Peptides are small chains of amino acids, designed to penetrate the skin, carrying specific messages to skin cells. They perform various biological functions, like the stimulation of the production of all types of collagen related to the skin (I, III, IV, VII, XVII), strengthening of the Dermal-Epidermal Junction, activation of cell renewal, DNA and cell protection etc.

Why Philab uses hyaluronic acid of very low molecular weight?

Hyaluronic acid’s molecular weight is measured in kilodaltons (kDa). It is available in the global market in different molecular weights, such as high, medium, low, and very low.

In order to penetrate the stratum corneum and reach the lower layers of the skin, a very low molecular weight of hyaluronic acid (less than 50kDa) is needed.

Philab uses hyaluronic acid of very low molecular weight, 10-20kDa. The result is deep hydration, improvement of skin elasticity and wrinkles reduction.
