Hyaluronic Acid - I am also in your home

Hyaluronic acid is in health food products, beauty products, cosmetics, quasi-drug additives and pharmaceuticals. In recent times, hyaluronic acid has drawn peoples’ attention in particular to its water retention properties and viscoelasticity, which are ideal for cosmetics and pharmaceutical use.

Cosmetics, Quasi-drugs

Why do you think a baby's skin is so supple and resilient? It’s because it contains large quantities of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid plays a key role in body moisturizing lotions, skin creams and bathwater additives with its excellent water retention properties. Its use stretches even to mouthwashes and eyewashes.

Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices (Prescription / OTC drugs)

Highly purified hyaluronic acid is used in pharmaceutical products, such as joint function improving agents, ophthalmic surgical aids, surgical aids for endoscopic mucosal resection and eye-drops. These applications make good use of the water retention, viscoelasticity and various other properties of hyaluronic acid.
