Hyaluronic Acid is high mucosity and large
molecular amylose firstly separated from vitreous body of cow
eyes by Mayer and Palmer. It is macromolecule polymer that constructed
by GlcA and Glc-NAC. It is no smell, dissolvable in the water
but indissoluble in the organic solvent. Hyaluronic Acid widely
exists in tissues of human beings and animals.
Hyaluronic Acid plays important roles in the organism, such as
lubricating arthrosis, adjusting diffusion and movement of protein,
water and electrolyte, and accelerating concrescence of wound.
In addition, Hyaluronic Acid has special function of holding water.
The macromolecule Hyaluronic Acid can hold water up to 6 ml/g,
which makes it an ideal natural moisture factor (NMF). In this
regard, Hyaluronic Acid can improve the metabolism of skin making
skin soft, tender, smooth and stretch. Cosmetic containing Hyaluronic
Acid is regarded as biology imitating cosmetic and it is very
popular around the world.
A present, there are two ways to produce Hyaluronic Acid. One
is distillation from animal tissues and the other is bacteria
For long time, the Hyaluronic Acid was mainly obtained by distillation
of animal tissue such as cow eyes, cockscomb. However this method
has many unconquerable defects. Firstly, the source of material
is limited and Hyaluronic Acid content is low. Secondly, the Hyaluronic
Acid in animal tissue usually combines with albumen amylose, which
increased the cost of distilling and refining. Finally, Hyaluronic
Acid from animal tissues is possibly contaminated. Therefore the
distillation method is restricted.
To satisfy the increasing market demand of Hyaluronic Acid, zymotechnics
method is developed.
Advantages of zymotechnics method include: abundant source of
raw material, low cost, simplified process, and easy scaling up
1) Holding water
Environment relative humidity has little affect on HA function.
Different from other moisture agent such as glycerin, glyceric
acid or polyglycol, HA absorbs greatest moisture at low relative
humidity (33%) but lowest moisture at high relative humidity (75%),
which is perfect for satisfying the skincare demand in various
season and various humidity.
2) Skin nutrition
HA is inherent part of skin. Small molecular HA can penetrate
into epidermis to advance nutrition supply and waste egests, which
prevent skin aging and keep beauty.
3) Prevent and recover skin damage
HA can advance epidermis cell proliferation and differentiation
as well as advancing injured skin regeneration.
4) Lubricate and form a membrane on the surface of skin to prevent
1) Albumen polysaccharid is evidently increased when HA is injected
into the pathological arthrosis.
2) Relax arthrosis ache.
3) Resist rankle.
1) Provide base of viscosity reagent in eye operation.
2) Cure the conjunctiva xerosis.
3) Provide medium for the preparation of eye medicine. HA attenuant
is similar to the tear regarding to viscosity and retractility
Prevent postoperative conglutination
