This is our highest molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid, coming in at 1.0 - 1.5 Million Daltons.
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 intercellular 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.
1 gram of Hyaluronic Acid Powder will make 100 grams (3.53 ounces) of a 1% solution. See the Formulary for the simple formula to make this solution.
- Hyaluronic Acid has a tendency to clump when added to water. It can be pre-mixed with glycerin prior to adding to water -- this will prevent agglomeration and create a smooth mixture.
- You can also simply add it to your distilled water, cover it and give it some time to hydrate, then mix well. Depending on the amount used, this make take 1 to 4 hours to completely hydrate.
- When making a larger volume, you can also add it to water and use a stick (immersion) blender to blend it until thick
