Hyaluronic Acid 1%
(Sodium Hyaluronate) is a natural product of the bio-fermentation of Yeast with Glucose and Inorganic Salts. Recognized as the most effective moisturizer ever discovered. A 1% aqueous solution is incredibly effective, even at 0.1-1%, where the bio-fermentation is capable of holding up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture.
However During manufacture, special attention is paid to maintaining purity and its high relative molecular mass, being made up of long chain, unbranched, disaccharide units, consisting of glucuronic acid and n-acetylglucosamine. The high viscosity of Hyaluronic Acid derives from the very pronounced hydrophilic characteristics of Hyaluronic acid. The Ingredients To Die For Hyaluronic Acid is preserved naturally with Gluconolactone and Sodium Benzoate, unlike most on the market that are aggressively preserved with petro's, formaldehyde donors, and parabens.
Hyaluronic Acid is a viscous gel solution that spreads across the skin smoothly and without drag. In connective tissues Hyaluronic Acid fills the space between, collagen, elastin bundles, the cells and also is responsible for the visco-elastic characteristics of the tissues, especially in the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid has recently been used to create Hylaform Gel, an FDA Approved injectable material that aestheticians, and plastic surgeons, have predicted will replace collagen injections because. The risk of reaction is lower (most collagen being of bovine origin), the Hylaform Gel is more effective, and the results are longer lasting than those of collagen injections.
Due to its high, relative, molecular mass Hyaluronic acid is not absorbed. It once applied to the skin, instead forming a thin, light permeable, invisible, visco-elastic surface film, like that of the skin, that fixes the moisture on the surface of the skin. That helps to preserve the principal characteristics of young healthy skin; such as smoothness, elasticity, and tone, to support the skins natural protective mechanism.
Hyaluronic Acid 1% is such an excellent water reservoir, and ideal lubricant, that when incorporated into cosmetics, it leads to a perceptible and visible improvement in skin condition ... the corner stone of every anti-aging product and all mature / dry skin treatments.

NOTE:: Hyaluronic Acid 1% can form complexes with cationic compounds, and proteins, and give rise to precipitation. Special consideration should be given when incorporating into such systems.
Hyaluronic acid is a linear polysaccharide of the repeating dissacharide unit consisting of a glucuronic acid and also N-acetyl-D-glucosamine moiety. That are connected by alternating β 1–3 and β 1–4 glycosidic bonds. It is a glycosaminoglycan, which is found in the extracellular matrix of connective and epithelial tissues. Hyaluronic acid is one of the constituents of the ground substance that embeds the fibrous components and also cells of the dermis of skin, although it is also found in the epidermis.
However In fact, while hyaluronic acid is found throughout the body, the majority of it is found in skin where it is predominantly synthesized by fibroblast cells. It should be pointed out that hyaluronic acid is the most abundant glycosaminoglycan found in the dermis. In general, glycosaminoglycans form a fluid matrix by binding with with large quantities of water allowing the dermis to remain hydrated and also sustain physically-induced external pressures resulting in the transformation from a solid to liquid phase.
In fact, hyaluronic acid can bind up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Typically, it has a a very high molecular mass on the order of millions of daltons.
