What is Hyaluronic Acid


Hyaluronic acid naturally distributed throughout the human body where, among other noteworthy properties, it holds water in the intercellular matrix of dermal connective tissue and contributes to the elasticity of the skin. This state-of-the-art property can hold many more times its own weight.

As we age, however, the skin’s hyaluronic acid content diminishes, resulting in a loss of viscoelasticity in the skin that appears visibly as wringles. Logic presents itself then that a crème or lotion that delivers hyaluronic acid to the surface of the skin would help moisturize and restore elasticity and thereby minimize the appearance of wrinkles.

For more than 50 years, health care applications of hyaluronic acid have been in development. In 1980, this remarkable product came to the forefront of the medical and personal care fields. In ophthalmology the use of specific hyaluronic acid preparation revolutionized the performance and the success rate of cataract surgery. In the personal care field, the 1982 introduction of “Night Repare” sparked an explosion of formulas containing hyaluronic acid.
