Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to bind water and intensely hydrate the skin. This is the pure powder hydrated with water into a clear gel and preserved to make it easier to use.

A clear, viscous gel with no aroma.

Commercially, much of it is  sourced from poultry (rooster combs) which we refuse to stock. The type we have sourced is made by producing enzymes from a bacteria based biofermentation process. It is guaranteed to be animal free.

Popularly called “The Fountain of Youth”, it is a frequent ingredient in high end skin care products, added for its skin rejuvenation properties.

Inci:

Aqua, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin
The individual materials that make up Hyaluronic Acid Gel are listed on the Cosmetic Ingredient Database (Cosing) here.
Skin Care
Hyaluronic Acid is an excellent humectant and is able to hold over 600 times its own weight in water. It is what gives the skin its volume and fullness. Use it in anti ageing creams and lotions and especially for crepey and dehydrated skin.

It can increase moisture levels in the skin whilst reducing moisture loss. This is excellent in hand creams where it can help to decrease the formation of age spots as well as in foot creams. Of course, use it in daily defence facial products as well.

It softens the skin and restores elasticity to skin, which can reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles use it in intensive eye creams and serums.

It speeds up wound healing and reduces inflammation therefore is a great choice to use in acne prone skin products, gels and serums. It promotes the regeneration of tissues without the formation of scars, makes the skin softer and smoother. It has the ability to stimulate cell renewal.

Its hydrating properties result in increased skin smoothness, softening and decreased wrinkles. Include in intensive treatment serums and masks.

Research suggests that enhanced hyaluronic acid levels will also increase collagen production.

Hair Care
No direct hair useage but excellent to address a dry and flaky scalp condition.

Other
Use at 1% to 10%.

It is water soluble so cannot be used in oil only blends.

If using in creams and lotions, take some of the cooled water from the Stage 2 and dissolve the Hyaluronic Acid to be added in Stage 3 (cool down stage).

Suggested Blends
Can be added to flower water gels with oil based active ingredients as the gel will support the actives without settling. Use the lower amounts of the actives.

Works very well with Eco Marine Algae Extract in eye creams and anti wrinkle serums.
Very effective with instantly visible results when combined with Wu Zhu Extract.

Method:

Put stage 1 ingredients into a small bowl in a bain marie. When they are above 75°C, weigh boiling spring water into a larger bowl and put onto the bain marie.

Pour the fat stage into the water stage and start to stick blend. After a minute or so, look at the cowl of the stick blender (it covers the blade) and see what the mix looks like. If it is granular and separating, stick blend a little longer. When the cream looks smooth and like a runny single cream, stop stick blending and take it off the heat.

Cool down in a pan of cold water and stir with a spatula. When it is under 40°C, add the preservative and mix thoroughly. Put into jars and label.

This cream will look very fluid but it will thicken more overnight whilst in the jars.
