stimulate cell growth and regeneration. Basic FGF works with fibroblasts, the skin cells that produce collagen and elastin, and stimulate them to grow faster and healthier. More healthy fibroblasts means more collagen and elastin, which means firmer, bouncier skin.
