We just received our Hyaluronic Acid shipment. I will have it up on the web site for sale as soon as I recover from the Liquid Crystal revamp. Possibly tomorrow afternoon.

Wow can't wait, what % will it be? and what quantities will it be available in?

It was posted yesterday (see new active announcements).
It is sold in quantities of 1g for $7.50. 1g will make a 1% formula when added to 4oz of cream. Alternatively, in can be used in smaller amounts as a thickener.

Just got mine today.  We're going to need bigger quantities of this stuff

Isn't there already hyaluronic acid in the canvas cream?  Is it ok to add more and is it necessary?

Canvas contains hyaluronic and so does Dermagen. Sea kelp bioferment is rich in polysaccharides that will be converted by the skin into hyaluronic acid.

We added hyaluronic acid (powder) to our actives to give more flexibility to our clients who like to formulate their own serums.

So how important is molecular weight in determining the quality of hyaluronic acid?  (I'm guessing it's pretty important).  Can you tell us where the SAS product fits in the range?

Note to Hannah:  It probably makes you crazy that we read this kind of stuff, but honestly, that's part of how some of us ended up here!

When hyaluronic acid is injected to replace lost hyaluronic acid in the joints it is important (Synvisc) it is important that the hyaluronan resembles our natural polysaccharide, so the molecular weight is important because it affects the physical proprties (elasticity, viscosity) of the solution. On the other hand, I can't see how the molecular weight of hyaluronan applied topically could matter very much at all.

So you don't buy this:

 

 "Depending on source and production technology of hyaluronic acid, its molecular weight can range from 70 up to 4000kDa. The longer molecular chain is and the shorter the variation of molecular weight is, the better is the formation of a polymerous net, the more the viscosity of the solution at low concentration is and the bigger the surface of the skin can be covered by continuous moisturising coat without disturbing overall skin gas exchange."

Not really. You could get skin protection with other, less expensive chemicals, so for me the usefulness of hyaluronic acid is more in the capcity of the skin to use it.
