When applied to the skin,
is reputed to:

  • Smoothe the appearance of wrinkles and generally improve the texture of skin.
  • Be gentle enough for use on most skin types, including acne-prone types.
  • Easily and deeply penetrate the skin to help it retain moisture for increased firmness and suppleness, resulting in a revitalized appearance.
  • Remove loose flakes from dry skin.
  • Relieve itching due to dehydrated and irritated skin.
  • Enhance the absorption and benefits of other nourishing ingredients in a formulation.
  • Replenish skin’s natural Hyaluronic Acid content, which diminishes with age, exposure to UV radiation, and various other environmental factors that lead to gradual moisture loss.
  • Promote the look of replenished facial volume by causing the skin to appear plumper, which helps reduce the look of fine lines.


Scientists have figured out a way to obtain and synthesize sodium hyaluronate to use in skin care products and also in dermal injections. Sodium hyaluronate can be derived from natural plant sources and also synthetically by wheat fermentation. In the case of fermentation, wheat is fermented with specific bacteria, then purified and precipitated. This process extracts the sodium hyaluronate naturally present in the wheat.
Applying skin care products with sodium hyaluronate will help to attract moisture to the skin, resulting in smoother, softer skin with decreased wrinkles and a more plump appearance. In addition to topical products, sodium hyaluronate is also injected to reduce wrinkles on the face. As of 2017, the FDA had approved 13 hyaluronate preparations that are known as dermal fillers.
In the study mentioned, the ingredients produced some pretty amazing results. After observing women who used Sodium Hyaluronate for just 8 weeks, researchers found dramatic improvements in the participants’ skin.
