The Content Is Safe For Facial Care?
Do you want to ask about Sodium hyaluronate, peptides, kojic acid, alpha arbutin, ascorbic acid for the face?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Sodium Hyaluronate is a form of water-soluble salt that is a modification of hyaluronate acid. This form is considered more stable and less easily oxidized compared to hyaluronate acid but has a function similar to hyaluronate acid. Hyaluronate acid is a substance produced by the body (especially the skin) which functions to retain fluid in the tissues so that it does not dry out and remain moist. Sodium hyaluronate and hyaluronate acid found in beauty products have a similar function of maintaining skin's natural moisture.
Peptides are active molecules that breakdown proteins. There are various types of peptides, but if you mean that peptides in skin care products are likely to highlight the anti-aging effects of the skin.
Kojic acid is a chemical produced by a type of fungus (Aspergillus oryzae) which has an inhibitory effect (inhibits) the formation of tyrosine (an amino acid needed for the production of melanin or a skin coloring agent). The content of kojic acid in skin care products has a function to brighten the skin and to disguise black spots due to aging, skin damage from the sun, and scars.
Alpha arbutin is a chemical extracted from bearberry plants. This arbutin is a natural derivative of hydroquinone. Arbutin works in a way similar to kojic acid by inhibiting the production of tyrosine so that it has a similar effect, which is to brighten the skin and black spots / blemishes on the skin.
Ascorbic acid or vitamin C in facial care products has a function to increase collagen production under the skin so that it can help disguise fine wrinkles on the face and make the face look smoother. Vitamin C also has an antioxidant function which can help prevent skin damage from UV radiation. Vitamin C is also known to have a skin brightening effect.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
