Betaine. GENENCARE® OSMS BA by DuPont acts a moisturizing, natural osmoprotectant and conditioning agent as well as brings sensorial benefits in many applications. It is a hygroscopic, amino-acid derivative which naturally occurs in plants and animals. It is a 100% bio-based, highly purified anhydrous betaine micronized powder, extracted from sugar beet. It significantly increases the strength of tight junctions connecting keratinocytes in the granular layer of the epidermis. It protects the cells from environmental stress like oxidative (UV radiations) and thermal stress (dehydration) by controlling cell water balance. 3% GENENCARE® OSMS BA decreases the visual dryness and transepidermal water loss (TEWL). The mixture of 2% GENENCARE® OSMS BA and 4% glycerin with 4% GENENCARE® OSMS BA reduces stickiness, improves spreadability and silky after-feel. It strengthens hair and protects against heat damages. It mitigates the irritation of surfactants and increases water retention capacity of hair fibers. It improves hair shine, soft feel and gives more luxurious, more stable and richer foam. It is readily soluble in water and therefore easy to formulate. It gives colorless solutions and is compatible with most ingredients allowing a wide range of applications. It finds application in formulating color cosmetics, skin care and hair care products. It can also be used as formulation aid to ease polymeric thickeners (carbomers) dispersions and swelling.
