What is the hyaluronic acid?
The hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin fibers form the basic structures of the skin. Unfortunately, the amount of the hyaluronic acid decreases with age (approximately, after 40 years of age, there is only half of it) and the undesired effect is, simply put, the aging of the skin. Its properties are based on connecting the fibers of collagen and elastin and on its extraordinary ability to bind the water molecules. Its effect against aging is based also on mobilizing the skin’s production of its own hyaluronic acid, slowing down the decomposition of collagen fibers and in antioxidant activity. This compound has alleviating, regenerative effect and stimulates the formation of new skin cells. The result is the necessary hydration, elasticity and strength of the skin and its smooth, youthful appearance.
The effects of the hyaluronic acid on the skin
- Intensive hydration
- It makes the skin firm and smooth
- It has anti-wrinkle effect (it swells and fills up wrinkles and cracks from the inside)
- It forms suitable environment for reactions occurring in the skin, including the synthesis of collagen and elastin
- It has antioxidant effects and fights free-radicals
- It regulates cell division and rejuvenation in the skin
- It has intensive anti-inflammatory and healing effects, it is used to treat damaged skin (for example skin damaged by burns)
- It enables the penetration and activity of other cosmetic active substances into the deeper layers of the skin
- It improves hair and skin quality
CREMCANN HYALURON contains 3 types of hyaluronic acid: one low molecular weight HA and two high molecular weigh HA. This hyaluronic acid is produced by bacterial fermentation. This is a new technology for obtaining hyaluronic acid using Streptococcus zooepidemicus, therefore it is produced in a non-animal form. These acids differ from each other by their molecular weight and can be divided into:
- High molecular weight HA has no chance to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin, but there is a task for it on the skin’s surface. It adsorbs moisture from the surrounding environment and forms a barrier that prevents the transdermal loss of water and skin drying. Thanks to that, the skin maintains smooth and elastic surface. It has the ability to intensively hydrate the skin and it immediately smooths the skin.
- Low molecular weight HA binds moisture, swells up like a sponge, seals up intercellular spaces and smooths the wrinkles of the skin. It has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin, improves its elasticity and tension and forms moisturizing reserves and revitalizes intercellular retention of water in the skin. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid acts in the deeper layers of the skin. That is something that the high molecular weight HA is not able to do.
