Nano Size Hyaluronic Acid

Our Hyaluronic Acid ULMW (Ultra Low Molecular Weight) has been upgraded to an ultrapure hyaluronic acid (as tested by HPLC). Degraded by hyalurondase, in a patented process, high molecular weight hyaluronic acid is enzimatically snipped to produce our exclusive Ultra Low Molecular Weight (ULMW) Hyaluronic Acid of less than 6,000 Daltons. This very, very low molecular weight reduces its viscosity in water, but improves its ability to penetrate the upper layers of the epidermis. 

Most hyaluronic acid is snipped chemically to produce the lower molecular weights that are available today.  These are tested in accordance with pH Eur standards using the carbazole method, a method that works well for higher molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, but lacks the sensitivity to reveal the true purity of ultra low molecular weights of hyaluronic acid.  Through the use of HPLC, the greater purity of enzymatically produced ultra low molecular weight hyaluronic acid versus that which is chemically snipped becomes evident. 

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a polysaccharide and a compound that occurs naturally in every tissue of the body, with the highest concentrations occurring in tissues such as skin, cartilage and eyes. Providing protection to cell structures, HA is the natural gel between skin cells that serves as a water reservoir for the cells. As we age, skin loses hyaluronic acid and the ability to hold sufficient water in this reservoir. Feeding new hyaluronic acid to skin may help hydrate skin's inter-cellular reservoir, raising skin's moisture level, and smoothing down age lines.

Topically, Hyaluronic Acid has water storing properties, making it an ideal swelling agent and lubricant, enabling its incorporation into cosmetics leading to a perceptible and visible improvement of skin condition. In use, it forms a thin transparent visco-elastic surface film that helps to preserve the characteristics of youthful and healthy skin: suppleness, elasticity and tone
