Adenosine Skin Benefits:
Adenosine is the nucleoside that is most commonly associated with the body’s energy-transferring processes. It is present in adenosine triphosphate (ATP), an essential biological and chemical signaling molecule. Due to its high-biological profile, adenosine uses in skincare have grabbed the attention of cosmetic companies. As a result, studies have shown the use of adenosine for skin can be an effective method for providing anti-aging benefits. When applied topically, adenosine-containing products showed significant improvements in the visible signs of aging as well as improving skin smoothness. 1 For this reason, adenosine can most commonly be found in moisturizing skincare products such as creams or serums.
