Sodium Hyaluronate may be Hyaluronic Acid’s lesser-known cousin, but it’s deserving of the spotlight, too. Both are highly effective humectants that moisturize the skin without feeling heavy or greasy; the difference is in Sodium Hyaluronate's smaller molecular size.
+ What is the benefit of using sodium hyaluronate?
Sodium Hyaluronate can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water to help support—and improve—skin’s natural moisture levels. Its smaller molecular weight allows it to penetrate the top layer of skin and boost hydration from within. The result? A visibly healthier and smoother, plumper-looking complexion.
+ Is sodium hyaluronate a salt?
Sodium Hyaluronate is a water-soluble salt derived from Hyaluronic Acid.
+ What is the difference between Hyaluronic Acid and Sodium Hyaluronate?
The difference is their size. Hyaluronic Acid has a higher molecular weight that allows it to sit atop the surface of the skin and prevent water loss. Sodium Hyaluronate is smaller—giving it the ability to penetrate the top layer of skin and help improve hydration from within.
+ Is sodium hyaluronate safe in skincare?
Yes, Sodium Hyaluronate is safe for use in topical skin care.
