Latest scientific evidence confirms, that air pollution contributes to premature skin aging and may even be the primary cause of extrinsic aging in some cases. Especially for airborne particulate matter (PM) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) negative influence on skin integrity has been shown.
Several studies concluded a connection between pollutants and wrinkle as well as pigment spot formation. Air pollutants may not only induce skin aging but are also linked to causing or worsening acne, atopic dermatitis, eczema or allergies.
The relevance of these scientific findings, showing the damaging impact of air pollution on human skin, touches upon aspects of both, prevention and therapy.
Ectoin® (INCI: Ectoin), a safe, well-studied multifunctional cosmetic active with global cell protection and skin repairing properties, shows excellent anti-pollution efficacy. So far, it is the only anti-pollution active, which is also approved for medical applications like lung inhalation for the treatment and prevention of pollution induced COPD and asthma.
On skin, the natural amino acid derivate shows a dual anti-pollution activity: global protection from various pollutants (including PM in all sizes, PAHs, heavy metals, allergens) and powerful regeneration of environmentally damaged skin.
Ectoin® is EcoCert, COSMOS, Natrue approved, China listed and “Made in Germany”.
