SC Group (Spec-Chem Industry Inc.) highlights its natural cell-protecting agent for skin: SpecBio Ectoine (INCI: Ectoin).

Ectoin is reportedly the most prominent osmolyte in nature, helping organisms to survive extreme conditions in order to restore their normal cell volume. One source even described ectoin as "new niacinamide."
