Discovering the invigorating osmolyte

Next to GENENCARE® OSMS BA (Betaine), DuPont Industrial Biosciences has now added GENENCARE® OSMS MI (INCI name: Inositol also known as myo-inositol) to the family of all-natural osmolytes. Like betaine, myo-Inositol, is highly purified and suitable for many skin care applications. It is extracted from non-GM sugar beet, 100% biobased and Cosmos and Natrue certified.

This article focuses on myo-inositol and describes the many versatile functions of this ingredient in particular how it is involved in the regulation of three main elements in skin: energy, oxygen and water. 

This is reflected and supported by an improved skin elasticity of the face in a large clinical test where an O/W cream with 3% myo-inositol was applied for 5 weeks and compared to a placebo cream and to the start of treatment.

Nature has designed our skin to adjust to external stress factors thanks to osmoprotectants. As an active osmolyte, myo-inositol is involved in the regulation of three main elements in skin – energy, oxygen and water;  myo-inositol helps fight back the negative effects of stress and ageing by stimulating skin cells’ metabolism and by improving skin oxygenation and elasticity.
