Posted by Lara Schimweg on
Betaine werden aus Rüben gewonnen

INCI: Betaines

Effect: moisturizing, reduces surfactants

Tolerability: very good

Betaine is an amino acid extracted from beets. Betaine moisturizes the skin. The special thing about betaine is that it is an osmolyte. For your skin, this means that the molecules control the cell water so that the skin layer always stays nice and moist .

The secret superpower of Betaine: In shampoos or cleaners , it mitigates aggressive surfactants (washing substances). This is particularly nice for stressed, sensitive, dry skin, because aggressive surfactants wash out too much oil from the skin.
