Very Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid (VLMW-HA) is a valuable ingredient in Philab's skincare due to its unique properties and versatile benefits. Firstly, VLMW-HA excels at providing deep moisturization. Its small molecular size (10-20 kDa) allows it to penetrate the skin effectively, reaching the dermal layer. This deep penetration enables VLMW-HA to bind with water molecules within the skin, ensuring long-lasting hydration.
