Hyaluronic acid - sodium hyaluronate & hydrolized hyaluronic acid
Categories : Ingredients
Naturally involved in maintaining the hydration and in the structure of the skin, hyaluronic acid has become today one of the most powerful cosmetic active ingredients in anti-aging.
What is Hyaluronic Acid ?
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule naturally present in the human body. In the skin, its role is to fill the gaps between the different types of cells. It is therefore essential for maintaining the structure and appearance of the skin. Its flexible and water-rich structure gives it a great retention capacity which makes it so interesting.
1 gram of pure hyaluronic acid can retain up to 6L of water.
Its quantity is constantly renewed but with age, it decreases gradually ... which explains the appearance of wrinkles and loss of elasticity. Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in hydration and cell renewal.
In the 1930s this ingredient was discovered in bovine eye and for a very long time it was extracted from rooster ridges. Fortunately, today it is synthesized and obtained from growing plants like wheat and corn.
The different types of hyaluronic acid
There are different forms of hyaluronic acid classified according to their weight and their actions.
High molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which is a large molecule, it does not penetrate the epidermis and acts on the surface. It plays a role in hydration, cell proliferation and wound healing.
Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, thanks to its small size, penetrates the layers of the epidermis in depth. It participates in the synthesis of collagen, calms inflammation, stimulates blood vascularization... and promotes better hydration.
Prevent skin aging
The signs of skin aging such as the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation marks, loss of elasticity or even a dull complexion are naturally linked to the passage of time and possibly accentuated by external factors. Elements linked to our environment (exposure to the sun, blue light, atmospheric pollution) or to our behavior (tobacco, alcohol, excess food) contribute to:
- A decrease in the thickness of our skin
- The alteration of the metabolism of constituent cells
- A decrease in the thickness of our skin
With age, these phenomena lead to a drop in the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen, the skin then becomes drier, loses firmness and elasticity.
Hyaluronic acid, which is found in the dermis and in small quantities in the epidermis, is therefore essential for maintaining the structure of the different layers of the skin. For visibly younger skin, anti-aging treatments with hyaluronic acid protect your skin and fight against the signs of aging.
The hydrating and anti-aging action of hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is involved in different levels of skin aging and participates in the proper functioning of the skin's metabolism. It compensates for certain decreases in cellular activities such as the production of collagen or elastin. The high molecular weight hyaluronic acid acts as a protective barrier and will reduce wrinkles, and smooth signs of dehydration.
In creams and serums, low molecular weight hyaluronic acid replenishes and strengthens the skin, which allows it to improve its grain and texture. By retaining water like a sponge, the molecules slip into the dermis and relaunch the production of hyaluronic acid already present. The skin is more supple, soft and plumped.
