Tabloid press and mass media assert hyaluronic acid to be a substance of eternal youth and beauty. It is fair to say that such an estimation has a real background. Hyaluronic acid is as a unique structural component of a human body, which is able to lock in moisture. It exists in epidermis in large quantities and it is in charge of keeping the skin firm, toned and young, preventing fine lines. There almost no precautions against using hyaluronic acid as a component of cosmetic products or beauty procedures, as it is a natural substance of human body. The effectiveness of cosmetics based on hyaluronic acid was proved both by clinical trials and a long-term use. Its positive action depends on the beauty procedure, amount of hyaluronic acid in the cosmetic product and on its molecule size.
What alternatives of hyaluronic acid exist
There are no any other natural products with the same wide range of effective actions as hyaluronic acid, except its alternative – a hyaluronic acid derivative with a smaller molecular volume. This is a salt of hyaluronic acid, which is developed with the help of bio-engineering by separation of non-functional components. This substance is called sodium hyaluronate, and being used as an ingredient of cosmetic products, it has much larger spectrum of activity than hyaluronic acid. It is caused by the smaller size of its molecules, which can penetrate into the deep skin layers. In such case, it is better to use high-molecular hyaluronic acid in injection beauty procedures.
