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 manufacture, special attention is paid to maintaining purity, and its high relative molecular mass, being made up of long chain, unbranched, disaccharide units, consisting of glucuronic acid and n-acetylglucosamine. The high viscosity of Hyaluronic Acid derives from the very pronounced hydrophilic characteristics of Hyaluronic acid. Soap & More Hyaluronic Acid is preserved naturally with Gluconolactone and Sodium Benzoate, unlike most on the market that are aggressively preserved with petro's, formaldehyde donors, and parabens.
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.
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, to support the skin’s natural protective mechanism.
Hyaluronic Acid 1% is such an excellent water reservoir, and ideal lubricant, that when 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.
Water Holding Capacity of Common Cosmetic Moisturizers
Table 1 Illustrates that Hyaluronic Acid is 460 times more powerful than the even the leading moisturizer, Sodium Lactate.
