Sodium Hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid, HA), the sodium
salt of hyaluronic acid is a liar high molecular weight
mucopolysaccharide compose by thousands of repeating
disaccharide units of D-glucuronic acid and N-acetyl-D-glucosamine.
Health Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid
1. Compared with other humectants, HA is less affected by the environment, as it has the highest hygroscopic capacity in relatively low humidity, while has the lowest hygroscopic capacity in relatively high humidity. HA is widely well known in the cosmetic industry as an excellent moisturizer and is called the “Ideal Natural Moisturizing Factor”.
2. High molecular weight HA has good lubricity and film~forming properties. When applying cosmetic containing high molecular weight HA to the skin, the trans~epidermal water loss (TEWL) is reduced and skin becomes tender and glossy.
3. Low molecular weight HA can partly penetrate into the skin and nourish it from inside. When different molecular weighs HA are used simultaneously in the same cosmetic formulation, it can have synergetic effects, to activate global moisturizing and multiple skincare functions.More skin moisture and less trans-epidermal water loss keep the skin beautiful and healthy.
