Hyaluronic Acid: Vitaderm’s February Focus
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is also commonly known as hyaluronan or hyaluronate. It is broadly used in fillers, moisturisers and even capsules. It is a complex sugar that is found throughout the body. It helps transport nutrients to cells and removes toxins. It facilitates water retention in the body tissue, and can absorb more than one thousand times its weight in water. There are two molecular weights used in skin are preparations – high molecular weight molecule is too large to penetrate into the dermis, but is highly effective in the epidermis where it helps to draw moisture from the atmosphere and hold it on the surface of the skin. Low molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid is an extremely small molecule which is able to penetrate deep within the dermis where it has been proven to help stimulate collagen syntheses and increase dermal hydration.
