BIOEFFECT for menopause

Bioeffect is a longstanding skincare brand, which is said to have been a firm favourite with the late Karl Lagerfeld. 

The range has been created using a protein titled Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), which is similar to those found in your cells that produce collagen, made from natural resources found in Iceland. Not only does it reduce the appearance of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, but it hydrates the skin deep into the dermis.
