Jarchem’s Actique™ Hyal Sodium Hyaluronates originate from all-natural fermentation processes, using non-animal, and non-GMO sources and are ECOCERT Approved. In general, sodium hyaluronate is known to be able to stabilize up to 1,000 times its own weight in water. Not only does it retain water, but it also keep collagen from cracking and drying out. As a result, it is recognized as a Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF) and anti-aging ingredient.
Actique™ Hyal Max is a high viscosity yielding and high water-binding Sodium Hyaluronate with a MW from 1.8 – 2.5 Million Da.
Actique™ Hyal 1M is a medium viscosity yielding and medium water-binding Sodium Hyaluronate with a MW from 850,000 – 1.6 Million Da.
Actique™ Hyal Mini is an oligosaccharide of Hyaluronic Acid with excellent skin absorption, hydration, and anti-wrinkle effects. What makes this product unique is the low molecular weight below 10,000 Daltons. Also, the size of ~20 nm is below the average molecular spacing on the skin of 40-50 nm. Therefore, once Actique™ Hyal Mini is applied to the skin, it penetrates into the stratum corneum. The small molecular features keep water inside that can not wash off easily, and sustains the hydration effect fro 3 days or longer after application. It can also be used in conjunction with common Sodium Hyaluronate to provide “double hydration” from the outside in.

Actique™ Hyal 1% (INCI: Sodium Hyaluronate (and) Water) is a premade 1% solution of Sodium Hyaluronate and water. Preserved with Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin.
