NIOD Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic ComplexMulti-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex (MMHC2)
Amongst the 15 hyaluronic compounds is an extremely rare direct form of hyaluronic acid. Almost universally in the world of beauty, the term "hyaluronic acid" is used loosely to refer to "sodium hyaluronate" which is the sodium salt of hyaluronic acid. When brands refer to "hyaluronic acid" in their information and marketing materials, in almost every case the reference is to forms of "sodium hyaluronate" which appears in the ingredient listing of the products. While several sodium salt forms of hyaluronic acid are included in MMHC2, the formula also includes 1.0% direct hyaluronic acid which appears as "hyaluronic acid" in the ingredient listing. This inclusion is exceptionally rare for a broad range of formulation and commercial reasons. Direct hyaluronic acid offers pro-repair support far beyond basic water hydration that sodium hyaluronate offers, resulting in improvements to the elastic appearance and the general healthy look of skin.
The formula also contains a hyaluronic support system of adaptogenic water-starved clary sage flavonoids, phenylethanoid glycosides from narrow leaf plantain and several dermal amino acids. This complex system acts as a non-clogging, water-protective barrier to optimize the function of hyaluronic compounds and help support dermal water retention.
DIRECT FORM HYALURONIC ACID (MMHC2)
The rare and direct form of hyaluronic acid, not in the commonly-available sodium salt form (known as sodium hyaluronate), this very active raw form of HA offers pro-repair support for healthy-looking skin with improved elastic appearance.
ENZYME-REACTED GLUCOSAMINE AMIDE HA PRE-CURSOR (RAPID REACTION)
Highly complex compound is derived by enzymatic phosphorylation of N-acetyl-glucosamine through a green chemistry process.
BIO-YEAST HA PRE-CURSOR (MODERATE TERM REACTION)
Contains oligomers of acetylated glucuronic acids derived from biofermentation.
NOVEL HA PRE-CURSOR PEPTIDE COMPLEX (SUSTAINED REACTION)
World’s first peptide complex that is pro-decorin and pro-lumican.
MARINE HYALURONIC COMPLEX OF EXOPOLYSACCHARIDES (MMHC2)
Derived through fermentation of marine genus Pseudoaltermonas sp., sustainably sourced from Brittany, this complex supports water content of tissues in exposure to temperature variations.
TAMARIND-DERIVED HYALURONIC COMPLEX
Vegetable-derived parallel to the body’s own hyaluronic acid offers hydration in the short-term while promoting elastic-looking skin with continued use.
MUSHROOM-DERIVED HYALURONIC COMPLEX
This natural, fungi-derived complex offers an extremely high level of hydration.
LOCUST-BEAN-DERIVED HYALURONIC COMPLEX
A higher-weight saccharide from the locust bean offers non-tacky, weightless surface hydration.
HYALURONIC ACID CROSSPOLYMER
A unique cross-linked non-animal form of hyaluronic acid that delivers water and water-soluble actives through its nonequilibrium gel structure, helping to maintain water content with continued use. Complex delivery of water-bound content through this system allows for smaller-sized technologies to remain effective topically even in the presence of (high-molecular-weight) hyaluronic acid that ordinarily actually impairs absorption.
VERY-LOW-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT HYALURONIC COMPLEX
A hyaluronic complex in near-impossible molecular weight for lasting hydration with continued use in a form never before associated with hyaluronic acid.
HYDROLYZED (LOW-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT) HYALURONIC COMPLEX
Offers lasting comfort and hydration for the skin with continued use.
MID-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT HYALURONIC COMPLEX
Offers short-term comfort and hydration.
FERMENTATION-DERIVED (HIGH-MOLECULAR-WEIGHT) HYALURONIC ACID
Highly-purified fermentation-derived hyaluronic acid offers superb surface hydration and comfort while helping to prevent moisture loss.
HYALURONIC ACID BUTYRATE
Unique anfipatic complex from a reaction of butyric acid and hyaluronan helps support epidermic barriers to improve signs of cutaneous wellness.
HYALURONIC SUPPORT SYSTEM OF ADAPTOGENIC WATER-STARVED CLARY SAGE FLAVONOIDS, PHENYLETHANOID GLYCOSIDES FROM NARROW LEAF PLANTAIN AND DERMAL AMINO ACIDS (MMHC2)
Acts as a non-clogging water-protective barrier to optimize the function of hyaluronic compounds and help support dermal water retention.
Patch tests are an easy way to help predict if you may experience a negative initial reaction to a new product. It is recommended to perform a patch test before incorporating any new product into your regimen. We have outlined a general method for conducting your own patch test below based on the type of product.
- Apply a small amount of the product onto a clean area of skin on the upper forearm.
- Keep the area dry.
- If the product has a specified duration of use, rinse off after this time has elapsed. Otherwise rinse off after 24 hours.
- If any redness, burning, itching, blistering or irritation is observed at any time throughout the test, do not use the product.
