What It Does
Ectoin® protects skin against environmental pollution, UVA/UVB rays, and light pollution including fluorescent, infrared and blue light. It prevents inflammation and premature signs of aging (dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles) caused by environmental stress factors.
Why It Works
Ectoin® is a natural extremolyte or stress protection molecule that stabilizes and protects skin cells including membranes and proteins from environmental and oxidative stress. The structure of our skin is composed of water layers on top of cell membranes. Ectoin® is a highly water-binding molecule that stabilizes the water structures, protecting skin against allergens, full UV spectrum light (including fluorescent, infrared and blue light), air pollution (including ultrafine particles), heat and dryness. As a result, it reduces inflammation, prevents premature signs of aging, and restores the skin barrier.
