Hydroxytyrosol, also known as 3, 4-dihydroxyphenyl ethanol, is a kind of white powder compound, insoluble in petroleum ether, ether, chloroform, soluble in methanol, DMSO and other solvents, has a variety of activities.
Hydroxytyrosol is widely used in skin care, medical care and other fields. As a new favorite in the skin care industry, what are the effects of hydroxytyrosol?
Hydroxytyrosol acts against free radicals. During contact with the outside world, the body’s tissues continuously produce free radicals, substances that can damage our cell structures and cause apoptosis. Hydroxytyrosol can play an anti-free radical role due to its excellent antioxidant properties and free radical scavenging ability. Our skin is easily exposed to UV rays, and hydroxytyrosol also helps reduce uv damage by absorbing and breaking it down.
Hydroxytyrosol also has a strong healing effect on skin. When we free radicals in the body in cell or gene protein molecules for the electron, the physiology function of this damage cells, thus increase the chances of variation, cancer and aging of the skin, and hydroxyl butyl alcohol inhibits cell DNA oxidative damage, reduce the oxidative DNA damage, to restore the normal physiological function of glutathione, still can and neutralize free radicals, Thus stabilizing the activity of free radicals and reducing their invasiveness.
