Hyaluronic acid is degraded by hyaluronidase through a mechanism of breaking the glucosaminidic bond and stimulating tissue absorption in the area. The destruction of this bond changes the structure of the dermis and thus allows our product to be infiltrated by the body’s own process for absorption of the residual by-products as a result of the dispersion.

The largest amounts of it are found in your skin, connective tissue and eyes. Its main function is to retain water to keep your tissues well lubricated and moist. Hyaluronic acid has a variety of uses. Many people take it as a supplement, but it’s also used in topical serums, eye drops and injections.
