Hyaluronic acid

HyaluronsäureHyaluronic acid is produced by the body itself. It is part of the extracellular matrix (ECM) (connective tissue) and serves, for example, for joint lubrication, but also for water storage. Hyaluronic acid can bind to water up to 20 times its weight. Hyaluronic acid is particularly well tolerated precisely because it is a natural component of the body. The hyaluronic acid naturally present in the body has a molecular weight of 4,000 to 8,000,000 daltons. This is important for understanding the different modes of action of high and low molecular hyaluronic acid. With increasing age the percentage of hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases. This is caused by the increasing activity of the hyaluronidase enzyme, whereby the body’s own hyaluronic acid is increasingly broken down. Result: Your skin becomes drier. Cosmetic products with hyaluronic acid (INCI: sodium hyaluronate) can help here. However, it depends on the composition of the formula, because hyaluronic acid has a different effect depending on the molecular mass. There are several studies on the effect of hyaluronic acid, e.g. this one from 2011. Therefore, a distinction is made between high-molecular and low-molecular hyaluronic acid in cosmetic applications (Attention: both have the same INCI! Pay attention to the information of the manufacturer, which kind(s) of hyaluronic acid he uses in his products)  

High molecular hyaluronic acid

  • molecular weight > 1,500,000 Dalton
  • does not penetrate into the skin due to its size, but has a skin moisturizing effect on the surface
  • has anti-inflammatory properties
 

Low molecular hyaluronic acid

  • molecular weight < 50,000 Dalton
  • penetrates the connective tissue of the skin due to its small size, develops its deep action and supports reconstruction
  • has a long-term effect
  To achieve an optimal effect of hyaluronic acid, the use of high-molecular and low-molecular hyaluronic acid makes sense – it depends on the combination.   That our vegan naturmädchen face cream as well as our Intensive Serum and our Sun Screen with SPF 20 naturally contain both high-molecular and low-molecular hyaluronic acids, we need not mention here probably any more. Incidentally, the proportion of hyaluronic acid in our poducts is many times higher than that stated in the study linked above. Oh yes, and of course our hyaluronic acid is produced in a natural way without genetic engineering and without animal components.
