Thiotaine

Ergothioneine (thiotaine) EGT is a multi-functional amino acid for Anti-Aging preparations with excellent dermatological acceptance. This substance, produced naturally in the body and evident as OCTN-1 transporter in dermal fibroblasts, is an extremely stable colorless and odorless antioxidant. It is clearly superior to ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10) as a radical interceptor. Thitaine is similar to L-Carnitine and thus also a very good skin energizer.

Thitaine is anti-inflammatory, protects against the loss of collagen and elastin by inhibiting the UVA-induced generation of stress factors such as MMP-1 (matrix metalloproteinases, directly destroying collagen). It also acts as an elastase inhibitor through the protective function of the qAP-1 enzyme and prevents UV-A induced direct damage to the DNA.
