Ektoin eczema gel is a product of an innovative composition designed to treat inflammatory conditions on the skin. It is formulated on the basis of ectoin, glycyrrhizic acid and allantoin in a bioadhesive gel substrate. Owing to ectoine and glycyrrhizic acid, it effectively protects the skin barrier and reduces inflammatory processes in the skin, restores damaged skin and helps with dry, irritated skin. The bioadhesive gel substrate provides a longer-term contact of the treated skin region with active principles and their prolonged release.
- glycyrrhizinic acid
Ectoine is a natural substance isolated from the phototrophic Ectothiorhodospira halochloris. This bacteria survives in extreme salty, alkaline lakes of Egypt at temperatures between 47°C and 50°C and as an adaptive response to these conditions, the bacterium synthesizes an ectoine that forms a protective hydrating layer around the biomolecules, ectoine-hydro-complex and creates a stable mechanical barrier on the skin surface. By this mechanism, ectoine protects the epithelium from allergens and other harmful substances, which is manifested by a reduction or complete absence of hypersensitivity reaction, as well as by preventing skin dehydration. Positive effects of ectoins on the skin immune system have been used in the treatment of inflammatory dermatitis (atopic, contact and psoriasis), resulting in strengthening of the skin barrier and prevention of transepidermal loss of water.
Glycyrrhizic acid, isolated from the root of liquorice (lat. Glycyrrhiza glabra), shows anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial and antiviral action. It has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect that can be compared with the effect of synthetic corticosteroids but does not show harmful effects. Owing to its action, it is applied in products for the treatment of atopic, as well as of all types dermatitis accompanied by inflammation.
Alantoin je prirodna supstanca koja podstiče epitelizaciju i obnavljanje ćelija kože, a u kombinaciji sa ektoinom i glicirizinskom kiselinom, doprinosi bržoj regeneraciji kože i saniranju posledica inflamacije.
Allantoin is a natural substance that stimulates the epithelialization and regeneration of the skin cells, and in combination with ectoin and glycyrrhizic acid, contributes to faster regeneration of the skin and remediation of the consequences of inflammation.
The bioadhesive gel substrate has an epithelial effect, allows the gradual and continuous release of active principles at the site of application, allowing for their longer retention on the skin.
Ektoin eczema gel helps with irritation, redness and itchiness of the skin, protects the skin from harmful environmental factors and strengthens the barrier function of the skin.
- atopic dermatitis
- contact dermatitis
- any changes on the skin followed by itching, redness and flaking of the skin.
