INCI: Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan (a type of polysaccharide) which is present in all living organisms. It belongs to the most numerous group of compounds which have an identical chemical structure in both bacteria and human beings. Its name comes from the Greek word hyalos, meaning glass. Its colourless, translucent, and glassy as the name suggests.
Hyaluronic acid present in the skin is one of its key components. The ability to bind water in the epidermis inhibits creation of wrinkles and makes skin elastic. What is more, it maintains water in the organism and the level of tissue fluid contained in the extracellular matrix. Hyaluronic acid protects skin against drying and enhances its defensive
Young skin is abundant in hyaluronic acid. That is why it looks fresh and has no wrinkles. Over time the amount of fluid decreases and water bindings become weaker.
Gels on the base of the acid are used for filling tissue defects, wrinkles, and breast and lips augmentation.
It is especially recommended for dry, non-elastic, mature, and wrinkle-prone skin. It does not produce allergies or irritations. Your skin becomes firm and incredibly smooth.
It has soothing properties and naturally protects skin, creating a kind of protective film on its surface.
Mini HA hyaluronic acid — (very small size of molecules: below 10 kDa; it is the result of synthetical degradation with hyaluronidase) — powder —it is a form of hyaluronic acid which has very small molecules and, therefore, easily penetrates horny layer. It does not contain preservatives. This product helps to rebuild damaged cells. Besides, it has strong hygroscopic properties (an ability to bind water in deep skin layers). While used on your face, neckline and body, it makes them incredibly elastic and firm.
Soluble in water. It does not create gel, so it may be mixed with macromolecular acid in accordance with the below formula:
1st way 0.5 g of mini HA acid (powder) + 0.5 g of macromolecular hyaluronic acid (powder) + 1 g of preservative + 98 g of water (distilled or demineralized) To prepare 1.5% solution
1st way 0.5 g of Mini HA acid (powder) + 99.5 g of 1% macromolecular hyaluronic acid (gel) (mix them and wait until the powder dissolves in the gel)
2nd way 0.5 g of mini HA acid (powder) + 1 g of macromolecular hyaluronic acid (powder) + 1 g of preservative + 97.5 g of water (distilled)
|Use||In cosmetics: lotions, tonics, creams, gels, face care; cosmetic aesthetic: filling wrinkles, lip enlargement and breast.|
|Recommended concentration||In cosmetics to 1%.|
