Scientists at the Matrix Biology Institute have developed a completely new complex hyaluronic acid system to be used in skin care formulations. Using proprietary polymerization methods, a network of large hyaluronic acid molecular chains is bound into an assembly of very large coils. These coils form spheroidal particles of virtually infinite molecular weight. The spheroidal particles can absorb and release large volumes of water, or water-soluble molecules, much like a sponge: thus the name HylaSponges®. HylaSponges retain a large amount of water even when they feel dry on the surface of the skin.
HylaSponges are an essential component of HylaFusion®. Other components of the System are small and large molecular weight hyaluronic acid molecules. This unique mixture and the proprietary HylaSponges provide longer lasting and more penetrating hydration.
