The next generation

For two decades, Merck has invested its expertise into discovering new benefits of the active substance, RonaCare® Ectoin. We’ve now developed the next generation of this ingredient, RonaCare® Ectoin IQ, which has an even improved quality, ideal for satisfying the modern demands for clean beauty and dermocosmetics!

The natural compatible solute ectonie is a neutral non-ionic, strong water-binding, organic molecule of low molecular weight occurring in halophilic bacteria [Galinski E.A., 1993; Galinski et al. 1985]. In its natural habitat, this microorganism grows under extreme conditions such as intensive sun irradiation, high temperatures and extreme dryness and protects itself against these stresses by synthesising ectoine – a natural protective process to adopt and to survive!

Ectoine is a powerful molecule produced via biotechnological fermentation. It is used as an active cosmetic ingredient in RonaCare® Ectoin IQ to naturally activate the skin’s ability to: speed up the defense system, protect from ambient light – reducing damage from visible and infrared light, hydrate and encase moisture, provide skin cells with their own protective shell, to safeguard them from harmful, external influences.

1. Protection from environmental stress and pollution: Ambient- , Blue- Light, IR-A, temperature, dehydration, chemical irritants and pollutants 2. Super moisturizer: Long-term hydration & skin dehydration protection 3. Graceful aging & Well-being: Caring effect in sensitive/dry skin, wrinkle-reducing effect and enhanced wellness sensation in consumer studies

SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN

Extensive efficacy testing - in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo - make RonaCare® Ectoin an exceptional nature and science proven system to protect your skin against external factors.
Our studies demonstrate:
