About Growth Factors

AQ’s GF technology refers to an advanced, innovative method of producing human growth factors and employing them in topical cosmeceuticals. Growth factors (GFs) are a group of specialized, fragile proteins that act as chemical messengers between many cell types. Critical for the activation of cellular functions, GFs are found naturally in the human body, specifically fibroblast cells. Selective growth factors play a role in increasing cell production, cell division, blood vessel production, and collagen and elastin production.

Combining authentic research with advanced clinical experience, AQ employs a proprietary blend of the appropriate combination and concentration of applicable GFs in Growth Factor Induced Therapy (GFIT).

Cutting-Edge Growth Factor Technology

AQ Skin Solutions GF Technology was originally discovered through wound healing and cell regeneration therapy in 3rd degree burn victims. Consistent medical research has proven that when formulated correctly, patented GF-technology holds the potential to reverse the cell ageing process, fade scars, and boost the body’s natural repair process regarding skin, hair follicles and vaginal walls. AQ’s breakthrough research revealed how to effectively maximise the retention of GFs for greatest penetration and effectiveness. 

“The decrease in growth factor production, along with damage caused by UV light, pollution, and toxins, cause the skin to wrinkle, lose elasticity and pigment.”

Consequences of environmental exposure in addition to the normal processes of aging result in excessive free radical damage and the breakdown of collagen and elastin. This type of damage eventually impairs growth factor function, reducing the body’s ability to repair oxidative damage and prompting the need for supplementation.

AQ cosmeceutical serums contain conditioned media known to retain the highest quality of specific growth factors, cytokines and interleukins that accelerate the regenerative process. Using advanced cell sorting technology, AQ Skin Solutions GF serums were formulated utilising the screened, immortalised fibroblast cell lines protected by 4 Patents within the U.S., E.U., Japan, and Korea ( US 8,518,879, US 8,877,494, US 9,119,974), EU (2680865), Japan (5981947), and Korea (10-2013-7026105).
