What is Sodium Hyaluronic Acid?

  • Sodium Hyaluronate is the salt form of hyaluronic acid, which is good for your skin. One gram (or 0.03 fl. oz.) of hyaluronic acid can hold six litres of water. It has the same benefits, such as its ability to help the skin keep water in. When sodium Hyaluronate is used on the skin, it doesn't hold a lot of water. Instead, as a smart ingredient, sodium Hyaluronate helps the skin keep its water balance, which is important for its healthy look.
  • As a result, sodium Hyaluronate is also called a "postbiotic," which means it can help nourish and keep the skin's microbiome healthy.
  • There are two main differences between hyaluronic acid and sodium Hyaluronate. The main one is that sodium Hyaluronate is more bioavailable than hyaluronic acid. This means that the skin can better absorb it. This doesn't mean that it's better than hyaluronic acid, but that many skin care products have both forms in them, so your skin gets the best of both worlds. Both hyaluronic acid and sodium Hyaluronate come in different molecular weights so that they can work on different levels of the skin at the same time. Lower molecular weights penetrate deeper into the skin, while higher molecular weights work right away on the surface.
