What is Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate?

Also known as super hyaluronic acid, sodium acetylated hyaluronate is a derivative which has been synthesized from the Natural Moisturising Factor that naturally occurs on the outer layer of the skin. By resulting in the acetylation reaction it not only contains lipophilic and hydrophilic properties making it one of the most potent version of hyaluronic acid. This results in it being absorbed into the lower layers making the skin feel fresh and non-sticky whilst repairing the skin barrier, improving skin elasticity and giving you a smoother skin texture. When comparing sodium acetylated hyaluronate with other forms of HA you will find it has a greater capacity to retain moisture and keeps the skin hydrated for longer periods of time.
