Hyaluronic Acid

$7.50

Size

SKU 139

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. A truly great active ingredient!

When using Hyaluronic Acid in something that is not preserved (ex: creating a serum with distilled water, as opposed to adding it to a cream already containing a preservative), make sure to add a preservative to the formulation. If you don't, microorganisms will break down the Hyaluronic Acid within a few days.

It is an active ingredient in the Dermadoctor™ line and many others.

Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid is NOT hyaluronic acid. The properties of hyaluronic acid depend on its molecular weight. In fact, if you make a solution of hyaluronic acid without the addition of preservative, it will be initially very viscous but, after a few days, it will be a liquid instead of a gel. Why? Because microorganisms degrade hyaluronic acid into smaller pieces (low molecular weight) and those fragments do not form a gel and will not prevent water loss from the skin. Moreover, fragments of hyaluronic acid have been shown to promote inflammation.

Hyaluronic acid (a.k.a. hyaluronan, sodium hyaluronate) is a polysaccharide, made by animals and some bacteria (we use the cruelty free version produced by bacterial fermentation), 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.

Keep Hyaluronic Acid in its closed container in a cool, dry place until ready to use. Be careful when using it in your formulations, because it is tricky to get the quantities correct and using too much may spoil a cream.

Each tube is enough for 4 fl oz of cream or lotion at approximately 1% concentration (1 g in 120 mL cream). Use in your favorite cream, or add to our Canvas Base Cream or our Sea Kelp Coral to increase moisturization.

A hyaluronic acid gel can be created by adding the powder to distilled water (1 gram per 2 or 3 fluid ounces of distilled water). This mix is unstable and will only last two or three days, even with refrigeration. To stabilize the solution, add Germaben II at 1%. Refrigerate the resulting mix, and use within two or three months.

Hyaluronic Acid can also be added to any cream, gel, or lotion to thicken a mixture. Add some powder to a small amount of water, let it absorb and form a gel, then mix into the desired product.

    This goes in ALL of my face creams.....!! Remember, it will thicken your creams and too much may ruin it altogether. Too much of a Good thing isn't always Good. But, the prices on this product (All Of The Products) is Amazing....!! The DMAE makes base watery and this makes bases thick. The company send a "how to" sheet with your orders. Very Helpful.
