What is hydroxytyrosol? Hangzhou Viablife Biotech Co., Ltd. We learned that hydroxytyrosol, also known as 3, 4-dihydroxy phenyl ethanol, is a white powder of the appearance of the compound, in petroleum ether, ether, and chloroform can not dissolve, but can be dissolved in methanol, DMSO, and other solvents, and it has a variety of activities.
Hydroxytyrosol is widely used in skin care, medicine, and other fields. What does hydroxytyrosol, the new favorite ingredient in skin care, do?
In the process of contact with the outside world, all tissues of the human body will constantly produce free radicals. For our human body, free radicals will destroy our cell structure and lead to cell apoptosis. Due to the excellent antioxidant properties and free radical scavenging ability of hydroxytyrosol, it plays an anti-free radical role. In our daily lives, our skin is very vulnerable to UV rays, and hydroxytyrosol can also absorb and break down UV rays, thus helping us to reduce skin damage from UV rays.
In addition, hydroxytyrosol also has a strong healing effect on the skin. When free radicals in our body compete for electrons in cells or gene protein molecules, they will destroy various physiological functions of cells, thus increasing the chances of skin mutation, cancer, and aging. Hydroxytyrosol can inhibit and reduce oxidative damage of cell DNA, help glutathione restore normal physiological functions, neutralize free radicals, and thus stabilize the activity of free radicals. Make it less invasive.
