The function of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is always about hydration and separation. Hydration because it holds on to water and separation because it acts as a structural component throughout the body. Nearly 50% of your body’s HA is in your skin, there it creates volume, resulting in a healthy and vital appearance. As you age, however, you lose this vital youth-enhancing substance.
You Can Have Beautiful Skin! The ECM fills up the space between the skin cells. This makes the skin soft, smooth and elastic. As your amount of HA decreases, the ECM becomes dehydrated, producing dry, rough, wrinkled skin. It’s not unlike the drying fruit. A plum starts out plump and moist. Remove the water and you get a prune.
Truly radiant skin comes from with-in. Your skin’s ability physically glow depends upon its ability to retain and hold moisture within the cells of its dermis (inner layer). In fact, your skin’s dermis is made up of about 70% of water. The amount of water that you have depends largely on your age and health. According to J.M.Seigneuret, Ph.D., a proper water balance is vital to your skin’s condition. Hyper-hydration causes the skin to crumple up and swell (that "pruney" look after submerged in water for a long time) and dehydration promotes the loss of elasticity and wrinkling (the "crocodile" look.)
Normally, nothing is more abundant in the human skin cell than HA and water. In fact, according to Aimo Niskanen, D.V.M, PhD., HA can retain up to 1,000 times its own weight in moisture! Dr. Clive Solomons, Ph.D., F.A.I.C., has also noted that HA acts as a gel to help keep your tissues hydrated. This is why HA has become a very popular ingredient in high-quality cosmetics: but topical creams can only bind moisture to the outer surface of your skin! When taken internally, HA reaches the deep inner layers of the epidermis where topical applications cannot reach.
