Growth Factors
Recombinant protein of Growth Factor

BiocurePharm already manufactured the product that made with ASCM(adipose stem cell culture media) to control and cure hair growth. But, there were issues in law to use ASCM.
BiocurePharm developed some individual growth factor of ASCM using recombinant microorganism. Each growth factors can use functional cosmetic ingredients and those are known the roles those have fuctions such as hair care, skin whitening, and skin regeneration.

Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) (sh-Polypeptide-9)
• Simulation of hair follicular formation and hair growth
• Tissue growth via blood vessel development and support
• Control of perifollicular vascularization during hair cycling
• Enhanced perifollicular vascularization, accelerated hair regrowth after depilation, and increased size of vibrissa follicles, hair follicles, and hair shafts
Insulin like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) (rh-Oligopeptide-2)
• Promotes cell division of hair matrix cells
• Promotes hair growth by proliferating keratinocytes
• Antiapoptotic function-prevents cell death
• Prevents hair from entering the resting phase
• Prolongs hair growth and reduces hair loss
Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF2) (sh-Polypeptide-1)
• Formation and maintenance of perifollicular blood vessel
• Skin appendage morphogenesis and their formation
• Protection against radiation-induced damage
• Promotes anagen
Transforming Growth Factor Beta (TGF-β) (rh-Polypeptie-22)
• Wound healing
• Stimulating epidermal cell growth in wound healing
• Stimulating collagen synthesis and wrinkle recovery
• Hair growth by stimulating hair follicle formation
Epidermal growth factor (EGF) (rh-Oligopeptide-1)
• Induces production of collagen and elastin
• Keeps skin firmness
• Reduces wrinkles
