ABSTRACT
The article reports that human growth factor and cytokine skin cream is good for renewing aged skin. Researchers in New York and New Jersey assessed the new collagen formation on 12 women volunteers after they applied a topical skin cream that was composed of human growth factors and cytokines. After that, they biopsied the preauricular skin area, which resulted to seven volunteers having an increase in smaller diameter collagen fibers. These results supported the findings of collagen formulation stimulation.
