Hyaluronic acid is a natural carbohydrate polymer belonging to the class of non-sulfated glycosaminoglycans, molecules that form organized structure to form extracellular matrix. It is found throughout the body such as in synovial fluids, eyes, lungs and heart valves. However, it's estimated that 50% of the hyaluronic acid found in human body is concentrated in the skin tissues.
Sodium hyaluronate is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid. It is sometimes called hyaluronic acid sodium and hyaluronate sodium. It has a unique hygroscopic (water pulling) character that makes it a good humectant for the skin. It can draw upto 1000 times moisture than its own weight.
The sodium hyaluronate at Askalite is produced by bacterial fermentation of carbohydrate derived from botanicals. We combine different molecular sizes so it can penetrate multiple layers of the skin and create the intended suppleness.
