Hydroxytyrosol is a phenolic compound derived from olive oil and the wastewater produced in the processing of olive oil, but it has a variety of biological and pharmacological activities and is often widely used in medicine, health care, food, and other industries. In recent years, hydroxytyrosol has been used more and more in the skin care industry.
When our skin is in contact with the outside world, it will constantly produce free radicals, damage cell structure, cause cell apoptosis, and even lead to dull skin, aging, sensitivity, and other conditions. Hydroxytyrosol has a strong ability to remove free radicals, and its antioxidant capacity exceeds that of vitamin C and anthocyanin. Moreover, hydroxytyrosol can also absorb and decompose ultraviolet rays, protect the skin from ultraviolet damage, and play a good role in removing oxygen-free radicals in the body. In addition, hydroxytyrosol can also repair the oxidative damage caused by skin. Hydroxytyrosol can be widely used in skin care products.
