Sodium Hyaluronate is the sodium salt of hyaluronan. The name hyaluronic acid is derived from the Greek word hyalos meaning vitreous, and uronic acid as it was first isolated from the vitreous humour in the eye. Sodium Hyaluronate is a viscous solution consisting of a high molecular weight (500,000-730,000 daltons) fraction of purified natural Sodium Hyaluronate in buffered physiological sodium chloride.
Sodium Hyaluronate is the salt form of Hyaluronic Acid, a water-binding ingredient that has the ability to fill in the spaces between the connective fibers known as collagen and elastin. Sodium Hyaluronate is used in cosmetic creams, lotions, milk, water shampoo, skin care/repair, lipsticks, pre/after shave, cleansers and hair care.
