More On Growth Factors 

Growth factors play a vital role in the growth, development, and repair of tissues in living organisms. In skincare, growth factors derived from plants, fruit, or snails have gained popularity due to their potential benefits for rejuvenating the skin. However, it is essential to understand that humans do not receive these growth factors in the same way as the organisms they are derived from, as we lack the specific receptors to interact with them effectively. Plant, Fruit, or Snail-Derived growth factors may not work for Humans due to receptor specificity and cross-species barriers.

Growth factors are signaling molecules that bind to specific receptors on the surface of cells to initiate various cellular responses. These receptors are like locks, and the growth factors are the keys that fit into them. The receptors for growth factors are highly specific to each species, ensuring that the growth factor signals are received only by the intended cells. While plants, fruit, or snails have receptors that recognize and respond to their own growth factors, human cells do not possess these same receptors.

Due to the differences in receptor specificity between species, the growth factors derived from plants, fruit, or snails cannot directly interact with human cells. Even though these growth factors might have beneficial properties for the organisms they come from, they cannot produce the same effects in human skin. The receptors on human cells simply do not recognize these foreign growth factors, making them ineffective in stimulating the intended cellular responses.

In addition to receptor specificity, growth factors from different organisms are structurally different. Proteins, including growth factors, are composed of unique sequences of amino acids that determine their biological activity. The specific arrangement of amino acids in plant, fruit, or snail-derived growth factors differs from those found in human-derived growth factors. As a result, human cells cannot process or utilize these foreign proteins in the same way they do with their own native growth factors.

While there is ongoing research on the potential benefits of plant, fruit, or snail-derived growth factors in skincare, it is essential to approach such products with caution. The lack of receptors for these growth factors in human cells raises concerns about their effectiveness and safety. Without the ability to target specific cells and tissues properly, there is a risk of undesired effects or potential adverse reactions on human skin.

In summary, the growth factors present in plants, fruit, or snails may have beneficial effects for the organisms they come from, but they are not received by humans in the same way. Our cells lack the specific receptors required to interact with these foreign growth factors effectively. As a result, growth factors derived from different species are not considered as effective or safe for direct use in human skincare. To achieve optimal results, it is best to focus on using growth factors that are naturally present in human skin or those that are specifically engineered to interact with human receptors effectively.
