High and low molecular Hyaluronic Acid
Eucerin uses two different types of Hyaluronic Acid in the Hyaluron-Filler1, Hyaluron-Filler + Elasticity and Sun Photoaging Control formulas to effectively target and plump wrinkles from the inside out:
- High molecular Hyaluronic Acid (also known as long-chained Hyaluronic Acid). This remains on skin’s surface and works to improve hydration in the outermost layer of the epidermis – where fine lines and winkles originate.
- Low molecular Hyaluronic Acid (also known as short-chained Hyaluronic Acid). With molecules that are 40 times smaller2 than those of high molecular Hyaluronic Acid, low molecular Hyaluronic Acid penetrates further into the epidermal layers where it stimulates skin’s own production of Hyaluronic Acid, replenishing moisture where deeper wrinkles originate.
1 Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Moisture Booster combines medium molecular (rather than high molecular) Hyaluronic Acid with low molecular Hyaluronic Acid.
2 The standard unit for measuring the mass of an atom is a kilo Dalton (kDa). High molecular Hyaluronic Acid has a kDa of 2000 and low molecular Hyaluronic Acid has a kDa of 52.
