Sodium hyaluronate is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the fluid that bathes joints, in the vitreous humor of the eye and in the skin. It’s abundant in the dermis of young skin. Hyaluronic acid gives skin volume by holding onto water and as levels decline as we age, skin loses its youthful fullness.
This is an advantage since sodium hyaluronate is a powerful humectant that attracts and holds on to water, making it the ultimate, must have skin moisturizer. When Sodium Hylauronate is applied topically to the skin it can reach deep down into the dermis to combine with, maintain and attract water. It also promotes skin/blood microcirculation and nutrient absorption, and helps maintain normal metabolism. Thanks to its super-sized hydrating properties, sodium hyaluronate will result in smoother, softer skin with decreased wrinkles and an all-around fuller appearance.
