Frequently Asked Questions
About the Science
A: DNAEGF Renewal is a bio-advanced skin care protocol designed to effectively target aging at the core to repair the past and protect the future. Based on 25 years of rigorous, clinical research Dr. Ronald L. Moy’s DNAEGF Renewal targets and counteracts all the major signs of aging skin with two patented, scientific breakthroughs – plant-based Barley Epidermal Growth Factor and DNA Repair Enzymes. The bio-advanced formulas work with the natural processes of the skin to help modify skin behavior with cellular activators that restore aging cells, visibly improving appearance, while shielding skin against further damage from the environment, pollution, and natural metabolic functions.
A: The DNAEGF Renewal skin care products include specialized DNA Repair Enzymes that address the complex changes cells undergo when they are attacked with UV and oxidative stressors. Once damage is repaired and prevented, specially designed factors in the products help cells reproduce in the same manner as when skin was younger. The DNA Repair Enzymes immediately help restore cell function and initiate the self-repair cycle, while directing the cell’s natural lipid production to create and hold moisture more effectively.
Q: What is plant-based Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) and how does it make a difference in the products?
A: A state-of-the-art biotech firm renowned for its medical and scientific research discovered plant-based Barley Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), a peptide drawn from a unique form of barley. The Barley EGF is proven to help the skin’s natural repair process and activate the regeneration of young, healthy cells. Unlike other products, DNAEGF Renewal is the first and only skin care line to contain this revolutionary EGF, an animal-free, non-bacterial growth factor. Other, unstable growth factors are typically derived from E. Coli bacteria and degrade over a period of weeks, thereby loosing their potency and effectiveness when stored at normal room temperatures.
A: Dissatisfied with traditional forms of epidermal growth factor, which are unstable and quickly lose their effectiveness, Dr. Moy researched worldwide sources for a more stable and potent form of EGF. In a remote bio-tech firm, he found a unique strain of the barley plant which was the basis for the epidermal growth factor which provides powerful skin regeneration results. Dr. Moy was so impressed with the stability and effectiveness of the bio-advanced EGF that he immediately began formulating with the remarkable ingredient as the core component to targeting skin aging in his product line. It is part of an exciting ongoing clinical study conducted by Dr. Moy.
A: A world-renowned derma-surgeon, facial plastic surgeon, and skin cancer specialist, Ronald L. Moy, M.D. spent decades of rigorous clinical research in the pursuit of perfect skin. His research spanned a wide range of disciplines, from molecular biology to genetics to oncology, and led to his definitive textbook on wound healing. During his research, Dr. Moy found clinical evidence that DNA Repair Enzymes can improve dermal functions, actually making skin resistant to aging. Dr. Moy, with the assistance of leading molecular genetics researchers, used the data from these studies on photobiology, solar damage, and cell signaling to create the ultimate remedy for aging skin: DNAEGF Renewal. This bio-advanced, comprehensive protocol visibly transforms skin, while protecting it from future damage. Each formula has undergone rigorous testing on a wide range of patients, with significant, visible improvement.
About the Products
A: Due to the nature of his profession as a practicing dermatologist specializing in photodamage (damage from the sun’s UV rays), Dr. Moy is constantly treating and correcting skin ravaged by environmental assaults and premature aging. DNAEGF Renewal was born from a desire to give his patients and others who strive to restore their skin to a more youthful, healthier state, a range of products that would target aging from the inside-out in a non-invasive, topical cosmetic application to essentially repair past damage and protect the skin from future damage.
DNAEGF Renewal is a culmination of decades of research applied to an expert knowledge of skin physiology. It was specifically designed to shield skin cells from all three sources of oxidative damage - the environment, pollution and metabolism - thereby stopping the cascade of events that leads to cellular damage and thus address the visible signs of premature aging. The powerful combination of exclusive Barley Epidermal Growth Factor, active DNA Repair Enzymes, and high concentrations of select plant and marine actives helps the skin renew cells that are younger and healthier, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more radiant skin in just a few months.
A: DNAEGF Renewal IS the forefront of skin aging defense. It is the first physician formulated and approved, bio-advanced skin aging protocol to combine DNA Repair Enzymes with the first and only plant-based Barley Epidermal Growth Factor. The innovative combination targets skin cells at the core to repair past damage and protect against future damage. DNAEGF Renewal is the only product line able to offer the stable and potent plant-based Barley EGF, providing the skin with consistent performance actives that deliver proven results.
A: The collection consists of DNA Eye Renewal, DNA Intensive Renewal, DNA Night Renewal, and DNA Defense SPF 30+.
