ectoine: discover the benefits of this active ingredient for eye health

Ectoine is a resistant molecule, which helps promote immediate and continuous hydration for dry eyes, reducing inflammatory and allergic eye symptoms.


Our eyes are extremely vulnerable to diseases and discomfort. As a result, Several factors can affect eye health, such as: pollution, solar radiation, temperature, stress, external injuries and genetic causes.

In that regard, The most recommended treatment method for dry eyes is the use of eye drops..
