What is Adenosine?

Adenosine is a compound found in the body that brings with it a multitude of benefits for the skin. Not only does it help with the health and thickness of your hair, but it also has a talent of cell communicating making it an important and highly effective ingredient especially when it is formulated into skincare products. With Adenosine taking on its cell-signalling role it is able to stimulate the skin and boost the production of collagen which helps improve the overall appearance and firmness of the face, with any signs of skin sagging being reversed. It also contains an anti-inflammatory agent allowing it to soothe the skin and repair any damage caused to the skin barrier after it comes into contact with all manner of free radicals and other environmental aggressors.

Side effects of Adenosine

Although it is a powerful skin ingredient there are some side effects that can occur if used incorrectly. Always ensure you have checked that your skin is happy with any product application before smearing it all over the skin.
