Hyaluronic acid - small molecule, big impact
Medicine and beauty alike have been in love with hyaluronic acid for decades, as it helps us keep our musculoskeletal system intact, heal our wounds faster and gets the youthful feeling in our hearts back onto our faces. Like tiny little pillars that support a bridge so we can get straight from A to B, the small molecule
helps support collagens and elastin fibers, in order for our skin to not collapse under the burden of time and maintain a straight surface. In order to do so, hyaluronic acid spares no efforts and binds up to six thousand times its own weight in water. As a result, we can enjoy smoother, suppler and better hydrated skin.
What is hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide, a chain of sugar molecules, that can bind water. Hyaluronic acid occurs in the human body – in the skin, the joint fluid or the vitreous body of the eye. We distinguish low molecular and high molecular hyaluronic acid.
Why do we need hyaluronic acid?
Hyaluronic acid plays a crucial role in a smoothly functioning musculoskeletal system. The small molecules are also present in our skin, where they support collagens and elastin fibres and keep skin plump and firm. From about the 25th year of our lives onwards, the body’s own production in hyaluronic acid decreases. The results are fine lines and wrinkles. Applying hyaluronic acid, the appearance of both can be diminished.
What is hyaluronic acid made of?
Hyaluronic acid can by synthesized from various materials. We use vegetable glucose, so it doesn’t contain any animal protein and therefore has almost no allergic potential.
What is the difference between
low molecular and high molecular hyaluronic acid?
High molecular hyaluronic acid consists of larger molecules that cannot penetrate into the skin very deeply and therefore form a moisture binding film on the skin’s surface. The small molecules of low molecular hyaluronic acid can be retained in the skin’s connective tissue and counteract wrinkles in the long term, since they bind moisture and therefore naturally plump skin from within.
