Moisturizing Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid 1% (Sodium Hyaluronate) is a natural product of the biofermentation of Yeast with Glucose and Inorganic Salts. Recognized as the most effective moisturizer ever discovered, a 1% aqueous solution is incredibly effective, even at 0.1-1%, where the biofermentation is capable of holding up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture. During manufacturing, special attention is paid to maintaining purity, and its high relative molecular mass, being made up of long chain, unbranched, disacharide untis, consisting of glucuronic acid and n-acetylglucosamine. The high viscosity of Hyaluronic Acid derives from the very pronounced hydrophilic characteristics of Hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic Acid 1% is a viscous gel solution that spreads across the skin smoothly and without drag. In connective tissues Hyaluronic Acid fills the space between, collagen and elastin bundles, and the cells, and is responsible for the visco-elastic characteristics of the tissues, especially in the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid has recently been used to create Hylaform Gel, an FDA Approved injectable material that aestheticians, and plastic surgeons, have predicted will replace collagen injections because; the risk of reaction is lower (most collagen being of bovine origin), the Hylaform Gel is more effective, and the results are longer lasting than those of collagen injections.
Due to its high, relative, molecular mass Hyaluronic acid is not absorbed once applied to the skin, instead forming a thin, light permeable, invisible, visco-elastic surface film, like that of the skin, that fixes the moisture on the surface of the skin that helps to preserve the principal characteristics of young, healthy skin, such as smoothness, elasticity, and tone, and supporting the skins natural protective mechanism.
Hyaluronic Acid 1% is such an excellent water reservoir, and ideal lubricant, that when it is incorporated into cosmetics, it leads to a perceptible, and visible improvement, in skin condition ... the corner stone of every anti-aging product and all mature / dry skin treatments.
