WHITEPAPER: Unlock the Power of Nature with GENENCARE® OSMS
When skin is stressed by external aggressions (UV radiation, heat or cold environments), the water balance of skin cells is disturbed. Osmolytes have evolved in nature to manage skin water balance, reduce water stress and protect the living organism.
This article describes how osmolytes such as betaine and inositol contribute to skin protection, not only by protecting cells from dehydration, but also by preventing skin proteins from denaturation. Various in-vitro as well as in-vivo studies are presented, demonstrating the importance of osmolytes in personal care applications.DOWNLOAD WHITEPAPER
