Episode 15: Stem Cells, Growth Factors, and Peptides-Myth Busting

The subject of this show is near and dear to my heart. There is a lot of misinformation about stem cells, growth factors, and peptides, and I hope that this episode will provide clarity for you. 

Today, I break down why we need growth factors, and how they influence aging skin on a scientific level. I also talk about how peptides are made, which specific growth factors are most important for aging skin, the process we go through in creating and testing our growth factor and stem cell products at Osmosis Beauty, and more.


  • Why we need growth factors
  • What growth factors do
  • How peptides are made
  • The importance of growth factors
  • Are stem cells safe?
  • What inflammation is
  • Which growth factors are the most important
  • The phases of wound repair
  • New growth factor technology

“Growth factors are really important in increasing the new blood vessel formations.” 

– Dr. Ben Johnson
