Super Low Weight Hyaluronic Acid (SLMW) Powder
Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of your body’s connective tissue that maintains skin’s strength and elasticity.
Hyaluronic Acid Benefits
Hyaluronic acid can retain over a 1000 times its weight in water, so it’s super-hydrating and helps to give you a bright appearance by keeping cells plumped and strong.
Who should use it?
As we age, the natural hyaluronic acid levels in our skin decrease. Mostly found in anti-ageing creams for mature skin, hyaluronic acid is quickly becoming a preventative treatment and skin staple for younger people looking to stave off the effects of ageing for as long as possible. Continuous use of hyaluronic acid ensures you retain moisture and elasticity in your skin.
Super Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid is so called because the size of the HA molecules is much smaller than standard molecular weight. Skin penetration is optimised thus providing improved hydration.
How to Use: HA powder should not be added directly to your formulation. It must first be pre-dissolved in water at the rate of 1g to 100g (or ml) of water. HA powder is difficult to work with and tends to clump together when added to water. It can be mixed with a little glycerine (1g powder to 10g glycerine) to form a paste which can then be added to your water under the action of a high-speed mixer. Our current batch is a less fine powder which makes it easier to incorporate into water.
If you plan to make up a stock solution of HA do note that it is only viable for a few days, even if refrigerated, before spoiling. Do use a suitable preservative to protect the serum from spoilage.
If you need advice on the best way to preserve a stock HA solution then do contact us and we’d be happy to advise.
Usage Rate of the 1% solution. Up to 5% of your formulation. Add at cool down phase ( below 40C)
