GENENCARE® OSMS BA
GENENCARE® OSMS BA is an osmolyte which enables moisturization and protection while providing sensorial advantage in personal care formulations. GENENCARE® OSMS BA is a natural product made from betaine anhydrous – found in sugar beets and separated as a co-product of sugar beet molasses.
Contributing to Moisturization 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 naturally occurs in the skin as a component of the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). It contributes 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.
