The benefits of hyaluronic acid and the difference between high and low molecular weight

Hyaluronic acid, a fundamental component of the dermis and one of the most precious active ingredients to ensure hydration, elasticity and softness to the skin. As it becomes insufficient with age, its replenishment becomes essential to preserve the natural healthy appearance of the skin. Philip Martin's uses it in many products to bring well-being and brighten the skin.

The composition of Hyaluronic Acid

Classified as a glycosaminoglycan, hyaluronic acid is composed of long sequences of two simple sugars, glucuronic acid and N-acetylglucosamine. When combined, the two substances create a linear and flexible molecule that provides hydration and protects the tissues.

The benefits

Hyaluronic Acid stimulates the formation of collagen and connective tissue, protects the body from viruses and bacteria, provides skin hydration and increases the elasticity of tissues. The use of Hyaluronic Acid ,during skin aging, reactivates the skin, stimulating cell function and restoring firmness and brightness.

The difference between high and low molecular weight

High molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid acts on the surface, providing effective hydration and protection. Low molecular weight, on the other hand, penetrates deeply, stimulating the physiological production of proteins and reducing the depth of wrinkles.

The products with Hyaluronic Acid
