Sodium hyaluronate is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in great abundance in young skin, synovial fluid and other tissues in humans and animals.
Hyaluronic acid is a special mucopolysaccharide occurring naturally throughout the human body. It is the most effective humectant available and so is able to bind water within the intercellular structure of the skin. Its unmatched hydrating properties result finally in increased smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles.
The consistency and tissue-friendliness of hyaluronic acid allows it to be used in skin-care products as an excellent moisturizer. It is one of the most hydrophilic molecules in nature and can be described as “Natures moisturizer”.
