Specialised cells called stem cells make growth factors naturally as part of our body’s ongoing damage repair and renewal process. Growth factors (GFs) mediate a myriad of pathways to enable regeneration, for example stimulating fibroblast cells in the skin to make new collagen.
Collagen is a much talked about protein, essential for the integrity of the skin. Its levels peak in our early 20s and then deplete 1-2% a year. Women in their first five years of menopause will lose around a third of their current collagen levels.
