Key Ingredients

Icelandic Water – Clean, soft, and pure, as it is geologically filtered through layers of inert volcanic lava, with a low concentration of hard minerals such as calcium and magnesium.

Hyaluronic Acid – A vital substance naturally found in skin. It is critical for maintaining skin hydration. Known for its incredible capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture. Hydrates and plumps the skin.

Vitamin E – One of the most well-known and researched antioxidants for the body and for the skin. It naturally occurs in human skin but can become depleted due to constant environmental exposure in the absence of sun protection. Helps protect the skin from environmental aggressors like free radicals, as well as improving skin texture and tone.

Barley EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor) – Moisture-binding and skin-rejuvenating signaling protein. The first of its kind to be produced in plants by BIOEFFECT scientists to combat the visible effects from the loss of the EGF found in our skin naturally. Barley EGF helps support the skin’s natural collagen production and helps keep skin looking smooth and healthy.

Great products

I have never heard of this company before until a few months ago. I got the egf essence and a sample of the hydration cream. So far I'm loving them both. This is also the first time I see implemented an essence into my routine and it's going very well. My face is so soft and hydrated I can't wait to see the results after 15 days. The hydrating cream blew me away and didn't realize it was a water cream. I have oily skin and it's perfect for me. I use to use the tacha water cream but I don't know now. I am definitely recommending to all my family and friends. The quality is top notch and also appreciate the scientist for putting all the hard work into the product. It shows and I'm super pleased and excited for my new journey with you guys. Thank you ❤️

Great Moisturizer!

I have normal to oily skin that is often sensitive to thicker moisturizers; however, the BioEffect Hydrating Cream has not broken my skin out once and seems to keep my occasional hormonal acne at bay. The Hydrating Cream will be amazing when my skin gets drier in the winter. I will continue to purchase the Hydrating Cream and EGF Serum as long as I can afford them. Best products ever! Highly recommend. I also recently purchased the BioEffect face mask but have yet to try it, so I look forward to seeing the results from the face mask as well.

Very sticky and heavy

I found the moisturizer on my oily skin too heavy and suffocating. Extremely sticky and disappointing for the price tag. I wish I paid close attention to their return policy. Please be aware that once opened they won't accept returns.

I use this hydrating cream after I have applied my BIOEFFECT EGF Serum in both my morning and evening routines. I am just a few months away from my 80th birthday, and I am very pleased and encouraged by the improvements I have seen in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as my skin's tone, texture and firmness. BIOEFFECT skincare is expensive, but it works wonders on your skin and a little goes a long way. I highly recommend their skincare line.

Bottom line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent moisturizing yet lightweight

The BioEffect Hydrating Cream is an excellent moisturizer without being heavy or greasy. It just works!! My aging, dry and sensitive skin responds so well to the BioEffect Hydrating Cream. I pair it in the evening with the BioEffect serum and my skin is ready for sleep. I am thrilled that I have found these BioEffect product line and will remain a regular and enthusiastic user.

Holy Grail of skin serum for me!!

I love the BioEffect serum. I have sensitive, dry, mature and rosacea skin. This serum is wonderful and soothing for my skin. It has lasting moisturizing for me and my skin is very soft and comfortable. I use the serum at night and then I apply the BioEffect moisturizing cream. I am good to go for the night. I am so happy that I found the BioEffect products and I will continue using them.

Amazing hydrating product

This really is a great product. I was in the market for a new moisturizing lotion and found this on Men's health as a recommendation. The minute you put this on, your face feels hydrated and it certainly carries over for the night and day. Highly recommended.

My favorite face cream!

A friend recommended this to me knowing how necessary non-greasy face cream is to me. As I live in a humid area, I cannot stand any tiny bit of oily feeling after applying face cream. This fragrance-free cream gives a refreshing touch on the skin and a perfect amount of hydration that lasts all day, which wonderfully tames my slightly oily skin. This cream has become my favorite. Will definitely need to get more of them!

I have been getting lots of compliments lately about my "glow" and I have to give credit to the this face cream. I use it morning and night. I'm excited to try other products from them and am thrilled to have found something that works well for me. My skin hasn't looked this good in years! Would recommend this to my friends!

Remarkable Change

I am 69years old and started using BioEffect 2months ago I am amazed at the difference I and many others have seen in my skin. I live in a dry climate at high altitude where it's difficult to keep my skin hydrated. All of the products I have used from BioEffect have resulted in tremendous improvement in the appearance and texture of my skin I HIGHLY recommend this line of skin care and am a complete convert

Absolutely must buy!

As a 30 year old male, I'm always on the hunt for skincare that acts as both an anti aging mechanism and provides daily moisturizing elements. I think I've met my match here! I have combination oily skin and finding a moisturizer that doesn't make me look like a pan of oil by the end of the day is nearly impossible. This moisturizer feels elegant when I put it on, instantly gives my skin a matte- look and protects me from looking oily by noon. I will be buying over and over.

LOVE! Can't Live Without It!

This has by far become my favorite moisturiser and one of the best I have ever tried! Not only does only it leave my skin super hydrated and soft all day long but the texture is incredible. It's deliciously creamy, rich, and luxe. It feels amazing and melts right into my skin without leaving it oily or sticky. Even my makeup application looks softer and more flawless. Fragrance free ✅ Alcohol free ✅ Oil free ✅ I'm really so impressed. I can't recommend this moisturizer enough!

One of the best moisturizers I have tried!

Love this moisturizer! I use it every morning and night! It has the perfect texture and absorbs quickly into the skin and it doesn't feel sticky or greasy so it works perfectly under makeup! It's one of the greatest hydrating creams I've ever used. My skin feels super soft and hydrated. I highly recommend this product. Well done BIOEFFECT.

Blown away!!

I must say, I had high hopes for this moisturizer but it has somehow managed to surpass all of them! I have very sensitive skin (rosacea), so it cannot handle anything with fragrance or oil, and I've struggled to find a moisturizer that is suitable for my skin but still provides it with the hydration it needs. After only using this for 5 days my skin is completely calm, balanced, and softer than ever! 10/10 would recommend!
