DS V-LINE HYA-THREADs and 7 times reinforced Let’s examine one of the contents.
1. Hyaluronic acid exists in various forms, each offering distinct cosmetic benefits.
* In its unmodified form (INCI: Hyaluronic Acid): This compound has a high molecular weight (>1,800 kDa) and primarily functions on the epidermal surface, preventing moisture loss. It forms a protective barrier, preventing skin dryness, and contributes to a tightening effect by hydrating the upper skin layers.
2. Hydrolyzed form (INCI: Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid): This is a product of hyaluronic acid subjected to hydrolysis through acids, enzymes, or other methods, resulting in smaller molecular fragments. Medium molecular weight acid (>1,000 – 1,800 kDa), known as
hyaluronic acid, is derived from this process. It is deposited within the skin’s connective tissue, reducing moisture evaporation.
3. Alkaline form (INCI: Sodium Hyaluronate): Cosmetic products often utilize hyaluronic acid salts due to their stability and compatibility with formulations. They exhibit superior resistance to oxidation compared to other hyaluronic acid types. This variant has a notably lower molecular weight than pure hyaluronic acid and hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, classified as low molecular weight (>100 – 1,000kDa). It penetrates deep into the epidermis, stimulating the skin’s hyaluronic acid production, resulting in reduced wrinkles and improved skin
4. Cross-linked form (INCI: Sodium Hyaluronate Cross Polymer): Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid salts are cross-linked to create higher molecular weight molecules.
5. Acetylated form (INCI: Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate): A relatively recent innovation in the cosmetic industry, acetylated hyaluronic acid combines both lipophilic and hydrophilic properties. It exhibits a strong affinity for the skin and remarkable absorption capacity,
absorbing three times more water than standard hyaluronic acid. In addition, recent research conducted in 2021 has indicated its potential to inhibit MMP-1 release, an enzyme responsible for collagen breakdown in mature skin and skin exposed to UV radiation and environmental pollutants. Acetylated hyaluronic acid has shown promise in reducing crow’s feet and nasolabial folds, making it particularly effective in combating visible signs of skin aging. It is a promising ingredient in the field of skincare.
