Benefits of Sodium Hyaluronate/Hyaluronic acid
1. Retain moisture
Sodium Hyaluronate(Hyaluronic acid) is actually a natural structural component of skin. Hyaluronic acid distributes widely in human body, such as in connective, epithelial, and neural tissues.
Hyaluronic acid can retain moisture; it's considered to have a greater capacity to hold moisture than any other natural or synthetic polymer. In fact, one gram of hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to six liters of water.
This is important with regard to aging because one of the hallmarks of youthful skin is its moisture content. As we age, our skin loses moisture, resulting in a loss of firmness and pliability.
2. Repaire skin
Hyaluronic acid can strengthen skin's barrier. Like sun damage and acne to sensitive skin and rosacea, can lead to a damaged barrier, and hyaluronic acid can help to repaire skin's barrier.
Hyaluronic acid also provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage, and reduces inflammation. That's what we call a multitasking anti-aging ingredient!
3. Provide lubrication
Sodium Hyaluronate(Hyaluronic acid) provides lubrication to the connective tissues of our joints and skin and is an important part of our skin's overall health.
Sodium Hyaluronate(Hyaluronic acid) is present in many areas of your body including your eyes, internal fluids, and connective tissue.
4. Antioxidant defense
Sodium Hyaluronate(Hyaluronic acid) gives your skin antioxidant defense to fight UV damage. This is important since free radicals can break down collagen and elastin to age our skin and make wrinkles and sagging more apparent.
5. Reduces inflammation
The high concentration, high molecular weight Sodium Hyaluronate can also prevent the migration and phagocytosis of granulocyte, resulting in an anti-inflammatory effect. Hyaluronan gel applied on the surface of a wound can also excel the healing process.
6. Biocompatibility and degradeable
Sodium Hyaluronate(Hyaluronic acid) has good biocompatibility and degradeable which leads its widely using in medical applications. Like preventing post-surgical adhesions, drug carrier, Osteoarthritis, Wound-healing, Tympanic membrane repair, Soft tissue repair, Cosmetic surgery etc.
