Hyaluronic Acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the human body in skin, cartilage, nerves, bones, and eyes. It is a key component of synovial fluid within the joints. Sodium Hyaluronate is a salt form of the material, created to increase stability and minimize oxidation. In that form, it is purified and has a narrower molecular weight range.
Hyaluronan is another name for the material which is used for both variations. Although Hyaluronan was originally extracted from sources such as human umbilical cord and rooster comb, today it is most often produced from fermentation processes using potatoes, yeast and/or glucose or other natural sources.
Our nutritional/cosmetic grade Hyaluronic Acid powder is obtained from the fermentation of yeast and/or glucose. This product is classified as non-animal derived and non-GMO. This natural HA can be classified in the USA as "vegetarian" or "non-animal derived".
Hyaluronic Acid, or Sodium Hyaluronate, is an amazing material for its ability to absorb as much as one thousand times its weight in water. As such, it is widely used in pharmaceutical, medical, ocular, cosmetic and nutritional applications. It is often used for wound repair, to aid in process of ocular surgery and recovery.
In the cosmetics industry, applications for Hyaluronic Acid include topical and dermal use for moisturizing and also for moisture retention.
Sodium Hyaluronate is used extensively as a dermal filler, often as a substitute for collagen injections.
Then, there is the Medical Device Grade product, used in viscoelastic solutions.
For human and animal joint care, the high viscosity (as much as 5000 x that of water) can act as a lubricant as well as for absorbing shock between joint surfaces.
There are truly a wide variety of uses for this product in many fields.
We are often asked how viscous (thick) various dilutions of HA can be. As a general rule of thumb: a 1% HA in solution has a viscosity similar to room temperature liquid honey; A 2% HA in solution has a viscosity similar to refrigerated liquid honey. As such, buyer beware when someone tries to sell you "high purity" HA in solution (liquid HA). We have seen vendors in many places on the internet claiming to be selling 60% and 100% "pure" Hyaluronic Acid liquid. That simply is not possible. Even a 5% HA solution would be edging towards a totally solid state. Think of it! It absorbs up to 1000 times its weight in water! Any edible liquid that is not oil or glycerin contains water. So, even if it's suspended in Aloe gel, much like a sponge, it would be absorbing all the moisture from that gel and effectively turning it into a moist solid at higher concentrations.
