Natural molecule offering anti-pollution benefits

German active ingredient supplier bitop explains why the natural extremolyte Ectoin is suited for cosmetic formulations for all skin types, matching various consumer demands and market trends such as anti-pollution, blue light protection and whitening

Human skin is situated at the interface of the organism and its environment and is therefore constantly exposed to numerous extrinsic stress factors. Chronic exposure to environmental conditions, including ultraviolet light (UV), blue light and air pollution has been shown to have a significant impact to skin health and ageing. 

It is an indisputable fact that cutaneous ageing is mainly driven by external stress factors, promoting the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), encouraging inflammation processes in tissues and cells and compromising the natural skin barrier

This results in an increase of trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), along with a decrease of skin thickness, skin elasticity and the occurrence of wrinkles and pigment spots. Additionally, dermatoses like rash, eczema, allergies, psoriasis and atopic dermatitis are caused or exacerbated by external influences.1
