What is Inositol Powder?

Inositol is a cyclic polyol with the chemical formula C6H12O6, also known as cyclohexanehexol. Its molecular structure is similar to glucose, but all six carbon atoms carry hydroxyl groups (OH), forming a six-membered ring with one hydroxyl group substituted on each carbon atom.

Inositol has multiple stereoisomers in nature, but the most common natural form is cis-1,2,3,5-trans-4,6-cyclohexanehexol, also known as myo-Inositol. In theory, due to the presence of a ring structure and multiple chiral centers, inositol can have a variety of different stereoisomers, but myo-Inositol is the most common one.

In the industrial and scientific fields, inositol is used as a raw material to make a variety of chemicals, including drugs, food additives and cosmetic ingredients. Derivatives of inositol, such as inositol hexaphosphate (phytic acid), are used as antioxidants and chelating agents in the food industry, while in cosmetics, inositol and its derivatives are widely used for their moisturizing and nourishing properties.

Inositol Powder Prominent Applications in Cosmetics

Inositol Powder attracts and retains water, making it a highly effective moisturizer. It forms a moisturizing film on the surface of the skin, reducing evaporation while penetrating deeper into the skin to help cells retain moisture, making the skin appear plumper, softer, and more elastic.

Skin Barrier Repair
Inositol Powder helps strengthen the skin’s natural barrier function and repair damaged stratum corneum. This is particularly beneficial for dry, sensitive, or damaged skin, as it reduces the damage of external irritants and improves the overall health of the skin.

Promotes the absorption of nutrients
Inositol Powder has good skin permeability, which means that it can not only penetrate deep into the skin itself, but also carry other active ingredients through the stratum corneum to increase the effective utilization of other ingredients. This is especially important in complex formula cosmetics.

Antioxidant Protection
As a natural antioxidant, Inositol Powder can help the skin resist free radical damage and reduce oxidative stress caused by UV rays, pollution, and other environmental factors. Long-term use of products containing inositol can help prevent skin aging and keep the skin youthful.

Improves skin texture and evens out skin tone
Inositol Powder promotes skin metabolism, helps to reduce spots, improves skin texture, and makes skin tone look more even. It also regulates the function of epidermal keratinocytes, helping the skin maintain a normal renewal cycle.

Anti-inflammatory and soothing effects
For sensitive or inflammatory skin conditions, the anti-inflammatory properties of Inositol Powder can provide a soothing effect, reducing redness and discomfort.

Non-comedogenicity and safety
Inositol Powder is considered a low-risk cosmetic ingredient and is safe for most people, including pregnant women. It is non-comedogenic, will not clog pores, and is suitable for all skin types.
