Hyaluronic acid is a natural and ubiquitous compound found in mammals, and is a critical component in the extracellular matrix of our skin. Hyaluronic Complex is comprised of gluconic acid, mannan, xylose, fucose, and other sugars, a mixture of differentiated interrelated saccharides. This is a crucial difference because hyaluronic acid in the body is far more complex than what you get from inexpensive factory-made hyaluronic acid.
We offer hyaluronic complex for the hair because we focus intensely on scalp health. The scalp needs hyaluronic acid, not for cosmetic reasons, but for its healing and regenerating qualities. It helps create a scalp that is fully moisturized and revitalized with energized follicles. By cultivating scalp health, the preconditions for healthy hair are created. And you can place on the facial skin before application of serums for extraordinary benefits that are visible.
Companies are now marketing low molecular weight HAs. Their reasoning is logical. The smaller the molecule, the deeper it will penetrate the skin. That may be true, but that is not the whole story. HA is created in the skin fibroblasts. But it also produced by stem cells from bone marrow in order to repair wounding or other skin damage. When applied to your scalp or skin, HA is a powerful humectant that cross links with other HA molecules to form a protective dermal barrier. When applied in its “high-weight” form (ours is 1.2 million Daltons), it builds a hydrating, shielding layer on the skin. When HA is applied to skin where there is some cellular damage (UV degradation, chapping, abrasion, dermatitis) an enzyme will break HA down into smaller molecules. This promotes an anti-inflammatory response that accelerates healing and dermal regeneration. However, when lower weight HA is applied directly to the skin, it causes the opposite reaction, an inflammatory response. In other words, it is best to let the body figure out what it wishes to do with HA and Silver Ear Hyaluronic Complex does just that. There is a fine line between feeding the skin what It needs to be nourished and trying to outthink the skin.
