    Hydagen® Aquaporin

    Booster of cellular water channels

    One of the fundamental processes of life is the transportation of water molecules through the surface layer of the cells. The structure of these channels has been clarified in the 1990s, and the corresponding proteins were named Aquaporins. The discovery of these water canals was awarded with the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 2003. BASF now makes one of the best-known Aquaporin-stimulating substances available to the broad cosmetic market: the active matter of Hydagen® Aquaporin is made of highly concentrated glyceryl glucoside. Clinical studies prove that Hydagen® Aquaporin boosts the moisturizing capacity of glycerin, for an instant and 24 hours hydration.
