GENENCARE® OSMS BA

GENENCARE® OSMS BA

Natural betaine for skin, hair, and color cosmetics formulations

Osmolytes are nature’s secret to controlling water balance within living cells, by attracting and holding onto vital moisture. We have harnessed this hidden power to create GENENCARE® OSMS, our line of naturally-sourced osmolytes for skin, hair, and color cosmetics applications.

A Naturally-Sourced Bioactive Ingredient

The GENENCARE® OSMS BA is a highly purified anhydrous betaine, an osmolye which occurs naturally in the skin as a component of the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). 100% biobased and derived from non-GMO sugar beet, this amino-acid derivative is a natural osmoprotectant which offers many moisturization and protection benefits in personal care applications.

A Naturally-Sourced Bioactive Ingredient

Proven Benefits for Moisture and Protection in Skin Care

When skin is stressed by external aggressions (UV radiation, heat or cold environments), the water balance of skin cells is disturbed. GENENCARE® OSMS BA contribues to skin protection not only by protecting cells from dehydration, but also by preventing skin proteins from denaturation. Osmolytes’ strong water binding properties makes GENENCARE® OSMS BA an excellent moisturizer, which has been proven by many in-vitro and clinical tests.
