Hyaluronic acid is also known by specialists as hyaluronate or hyaluronan. It was first identified in 1934 by two researchers from Columbia University (New York), Karl Meyer and John W. Palmer. They apparently isolated hyaluronic acid from an area of ​​the eyes of cattle and measured many of its properties. Twenty years later, Meyer and Bernard Weissman discovered the same structure in umbilical cords after birth.


From a chemical point of view, hyaluronic acid is a molecule composed mostly of sugars (polysaccharide), which is normally found in the connective tissue of the body and in the skin. Basically, hyaluronic acid keeps the tissues hydrated and protects them from stretch marks/wrinkles. A single gram of hyaluronic acid can hold approximately six liters of water. In other words, the skin contains 50% hyaluronic acid because it is the largest organ of the human body and this is also where we find most of the water molecules.


At the same time, the highest concentrations are found in the joints and at eye level. Also, the skin of babies contains a large amount of hyaluronic acid, as well as the placenta and the umbilical cord. Dermatologists have also discovered that as we age, from about 26 years old, the natural production of hyaluronic acid in the tissues decreases by up to 60%.

 




Hyaluronic acid brings numerous benefits to the skin and can be administered in the form of injections, ampoules, pills or as an integral part of cosmetic products. One of its main properties is the ability to keep water on the surface of the skin, which implicitly implies its hydration. Also, hyaluronic acid, thanks to its ability to attract water molecules, fills wrinkles and scars left by acne, but the condition is that it must be used constantly because it is very easily absorbed by the body. The application of hyaluronic acid creams leads over time to the smoothing of fine lines and the correction of expression wrinkles.


Our recommendation is hyaluronic acid supplements which, thanks to the optimal concentration and innovative ingredients, help not only to restore the skin's water reserves, but also to protect the collagen and elastin fibers, which give firmness and suppleness to the skin. Hyaluronic acid injections are used to enlarge the lips and contour the face. The interest in the use of hyaluronic acid as an ingredient in more and more skin care products appeared with the discovery that the volume of hyaluronic acid in the epidermis decreases with age and after the period of 26-30 years, both in women and in men, the percentage decreases with up to 60%.


Why does our skin need hyaluronic acid? Because it acts like a sponge that absorbs water and keeps it in all the epithelial tissues and beyond. In the following lines, we will exemplify the impact that hyaluronic acid has on different skin types. As a form of administration, there are several variants in medicine and cosmetics by which hyaluronic acid can be absorbed totally or locally depending on the needs. Thus, there are injections with hyaluronic acid, pills with hyaluronic acid in different dosages as food supplements, there is hyaluronic acid in capsules, hyaluronic acid in ampoules, hyaluronic acid in cream or hyaluronic acid especially for wrinkles on the specialty market.
