AQ Skin Solutions is an award-winning cosmeceutical skincare range from California that specializes in the production of Growth Factors (GFs).
Dr. Ahmed Al-Qahtani, founder of AQ Skin Solutions, was inspired to start AQ after extensive work in medical applications of Growth Factors in healing wounded tissue and creating artificial skin grafts.
What are growth factors and why are they so important in skincare?
Growth factors are natural substances made by skin cells to maintain healthy skin. They are responsible for supporting the repair of damaged skin, making components that provide firmness and elasticity to the skin while helping to maintain skin’s protective functions, including retaining moisture. They are key messaging molecules that control how your cells function and behave.
They are not growth hormones; instead, they are cell regulators and cell communicators.
Ageing and sun damaged skin require Growth Factors to rejuvenate itself, however, cells in ageing skin produce less GF than cells in youthful skin.
One approach to support the level of skin rejuvenation is to regularly use skincare products with a high concentration of stable human growth factor.
Did you know?
Plant-derived GFs are not capable of regulating human cells as growth factors are species specific (an apple’s DNA and a human’s DNA are completely different).
