An amino acid derivative,natural anti-aging ingredient Ectoine,Ectoin

Cosmate®ECT,Ectoine,Ectoin is an Amino Acid derivative,Ectoine is a small molecule and it has cosmotropic properties.Ectoine is a powerful, multifunctional active ingredient with outstanding, clinically proven efficacy. Cosmate®ECT,Ectoine is a natural amino acid derivate with membrane stabilizing and inflammation reducing capacities. It is produced by bacteria living under extreme harsh environmental conditions where it serves as osmoregulatory compatible solute. Cosmate®ECT (1,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2-methyl-4-pyrimidine carboxylic acid) is a widely distributed compatible solute accumulated by halophilic and halotolerant microorganisms to prevent osmotic stress in highly saline environments. Ectoine as a highly water keeping compound stabilizing biomolecules and whole cells can be used in skin care products.Ectoine, Ectoine is a natural protectant expressed by halophile bacteria to resist challenges of their natural environments, such as drought, heat or high salt concentrations. As a compatible solute, ectoine does not interfere with the cell’s metabolism even at high molar concentrations.as small organic molecules, occur widely in aerobic, chemoheterotrophic, and halophilic organisms that enable them to survive under extreme conditions. These organisms protect their biopolymers against dehydration caused by high temperature, salt concentration, and low water activity by substantial ectoine synthesis and enrichment within the cell. The organic osmolyte ectoine and hydroxyectoine are amphoteric, water-binding, organic molecules. Cosmate®ECT,Ectoine provides excellent anti-aging and cell-protection benefits. Ectoine repairs and improves damaged, aged or stressed and irritated skin, promotes skin barrier repair and long-term hydration. Ectoine shows comprehensive anti-pollution efficacy and blue light protection and supports a healthy skin microbiome – for a scientific approach in efficient anti-aging and skin protection concepts. Suitable for all skin types including sensitive, allergic and baby skin.
