About Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid in the human body
Hyaluron – also called hyaluronic acid or sometimes given in short form as HA – is an endogenous substance. Hyaluronic acid is found in many parts of the human body. It is an essential part of the eye’s sclera, serves as a lubricant in joints and cartilage and is an important component of the connective tissue. Hyaluronic acid forms a gel-like structure in which collagen- and elastin fibers are embedded, it carries nutrients to the cells, stimulates renewal of cells and removes toxins. The largest proportion of hyaluronic acid with about 50% is present in our skin.

What is hyaluronic acid
biochemically considered, Hyaluronic acid is a sugar-like biopolymer, a macromolecular chain of disaccharides (carbohydrates), which in turn consist of two glucose derivatives – or put briefly and clearly: a simply built all-rounder. Hyaluron is characterized in particular by the fact to bind enormous amounts of water – up to six liters per gram of weight. Due to the high water-binding capacity, hyaluronic acid is particularly interesting for cosmetic manufacturers.

Can the effect of hyaluronic acid be intensified / improved
by other ingredients

Hyaluronic acid is an impressive active agent and can be found in our serums as the main active ingredient in maximum dosage *. Hyaluronic products are often advertised with a high dosage of hyaluronic acid. The dosage of a single active ingredient is often not sufficient for optimum performance. For example, in case the transport to the positions where the active agent is actually needed is not ensured, the effect immediately evaporates on the surface. The hyaluronic acid as the basis of our serums is therefore supported by other well-balanced skin and cell active, protective agents.

* A higher dosage is biochemically hardly feasible and from a cosmetic point of view does not make sense.

Why we have to constantly supply new hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is found as an endogenous substance in almost every cell of the body in various concentrations. The body produces it itself. But it can be active only up to three days, because it is also continuously removed from the body again. Subsequently, the body always supplies new hyaluronic. A continuous cycle. Unfortunately, the rate of hyaluronic acid decreases significantly with age. From forty years onwards, the skin stores only about 40% of hyaluronic acid, from sixty the rate of hyaluronic acid in our skin is down up to 10%. With a shortage caused by the skin aging process or by highly stressed skin (UV radiation, environmental influences) hyaluronic acid must be continuously supplied new.

Other fields of application of hyaluronic acid
In cosmetics, hyaluronic acid has been used very successfully in the area of anti-aging and ensures skin beauty and skin health. But not only in cosmetics hyaluronic acid enjoys great popularity. In aesthetic medicine, hyaluronic acid is very much effective and used as an injection for wrinkle treatment, padding or contour irregularities. In dermatology, hyaluronic acid is used in wound treatment, since it accelerates the wound healing process with its anti-inflammatory properties, and can support a scar-free healing.

Purity and origin
The hyaluronic acid used by SYNOUVELLE Cosmeceuticals is obtained biotechnologically and has no animal origin. It is very well tolerated also in high concentration, non-allergenic and safe
