DESCRIPTION: Betaine acts as a moisturizing, anti-irritant, anti-wrinkle, anti-inflammatory, protective and smoothing active. This non toxic  betaine anhydrous (99%) is extracted from sugar beet molasses and vinasses. It attracts water and maintains cell water balance. Protects cellular macromolecules from external disturbance. It reduces stickiness for better skin feel with soft and smooth feel. It also works as a co-solubilizer & delivers richer and more luxurious foam. 

BENEFITS

In skin care applications, it maintains the moisture balance of the skin in a natural way and strengthens skin barrier by improving tight junction’s integrity. It protects skin against inflammation. In hair care applications, it moisturizes hair, strengthens hair fibers to make hair naturally shiny and more elastic. It reduces irritancy of surfactants and protects scalp.

Ongoing studies have shown betaine can also improve tight skin junction integrity. Tight junctions are protein complexes that prevent leakage of solutes and water between the cells. Tight junctions have been suggested to contribute in the prevention of penetration of harmful substances, such as allergens, pollutants, etc. into the skin. Additionally, tight junctions aid in preventing water loss through the skin. Therefore, by improving tight junction integrity, betaine increases the hydration status of the skin and also protects the skin from harmful environmental substances.

Betaine also functions as a texture enhancer in cosmetics and personal care products. It is known to provide a silky feel to skin care preparations without causing tackiness. Betaine also has the ability to increase the swelling speed of some hydrophilic thickeners and enhancers their thickening power by 20% on average. Additionally, when betaine is added to formulations containing surfactants, it has been shown to increase foam volume and reduce irritation potential of surfactants. This property of betaine is ideal for shampoos, especially when used to formulate a delicate, easy-rinse baby shampoo that contains a low amount of surfactants.
