    Best menopause skincare solutions

    BIOEFFECT skincare for menopause

    Bioeffect is a longstanding skincare brand, which is said to have been a firm favourite with the late Karl Lagerfeld. 

    The range has been created using a protein titled Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), which is similar to those found in your cells that produce collagen, made from natural resources found in Iceland. Not only does it reduce the appearance of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles, but it hydrates the skin deep into the dermis.

    The BHA is a firm favourite, but for those wanting an intense anti-ageing skincare essential, look to the Repair Moisturiser from the brand’s Resist collection.
