INCI: Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate
What is Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate?
Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate is a modified form of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin known for its moisturizing properties. It is obtained through a hydrolysis process that breaks down the larger hyaluronic acid molecules into smaller fragments, resulting in a lower molecular weight. This allows the hydrolyzed sodium hyaluronate to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Properties of Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate
Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate has a very low molecular weight (up to 10-20 kDa), which enables it to penetrate the skin's deeper layers more effectively. It has been found to repair and regenerate skin cells, increase hydration, and target signs of aging from within the skin. Additionally, it has the ability to stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid that naturally occurs in the skin.
