Adenosine is a compound that is naturally present in almost every cell of the human body. It consists of an adenine molecule linked to a ribose sugar molecule. It is one of the four nucleosides that make up the RNA molecule, and the phosphate forms of adenosine are responsible for the transfer of energy between cells. Although it has long been used in medicine to treat some heart conditions, this ingredient has only recently entered the cosmetic scene.
In cosmetics, it is used as an anti-aging ingredient to prevent and smooth wrinkles. One study from 2006, conducted on 126 women between the ages of 45 and 65, showed a significant improvement and smoothing of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and deep frown lines after just 2 weeks of using adenosine cream. Ordinary moisturizing creams, of course, can help prevent and smooth surface wrinkles and fine lines, but deep wrinkles can only be smoothed by a real and effective anti-aging ingredient, which adenosine definitely is. A study conducted in 2018 on a sample of 22 women of different age groups showed that adenosine has a positive effect on the density of the dermis, elasticity and hydration of the skin and leaves a visible long-term effect on the depth of wrinkles. In this, as well as in many other studies, no adverse effects caused by the use of cosmetic preparations with adenosine were observed.
Adenosine has been a hit in the formulations of Korean cosmetics for years and is completely safe, and even at very low concentrations it shows its beneficial effects on the skin.
Adenosine works by binding to receptors located in the skin. By which they become active and stimulate the production of collagen and new skin cells, neutralize free radicals and help alleviate inflammatory processes within the skin, which significantly contributes to reducing the appearance of signs of skin aging.
