High vs. Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid

Low-molecular weight HA has been broken down into smaller fragments. As a result, these smaller fragments can no longer form a gel with water like the large molecules. However, Low-molecular weight hyaluronic acid can penetrate the skin much easier and actually have a better anti-irritant and regenerating effect once absorbed by skin.


High-molecular hyaluronic acid has a better hydrating effect than the low-molecular form of HA.
