40% Hyaluronic Acid Solution
A linear polymer of N-acetyl glucosamine and glucuronic acid in alternating sequence and its carboxyl groups are largely ionized at the pH prevailing on the skin surface to promote smooth, soft skin. Hyaluronic Acid is found in almost every cell in the body and it is essential for moisture retention.
Hyaluronic Acid holds 1,000 times its weight in water beneficial as a powerful and extremely effective humectant. This is nature’s “moisture magnet”. It is one of the most hydrophilic molecules that significantly defend against trans-epidermal water loss, dehydration and moisture depletion.
Panthenol (Vitamin B5)
B5 Vitamin that works in tandem with Hyaluronic Acid to attract moisture to the skin, assists in natural healing and conditioning. With long-term use, panthenol has an anti-inflammatory effect in the skin to relieve systemic itching while also soothing dry, irritated skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is available in three different weights:
• Low- assists with spread-ability
• Medium- enhances penetration
• High- barrier protector (occlusive)
Pure HA vs. Hyaluronic Acid Solution
Pure Hyaluronic Acid comes in powder form. Skin does not absorb powder so to encourage product penetration we must use a solution that will make the pure powder of hyaluronic acid useful to the skin
Does the solution dilute Hyaluronic Acid efficacy?
No. It will actually help make the pure Hyaluronic Acid powder viable in the skin allowing it to be absorbed. The higher the percentage= greater results.
How much pure Hyaluronic Acid is generally used?
A maximum industry wide is .05% Pure HA powder and this would convert to a 50% Hyaluronic Acid Solution. Therefore: .05% of the Solution is pure hyaluronic acid powder
How much pure Hyaluronic Acid does DermaQuest use?
