Hyaluronic Acid ULMW  <6,000 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 potatoes and beans). It is considered vegan.

Our Hyaluronic Acid ULMW (Ultra Low Molecular Weight) has been upgraded to an ultrapure hyaluronic acid (as tested by HPLC). Degraded by hyalurondase, in a patented process, high molecular weight hyaluronic acid is enzimatically snipped to produce our exclusive Ultra Low Molecular Weight (ULMW) Hyaluronic Acid of less than 6,000 Daltons. This very, very low molecular weight reduces its viscosity in water, but improves its ability to penetrate the upper layers of the epidermis.

Most hyaluronic acid is snipped chemically to produce the lower molecular weights that are available today.  These are tested in accordance with pH Eur standards using the carbazole method, a method that works well for higher molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, but lacks the sensitivity to reveal the true purity of ultra low molecular weights of hyaluronic acid.  Through the use of HPLC, the greater purity of enzymatically produced ultra low molecular weight hyaluronic acid versus that which is chemically snipped becomes evident.

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 inter-cellular 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 ULMW will not form a viscous gel in water. If you want a viscous gel, you need to use our regular Hyaluronic Acid HMW 1.0 - 1.5 Million Daltons, not this one!
 

Formulation Guidelines

  • Hyaluronic Acid ULMW has a tendency to clump when added to water. It can be pre-mixed with glycerin prior to adding to 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 Hyaluronic Acid HMW or Hyaluronic Acid LMW, Hyaluronic Acid ULMW will not form a viscous gel. If you want a viscous gel, consider combining both types in your formulation.

I can't believe I didn't find you guys earlier. I have been making skin care for almost 20 years. It has almost been a challenge as a small manufacturer to buy small quantities of high quality skin care ingredients, and yet here you were just across Puget Sound.
