The innovative natural active substance ectoin was first discovered in 1985 in microorganisms in the desert of Egypt in a salt lake. Highly adapted plant micro-organisms thrive there for millions of years in the most hostile regions of the world under extreme climatic conditions. They protect themselves with the help of Ectoin from drying out, great temperature fluctuations and damaging environmental factors.
Ectoin, also referred to as a "natural stress-protecting molecule", is capable of forming a protective coat of water molecules (hydrofilm) around the cell. It stabilizes the cell membrane and the skin barrier, inhibits inflammation, protects the skin from allergens and environmental pollutants. Light-protecting effects have also been demonstrated, so that ectoin helps to protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun and to improve the regeneration.
