From Natural, Renewable and Sustainable Sourcing

Betuinno™ Betulin is produced from upcycled certified forest industry side stream, birch bark. Thanks to the in-house designed production process technology, environmentally friendly and sustainable production solutions are used to lower the carbon footprint to the minimum.

 

Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Betulin has anti-inflammatory properties that can help soothe and calm irritated skin. It is particularly beneficial for those with sensitive or reactive skin, as it can reduce redness and inflammation.

 

Potent Antioxidant

Betulin is a potent antioxidant, which means it can help protect the skin from free radical damage. This can help prevent premature aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.

 

Skin Regeneration Stimulation

Betulin can stimulate collagen production and promote skin cell regeneration. This can lead to improved skin texture, increased firmness, and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

Deep Moisturizing

Betulin helps to lock in moisture and maintain skin hydration, which makes it ideal ingredient in moisturizers and hydrating skincare products.

 

Skin Barrier Support

Betulin strengthens the skin’s natural barrier function, helping to prevent moisture loss and protect the skin from environmental stressors.

 

Skin Healing

Betulin promotes skin healing and regeneration. It can help in the recovery of damaged or injured skin, making it useful in products for scar reduction or wound healing.

 

Low Allergenicity

Betulin is generally considered to be well-tolerated by most skin types and is less likely to cause allergic reactions or sensitivities.
