header hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid, also known as hyaluronan, is a polysaccharide possessing the ability to retain the equivalent of thousands of times its weight in water.This is why it is used for hydrating the epidermis; it helps reconstitute the fibers that support skin tissue.Due to these hydrating qualities, it is commonly used as an ingredient in cosmetic products, including those for facial wrinkles.Hyaluronic acid is the main component in skin, where 50% of the body’s total concentration of this acid is found.

Uses
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is the key molecule involved in hydrating the skin due to its specific ability to retain water.It is thus important to increase the amount of hyaluronic acid in the skin in order to improve its hydration.Skin aging is a complex biological mechanism controlled by two independent processes.This first is natural and affects the skin in the same way as with the rest of the organs, and is influenced by hormonal changes that occur with age.Estrogen and androgen deficiency causes collagen degradation, dryness, loss of elasticity and wrinkles.The second process comes from exposure to external factors such as ultraviolet radiation (photoaging).Both skin-aging processes share similar mechanisms at the molecular level.In mature skin, HA will remain present in the dermis while it disappears completely in the epidermis.The epidermis thus loses the main molecule responsible for retaining water, resulting in decreased skin hydration.HA plays a significant role in repairing tissue when wounds heal since its level increases during rapid tissue proliferation, regeneration and repair.In the adult healing process, HA attains a maximum level and then rapidly decreases.With the fetus, however, HA levels remain high during the healing process, which results in wounds leaving no scar.Based on these facts, it is understood that a high level of HA helps improve wound healing.Coenzyme Q10 is a known antioxidant used in skincare products to combat skin aging produced by both natural aging and photoaging.Vitamin A is necessary for maintaining the functional integrity of epithelial tissue.The main role of Vitamin E in skin is to help prevent the oxidative damage caused by free radicals (photoaging).
