Hyaluronic Acid (a.k.a. hyaluronan, sodium hyaluronate) is a polysaccharide, made by animals and some bacteria, with long chains made of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine alternating with glucuronic acid. In our skin, it stabilizes the intercellular (in-between cells) space in the dermis, and contributes significantly to cell proliferation, migration, and skin repair, activities essential to skin health. Because of its tremendous capacity to hold water, adding this active to your creams, lotions, gels, or serums will help keep skin moist. Also, hyaluronidase in the skin will break this active down and the sugars released will be used to make new hyaluronic acid in our dermis.*
