Low molecular hyaluronic acid is one of the basic components of CLINICCARE skincare. Hyaluronic acid plays a vital role in metabolic processes such as cell interaction and synthesis. It helps protect cell immunity and helps preventing infections. One of its most important properties is its ability to retain moisture – up to 1000 times the weight of the acid itself. Natural repair of skin cells is directly dependent on levels of hyaluronic acid, which, unfortunately, decline as you age. This leaves skin more susceptible to toxins and all processes that require hyaluronic acid deteriorate. That's why it’s so important for anti-ageing formulas to include hyaluronic acid.
Conventional hyaluronic acid molecules are 3000 nanometers in diameter whereas intercellular space is only around 100 nanometers. This makes it impossible for conventional hyaluronic acid molecules to penetrate to deeper levels of the skin. Until now it has only been possible with direct injection of hyaluronic acid. However, Japanese scientists have managed to develop low molecular hyaluronic acid with molecules only 5 nanometers wide with high ionization levels as well, which means it can reach deep into the skin without the need for injection.
