Betaine is a naturally derived ingredient, an amino acid. Also known as Trimethylglycine or glycinebetaine. It is obtained from the process of making sugar out of sugar beets. Being an osmolyte, its structure allows to attract water and help maintain cell water balance. Betaine reduces the ability of water molecules to solvate proteins, thus stabilizing the native protein structures. It primarily functions as a humectant and anti-irritant in cosmetic products, is prone to hydrogen bonding. It is identified as anti-melanogenic agent. Accumulated evidence has shown that betaine has anti-inflammatory functions in numerous diseases.
Rice starch is extracted from rice corns. The spherical shape and solid surface of white microspheres make it one of the most effective cosmetic exfoliating products.

Rice microspheres effectively remove dead skin cells, minimize pores and open pores for cleaning, without breaking the protective lipid barrier of the skin down and without stimulating fat glands. They produce a glowing skin feeling and healthy look, while leaving it soft and smooth.
