Mechanism of Ectoine

Ectoin was discovered and impressive because it is part of extremophiles, and ectoine protect the extremophiles alive under extreme climate conditions, like ice desert, salt lake, hot spring, etc.

Ectoine is an amino acid derivate, which forms strong hydrogen bonds with water and stabilizes intermolecular, intra cell and cell membranes and protects against environmental stressors such as salinity, freezing, drying and high temperatures.

Therefore, Ectoine has the necessary properties and application in the cosmetic industry to protect the skin and cell from harmful conditions.
