What is hyaluronic acid

2023-11-24

(1) Definition of hyaluronic acid

If the term "hyaluronic acid" is relatively unfamiliar, the concept of "hyaluronic acid" should be familiar to most consumers. And hyaluronic acid is the scientific name for hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the human body, but is more commonly used commercially in its sodium salt form, sodium hyaluronate. This is because sodium hyaluronate has better water solubility, stability, and can be dried into powder for easy transportation. Consult a professional to confirm that there is no difference in efficacy between taking hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate.



(2) Discovery of hyaluronic acid

The discovery of hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate dates back to 1934.

Karl Meyer, a biochemist at Columbia University, discovered hyaluronic acid during an experiment in vitreous extraction of bovine eyes. Then, chemists such as Maurice Rapport studied hyaluronic acid and its sodium salt, sodium hyaluronate, for 25 years.
