INCI: Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate
What is Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate?
Also known as miniHA, it has a low molecular weight compared to regular hyaluronic acid (HA). This is so that it penetrates the skin, as normal HA can't.
Use & Benefits:
Since it's able to penetrate the skin, it can travel further and hydrate the layers below the surface. Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate can reduce wrinkles and improve skin elasticity. In the epidermis, it is able to stimulate the production of HA the normal high molecular weight that is naturally found in the skin. This increase in HA can help protect against free radicals that damage important protiens; elastin and collagen while improving the softness of the skin.
As it can improve the appearance of the skin, it is used in many anti-aging products such as creams, serums, masks, toners, essence, cleansers.
