    Is an essential component of connective tissue. For cosmetic purposes, it is no longer made from rooster combs but produced biotechnologically.

    Even 1% aqueous solutions of hyaluronic acid form a viscoelastic network through intermolecular clustering that binds the water extremely tightly. Hyaluronic acid is therefore recommendable as a moisturizer for skin care, because it forms an invisible, air-permeable film that protects the dermis from dehydration even at low relative humidity. Hyaluronic acid is non-toxic, non-allergenic, and non-irritating. Sodium hyaluronate is also used.

    Ist ein physiologischer Bestandteil der Gelmatrix in der Lederhaut und bewahrt der Haut ihre Elastizität. Es handelt sich um ein Mucopolysaccharid, welches schon in Konzentration von 1% elastische Gele mit Wasser bildet. Es wird aber aufgrund seines hohen Preises nur als feuchtigkeitsbindender Wirkstoff in Konzentrationen ab 0,1 % verarbeitet.
  • Deutsche Gesellschaft für Hautgesundheit (DGfH)

    Fast alle Haut- und Alterungsprobleme sind auf ernährungsspezifischen Mangelerscheinungen der Haut zurückzuführen. Darum haben Nährstofflieferanten wie Vitamine, Spurenelemente, Aminosäuren, sekundäre Pflanzenstoffe und hochwertige essentielle Fettsäuren in kosmetischen Produkten eine hohe Bedeutung für eine gesunde Haut.
