What are the Differences Between Hyaluronic Acid Serums?
Hyaluronic acid serums differ in dalton weight (size), source and purity.
Let's start with size, also known as molecular weight or dalton.
There are literally thousands of hyaluronic acid weights (sizes).
Hyaluronic acid size determines the absorption ability of HA.
Referring to the diagram above, you can see the many different sizes of hyaluronic acid. Although most topical hyaluronic acid serums on the market are made with high weight HA or >1.800.000 daltons.
This weight of hyaluronic acid in a serum forms a moisturizing film on the surface and lasts until it is washed off during cleansing. Hence why experts agree that combining different weights into the same hyaluronic acid serum is optimal and provides the longest lasting results.
