Hyaluronic Acid <8,000 Daltons Molecular Weight
CAS No. 9067-32-7

Our Hyaluronic Acid is made by the bacterial fermentation of plant matter (generally using glucose derived from potatoe and beans).  It is considered vegan.

Hyaluronic Acid <8,000 Daltons is a lower molecular weight hyaluronic acid. High molecular weight hyaluronic acid is enzimatically cut up to produce a very low molecular weight hyaluronic acid of less than 80,000 Daltons. This very low molecular weight reduces its viscosity in water, but improves its ability to penetrate the upper layers of the skin.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a polysaccharide and a compound that occurs naturally in every tissue of the body, with the highest concentrations occurring in tissues such as skin, cartilage and eyes. Providing protection to cell structures, HA is the natural gel between skin cells that serves as a water reservoir for the cells. As we age, skin loses hyaluronic acid and the ability to hold sufficient water in this reservoir. Feeding new hyaluronic acid to skin may help hydrate skin's intercellular reservoir, raising skin's moisture level, and smoothing down age lines.

Topically, Hyaluronic Acid has water storing properties, making it an ideal swelling agent and lubricant, enabling its incorporation into cosmetics leading to a perceptible and visible improvement of skin condition. In use, it forms a thin transparent visco-elastic surface film that helps to preserve the characteristics of youthful and healthy skin: suppleness, elasticity and tone.

1 gram of Hyaluronic Acid Powder will make 100 grams (3.53 ounces) of a 1% solution.  See the Formulary for the simple formula to make this solution.

Unlike regular Hyaluronic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid SLMW will not form a viscous gel in water. If you want a viscous gel, you need to use our regular Hyaluronic Acid 1 - 1.5 Million Daltons, not this one!

Formulation Guidelines

  • Hyaluronic Acid <8,000 has a tendency to clump when added to water, making it difficult to hydrate evenly. It can be pre-mixed with glycerin prior to adding water -- this will prevent agglomeration and create a smooth mixture.
  • You can also simply add it to your distilled water,  cover it and give it some time to hydrate, then mix well.  Depending on the amount used, this make take 15 minutes to an hour or more.
  • Unlike regular Hyaluronic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid <8,000 will not form a viscous gel. If you want a viscous gel, consider combining both types in your formulation.
