Ectoine (1,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2-methyl-4-pyrimidinecarboxylic acid) is a natural compound found in several species of bacteria. It is a compatible solute which serves as a protective substance by acting as an osmolyte and thus helps organisms survive extreme osmotic stress. Ectoine is found in high concentrations in halophilic microorganisms and confers resistance towards salt and temperature stress. Ectoine was first identified in the microorganism Ectothiorhodospira halochloris, but has since been found in a wide range of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria.
(S)-1,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2-methyl-4-pyrimidinecarboxylic acid（ECTOINE） is also called tetrahydropyrimidinic acid. Eckdoren protects halophilic bacteria from harm. It has two functions:
1) Moisturizing: it is an important material to maintain osmotic pressure balance. Its unique molecular structure has a strong water chemical Book complexing ability, which can make the free water in cells structured. It is a very excellent natural moisturizer.
2) Repair: it can resist the damage of UV to the skin and repair the DNA damage caused by UV.
