Sodium hyaluronate is a sodium salt of Hyaluronic Acid having low molecular mass (8 - 15 kDa ). which enables this ingredient to penetrate deeply into the skin and retain the water in the deeper layers of the skin. It is a natural polysaccharide which plays an important role in controlling tissue permeability, protecting and lubricating cells, fluid retention and macromolecular transport between cells. It binds a large amount of water that can be 500 times its weight. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid has an effect on increasing the concentration of necessary enzymes in the skin, as well as on the general health of the skin. It actively helps in cell differentiation during the formation of new epidermal cells. It helps protect the skin from aging factors, the negative effects of sunlight, environmental pollution and the harmful effects of some chemicals. It strengthens and balances the defense mechanisms and thus normalizes the functioning of healthy skin.
