Hyaluronic Acid Serum

Here is the very simple formula to make a Hyaluronic Acid Serum. This formula makes a 1% solution that can be used on the skin as is, or added as an ingredient in other cosmetic formulations.  This formula contains our high molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid 1.0 – 1.5 Million Daltons (kDa) and is preserved with Leucidal Liquid, a natural preservative.  You can make this same formulation with our Hyaluronic Acid LMW, but the serum will be somewhat thinner.  You can also make it with Hyaluronic Acid ELMW, but the viscosity will be about half of this one.  If you use Hyaluronic Acid SLMW or Hyaluronic ULMW, it will gel very little, if at all – it will remain relatively water-like in its consistency.
