The natural active ingredient ectoine was first discovered in 1985 in microorganisms in a salt lake in the desert of Egypt. Highly adapted, very resilient microorganisms have been thriving there for millions of years in the most hostile regions of the world under extreme climatic conditions. With the help of Ectoin, you protect yourself from dehydration, large temperature fluctuations and damaging environmental factors.

Ectoin, also known as the "natural stress protection molecule", is able to form a protective coat of water molecules (hydrofilm) around the cell. Ectoin stabilizes the cell membrane, strengthens the skin barrier and improves cell regeneration. Ectoin inhibits inflammation, reduces irritation and has a calming effect on irritated skin. Ectoin protects the skin from environmental skin aging. With its UV light-protective effect, Ectoin helps to protect the skin from the damaging effects of the sun.
