Anti-aging effect with hyaluronic acid

A powerful anti-wrinkle agent

For centuries, humans have been searching for that mythical fountain of youth whose waters keep you forever young. True, hyaluronic acid does not quite live up to this myth, but comes pretty close as its scientifically proved anti-wrinkle effect demonstrates. The secret of the reliable anti-wrinkle effect does not lie in this agent alone but also depends on its molecular structure and the quality of the auxiliary agents used.     

 

Hyaluronic acid – the much sought-after endogenous substance

Hyaluronic acid is an endogenous polysaccharide which can store water up to 6,000 times of its own weight and prevents wrinkles in a perfectly natural way.  The downside: The molecules of the agent degrade and the body has to synthesise it again – a process which unfortunately slows down from an average age of 25 years on. Besides its medical use, hyaluronic acid plays an important part in anti-wrinkle or anti-aging cosmetics. Regularly applied as a cream and with a sophisticated combination of premium-quality ingredients, it can reduce wrinkles – quickly and effectively.  

 

Anti-wrinkle agent – the mixture makes all the difference

Scientific studies have demonstrated the general anti-wrinkle effectiveness of hyaluronic acid, but whether cosmetic products have this positive effect depends on the quality of the auxiliary agents and the molecular structure of the hyaluronic acid used in them. While hyaluronic acid of a high molecular weight has a rather quick and topical effect, the low-molecular or oligomer variety is stored in the body’s connective tissue and provides a lasting anti-wrinkle effect. As the designation INCI: sodium hyaluronate does not distinguish between the molecular weights, an experienced and consulting supplier of ingredients such as GfN can be decisive for the quality of a product.  

 

Our tip: Crosslinked hyaluronic acid (INCI: sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer-3) offers better stability than pure hyaluronic acid and an immediate anti-wrinkle effect of up to 60% after just 30 minutes. This link takes you directly to the product.
