I use minimal cosmetics and skin products and, frankly, had never utilized any products I felt I needed to recommend to others until I found DHC products. Though relatively expensive I have found them to be high quality products that deliver on their promises and are worth sharing with your friends. Epidural Growth Factor Cream (EGF) is a cream intended to replenish the naturally occuring polypeptides in your skin lost with aging and restore elastisity. Reportedly "Enriched with vitamins A, C and E, essential amino acids and nourishing botanicals" one negative with DHC is that they do not appear to readily list their ingredients on their site or in their catalogue. As a woman in my late 40's I am beginning to see the effects of time with fine (and, OK, not so fine!) wrinkles around the eyes and short term use (a week) of this product certainly made my skin look and feel more supple and 'plumper'. It is a thick product and better for nighttime use as it does take more time to be absorbed.
