HYA-ACT™

The Hyaluronic acid line for the ultimate beauty boost

Skin Bioactives

Unlock the potential of hyaluronic acid with HYA-ACT™

Hyaluronic acid, also referred to in skincare as hyaluronate or HA, is a water-loving polysaccharide already present in the skin. With age, hyaluronic acid in the skin decreases quite sharply, resulting in a loss of hydration, volume and plumpness. Lines and wrinkles also appear, and skin is left looking dull and lackluster. Usually, when hyaluronic acid is added to skincare products, its humectant properties draw moisture into the skin, helping to combat dryness and dullness. What many people don’t realize is that hyaluronic acid comes in various molecular sizes. Larger molecules stay on the surface and give the skin a ‘dewy’ look, while smaller molecules penetrate deeper into the skin to deliver their hydration benefits.1

DSM has been exploring the beauty potential of hyaluronic acid in personal care since 1978

Our new product line, HYA-ACT™ complements our existing ingredient portfolio of highly efficient hyaluronic acid grades. This powerful new beauty line features different molecular weights that deliver the efficacy you need and the beauty benefits your customers want - and it’s friendly to the skin’s microbiome, too.

 

 

HYA-ACT™ is a powerhouse of various hyaluronic acid forms:

  • HYA-ACT™ M (Medium Molecular Weight of 1.0–1.3 MDa), the medium molecular weight stays on the surface for a dewy look and provides immediate hydration and strengthens the skin barrier.
  • HYA-ACT™ S (Small Molecular Weight of 200–400 KDa) weight is present in the superficial layer of the epidermis to lock in moisture for an even greater hydration boost and calms reddened skin.
  • HYA-ACT™ XS (Very Small Molecular Weight of 37–56 KDa), the smallest molecular weight retains moisture from the inside and plumps out fine wrinkles.
