INGREDIENT GLOSSARY • Barrier Strengthener
AT A GLANCE
A growth factor peptide that targets capillaries, helping to provide nutrients to fibroblasts within the dermis.
Also known as Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), 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. VEGF stimulates vascular cells (such as capillaries), helping to increase the flow of nutrients to fibroblasts.
