TEGO® Natural Betaine is a naturally occurring substance. It can be found in various species, like plants, animals as well as in human organism. It functions as an osmo-protectant as its amphoteric structure counteracts against osmotic pressure. In this way especially halophile organisms living in high salinity environments protected themselves from osmotic stress.
This ingredient is a natural amino acid derivative (trimethylglycin). Due to its structure, it is hygroscopic and has moisturizing properties. Its strong water binding capacity ensures retention of skin moisture.
TEGO® Natural Betaine is obtained from sugar beet molasses by an extraction process.
