On Saturday I bought a jar of Hyaluronic Acid cream in Holland & Barratt - £9.99 for 3 oz.
It's made by Prime Natural Health Labs (USA),
There was no box, but on the jar it says it is a high strength moisturising cream, but no indication of just how 'high'. There is a long list of ingredients, and Sodium Hyaluronate comes 9th on the list.
It also says this product moisturises the skin from the inside out, and should be applied twice a day.
What concerns me is that it also says the cream is capable of holding up to 1000 times its weight in water. So does this mean that the plumping effect only lasts for as long as you use the cream, and that the skin 'deflates'
like a pricked balloon when you stop using it? Laughing Or does it actually restructure the skin over time?
Should I only use this once a day, and use my usual Vitamin A cream at night, to be on the safe side?
I know that H.A. has been discussed on another thread, but this particular issue wasn't mentioned.
TIA

Hello Ximing,
The HA cream absorbs well - my skin is dry and prone to rosacea.
It has a light scent which fades quickly.
It's too early to say whether it is effective or not, but at least it has not made my rosacea flare up.

I just wish someone would answer my sodding question Sad

From what I have ready hyaluronic acid does plump the skin, because it hydrates. I would assume if you have dehydrated skin and use this daily, that your skin will always stay hydrated, therefore stay plump. Hyaluronic Acid cream is wonderful and essential for skin hydration, the only thing is that it should not be listed 9th on the list in ingredients. It should really be number 1 or 2. The further way it is from the top, the less it contains. You may want to look into another brand that has it higher on the list after you finish that jar. Hope this helps!

Hyaluronic acid (scientifically named "hyaluronan") is a sugar-like molecule that can bind huge amount of water (1000-fold of its own weight).

When applied to the surface of human skin, it feels smooth and sensuous but will slowly wets the skin's outer protective proteins and damages the skin barrier. It does not help skin health.

"Injectable form of hyaluronic acid are sold as "not-from-animals" but they are from pathogenic bacteria. The FDA warns that the material contain small amounts of bacterial protein and this can produce allergic responses in time.

Hyaluronic acid in tissues speeds the spread of cancer cells. Anti-cancer therapies are being developed to lower hyaluronic acid in tissue to stop cancer growth.
Go the http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi and type in "hyaluronan cancer" and you will get about 1,100 recent references."


The above is a quote from Dr. Loren Pickart on the Skin Biology site. This has scared me of HAs..

Hello kdd,
Thanks for your reply - I, too, was doubtful about the HA coming 9th in the list of ingredients.

Hello Alien,
Thank you for the link - I looked it up and although I'm no chemist, it seems to me that scientific opinion is divided on whether HA is a good thing or a bad thing Confused
But to be on the safe side I won't be using the cream any more. My health is even more important to me than my vanity, and that's saying something.LOL.
