Hyaluronic acid (sodium hyaluronate) is used as a filler in plastic surgery and increasingly also in skincare products. This remarkable substance is found naturally in the human body –in the skin, body fluids, synovial fluid, vitreous body and blood vessels. Originally obtained from rooster combs, but due to the allergenic effect this type had on some people, today a safer form is obtained through biotechnology. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant. One molecule of it can bind up to 250 molecules of water, which makes it excellent at boosting elasticity and regeneration in human skin. Because the amount of hyaluronic acid in skin decreases with age, it can be very beneficial at slowing aging when applied externally. Hyaluronic acid is a valuable skincare ingredient, recommended especially for people with dry and mature skin.
The VIANEK Moisturizing Range features hyaluronic acid with a very low molecular weight, which best penetrates deep into the skin to deliver the maximum effect.
