hyaluronic acid, leg wellness & cellulite
Hyaluronic acid (hyaluronate) is the most important moisturising molecule in the human body, an essential component of skin and connective tissue, and a invaluable anti-ageing and connective tissue restructuring active ingredient. Hyaluronic acid comes in various sizes (molecular weights) with the higher sizes forming a film on the skin and the smaller ones penetrating in the deeper dermal layers. Low molecular weight (LMW) hyaluronic acid comprise small size hyaluronic acid molecules and can penetrate deeper than normal hyaluronate. In addition, LWM hyaluronan is an excellent penetration absorber for other active ingredients in body / face creams. LMW hyaluronic acid is therefore of great importance as an active ingredient in anti-cellulite, leg wellness, anti-ageing and under-eye creams.

LMW hyaluronic acid: The science
Phlebitis ulcers heal with the aid of herbal cream consisting of horse chestnut, butcher's broom, allantoin and hyaluronic acid
This herbal compound, in combination with compression garments, significantly improved inflammation, healing time and pain in phlebitis, in relation to compression garments alone. Ivy extract in the cream contributed to pain reduction; horse chestnut, butcher's broom and grape seed extract reduced inflammation; and allantoin, gotu kola and hyaluronic acid aided sore healing. In patients who applied both the cream and the compression garment pain stopped in 72 hours, inflammation disappeared in one week, tissue swelling stopped in one week and healing was complete in 4 weeks.
